They're Putting Stupid in the Water Again, I Fear

My first thought upon reading this article (after it was linked to on Feministing) was, of course, this must be a joke. And maybe it is, and the subtlety is just lost on me. But I think this author-- Jim Peterson-- is actually trying to convince men to cut their wives out of their wills and donate the money to-- ahem-- "men's rights organizations" (otherwise known as misogyny and violence-against-women advocates). The reasoning, if I understand Peterson's "logic," is that widows who inherit their husbands' money sometimes "turn feminist" and start donating the man's hard-earned cash to feminist causes and organizations.

Heaven forbid.
