The girls in the self-imposed hell

As I've said before, one of the greatest struggles Elly had was trying to get John to take her seriously. He, as we've seen, suffered the handicap of being stuck in an archaic mindset that had him believe that "girl" is the appropriate term for female employee. Not only were they "supposed" to be young, inexperienced and in awe of the smarmy, noxious and mildly effeminate little creep employing them, their term of employment was only temporary as they were "meant" to pair off with a man, settle down, have kids and never trouble their little heads with thoughts of employment and outside interests ever again. The reason that it took so long to wean himself from this plastic, fantastic, highly-inelastic world view was, of course, the fact that he was married to an advertisement for the strict gender roles she wanted him to not have. He, you see, was meant to allow her the chance to be free to choose, to permit her to be as liberated as she wanted; she, on the other hand, was permitted to be the sort of dilettante that he originally saw women as. This, of course, means that we're meant to despise him because he evolved and she did not; that seems kinda messed up but such is life in Elly's self-imposed hell.
