Greta Van Susteren has taken issue with her male colleagues at Fox News after they discussed the implications of a report that showed women as the primary earner in 40 percent of American households.

During a "Lou Dobbs Tonight" panel that included Fox News commentators Erick Erickson, Doug Schoen, and Juan Williams, the group surmised the trend as an upsetting development for American society.

"You're seeing the disintegration of marriage, you're seeing men who were hard hit by the economic recession in ways that women weren't," Williams said. "But you're seeing, I think, systemically, larger than the political stories that we follow every day, something going terribly wrong in American society, and it's hurting our children, and it's going to have impact for generations to come."

Van Susteren responded Thursday in a post for her Gretawire blog.

"Have these men lost their minds? (and these are my colleagues??!! oh brother ... maybe I need to have a little chat with them) (next thing they will have a segment to discuss eliminating women's right to vote?)"

Erickson took it a step further during the 4 1/2-minute segment, as he reasoned that the trend flew in the face of science, and is responsible for the unraveling of society.

"When you look at biology, look at the natural world, the roles of a male and female in society, and the other animals, the male typically is the dominant role," he said. "The female, it's not antithesis, or it's not competing, it's a complementary role. We as people in a smart society have lost the ability to have complementary relationships in nuclear families, and it's tearing us apart."

The study was released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center and titled, "Breadwinner Moms." It showed mothers are the sole or primary provider in four out of 10 households with children under 18, according to a Pew analysis of data from the U.S. Census.

The data showed that the women are made up of two groups: Thirty-seven percent, or 5.1 million, are married mothers who have a higher income than their husbands, while 8.6 million, or 63 percent, are single mothers. Women make up nearly half, or 47 percent, of the U.S. labor force today, and the employment rate of married mothers has increased from 37 percent in 1968 to 65 percent in 2011, according to Pew.
