Flanagan was on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" last night plugging the book. Since she believes that women should stay home, let their husbands be the bread winners, have dinner on the table at precisely the correct time, give it up in the sack even if your not really into it, and that feminism gave women impossible expectations of themselves, it's nice to see she is upper-middle class, white, publishing a book, writing regularly for New York Magazine, and traveling to promote the book all while being this fabulous stay at home mom who has been sooooooo short changed by the feminist movement..!!!!! Clearly, there is some contradiction to this....
