As a younger woman myself, I can agree that most women need reining in - actually, most people do. The average person is a shallow idiot.
I might also add that the trendy "career woman" thing is a result of Westerners living in an industrialized capitalist world. What we call "gender roles" developed in a pre-industrial world where everything was physical. As men and women have bodies suited for different physical jobs, the gender roles developed according to that. There was really no concept of a "labor market" that needed single women in it. Men would hunt for food and plow the fields, women would raise the kids and do the less physically demanding jobs. For a woman, the idea of "having a career" was unattractive, not because women were more virtuous at that time or any retarded bullshit like that, but simply because work needed a relentless physical input that was beyond the strength of women. But in the modern industrial world, getting women out of the home and into the workplace is no big deal. The shit called "work" is done in centrally heated offices, in front of computers. In this push-button world we live in, male strength is simply not needed in the high-income jobs. Women can do these tasks just as easily. Hence, career women and feminism.
I'm pretty sure we'll revert back to our older gender roles if the modern world goes crashing down, though. Scourge put it pretty well.
