Actually, I've never seen a better argument for female separatism. *cough cough*
It's after the jump.

Intellectual? Heaven forfend. I remember years ago, when I was trying to meet men. I learned early on to lie when they asked me what kind of work I did.
When I was in high school, I wanted to drop my typing class. I didn't need the credit, and I could leave school early for work to earn college tuition. The principal called me into his office to talk me out of it.
"Don't you want to be a secretary some day?"
"BE a secretary?! I want to HAVE a secretary."
He chuckled and told me that allowing me to drop the class would be doing me a great disfavor. I skipped class for six weeks, until I was told I'd be suspended unless I went back. I typed letters to my friends until I graduated.
Hey - if she's not an intellectual, she'll be perfectly prepared for a life of picking up the house and cleaning! Maybe throwing all those papers is just practice for her chosen profession.
God, these cartoons are sickening.
That reminds me a lot of my college years.
