Women Are Like Christmas Trees to Men?

Women Are Like Christmas Trees to Men? April 4, 2019
Watch out Larry! The sap is sticky and the needles pointy.

Sometimes when I quote Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles for No Longer Quivering I do not read Larry’s entire piece. Larry tends to rattle on endlessly, writing out ideas that would be better served by his learning some brevity. Larry’s words tend to be disorganized, and he violates the rules in Strunk’s ‘The Elements of Style’ not to over explain or over write.

Larry apparently never heard the phrase that brevity is the soul of wit. No big surprise there, William Shakespeare wasn’t one of the authors of the Bible.

When Larry writes these 3,000 word or more essays I try to just pick out the crazier parts and move on quickly. To quote Kimberly ‘Sweet Brown’ Wilkins ‘Ain’t nobody got time for that!’

The funny part is Larry thinks highly of himself for these epic l-o-n-g posts. He has criticized myself and others for our shorter posts of around 500 words or so. He does not understand writing for an online audience.

Because of Larry’s wordiness and my short attention span I sometimes miss gems like this one. Remember a few days ago when I posted about Larry’s upset that mere schoolgirls dared to protest when ranked by boys? I missed this batch of weird, where Larry compares women to, get this, Christmas trees! Yep, Christmas freaking trees with tinsel, lights and ornaments. Read on.

So your boobs are now considered like Christmas tree ornaments? New one on me.

Larry goes even further to say that this is how God set it up, for women to be sexually objectified. Women all objects in Larry’s world, instead of living, breathing, thinking, feeling fellow human beings.

He also says that he has no problem with his daughter being rated by school mates, or his sons rating girls. He does not explain where his mind would go if the girls were rating guys based upon physical characteristics and objectifying their bodies.

I still cannot stop laughing!
