Overview

"The Proper Study"
If "the proper study of mankind is man," it is also the chief delight of woman. It is not surprising that men are conceited, since the thought of the entire population is centred upon them.

Overview

"The Proper Study"
If "the proper study of mankind is man," it is also the chief delight of woman. It is not surprising that men are conceited, since the thought of the entire population is centred upon them.
Women are wont to consider man in general as a simple creation. It is not until the individual comes into the field of the feminine telescope, and his peculiarities are thrown into high relief, that he is seen and judged at his true value.
When a girl once turns her attention from the species to the individual, her parlour becomes a sort of psychological laboratory in which she conducts various experiments; not, however, without the loss of friends. For men are impatient of the spirit of inquiry in woman.

    Not much has changed since 1904

    True women have rights now and more ability to work, and undoubtedly the divorce rate has skyrocketed. Yet, dating, marriage, and single life are still just as perplexing today as they were back then. Sad to say single women: unmarried, divorced, or widowed are still very much looked down upon. One would think new technology would be a help to those who do not wish to stay "spinsters," and yet I think if Myrtle could awaken from her grave, she might be surprized to see not much has changed, in fact if anything dating, marriage, and being single has become more complicated with time.
