On the extreme persistence of Early Years thinking.

Of course, there's another advantage to daycare that is yet to be revealed: according to Lynn, it teaches children that they and their needs are not the axis around which this world rotates and that mothers are people like them who get sick and feel the need to do things with their lives. It seems to me that Lynn has used the Delicate Genius as a means of highlighting the problem.

This is because the stupid boy who took it for granted that the highest function Elly could ever serve was to sit with folded hands patiently waiting to become useful to a dumbass who can't admit that she's a person too grew into a stupid man who STILL can't understand why women see motherhood as a trap. Even now, he screams for Deanna to do her job and take the baffling little half-people away so as to leave him in his alcove because he doesn't understand the situation any more than any man in the strip does.

Still, though, this unsympathetic and clueless mess joins asshole John and massive diameter dickhole Anthony in being a better father than a loving, sympathetic husband who helps his wife because bringing in money is the only way to measure a father's worth.
