    I am a most excellent wife to myself! Most days, I soak my own feet, cook delicious, hot meals for myself and greet myself with a warm smile and cool towel when I come home. I'm only human so I'm not always able to provide the five-star treatment I deserve, to myself, but I surely try my darndest ;-)

    I think most housewives from the 1950s would laugh at this. I know my grandma would. It was propaganda (to encourage women to return to their traditional role in home after working outside the home during wartime) - not a snapshot of reality back then. Kind of like reading a Cosmo article today and using that as some kind of insight into modern relationships...
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Its kind of weird but I actually wish I was like this except for some bits like the no right to question him and the master part. I hope you don't think less of me for admitting that. Obviously it is of the time, but I think as a kind of list of considerations it appeals to me. Not sure why.

    True. My maternal grandma worked at least some of the time outside the home and had more education than my grandfather. My maternal grandparents had both been divorced when they married each other and my paternal grandparents divorced when my dad was around four years old (my dad grew up in pretty bad poverty and some nasty social stigma because of it).

    FWIW, the variety we have in clothing now was a marketing tool to get people to be better consumers so that manufacturers could make more money, not really a sign of freedom and individuality, IMO.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Like how everything is so ordered and beautiful and runs smoothly or something?

    You're not alone. I agree too.

    Well, yeah. But that doesn't mean it was any less pernicious.

    I strongly suspect that the original article was either a hoax or facetious. No-one was ever that stupid, even in the 50's. This has a distinct flavour of contemporary caricature about it...

    Yeah, but did you read that snopes article that someone linked to on the first page?
