Do Not Suffer a Woman to Neglect Thy Soiled Raiment

A man in Genoa, Italy, found his ex-girlfriend drinking in a bar, dragged her out to his car, took her home, and forced her to iron his clothes and wash his dishes. The man was arrested on charges of kidnapping, which I thought was a little harsh, considering that this is exactly what Paul suggests be done in 2 Timothy whenever a woman becomes so unaware of her place in the universe that her ironing gene becomes sublimated. There’s a reason she was drinking. She had become disoriented and lost the inner GPS system that tells her where the kitchen is.

Must be the same gene that guides men to Fulfill their Destiny by opening jars and mowing the lawn for us women.

You uppity women I don't understand
Why you gotta go and try to act like a man,
But before you make your weekly visit to the shrink
You'd better occupy the kitchen, liberate the sink.

Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed
That's what I to my baby said,
Women's liberation is a-going to your head,
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed.

She should've just told him she was following Paul's advice to take a little wine for her stomach.

But I can't throw any stones here. I, too, once pulled a Timothy Track Down. Found my ex-boyfriend at a bar. Dragged him to my car, took him home, and forced him to pray at all times, to reject false teaching, also, to take out my trash.

I just wanted to thank you for the article. Before writing something new to my blog, I look through many articles found by means of a special periodical search engine. I'd like to know how you get ready for writing new material.
