Run, Joe, Run!
Well, Suze Orman is back at it again, playing the henpecking man-hater who tells women to get divorced from their husbands for making what she perceives to be financial mistakes. I thought she had started to recover from her man-hating, sexist ways, but I was wrong. I watched last night's show (Sat, Feb. 27th) and she had on Andrea, a real winner of a wife who met with Suze to basically castrate her husband, Joe, without his even being present. Ms. Orman stated that Joe was supposed to be on the show, but decided not to show. Gee, I wonder why?
Could it be that he knew that this man-hating show would pit his wife and Orman against him and he didn't have a prayer? Perhaps. Joe's crime? He dared to want to go back to law school in his forties and his wife made more money than him. It seems that wife Andrea makes $120,000 per year and poor Joe only makes $90,000. Joe has little in retirement and was in the military,then went to film school and now, (gasp!) wants to go to law school. Okay, so what? If it was a woman, she would be told to fulfill her dreams. Joe is castrated by these two man-haters as a pathetic loser who is going to lose his marriage if he can't step back in line.
Orman and the wife ooze their disgust on national television while Orman gives Joe a lecture on what a loser he is (see pic above). Repeatedly calling him by his first name, she sounded like Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person In The World" segment. He was not there to defend himself, nor have I ever seen a man defend himself on Orman's show. Do they not dare or are they not allowed?
All I can say to Joe, wherever he is out there, is that your wife should not have gone on national television without you. When you decided not to go on, she should have declined the castration--I mean, invitation. If you ever want to tell your side of the story, I would be happy to have you on my "Ask Dr. Helen" show on PJTV. If men would start to come forward and fight back against the sexism of the likes of Suze Orman and your wife Andrea, then maybe women would stop shaming their men in public. Fight fire with fire. Until then, expect the media to treat men like dirt, and humiliate them, because, well, they can.
Oh, and Suze is doing some "research" on men and money and has asked men to go to her site and answer the question, "If you had the choice, would you prefer to be the primary breadwinner of the family?" If you have something to say to her, you can go here to let her know what you think of men and money.
