Mom Draws Criticism Over 'Controversial' Message On Finding Joy In Housework

Clark Sparky 1 Mar 2019

A Christian blogger is facing major criticism after a Facebook post encouraging women to find majority of their joy doing housework and submitting to one's husband.

Her blog name is the The Transformed Housewife.

The owner of the site, Lori Alexander, is a mom and grandmother. The Transformed Housewife is a lot about parenting, and whole lot about Christianity.

The reason I have chosen the title "The Transformed Wife" is because God, through His Spirit and His Word, has transformed and will continue to transform me into the godly woman that He has called me to be.

Needless to say, a lot of the things she posts are incredibly controversial.

Lori also has a Facebook page for the site that shares the same name. Recently, she posted a photo of a note she wrote about being a wife and serving your husband.

It truly reads like something written 100 years ago.

She really pushes the idea of "serving your husband" because that's something women should aspire to, right?

The post contains some real doozies as it claims that "joyfully" doing housework, even if the man doesn't help at all, is a way of serving the Lord, and our world today can't understand this because everything nowadays is about "equality and rights."

Imagine thinking those things are bad? Can't relate

Unsurprisingly, research disagrees.

It seems this type of mentality is not only antiquated, it could also break up a marriage. A Pew Research Center poll found that people rank sharing house chores very highly when it comes to things that help make a successful marriage:

"Sharing household chores was in the top three highest-ranking issues associated with a successful marriage -- third only to faithfulness and good sex."

Ever heard of the phrase "sharing is caring?"

Furthermore, the poll found that 62 percent of people think that sharing housework is "very important to marital success." This makes sense because wives are not meant to be their husband's servants.

"Teach them their role in marriage."

The Transformed Housewife has plenty of other outdated thoughts on marriage. Here she writes that wives need to "adorn themselves with submission to their husbands."

Please make it stop.

Oh, there's more. In this post, she writes that wives are "to have meek and quiet spirits, to live in submission to their husbands, to dress modestly" ... you get the point. This is wild.

Lori also believes women need to rethink their 'calling.'

In this post, she writes that women shouldn't have careers of their own and blames birth control and daycare centers for ruining what she thinks a women's role is supposed to be, which is totally legitimate and not completely ridiculous at allllll.

Imagine limiting young girls and their careers because they should be wives and mothers? How tragic.

Also, didn't ya know student loans are Satan's plan?

This one is a personal favorite of mine. "I would tell others, long before I was married, that I would live in a tent and eat rice and beans, if that's what it took, to raise my own children."

Yeah, something tells me you didn't have to do that, Lori...

"One of the stupidest things that mothers can say to their daughters: 'you can be anything you want to be!' This comes from a feminist mindset and is a lie."

Facebook

Does Lori not realize that if it weren't for feminism, she wouldn't be educated enough to read and write?

Oh this is... just so upsetting.

People have opinions about all of this. One woman noted that serving your man via housework isn't actually required by Christianity.

This can't be real, right?

Another said that she should understand that she is privileged to be able to stay at home and clean up after her husband. Most moms have about a thousand other duties to deal with.

It's a no for me, dog.

Facebook | Paula Morrison Garcia

Sadly, not everyone disagreed with the post, for example this woman Paula. Paula strung together some words that are too wild for me to fully grasp.

And ladies, if you try to feed your husband salad but he objects and wants a cheeseburger, don't you DARE try to change his mind.

Every word makes me more and more angry.

And if the hand written notes weren't doing it for ya, take a look at this "kewl" meme that looks like it was made by a toddler in 2011.

Imagine thinking that's why marriages fail? Not because of men cheating, domestic abuse, or financial stress?

"Your husband comes first, always. Serve him and you serve God."

I cannot believe that in 2019 there are people who still think like this. Guess you learn something new everyday!

Let's all just go bleach our eyes now, shall we?

WOMEN CAN DO WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT.

Thank you, next.
