Your post is totally off tangent here, Sarina.  I'll give you some examples via direct quotes from the article when I get some time.  Something urgent came up at work so can't dig into it right now.

I did read the article.

 

I think you might have misunderstood the context of my post. I am agreeing with you on the most part and disagreeing with the author. I added my perspective on changing societal roles – to illustrate what points I am in concurrence with, what I am not and just additional thoughts. I did realize that the article offers a lop sided perspective, which is why I thought of showing that society evolves beyond the authors narrow perspective.

I meant your first paragraph here, thanks.
 
I agree, this writer has thought very simplistically. And I'm not sure if it's tongue-in-cheek; it seems to me the writer was trying to be sensationalist.


I'm not sure if the writer is being tongue-in-cheek or sensationalist. It almost seemed to me that the writer was mocking of social change in general – kind of like a Thomas Taylor mocking Mary Wollstonecraft. I find a lot of the reasoning or explanation flawed, and I'm not sure if those flaws are really tongue-in-cheek.

BI, do you then think the article holds true for urban India. That stronger women means families will disintegrate and that men become effeminate?

^^

So based on that

1)      Do you think the disintegration of families will be a long term trend or phase out eventually?

2)      Do you think the liberalization of women should be encouraged or discouraged?
