A new organisation is stirring up controversy in Malaysia.
[The Obedient Wives Club] launched on Saturday, says it can cure social ills such as prostitution and divorce by teaching women to be submissive and keep their men happy in the bedroom. "Islam compels us to be obedient to our husband. Whatever he says, I must follow. It is a sin if I don't obey and make him happy," said Ummu.
Just wondering, but is female submission the only thing that makes men happy and keeps societies afloat? You hear this argument again and again all over the world, and the saddest thing is when you hear it coming from women.

Perhaps you could explain to me how "And of course, anything men do is their wife's fault." was meant in some way other than to suggest that men blame women for their own actions? You seem to think your reading comprehension is superior to mine, so enlighten me.
And by the way, my reading comprehension test scores on my SAT, ACT, and GMAT were in the top 5%. Your insult is rather silly.
Obviously sarcasm and irony are lost on you, therefor it would perhaps be best not to jump to conclusions and then follow up by demanding an explanation. Maybe, just maybe you are missing something that other people do get.
Obviously you are unable to answer my question.
Now, you need to step back a pace and consider why....
Uhm...how much was there to read?
Indeed, had the post been longer and indicated that she was referring only to Muslim men, maybe it would not have been so offensive. But she didn't, because she wasn't.
So, YOU read it again. But read it critically. And try reversing the genders involved.
It was pretty obvious I'm talking about the mentality of the people who started the Obedient Wives' Club and think it is women's faults that men cheat. It's also common in Islamic societies for women to be punished for "inciting" rape.
You know what Bruce? You're a little on the hysterical/histrionic side.

Impressive how he pulled that off without having the necessary biological bits for it, huh?
You SAID "And of course, anything men do is their wife's fault."
That is another blanket statement about men.
If someone posted a story about prostitution and I responded with a comment like "Women are such whores.", would you grant me that I was speaking only of prostitutes?
I guess I am partly at fault for assuming you put any thought whatsoever into what you write. I'd expected a higher level of discourse and greater consideration on an Atheists Forum, but truly most of you are not fundamentally different from religious zealots. You are equally intolerant, equally irrational, and equally unable to consider someone else's viewpoint.
