The original article is still down...but from her other writing it sounds like it came from her personal experience and people jumped the they are wont to do with opinions on the internet.

I can see that this would cause an over-reaction:

One of the more-quoted lines that immediately began zinging across social media read, “Here’s what nobody is telling you: Find a husband on campus before you graduate. Yes, I went there.”

Patton continued: “As Princeton women, we have almost priced ourselves out of the market ... You will never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who are worthy of you.”

She is both technically correct AND getting a rise out of people.

If she wanted to be provocative, mission accomplished.

I enjoyed her article as well as the follow up.
