Do you want a happy marriage? Be a submissive wife, says a new book:
A book advising newly-wed women on how to be "submissive" has become
a publishing phenomenon in Spain...
Feminists aren't amused:
while outraging feminists who have called for it to be banned.
Why does it not surprise me?
The book was written by an Italian lady and is currently a bestseller both in Italy and Spain. Among other things, it tells women to be good housewives:
"It's true, you're not yet an experienced cook or a perfect housewife,"
she writes. "What's the problem if he tells you so? Tell him that he is
right, that it's true, that you will learn.
No wonder, feminists are so upset, it seems they are losing power all over the world, so they use their usual weapons of intimidation and censorship:
Women's groups are considering legal action to get it banned arguing that it
promotes gender violence.
For the information of grammatically challenged feminists: nouns have gender, human beings have sex, male and female. The book was published in Spain by a very brave man, the Archbishop of Granada Fransisco Javier Martinez, who said the following about the book's content:
...the furore surrounding it is "ridiculous
and hypocritical" in a society that allows abortion, which he argues is
a much clearer example of violence against women.
I believe abortion in Spain is allowed throughout the whole pregnancy, so that they outliberalled even Holland, though I can be mistaken. I also find it quite ironic that the book was written by a woman, but apparently not being a progressive she is not entitled to free speech or the right to choose how to live her life.
