Following the furor over his comments on female breadwinners in America last May, conservative media luminary Erick Erickson is launching his Scientific Family Foundation.
The story began with Erickson’s Fox News comments about a Pew study finding that women are the primary breadwinners in 4 out of 10 American households. Among other male panelists who insisted that this signals the disintegration of US society, Erickson said that liberals who applaud this rising number of financially self-sufficient women are being “anti-science.”
“Look at biology, look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role,” Erickson explained, taking to his website later to tout the “complementary” roles for women nature intended.
Now, his new Scientific Family Foundation will be the first step forward back to how things used to be.
Donations will go to a variety of pilot programs, including confidential crisis counseling centers to help male professionals with stay-at-home wives cope with the trauma of seeing women in the office, and a state-of-the-art inpatient recovery unit for men with female bosses.
The Foundation will also establish a Washington, D.C office which will lobby Congress to discourage female workers. The office’s primary focus will be repealing equal-pay laws, but reducing government funding for early childhood education and daycare programs (which make it too easy for women to spend time outside the home) will be another crucial component of its mission. Additionally, a Nature’s Way Tax Plan will promote tax breaks for businesses that hire fathers and tax brackets based on gender rather than on income level. A higher tax bracket for women, consistent with the laws of nature, will ensure that everyone realizes the social cost of female earners.
Next, the Foundation’s American Life Committee will join with the Texas state legislature to draft a bill requiring any woman seeking to terminate pregnancy to sign an affidavit confirming that for the next 18 years, her resume will contain a sworn statement noting that she is available for work because she had an abortion.
The Foundation will also launch a 24-hour phone hotline for married women who are considering lucrative career advancements. Any mother wrestling with the dilemma of how much she should earn in relation to her husband will be able to call 1-800-KIDS-1ST and discuss her family budget with a trained financial counselor. He can recommend healthy options like moving to a smaller home, keeping female children out of college, asking her husband to take a second job, and not shopping at Whole Foods anymore.
Meanwhile, Scientific Family Foundation rallies at college campuses across the country will promote early marriage, educate young women on the moral injury of balancing motherhood and career, and urge admissions staff to cap the rates of women admitted to top institutions, all of which will address the female breadwinner problem at its source.
The Foundation will also tackle the student-loan crisis head-on by promoting a second option for college-age females that will replace the detrimental job-hunting cycle with a focus on dating. Federal courtship loans – up to $25,000 a year – will allow American women to live comfortably until they marry, at which time the loans will enter repayment. But as soon as the loan-holder marries, the interest on the loan, as well as the cost of the wedding, will become tax-deductible.
Fewer women on the job market will reduce competition for high-paying jobs and lower male unemployment rates without the need to resort to welfare programs. This will improve the overall economy as America’s children recover from the evil of working moms, and Erick Erickson’s Scientific Family Foundation will ensure male dominance in the workplace and beyond for many years to come.
