“Pro-family” activist Phyllis Schlafly founder 44 years ago of the Eagle Forum, a conservative interest group that, among other things, opposes abortion, vaccines and working mothers argues, women prefer to marry men who earn more than they do while men prefer to marry women who earn less.

But do they? Or is it that neither gender has had very many choices to the contrary?

Your Professor always says it: “Treat women like shit and they’ll always come back for more.” Now, the scientific proof is in your pudding, ladies.

From Elite Daily:

Why is it so damn hard to find a good guy? Why is it so hard to get back that relationship that came so easily in high school and college?

Why didn’t anyone tell us dating would be a constant stream of almost-boyfriends and shit-head men who will say anything to get us in bed? Is it us? Are we just not hot enough? Not chill enough? Not perfect enough?

Imagine this: A man woos a woman to bed with tales of his riches, fast cars and a vacation home in Monaco. But he actually lives in his mother’s basement.

Or this: A seemingly wealthy widow convinces a younger man to sleep with her on the notion that they may marry and he’ll inherit her money. In reality, she’s broke.

In both cases, someone lied about his or her status in order to have sex with someone else.

Under a bill recently proposed by a south Jersey lawmaker, such actions would not only be considered dishonest. They could prompt charges of rape.
