Ladies, you know how when you’re trawling for booty your main source of advice is a priest? Yeah, me neither.
But don’t tell that to Fr. Tony Kerin of the Archdiocese of Melbourne, because has he got some advice for you! You see, Australia is having some kind of man crisis. Statistics show that there are fewer single men than single women age 25-34 in the country. So laaaaadies! You know what that means! According to The Courier-Mail:
“Are women getting too choosy? I’d say yes,” Fr Kerin, speaking on behalf of the archdiocese, said.
“I think many are setting aside their aspirations for later, but by the time they get around to it, they’ve missed their chance. In trying to have it all, they end up missing out.”
Silly women! You’re being too picky, and now you’re going to be lonely for the rest of your life. Lock. It. Down.
It seems like Fr. Kerin is making several assumptions about women here. First, that all women are heterosexual. Because why would you want another woman when you can have a real man? Second, it assumes that women aren’t getting married because of a dearth of men. Could it be that women are being more selective when it comes to choosing a mate because they have the economic power to do so?
Economic power, schmeconomic power. You aren’t worth a dang thing if you don’t have a husband — even a lackluster, less than compatible husband — to validate you. You have to put that career on hold and get some bling on that ring finger.
It’s simple, women of Australia! Don’t have a career and focus all your attention on snaggin’ that man. It’s the only way you’ll ever be happy.
