Would Larry Solomon Kill Himself if He Were a Woman?

Would Larry Solomon Kill Himself if He Were a Woman? February 13, 2020
Larry’s “Biblical Gender Roles” are about as useful and real as mermaids and centaurs.

So Larry didn’t really say that. He just named  one of his awful screeds on why women suck but he cannot keep his manly parts out of them. Larry got it from a commenter that  pointed out how depressing and demeaning Larry’s theology is, that he’d kill himself if he was a woman.

Yesterday afternoon I finally got my internet back and was coming here to post something so incredibly awful by Larry comparing women to pigs. But I was felled by a big bout of low blood pressure and just went to bed at 4 pm. It happens. It’s the dumb asthma.

What did Larry say to kick off his recent female blame-a-thon? This.

“How often do we hear from women “men are pigs!” and usually this is in reference to men being slobs or men acting in what may or may not be inappropriate sexual ways toward women. But did you know the Bible exhorts women not to act like pigs? In Proverbs 11:22 the Bible says “As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion”.

When a woman speaks out of place that is a woman without discretion. An example would be when a woman’s father or husband are speaking with a group of people and the woman interjects with an opinion that contradicts her father or her husband.

A woman who says whatever she wants, whenever she wants and however, she wants to say it is a pig.”

Larry accompanied this charming missive with a photo of pigs wallowing in mud, in complete contrast to the reality that pigs are quite intelligent and rather clean.

At least pigs are pretty awesome when compared to some barnyard mannered men. Women sometimes use the pig generalization to point to guys that would live like bears with furniture. This is what happens if the women in their lives didn’t insist on napkins, ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, and using coasters on wooden furniture. It’s for their own good, for the betterment of everyone, but male brains aren’t always wired to do the civilized thing in a patriarchal society sadly enough.

Sorry, but putting your muddy feet on the sofa and surrounding yourself in a sea of detritus is likely to make the lady in your life call you a pig. Please don’t do that.

What Larry – boy fails to mention is that women speaking over men is not the problem. It’s a problem when ANYONE does this to anyone else, men, women, children, aliens, krakens, robots, Mr. Ed the Talking Horse, it does not matter what form of sentient being, or sex that they are. Anyone else talking over someone else is pure and simply abusive and disrespectful. Larry thinks it’s only happening with women. Wrong-o again.

But then we end up here today, with a likely catfished comment to Larry designed to get a rise out of him, and make him rant. It worked.

“Why do you guys feel the need to be superior then woman in literally EVERYTHING. It’s like woman can’t catch a break! I’m not trying to be rude as I’m only twelve. Why is this discussion important? Shouldn’t we be talking about God instead of another disadvantage of getting the trash gender? I’d hate to be born female. I would’ve cut of my genitals if I had to. Just so I would get the gender that gets have a relationship with God. Please, Larry just explain to me. Why? Why do woman have to be inferior? Why do they need to be second class. Imagine this, being born with something that you couldn’t control and you having to be nothing more then an object. I’d rather kill myself having to have that gender.”

What Larry does not tell the poor kid that wrote this is that the very reason Larry et al are obsessed with denying, denigrating and treating women like dirt is their own poorly formed inner selves. Powerless little beta males going ‘Yes, dear’ to the wife, yet saying these horrible things about women online are as common as sparrows. Self esteem so lowly that they must take it out on the women around them online. But not in real life. I’m still not convinced that Larry isn’t a hen-pecked, harried and harrassed milquetoast in real life.

“This is why God made men with more muscle mass, more logical and systemizing natures as well as being more aggressive and competitive. All of these attributes represent the image of God in man. Woman was given her shared human attributes with man not to represent God with her life, but rather to make her a suitable companion for man. This was meant to picture how all of mankind is weaker than God and needs his strength, his provision and his leadership.”

I guess Larry missed that part in Genesis where God said both women and men were created in His image. Twisting scripture again to fit his sour little need to self-aggrandize a tiny inferior inner self.

“Lastly, regarding your feeling that you would want to kill yourself if you were a woman if this is God’s design for woman. This is a message I receive all the time. Probably about once a week at least. The reason for your feelings is because you have been raised in a humanist culture where equality, rather than duty is it is highest value. If a person does not have equal rights and privileges with another person than they are being said to be treated as less than human and their life does not have value.

This is why many today, reason that is better to abort a child that will have some physical disability or be born to an impoverished family. Because after all, if they will not be equal in their physical abilities and equal in their lifestyle to others, what is the point of the life?”

Whoever suggested abortion as a remedy for poverty? This is not at all one of the major reasons people chose abortion. Abortion is a terrible choice, made even more difficult by idiot rock throwers who have never had to make such a tragic choice. And aborting for a child with a significant birth defect is sometimes kinder than bringing a child into this world who will only know pain during its short tormented life. Please, if you’ve never had to walk in those particular shoes hold your judgement of what you would do, because you just do not know which way you would go.

But this abortion talk of Larry’s is just another distraction, and has nothing to do at all with his constant disrespect of women.

If Larry is receiving this message all the time he needs to give it some thought as to why that would be. Surely he cannot fail to realize that if you constantly keep up a demeaning, disgusting, degrading stream of messages about women someone will notice, and notice you hate women. Others notice when you must put women down to try and inflate your own low self esteem.

    Larry accompanied this charming missive with a photo of pigs wallowing in mud, in complete contrast to the reality that pigs are quite intelligent and rather clean.

    And smarter than Larry.

  • Rann

    That doesn’t take much, Jim!

  • David S.

    Isn’t poverty one of the main causes of abortion? Not only in making birth control hard to acquire, but in making women scared to bring another child into a family where they’re worried about how they’re going to feed and clothe the children they already have?

  • Zeldacat

    If being a woman who speaks her mind makes me a pig all I can say is “OINK!”

  • Astreja

    *snuffling, rooting sounds intensify*

  • Jennifer

    “Larry’s “Biblical Gender Roles” are about as useful and real as mermaids and centaurs”

    They’re far more useful to enriching life, IMO lol.

  • Mimc

    I don’t think he means interrupting but rather expressing an opinion at all. Apparently we aren’t allowed to have those in Larry’s presence. Of course I’d rather just avoid his presence and have as many opinions as I like well away from him or any of his emotionally stunted fans.

  • AFo

    Larry’s comparison between men and women’s behavior is so unequal. The male “pig” behavior is general uncleanliness or inappropriate sexual behavior. The female “pig” behavior is disagreeing with a man. Double standards and hypocrisy galore.

  • persephone

    Per this abstract at Guttmacher https://www.guttmacher.org/perspectives50/womens-reasons-having-abortion yes, income is one of two main reasons for abortion. There’s a link to a publication containing several papers on family planning, if you’re interested in more detail.

    Forced birthers focus on abortions later in pregnancy, not the 98% that occur in the first trimester. Later abortions/inductions are practically all health-related, either the health of the mother or the fetus.

  • persephone

    I got in trouble with my mother over something I said in a JW meeting. The man who was reading pronounced a Greek name wrong. Then a question was asked. I answered the question then mentioned that I believed the name was pronounced [name].

    Frankly, the insecurities of these “men” drives patriarchy. To live in fear of the opinion of half the population of the world indicates a real lack of strength.

    Every time a man claims that men are more logical, I hurt myself laughing.

  • persephone

    Pigs are really good at disposing of bodies9. Larry doesn’t seem to know about that. Perhaps we should let him see it firsthand.

  • My initial thought upon reading the title was “We can hope.”

  • Rann

    Mermaids and centaurs can be characters in entertaining stories and movies. Larry’s Biblical Gender Roles, not so much…..

  • Rann

    News for you, persephone…..most of them live in fear of their own shadows…..

  • Debra Wehrly

    I did not know that pigs were able to GB I’ve their opinions. That news to me

  • bekabot

    Larry can’t be a pig: truffles are too good for him.

  • Saraquill

    Larry says duty is a high value, yet his heart is stuffed with d0ody.

  • Saraquill

    Don’t forget the insecurities of the women who uphold this status quo. Growing up, my mom was all about teaching me second wave white feminism. Then she remarried and had a fit if I so much as asked him to clean his own mess.

  • Saraquill

    Don’t the pigs deserve better?

  • Saraquill

    Pink is evil, pants are inherently superior, you’re poor because you don’t have a “manly” job…

    My favorite part of a documentary about 1970s feminism in Japan was one woman’s take on American feminism. “They all want to be men. I like being a woman.”

  • persephone

    Not news to me at all.

  • Jim Jones

    Also may be why crime rates have dropped. There are far fewer unwanted, not cared for or abandoned kids.

  • Jim Jones

    Not just his heart.

  • Larry Solomon’s latest rant reminds me of Charles Manson being quoted that women exist only to “whelp and serve men”.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Figures. Manson took a lot of his ideas and rules from the fundamentalist church he was raised in.

  • Iain Lovejoy

    The word means “judgement” or “discernment”: the point of the proverb is that good looks on a stupid or vacuous woman, or who lacks common sense are as pointless as pretty jewelry on a pig.

  • 24CaratHooligan

    Ah but if they can’t afford a child then those evul wh0res9 should keep their damn legs closed!

  • Ruthitchka

    I’ve been away for a few days. Reading Larry’s latest makes me glad to be a “divorced loser.”
