A Pew Research study published this week found that women are the primary breadwinners in 40 percent of homes, sending the conservative media into a frenzy. But Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly wasn't having it, and on Friday she schooled colleagues Lou Dobbs and Erick Erickson on-air about the subject of working moms.

Erickson thinks this brave new world of working moms is dangerous and unnatural, and he's been on a one-man campaign for the past 48 hours to make that known. "When you look at biology -- when you look at the natural world -- the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male is typically the dominant role," Erickson said Wednesday evening on Fox Business Network.

When these comments prompted a backlash, he responded on his website, RedState.com: "Many feminist and emo lefties have their panties in a wad over my statements in the past 24 hours about families."

On Erickson's radio show Thursday, he hammered the point home again: "It is a matter of fact that children in a household with a mother who spends more time at home than out of the home, with a father who is earning the bulk of the income for the home, are the most well-adjusted youth in society," he said. "You may not like it. You may not like me saying it. But it's a fact."
