Larry Solomon: Let’s Return All Women to Barefoot and Pregnant

Larry Solomon: Let’s Return All Women to Barefoot and Pregnant October 11, 2019
Sharing a pleasant photo to offset the nausea induced by Larry Solomon’s words on women.

Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles has had  a busy week. But most of his bad advice is confined to telling young Christian women to find a good Christian man online, defy friends and family by marrying him and pushing out a passel of children. No matter what anyone else says. But this morning my eyes fell on this piece by Larry bemoaning women becoming educated, having careers, and most disturbingly, being able to use birth control and abortion. Larry is against women having any reproductive rights. It’s all marry and breed with no voice, no rights, just simpering submission. Larry Solomon: Let’s return all women to barefoot and pregnant.

I’m not going to quote from his copious verbal vomitous about abortion, scripture twister, and hatred for any spark of independence for women. I’m merely sharing the conclusion. Trust me, your stomach will thank me later if you decide to go in and read his lengthy mewlings.

I have to answer these very wrongheaded conclusions of Larry. I cannot let these falsehoods and wishful thinking stand!

Are we even talking about the same Jesus here? The one that hung out with prostitutes, tax collectors and other bad actors? Jesus wasn’t about punishing folks during his time on earth, or even being anywhere near the religious people of his time, so I’m thinking Larry’s sick punishment fantasies are just that – fantasies.

Feminism did not cause abortion. One statistic I’ve seen when I was volunteering at a crisis pregnancy center suggested that the rate of legal abortions at that time (mid 2000s) was much lower than the rate of illegal abortions during the 1930s. Abortion, in one form or another, has been around well before feminism. It will likely continue, driven underground, if Larry and pals manage to get it banned.

Which isn’t very likely. When we saw who Larry really was we also got to see how impotent and powerless real Larry is. Larry is the equivalent of the troll under the bridge shouting at passerbyers, but much less scary.

Again, if he does manage to help roll back abortion, like he’s claiming, it will just go underground, more women will die and rates of abortion with skyrocket again. Particularly if birth control is also banned.

Larry supporting Trump is actually almost comical! Trump, now here’s a guy that has tried to force wives and mistresses to have abortions. Some great role model, particularly in the wake of his reprehensible actions towards the Turkish Kurds and his admitted falsehoods about his Ukraine phone calls asking for dirt on rivals.  It blows my mind that our president wants to levy sanctions against a place where we have strategic military bases.

Here’s the other thing Larry does not ‘get’ There are plenty of us ‘evil feminists’ (real responsible people) voting on the other side. There are more of us than his group, and it stands to reason that his slate of approved candidates just might be swept out of power on the next election.

But what do I know? In Larry’s world I’m just another dumb woman who’s brains are only big enough to contain bread recipes and scriptures.

    In the US, so-called pro-lifers cause 5 in 6 abortions. Holland has 1/6 of the US rate.

    The most appalling thing by far to me is his antipathy towards giving women education. There is no earthly reasoning for that unless you actively want to oppress someone.

    Marriage doesn’t come with guarantees. Nobody can guarantee he will always love you, he will always stay, he will never lose his job, he will never become disabled, and he will never die. What is going to happen when you are without an income? What is going to happen to your children?

    Ladies, get a good education. Life is precarious enough without setting yourself up for poverty.

    David Frum wrote a pretty level-headed piece in 2012 that pointed out the obvious: abortion is largely a symptom of poverty, of sexism and racism, of maternal distress. (He didn’t focus as much on the racism aspect, but that’s pretty clear when you look at the stats and consider things like the difference in maternal mortality rates.) https://www.cnn.com/2012/10/29/opinion/frum-abortion-reality/index.html

    Someone who is in a position where they have access to contraception that is effective, who is in a position to have control over her relationships and fertility, who has the tools to cope with a pregnancy should one occur – that is someone who, according to all the evidence, will be less likely to have an abortion.

    If there was a God who wipes out evil, Larry would be roasting below, not blogging.

  • SAO

    He wants to deny women alternatives to marrying creeps like him and enabling him to act out his fantasies of being a patriarch and ruling over a tribe.

  • argyranthemum

    According to Wikipedia: in the Netherlands, it’s 9.7 per 1000 women; in the U.S. it’s 11.8 per thousand women. They also cited 188 per 1,000 live births, but that’s apples to oranges.

  • Jennifer

    Yup, cut off all roads so once again we have far less choice. Even back in the day though, Loutish Larry was never a first choice.

  • frostysnowman

    Hats off for the awesome Simpsons reference.

  • Pink Fleur

    Is this the man that said to rape your wife and not look at her face while doing it? This Larry incel wants a trapped female slave2. This Larry vomit2 can’t get and keep a woman on his own merit. Larry needs aid from a misogyny cult because he is such an unattractive dud manfail.

    The sooner women decided they love little girls enough to start speaking out against Christianity; the safer women and little girls will be.

    Considering the things Christian men do to women and girls, the things Christian men say about women and girls, and the pro slavery things Christian men promote for women and girls.
    Christian men deserve no more respect then the creep on the corner who is trying to lure the 14 year old girl to his basement full of chains and lifelong rape.

    Women and girls should stop showing Christianity any respect. With what the bible says about us and our daughters it is the decent thing to do. The bible trash talks us from start to finish. The first time I read it, I cried for weeks and had a stomach ache for weeks. It condemned me for not being a virgin2. Even though it was not my fault I was not a virgin2. A day will come when women feel guilt and shame they ever peddled this toxic trash to their little girls.

    Christianity is pro female slavery. Christian men want the Ariel Castro arrangement. https://www.biography.com/crime-figure/ariel-castro

    The bible is pro little girl rape.
    The bible is pure concentrated misogyny.
    The bible is pro slavery.
    It is a spit in the eye of raped little girls to promote and condone Christianity.
    As a woman and as woman who was sexually abused as a little girl I find Christianity to be extremely degrading and massively hurtful.

  • Karen the rock whisperer

    Trolls under bridges everywhere are offended at being compared to this guy.

    He makes me very angry, because the core of his argument is to deny my humanity. He’d undoubtedly be very angry to have me tell him that the core of my argument is that I am fully human, with a reasonably functioning brain. He simply can’t swallow the idea. It threatens him.

  • persephone

    It’s also pro-abortion.

  • persephone

    Abortion and birth control have been around, based on historical records, for at least 5,000 years. At least. Once people learned that s3x = babies, they started looking for options. Women have had careers for at least that long, as one of the records re: women’s healthcare was written by a female doctor in ancient Egypt. The idea that, during the Stone Age, women stayed home in the caves while men went on great hunts for mammoth is not true. At all. In tribal groups, everyone does what they must. There are way too many historical examples of women doing things, important things. Without women, Larry wouldn’t have his internet. He wouldn’t have central heat. Or duct tape. Or Kevlar.

    Besides, there are plenty of working women in the Bible, including Rachel, Jacob’s wife, who was working as a shepherd when Jacob saw her for the first time.

  • Saraquill

    Does that mean the Cheeto and Pence are women? They’ll be surprised to find out.

  • Saraquill

    I’d rather join a convent than marry the likes of him.

  • Saraquill

    Please don’t forget those who were abused1 outside of Christianity or other religions. Focusing hate1 on that religion makes it easier for people in other contexts to do harm. That’s why my abusers1 didn’t believe they were harming me. They didn’t fit societal stereotypes.

  • Saraquill

    I doubt a colony full of Larry types would do anything but implode.

    Edit: I realize this comment made less sense as a reply than I thought. What I mean to say is that Larry is far less competent than he thinks, and depends on those he derides in order to get by.

  • Jennifer

    Did someone tell you to read the Bible to guilt you for your own abuse?

  • AFo

    Oppressing all women is the only way Larry can feel powerful, since he’s such a pathetic excuse for a man and a human being.

  • Pink Fleur

    https://medium.com/@johnrobertcullimore/yes-men-are-actually-teaching-men-that-god-says-its-ok-to-rape-your-wife-477950d3173e

    Yes. This odious POS is pro wife RAPE. I sincerely believe Christian men idolize Ariel Castro.

    If a man loved his wife he would not be able to f*ck her against her will. Christian men have a fetish with the wife submission verses and completely sweep under the rug the verse that tells them to love their wife. I would rather die and go to hell than be married to a Christian man.

    Please start caring about the little girls trapped in these misogynistic nightmares. When I was little I needed help so bad.
    It would have been nice if I heard voices speaking out against Christianity. I always knew bible god hated me and wanted me to be a f*cked slave2for a man. Shame on women for picking Christian men’s fetishes and insecurities over little girl’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

    Christian men should be ashamed of themselves.

  • Pink Fleur

    Saraquill, I am very sorry. Much LOVE.

  • Allison the Great

    He knows that his looks and personality are such that when one is given a choice no one will choose him.

  • Pink Fleur

    Any women who gets with him is scraping the bottom of barrel and hates herself. But, maybe she is a pervert like Allison Mack.

  • Allison the Great

    I agree ten octillion percent. We need to throw out that piece of trash. There are no morals in there to speak of. Yahweh never exemplified moral behavior. I seriously do not understand where they are getting that there is morality in the bible at all, unless they have it confused with something else.

  • Pink Fleur

    If women would start raising hell about Christianity we could save the world from Donald Trump. Christians picked him and still do even though he bragged about sexually assaulting women. We need to rube Donald Trump in their faces relentlessly. Christians are pro sexual assault of women. Christians also wanted the sexually abusive Brett.

    We have every right as women (as raped women) to speak out against Christianity, the bible, and Christians. This sh*t would not fly if it was said about men.

  • Janet Freiheit

    We’re despots? Really? News to me lol

  • Jennifer

    It’s beyond horrific what you went through and I’m so sorry. When evil people get hold of religion, it makes abuse even more horrible.

  • Jennifer

    That article you linked to offered a lot of great advice and I’m glad he addressed Larry’s horrendous words without spelling out each revolting post of his. Also glad he’s been looking at the Bible through different angles and still exploring his beliefs. If you ever feel like discussing the topic of spiritual equality with strong women, I recommend this group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BiblicalChristianEgalitarians/ A lot of the women there are survivors like the ones here, seeing the Bible twisted to justify abuse or misogynism, and they’ve helped me find so much peace on numerous subjects. If you decide to look around, you can ask them anything you want.

  • Brian Shanahan

    Probably still angry his mammy didn’t let him eat only ice cream as a child.

  • Jennny

    I’d like to ask Larry about my husband’s family. It’s very academic and has some real high-flyers in it with a clutch of top degrees from top universities. Some are x-tian. So, the female ones, god knew they’d be born with brown hair…or freckles…didn’t he also create their excellent brains too that are being used to benefit society and their fellow-humans? Why do all major religions want to turn the clock back to some imagined golden age when wiminfolk knew their place, firmly under the heel of men? I swear if Larry had been alive when the wheel was invented, he’d have railed against it…god gave manly men muscles for moving stuff about!

  • Martin Penwald

    Too cloistered. But maybe a béguinage ?

  • lady_black

    Abortion has been practiced for thousands of years (at least). Laws don’t matter. Punishments don’t matter. Male disapproval doesn’t matter.
    With a history and track record like that, abortion is not going anyplace because a few nosy religious bigots “pro-lifers” are butt-hurt over it.

  • lady_black

    My guess is that religion was created by men. When the first con-man met up with the first fool.

  • lady_black

    What can I say? They’re sick animals.

  • persephone

    Larry’s definitely a star representative of Dunning-Kruger Syndrome.

  • persephone

    Gore Vidal opined several times on Christianity’s abuse of women.

  • persephone

    From his photos, he’s definitely made up for it. I wonder if the wife feeds him a lot of cheese in hopes of a heart attack.

  • Jim Jones

    > Trump, now here’s a guy that has tried to force wives and mistresses to have abortions.

    Tried? Barring better information, I believe he’s paid for 33 abortions.

  • Jim Jones

    When one inadequate teenage boy met another. There are many parallels between religions and gangs.

  • Jim Jones

    For some men, Christianity can be a guide to morality. However they really don’t need it.

    For far too many, it offers virtue signaling with no need for virtue. They use it as a cloak for evil.

  • Jim Jones

    Dunning Kruger Effect.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Whoa! That many? Admittedly I haven’t been totally paying attention but that’s a huge number.

  • Jim Jones

    Not for Trump IMO. He used to be pro-choice until he figured it wouldn’t work for his campaign.

  • 24CaratHooligan

    Sandi Toksvig has this story about a eureka moment at college: Years ago, when I was studying anthropology at university, one of my female professors held up a photograph of an antler bone2 with 28 markings on it. “This,” she said, “is alleged to be man’s first attempt at a calendar.” We all looked at the bone2 in admiration. “Tell me,” she continued, “what man needs to know when 28 days have passed? I suspect that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.” which suggests to me that women were working out how to not get pregnant centuries before men discovered it…
    The whole article is well worth a read, she’s a lesbian2 feminist so clearly up to no good
