No means … shut up and obey me

No means … shut up and obey me May 25, 2015


I really want to claim Poe’s Law on the website, Biblical Gender Roles. Surely, its purpose is to bring attention to the inanity of certain biblical passages and how fundamental extremists use them. If it is genuine, someone needs to rescue this site owner’s wife.

The anonymous author clearly has a very sick and warped view of women and their responsibility to provide sex to their husbands. Below, I will highlight just three examples of his limp and assassin dribble.

The first article is entitled: “You don’t pay for the milk when you own the cow!” In it, the author declares that in marriage, “neither the husband, nor the wife, should have to earn sex.” Also, he attempts to say the “cow analogy” is not meant to be disrespectful toward women, but:

“Biblically speaking, a wife does belong to her husband (men paid a “bride price” and one of the terms for husband in the original languages of the Bible is “baal” which means “owner or master” (e.g. Proverbs 31). I Peter 3 says ‘Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord [master]’.

And after some disclaimers, he writes:

“The answer to this question is a Christian wife should never give her husband a flat no, BUT she can humbly and gently ask for a delay. There may be legitimate physical or other issues that might prompt your wife to ask you for a delay. But this must be done humbly and respectfully, and always with the attitude in mind that her body does belong to her husband. But a Christian wife should ALWAYS make good on her “rainchecks” with her husband. Also these “delay requests” from wives should be the exception, and not the normal response to a husband’s sexual advances.”

The second post asks the question: “Is a husband selfish for having sex with his wife when she is not the mood?” After more disclaimers, which come across like the infamous, “I’m not a racist, but” qualifier, the mysterious master of seduction, writes:

“You are not being selfish when you act on your God given sexual urges and initiate sex with your wife. Even if your wife is not in the mood, but she yields to your advance anyway, you ought to take it.

You should NEVER, EVER feel guilty for initiating sex with your wife.”

This post even includes examples of how to deal with the, two types of “not in the mood” excuses a wife might use on her husband, and advice on how a godly man should respond.

The final article I want to bring to your attention has the title: “8 steps to confront your wife’s sexual refusal.” This one is much more serious, and the author makes it clear:

“The situation I am addressing in this post is not your wife occasionally turning you down for sex (even with a bad attitude, as opposed to for health or other legitimate reasons). What I am addressing here is the wife who consistently and routinely denies her husband sexually simply because she does not need sex as much or she thinks she should not have to do it except when she is in the mood or she thinks her husband should have to earn sex with her by “putting her in the mood” by doing various things she expects or likes.”

He goes on to say that “a husband needs to use prayerful discernment” to determine why he is being refused sex, but then lists the appropriate steps to challenge a continually unbroken wife. These include “rebuking her before witnesses,” and bringing “her before the Church.”

If all of that doesn’t work, Captain Douchebag advises that a husband should stop taking his wife “on dates or trips,” stop investing in any “unnecessary household upgrades,” stop doing any chores around the house, and even remove his wife’s “funding.” This last one is right before the last step of divorcing your wife, and includes:

“This step may only work if you wife does not have her own income. Stop giving her pocket money. Change your bank account so her ATM card becomes worthless. Cancel your credit cards. If she does have a job, stop paying for anything in her name and make her pay for any credit that is in her name. The Bible only requires that you provide her with food, clothing and shelter. It does not say that food and clothing has to be the fancy kind she likes to get.”

To the author, if you are legitimate, I would recommend looking in the mirror, and reading your own posts while substituting the word wife for husband. Perhaps you could write something about a husband becoming a man worth screwing. There’s a reason your wife doesn’t want your sorry ass. And to be honest, I worry about anyone who would even be interested in having sex with an individual who did not want to be with them. You might as well get a sex doll or go to a prostitute. Or, just take matters in your own hands. Someone like you deserves someone like you.
