That is sexy?

From a New York Times article on highly educated women who seek to become stay at home moms and work little or not at all after college or graduate school: "Sarah Currie, a senior at Harvard, said many of the men in her American Family class last fall approved of women's plans to stay home with their children. "A lot of the guys were like, 'I think that's really great,' " Ms. Currie said. "One of the guys was like, 'I think that's sexy.'"

That's sexy?
(I sense some unspoken and unspeakable desires in this remark)

Perhaps that's sexy if one is having an affair with her while her husband is working, assuming, of course, that she is, as they say, a MILF. I hardly think that advertisers are going to feature stay at home moms using their product, or smoking their brand of cigarettes. Sex appeal consists of something more on the order of Paris Hilton washing a car in a bikini while eating Carl's Jr. That will sell burgers.

That's hot.
