I have not read Ms. Flanagan's book, but if I understand her thesis, it is that men are responsible for their families and that their wives should support them the best that they can. What a shocking and controversial thing to say. Like some of the critics on this site, Colbert asks her if this means that husbands should be able to have their wives lobotomized.
It should not even need to be said that men support legal parity and human rights for all people. The editors of this site correctly point out that the only reason "legal parity" is even a concept, much less implemented in our society, is because of the efforts of men to make it happen and keep it that way.
In other words, Ms. Flanagan's thesis is obviously and indisputably correct, and people who attack her message are really attacking the fundamentals of our free and egalitarian society.
