Re: OMG WHY IS THE BIBLE SO SEXIST

Um, that's not sexist. It's saying the same thing about men and women here. It would be sexist if it only said it about women and not men.

Re: OMG WHY IS THE BIBLE SO SEXIST

This was one of my ex's favorite verses. I still have the apron she made for me quoting it:
2 Kings 21:13 KJV

And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down.

It was written by sexist men.

Re: OMG WHY IS THE BIBLE SO SEXIST

Re: OMG WHY IS THE BIBLE SO SEXIST

The Bible is sexist, but this bit isn't. It's kind of sweet actually. I don't think people really follow that line of thinking anymore once they get married; all that "it's my body and I can do what I want with it!" stuff is too popular now.

Re: OMG WHY IS THE BIBLE SO SEXIST

Well you do need to realize that it was written 2,000 years ago.
