So, Good Housekeeping has put its seal of approval on Malcolm MacDougall's ad campaign that appears designed to sell more magazines to women, while at the same time, putting them back in "their place."

Actually, I think it's more of a testament to the times that after I read Kilpatrick's short diatribe on feminism I chuckled to myself, "Dream on James!" instead of getting upset as I would have 10 years ago.
