I can't see the small print. Was this cartoon published in 1978? The reflected point of view about the work roles of the sexes seems to date from that time.

It's current, it was just published today in one of the Seattle papers.

The trash can looks a bit short. He could always put her in it head first.

Motherhood is an ancient occupation no longer carried out by the modern female of the human species.
When a woman chooses to be inoculated with the intimately transmitted disease pregnancy and permits her baby factory body to be used as an incubator for her new offspring.
After gestation and birth the offspring is then factored out to temporary foster mothers and day care while the testosterone driven female parent is off back to her real role as an economic unit of wealth creation.
The fathers role is that of provider of biological material for pro creation and lifetime financial support from afar.
If you are a deadbeat dad and you do not intend to pay for your crime of pro-creation you will be detained in jail.
The only real way to protect the beaten up robbed and impoverished male is for him to charge the female service fees payable in advance before the never ending lies start to roll.
Good hunting!

Judging from the most recent post, it should be called a teencession.

Before women entered the labor force en masse, all recessions were mancessions. This one is no different and not worth mentioning. Women have always had a lower unemployment rate than men because they choose jobs which are more secure.

I would never expect a large number of women to ever take construction and manufacturing jobs where most of the losses have been. Men dominate business services too. Women make up a greater share of health/education and government, the two most stable sectors.

You overplay your hand sir.
