|It got my goat|
We are looking for a man whose wife is much more intelligent than him - and the relationship works!
This arrived in my inbox today, as one of many updates from an organisation that helps journalists find case studies. You know the kind of thing - we're doing a story about families where the men all hate Marmite while the women love it, do you know anyone? Or 50 Shades of Gray Hair - we want to talk to someone from the OAPs SMBD club.
However, today's took the biscuit. It's for the Sunday supplement of a big-selling national paper.
I could fill pages and pages deconstructing the implication that a man should be more intelligent than his wife and that if that isn't the case something must be terribly amiss. But I won't... I'm too busy bashing my head off the desk and swearing.
