    I read about Liz Morgan for the first time in college. She was also influential with the female suffragist movement before if became cool in the early 1900s. She was a bad ass ina lot of ways.

    As a dude, I’m amazed more husbands, brothers, and fathers weren’t killed by their females in the 1800s and early 1900s. If I were to tell my wife and three daughters they weren’t good enough or qualified enough, they’d ….well…let’s just say, it wouldn’t be pleasant.

    The phrase “gentle woman” needs a comeback. This is a great article. I never knew about Elizabeth “Nancy” Morgan. And I love that you worked in calling Betsy Ross a flashy tart.

    You guys do realize the whole thing was tongue in cheek, that I totally made up Nancy Morgan… right? Are you f’n with me? Maybe the humor was a little to subtle on this one… She’s a feminist hero who marries rich…takes a feminist name suggested by a man as a joke she doesn’t even get… thinks Betsy Ross’ independence makes her a whore…suggests spending wisely will keep your husband from beating you (which is his right of course…)

    Hilarious! And while Betsy supposedly had no kids, we all know she was seen several times hanging around the orphanage with suspicious looking baskets. Nancy told me that.

    Holy hell. This is F*ing brilliant.

    “The Gentle Woman’s Guide to Appreciating Your Husband’s Generosity” is my new mantra.

    Now I just need to get my bloodyhellwhywontyouf*ckingwork email to work, and we can start getting rich.

      Have you tried using your usual passwords, only in Spanish? Are you careful not to check your email during siesta?

    You are sly and wonderful and honestly I thought for a moment you were off your rocker (well, I have actually thought more than a few times) but that could be because I am slow or just got caught up in the idea of stowing away a bit of extra cash to keep the cause.
