If you're a 25-year-old nice guy and you still can't get a girl, well, it probably means there's something else wrong with you - you're deeply socially awkward, you're ugly or foul-smelling, or you're a conservative Roman Catholic who tries to pick up women by promising them that they'll never have to use the Pill again . . . oops, sorry, personal tangent.Goodness, I can't imagine why the highly educated and extremely motivated young women Douthat meets in the rarified circles of Harvard and the D.C. journalism scene wouldn't be bowled over by the prospect of being continually pregnant for a huge portion of their married lives. Career? What career? Although I suppose these are an option.
Maybe these elusive women are members of some new Lysistrata project.
