Sack-of-Potatoes Doctrine ~ by Lepus

“Take your woman out of there”

 “Men, convince her to leave this place”

“As men we are to stand up for women and be leaders”

I’ve noticed that antis always go after the men, particularly trying to wound and prick them in the “masculinity” department.  You know, that department where historically women could do nothing without express permission from either her father or her husband.  Women couldn’t own property or inherit property because they were considered property by society at large.

Times have changed for the better, but it doesn’t surprise me that those that see the world through Christian Patriarchal lenses say these things to men as they enter the clinic.

It also doesn’t surprise me that it rarely. if ever, works.  As if women have no mind of their own.  As if women are sacks of potatoes that can be thrown over one’s shoulder and carried off.  As if women are so easily influenced.

An anti spoke to myself and a male escort the other day.  The male escort informed me that the anti told him he was leading me in the wrong direction. Because all women need tending and leadership, because they are submissive and sinful by their very nature (again, this is the Christian Patriarchal worldview talking).

I chuckled.  Why, I got myself out of bed and drove myself to the clinic to escort that very day.  Imagine.  A woman, making a decision for herself, and acting upon it, unlike the sack-of-potatoes that the antis think women are.

  1. Antis seem to think that men have total control of women. They like to claim that most women are being coerced into abortions and work themselves into a righteous lather over that. However, they don’t have a problem with men (or other women for that matter) coercing them into carrying a pregnancy. When I tell my husband about antis screaming things like this he laughs and says he would like to see anybody male or female try to make me go or do anything I didn’t want to do. Surely these attitudes are going the way of the dodo. I guess we can always hope……

  2. This made me get up and walk over to my husband (8 feet away on his computer) and tell him how much I love him, and how I wished more Christians could be like him and how many should aspire to be like him.

    He’s nonjudgmental, soft-spoken, kind, and goes out of his way for anybody in need, be they human or animal. He rarely says anything, but you’ll hear him clearly if there is injustice. He walks the walk. He also married me, a very vocal pagan atheist.

    He looked up and said, “You’re reading your escort blog again, aren’t you?” (I love how he called it “my” escort blog because I’m such a devoted fan of this thing, lol)

    I nodded and told him about this entry.

    He snorted and said, “What a bunch of idiots. I know my faith, and I know I’m a man. I married you because I know you could hold your own during the Zombie Apocalypse. If you needed an abortion, I’d be going along as backup protection for the pro-liars!”

    Love my man to itty bitty freakin’ bits. ❤

    • Longtail,

      Tell him “hi” from all of us. I think I would recruit you too for the Zombie Apocalypse. I’m sure you could hold your own. We could safely make it to the Winchester Pub with you and our regular readers.

      Thanks as always,
