The Umteenth Opt-Out Observation

Thanks to Cathy Arnst and the BusinessWeek Working Parents blog for first bringing to my attention the CJR piece bursting the opt-out bubble . I don't know what more can be said about the subject, so let me renew my persistent (though narrow) objection to both the opt-out story and its critiques: any story (or critique) that doesn't mention out that men are part of the "opting" equation is -- by definition -- missing a huge point.

I'll also second Greg's point from Daddy Types: this has been out there for months. While I'm glad it's getting some traction, I would have loved Joan Williams' analysis to have penetrated the work-life conversation a bit quicker.
