I'm just "hardwired" to like vacuuming!

Gosh, Kathleen Parker's op-ed in today's PPH [I can't find it on their website, so I'm linking to the syndicated column from another paper] really set me straight. I'm totally just going to chill out about all this gender-equality bullshit. Us women should stop trying to explore gender-equity issues and point out lingering lopsidedness -- it's so tiresome. 

"Sometimes things just are what they are," she reminds us. "And wishful theory is no match for nature's stubborn ambition."

Or for the conservative media machine that paints feminists as overly analytical harpies and would prefer us to just hush up and go burn our bras elsewhere.

PS -- If you think I'm overreacting, check out this anti-feminist vitriol and see if your feathers don't get ruffled too. 

PPS -- Please, no one buy her book.
