Ashley Does Not Appreciate Your Crush

Ashley, forever, is finally speaking out against all the evil women out there who don’t see the big red “Property Of” stamp on her husband’s face, and dare to have a crush on him.

A female friend had e-mailed him saying that a friend of hers had a crush on him…it was just a harmless message, right? No.  It’s not harmless…That treacherous Jezebel!  I have a problem with it.  I have a serious problem with it.

Ashley then provides a list of reasons why your crush on her husband is terrible and awful and you’re a bad person who should feel bad. The list includes things like “you’re trying to lead my husband’s soul astray”, and it’s “disrespectful”. She says her husband is “strong in his faith, and never considered adultery, but I resent her trying to place temptation in his path”, as if it’s up to the women of the world to keep him free from “temptation”.

She goes on to berate you shameless hussies, asking “Were you thinking he would keep it from me, that you would have a secret friendship, that you would somehow be closer or more important to my husband than I am?”

Do I have a problem with you and your crush?  Yes.  Yes, I absolutely do.  Does it matter now if your feelings change?  If you move on to someone else?  If you say you’re no longer interested?  No.  No, it doesn’t.  Why not?  It’s simply because your morals have already been shown to be questionable and because you cannot be trusted.  Of course I trust my husband but trusting my husband does not mean that you are suddenly deserving of trust or friendship.

She concludes by claiming “forgiveness has been granted” to the “Jezebel” in question, which makes one wonder about the point of the post in the first place.

Instagram Still Being Used To Showcase Stupidity

uhwut

Looks like Jon is having a fun Sunday, if not a very smart one. Not sure documenting yourself driving around with open booze is the best way to celebrate a wedding, but hey, you do you.

Maybe Cecily can jump in and high five them for sticking it to the DUI checkpoint man.

Dodai Stewart Leaving Jezebel

Dodai Stewart, longtime staffer at Jezebel, is apparently joining the staff exodus. It seems she will be moving to Fusion.

leaving

No word yet on what Dodai’s possible position might be. Dodai has been at Jezebel so long it’s basically her identity.

Congrats to Dodai if she’s getting out before Jezebel goes any further down the crapper than it already has in the last 3 weeks.

ETA: She’s apparently going to be the “Director of Culture Coverage” at Fusion, whatever that means.

Karl’s Daughter Will Not Go To College

Karl Heitman, father of a princess, is tired of getting the “stink eye” when he tells people his daughter will not be going to college. Asking whether it is “wise to expect young women to go to a university and pursue a career”, Karl tries to explain why his girl child will not be needing higher education.

Let’s face it; feminism has so influenced American culture that it has infiltrated the Christian culture just as much in more subtle ways. The average Christian woman is not trained from the home, nor encouraged, to find a husband as an alternative to going to college and starting a career. This is sad and unbiblical.

Karl says he is not opposed to his daughter pursuing a “higher Christian (emphasis on Christian) education” as long as her motive is not “so that she can be independent of a man”. He continues by admitting it can be a grey area if a woman winds up with a husband who is unable to work; but rather than see a woman in the workforce, he suggests some kind of vague community aid to support the family.

He concludes this bizarre post by saying women are not supposed to “leave home at a young, vulnerable age, get a formal education, get a reputable job, and then have a family when she feels like it”, which apparently is his justification for encouraging his daughter to remain dependent on others for the whole of her life. I guess he expects her to bank on good fortune, and should that fail, on the charity of others. Why you would not want your daughter to be able to fend for herself if need be is a mystery to me, but ok.
