G.W. Thielman – How To Fix Conservatives’ Single Women Problem


Thielman makes way too much out of the human sex ratio here, where females outnumber men in the U.S. only very slightly. Nevertheless, there is no question that there is a concerted and increasingly successful effort to impose matriarchy here.
