Quoting Quiverfull: Women Need Micro-Managing From Their Husbands?

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Need Micro-Managing From Their Husbands? April 3, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Cane Caldo from Things that We have Heard and Known – Cold Service is the Revenge Dish of Vanity

Editor’s note: Remember that disgraceful guy who had all the photos of scantly clad teenagers at his site Is This Modest? Minthegap / Adam Gregorian? If you recall he had a pile of Mens Rights buddies we quoted, some of whom have done like Gregorian did to his almost porn Modesty site and pulled down their blogs after being confronted. Here’s some of the most disgusting misogyny from a man in the church we’ve seen in a long time. He makes Michael Pearl seem gentle. Trigger warning if you go to his blog, this posting is all about denigrating a woman in distress who is trying to work through it. What Gregorian and Caldo have in common is that they are both good friends of known internet misogynist Dalrock. The most frightening thing about both Gregorian and Caldo is that they use the Bible to justify their hatred of women.

Probably projection mixed with some poorly-executed criticism from the husband. Women’s expectations have become so over-inflated that they have a hard time realizing that housework and homeschooling are honest and rewarding hard work for women. All signals are that she stinks at it, and mostly quits when (surprise, surprise!) her kids give her the same poor attitude and begrudging service she gives her husband. I’d bet dollars against doughnuts on that. Then he comes home and sighs or yells “What have you been doing all day? What is so hard? etc.” He’s saying that because he doesn’t want to do what he needs to do; which is step up the micro-managment. Men hate it, but this woman needs it. He ought to be performing surprise inspections in the middle of the day, or use his vacation days to spring a surprise day home with the family while he watched how they operate and correct them. Women are to be honored as the weaker vessel. Often that means recognizing that jobs husbands find simple are surprisingly difficult for wives. Sometimes you gotta lead the donkey along the way, and sometimes you gotta pull the donkey around.
