Quoting Quiverfull: Mom Has Her Jobs When Not Wacked Out On Psychoactive Drugs?

by Mary Pride of Homeschool World in “Patriarchy, Meet Matriarchy”

Traditional Christian cultures understood this quite well. Mom had her jobs, and Dad had his. If Dad tried to meddle in Mom’s work, she would shoo him away. Although he could help if she asked for help and no female friend or relative was available (e.g., if she was sick or after giving birth to a child), or he could take over if she was absent or unfit (e.g., crazy due to psychoactive drugs), under normal conditions it was not his job to supervise her job. She was in charge of her area of responsibility.

    I love how they think she’s crazy because she’s on heavy medication and not the other way around. Never heard of “Mother’s Little Helper”?

    I want to know what “traditional Christian cultures” she’s referring to. I find her vagueness to be annoying.
