This is so the worst thing you're going to read all day.

Everyone in the multiverse (and thanks to each and every one of you!) has sent me this heapshit article: 6 Reasons (+2) to NOT Send Your Daughter to College.

It was "6 Reasons" when it was first published, but the author added two more "just in case 6 weren't enough."

Anyway. This article is self-evident horseshit. And the "Fix the Family" site, run by two straight white Catholic dudes, is about as representative of all Catholics as Bill Donohue's one-man "Catholic League" is.

Suffice it to say, this female lapsed-Lutheran atheist who in part chose the Catholic Loyola University over a number of other, more prestigious universities because the Jesuits seemed the most passionate about actually educating me (as opposed to assuring me a degree from their institution would totes guarantee me a giant salary), finds it pretty amusing to treat "Catholic doctrine" and "educating women" as mutually exclusive concepts.
