I can only presume when he speaks generally that he includes his own wife in these comments. He says, "In this country [wives] are entitled to half of YOUR labors and they ain't done s***... ain't been nothin' but a thorn in your side."
Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that this would never apply to your standard Trad family. He either has no children, or sends them off to daycare while his wife sits at home, or what?? I can't imagine a scenario where a Trad wife has nothing to do to contribute to the goals of the family while her husband is earning an income.
