‘Mad Men’ and feminism

There are two simple questions I have for viewers of the Mad Men show.

1. Is Don Draper masculine? In almost every scene with his wife Betty he doesn’t assert anything.

2. Is this what it takes to keep spinsters relevant? Being in the top 1% of Madison Avenue New York socialites? Divorcing and extracting the resources from bootstrapping, red-blooded, all-American, alpha males?

More importantly, if you consciously and/or don’t condone #2, can you see the the other side of the argument? The realm of men should never be touched by women. Its a condemnation.
