What’s With All the Fresh Scorn for Single Women?

Why can’t you just let us be happy?

Recent internet pile ons have made it clear there are a whole lot of people out there — including some academics and sociologists, as well as all the incels — who believe single women are ruining society. Not an exaggeration. Marriage rates are down, birth rates are down, men are reporting all time lows in mental health and happiness — especially single men — and it’s all because women have just gotten too picky. Or that they prefer cats and shakshuka to marriage, or something.

In this episode, Katelyn and Roxy take on some perplexingly persistent myths about single women (cat ladies? career women? cold fish?) and why they’ve taken hold in Christian circles.
