I'm sure everyone saw this, but here it is again just in case:
I understand from a feminist perspective that the history of marriage is troubling, but so is much of the history of human existence. As an American, I find this proposal particularly disturbing. We already have such a huge backlash here against real feminism (you know, the kind that asserts that women should have equal rights, control over their own bodies, equal pay for equal work, and shouldn't have to be chained to their stoves) and stories like these will be hailed by all the women-belong-at-home nuts as more "proof" that the whole notion of feminism is evil, crazy, man-hating, dumb, etc.
I support 100% a woman not needing to marry for financial or even social purposes and am glad that these women are free to live their lives the way they choose. But they don't even come close to speaking for the majority of women. And if they truly care about being feminists they should concern themselves with important issues in women's lives, not this nonsense.
Sweden is often hailed as a great place for mothers -- nice long maternity leaves, more flexible work options, good day care options, etc. I can just hear Rush Limbaugh now, foaming at the mouth and ranting, you see what happens when you grant women maternity leaves? The next thing you know everyone's a lesbian, blah blah blah.
