Well, young single women anyway. Feminists hate this development because it draws attention away from their core issue -- the “pay gap” where men in (roughly) the same job out earn women. The operative word there is “roughly,” which is why I stay away from that debate.

This Slate writer goes right to the “pay gap” issue and then explains away the fact that young women are out earning young men only because they are better educated. Ummm...Isn’t that the real point?

Yes, they are better educated, which leads us the true bottom line, one that she doesn’t get around to mentioning: the “marriageable mate” dilemma.
