Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned viewers on Wednesday not to get too excited about the gains feminism has won for women in America — because now that women earn as much as men, civilization is on the brink of collapse.
According to Media Matters, Carlson lamented that women making as much or more money than men leads to fewer marriages, which in turn will cause all of society to crumble.
Male wages declined. Manufacturing, a male-dominated industry all but disappeared over the course of a generation. All that remained in many places were the schools and the hospitals, and both of them are traditional employers of women.
In many areas, women suddenly made more than men.
Warning viewers not to “applaud that as a victory for feminism” until they consider how this affects society, Carlson went on to say the U.S. is doomed to see more ruined families, more addiction, and more people in prison.
Why? Because women won't want to marry men anymore.
Study after study has shown that when men make less than women, women generally don't want to marry them. Maybe they should want to marry them, but they don't. Over big populations this causes a drop in marriage, a spike in out-of-wedlock births and all the familiar disasters that inevitably follow.
More drug and alcohol abuse, higher incarceration rates, fewer families formed in the next generation. This is not speculation, it's not propaganda from the evangelicals. It's social science. We know it's true. Rich people know it best of all, that's why they get married before they have kids. That model works.
