Quote# 38865

In the majority of cases, no I don't believe daughters should go to college. But I won't say that it's a sin if they do. Obviously, the Lord does have different plans for each of us, and college can be the route for some to take... but more often then not I think it's just something daughters do because it's what everyone does and they don't have anything else to do.

It's not very impressive (to most) to tell them you stay at home and help your parents. They get this blank stare and look at you like you sit at home all day and read novels. It's a lot more accepted to say what you're majoring in.

I do believe it's wrong for girls to move away from their fathers and out of his protection. I wouldn't believe that to be a good idea. So if college is to be attended I think it needs to be one close to home, or through correspondence.

I'm not against futhering ones education, but that doesn't always have to be done by going to college.

As you said in the part of your article you posted... women were created to be help meets, so before that comes to pass what should we be preparing for?

Whatever happened to the old fashioned idea of daughters staying at home and being a help to their mother and father and blessing the community around them until they had a husband to take care of? I know it's practically unheard of today, but I find it to be much more Biblical. Women didn't use to go to college and I think women as a whole were a LOT more happy than most women today.

Hey Olivia, check the washing machine, I think your brain is done.

Am I the only one who shudders at this mentality as well as holding a seething hatred for the term "help meet"?

Really? Sure, doing charity work can be fulfilling. And staying with the parents is fine, if you want to. But it's the whole, you know, not having a choice thing that is kind of... suffocating. But maybe that's just me. I mean, maybe some women like having other people limit their freedom and dictate what they should do. Sure, Johnny can do whatever he wants, basically, but... Oh, little Suzy, doesn't need to go to college. Her place is getting married and having kids, don't you know.

Yeah, women were all sorts of happy just being slaves to the home. That's why they never rebelled against such draconian ideals and fought for equal rights or anything...

Yeah, Chick Tracts work fine, don't they?

If this waste of a vertebrate is going to reject everything that differentiates women from livestock, let's hope she starts with the vote.

Because being ignorant and getting a shitty job coz you're education sucks is such a better option.

It's not very impressive (to most) to tell them you stay at home and help your parents. They get this blank stare and look at you like you sit at home all day and read novels. It's a lot more accepted to say what you're majoring in.
That pretty much IS what you do all day, isn't it, Olivia? How many have been impressed by you?

I do believe it's wrong for girls to move away from their fathers and out of his protection. I wouldn't believe that to be a good idea. So if college is to be attended I think it needs to be one close to home, or through correspondence.
My father (and thus, by extention, my sister's father) is dead. What now? Also: heard of email? It's easy. It lets you correspond with anyone anywhere at any time. And it's pretty much instantaneous.

I'm not against futhering ones education, but that doesn't always have to be done by going to college.
Then how the hell should it be done?

As you said in the part of your article you posted... women were created to be help meets, so before that comes to pass what should we be preparing for?
What the fuck is a "help meet"? Is that even real?

Whatever happened to the old fashioned idea of daughters staying at home and being a help to their mother and father and blessing the community around them until they had a husband to take care of?
It became old-fashioned, as girls eventually began to become individuals.

I know it's practically unheard of today, but I find it to be much more Biblical. Women didn't use to go to college and I think women as a whole were a LOT more happy than most women today.
Care to prove this, then? Maybe it was just an example of ignorance being bliss?

Because most women want to be more than uneducated brood mares, following a ancient patriarchal code of practice aka the bible.

Unless you can prove that both the parents and daughters suddenly lose their brains at some point in life, which renders them useless for the academic life and live for themselves, your point is utterly stupid.

Ooh, I don't think they were otherwise they wouldn't have demanded the vote and the right to a good education. PLEASE research some history before you make sweeping statements like that, kai?

Nope, that stupid term fills me with a terrible rage too. What kind of idiot insists on using a dead language they can't fucking speak?

Brainwashed beyond repair.

Uhh. wut?

My fathers protection? Sounds like you had a restrictive upbringing. Im kind of sad for you. It's your life choice i suppose.

Reading more bible does not constitute education.

Yes we know you do, we can see that by the way you talk about them.

(See what I did there?) :P

Whatever happened to the old fashioned idea of African slaves stayng at home and slaving away in the fields for their slavemaster and being beaten up by the community around them until they caught cholera? I know it's practically unheard of today, but I find it to be much more Biblical. Africans didn't use to go to college and I think Africans as a whole were a LOT more happy than most Africans today.


See what I did thar? I suggest you live a life in the woman's boots before “think”ing that you know so much better than them.

Know why it is unimpressive? Because some of us want a woman who can care for herself as well as others. And one who is educated. We want a woman not a fucking slave (B/D/S/M slaves don't count).

Could someone please explain to me what the fuck a help meet is?

I'm pretty good with English, but I can't figure that one out.

Right, women back then were happier than women today. So that's why women worked hard for their right to attend college, vote, and be treated as equals in the workplace. It makes perfect sense.

How about letting them take a Bachelor in 'Marriage & Motherhood' at Hyles-Anderson?

Hey everyone, listen carefully... can you hear that? I think it's the sound of a whip cracking.

Somehow, i think that it was a man who wrote that.

And Damen, you're not alone.

Oh! I see what you did there.
