Yesterday Bennett Madison, author of the Lulu Dark books, as well as one of the funniest blogs around, posted an entry pointing to a truly scary article in Forbes*.

Don't believe me? Take a look at the opening line -- the article can now be seen here as Forbes pulled it soon after it appeared:

Guys: A word of advice. Marry pretty women or ugly ones. Short ones or tall ones. Blondes or brunettes. Just, whatever you do, don't marry a woman with a career.

Apparently, there was also a slideshow, and though that was yanked as well, another fabulously quick-thinking blogger saved it, and you can view the text of the horrifyingly titled "Nine Reasons to Steer Clear of Career Women: Slideshow" here.

I don't think I need to go into the EXTREME wrongness of this, but I will point you here again in case you'd like to email/write/call Forbes and ask them what in the world they were thinking. Because really, what were they?

*Forbes has since "updated" the article. I personally think it's way too little, too late.

I read the link on www.gawker.com and they noted that the reporter had previously written an article about how whores are kind of awesome versus wives. If I hadn't just woken up, I would link, but yeah, Gawker, all over it.

Their CliffsNotes: "Don't Marry Career Women" took forever to load, at least on my outdated browser--but was totally worth the wait.
