Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles has put up a helpful little list of what he believes is the main measurement of what society thinks is the best characteristics in women. It romanticizes the 1950s, assuming all people in that long-ago more innocent era were concerned with marrying the best cooks who were the most submissive and fertile. Here it is.
Yeah, two observations? It’s my observation that Larry has skewed the results yet again and ignored facts of those time frames. Too bad Larry hasn’t looked at education rates and employment rates of women throughout last century at the Bureau of Labor Statistics and at universities such as Dartmouth. Women have always worked, and there are those that have always gone on to have higher education.
Is beauty really that important, or is this only important to the most shallow men?
The most disturbing part of Larry’s post is the letter he received from a follower confused about the role of women. Here’s a screen shot of that jaw-drop moment.
Lori Alexander had a different but similar list on her ideas of the ideal wife. Found on Facebook:
Make yourself a house slave, ladies, or you are doing it wrong. At least according to Lori Alexander.
