Happiness Is Being Single

November 29, 1987

Hite fails to mention that those 4,500 respondents comprised fewer than 5% of the women to whom the survey was made available. Any competent statistician knows that a sampling that small will inevitably include a disproportionate number of ax-grinding zealots, thus rendering both the method and the findings fundamentally unsound.

The grievances of these women reek of unresolved parent-child conflicts and an ignorance of healthy interdependence. If they truly accepted the responsibilities of independence, they'd stop looking for that all-loving Daddy and accept men as imperfect human beings just like themselves. They'd also have to acknowledge their part in creating the situation.
