Noer article: If Forbes editors worked at AOL, they’d have to resign

From the same tribe of lugnuts who believe that global warming doesn’t really exist comes this Forbes story advising men not to marry career women. (Note, link has been pulled but story is posted here.)
Rationale?
“The more successful she is the more likely she is to grow dissatisfied with you.”
If the editors who approved posting this pathetic piece by one Michael Noer worked at AOL Search, they’d all be fired ASAP (or leave to pursue other interests) so appalling is the lack of judgement in every letting this silly and misguided story see the light.

Update: Dossy points out Forbes has respun this story and reposted it with a he said-she said debate….Is this new packaging a case of putting lipstick on a pig, aka shameless driving for page views? (Susan sez: Sure it is, but so what…)

    Forbes has re-published the article at the link, juxtaposed with a counterpoint article.
    Forbes has turned into a he-said-she-said.

    Susan, I’ve been married for nearly 30 years to a “career girl.” But the original Forbes article cited reasonable statistics while the best the counterpoint author was able to do was talk about her personal experience and say, “I don’t think I’m all that unusual…”
    The whole thing is really just Limbaughesque provocation. I guess it worked.
