The Washing Machine Liberated Women

So said the Vatican, in its first International Women's Day message.

What do you make of that?

No matter how divinely inspired, men will simply not get it.

Sigh.

I would contest the Vatican choice. I had a partner who demanded that I be the perfect housewife; his dinner had to be organic, freshly cooked to an exact degree of heat when served at the table. Then I chance upon a can opener and was liberated.

How easy it is for you to bad mouth Christianity's treatment of women. But not a word about a half-billion muslim females who are treated like children their entire lives. You cowards. Phonies who bask in the warmth of endless victimhood. And the most galling thing? Its coming from AMERICAN women, the most over-indulged creatures on the planet. You make normal people roll their eyes.

LOL! "Normal people roll their eyes." Does this mean AMERICAN women aren't normal?

Mr. Anonymous who castigates women for laughing about the Vatican's take on women's liberation and mentions Muslim women should look up the meaning of nisa'iyya.
