Ken Alexander(Lori's husband) scolds reader about submitting

Recommended Posts

How can she stand this guy?

A reader wrote in to Lori's blog. She said she didn't trust her husband's motives, but obeyed him anyway with apprehension

Then I hunched my shoulders in apprehension and obeyed my husband.

Then Ken sticks his two cents in. Apparently, even hunched shoulders is bad (though I don't see a Biblical reference). He wants her to submit more happily. Who is he to give her advice anway?

Continue to trust God, and in turn your man, with enthusiasm and without hunched shoulders,

It just irked me that this orthodontist dude thinks he can give spiritual advice to lowly women, and that a woman isn't even able to express any feelings of negativity about her husband's decisions

All I have to say to this is :evil:

Seriously, how can you expect someone to suppress their own feelings that much, and for so long. These people just want to always find something new to criticise other people (mostly women) for.

I often notice the "Take care of your husband before yourself" attitude and would like to point out that you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of someone else.

I knew one lady who tried that submission thing once. Her husband went "WTF is wrong with you??"

Yeah... I think the women who actually suppress themselves that way are NUTS. I couldn't do it. I mean, I put a LOT into my marriage and being a mother. But I know at the end of the day... that I can't forget about myself. When a woman lets herself go in that way... suppresses all her emotions and gives her husband and children EVERYTHING, they will eventually go insane. I've seen it happen! And when they snap, it just isn't pretty. Much better to take care of yourself to begin with.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
