WHAT REALLY HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN EARN MORE: “Yet the angle of every major outlet to cover the study is that men are retrograde cavemen who must be to blame if their wives earn less than they do. . . .

Is this perhaps connected to women’s preference for men who are taken? Or for men who kill? Are all these manifestations of an urge to hypergamy?
