The Young Turks' commentary on Michele Bachmann's comment about God mandating that good Christian women are submissive to their husbands.
I'm wondering what the secular community thinks of these remarks by Michele Bachmann about how women need to be submissive to their husbands, and receive permission from the husband to attend school or pursue their dreams in that fashion. Obviously this woman is anti-feminist and has utterly no chance of winning the candidacy. And if she did, I'd be leaving America before anybody else because it would absolutely seal our cultural doom.
I furthermore want your thoughts of her tripping over herself to reconcile the idea of 'being a submissive woman' with it meaning 'being respectful'. I made a comment on Facebook earlier today that couples should respect each other, and if her definition stands, then her husband must also say he's submissive to his wife. Otherwise she admits he does not respect her.
We'll be seeing Bachmann on the Fox News payroll eventually....or some cable Christian News Programming...or both. She's photogenic...sort of...depending on the look in her eye. Did you hear about the controversial photo of her on the August Newsweek magazine: http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=1409814.
It is kind of amusing and I'll probably buy the issue as a 'souvenir' of female presidential candidates to show my grandkids some day...when female candidates won't be so rare and unusual....I'm hoping.
sigh, I'm in lughv... again...w/a freethoughtgal; shux...
Bachmann is more or less a looney pandering puppet. In the case of her being a candidate, she won't win and she realistically she holds little relevance in the long run.
Now as for whether or not women should be submissive to their husbands, this idiot continues to show her idiotic pandering to her very loud base. Both people of the marriage shouldn't be submissive but rather treat each other out of respect and love, meaning there's nothing wrong with giving your wife/husband a massage but it should be out of love and respect, not out of fear or simply because "he/she told me to do it." Honestly I wish she didn't have such a big microphone. She hurts my brain.
