I Just Love Women Like This

From one of the clever geniuses over at the Corner.
HEY, WHO SAID THIS? [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
"Either you are going to be a bad mom and be a really good career woman and wife, or a good mom and career woman and bad wife, or a good mom and a good wife and your career is going to suck."

Rick Santorum?

Nope. J-Lo. No, not K-Lo, Jennifer Lopez.

Hmmm. Knowing what I know of you, K-Lo, it's pretty obvious you think that J-Lo is right. So I have one question for you K-Lo-- which combination are you? Frankly I'd be pretty surprised if you said your career sucks, which leaves you as either a bad wife or bad mother. Which is it then? Or is it possible that it didn't occur to you what this quote means for you personally? (Or is that you have neither kids nor a husband so you don't even have a dog in this fight? I looked and couldn't find any references to your personal life.)

Frankly, it doesn't take a liberal feminist to recognize that it's just a pretty simplistic and sexist thing to say/believe that women can't be married, have children and careers without sucking at one of them. I wonder how K-Lo would have responded if J-Lo had said this applied to men as well?
