Salon's Rebecca Traister makes a visit to Bloggingheads to talk with (former Salon contributor) Michelle Goldberg, author of "The Means of Reproduction." The pair talk about Hanna Rosin's provocative Slate piece, "Is the Tea Party a feminist movement?," Emily Gould's memoir and some of the unintended consequences of sex-positive feminism. Also up for discussion is Traister's cover story for Salon, "Screw Happiness," about the conflicting messages women get about marriage and children. "Everybody's eager to tell you: Just you wait. You think you're happy now? Wait till you have kids," says Traister.
