Quote# 31671

“Received your book ‘Created to be his Help Meet’ and have let the Lord give me a grateful heart towards my ‘Steady’ man. I just told my mom the other day about this book, and that I could no longer talk negatively about my husband. After 2 days of a changed attitude, he went and bought me a brand-new vacuum cleaner, even though I was willing to take a secondhand one. I was tickled pink! I am very thankful that the Lord has given me a chance, and has put a woman like you to teach us younger women. In fact, I am so grateful, that yesterday I wept!”

... and this morning I wept! .... and this afternoon, I stared in the mirror for HOURS and wept! ... I'm. So. Grateful.

I bet you think the suffrage movement was a bad thing.

"Thank you god for helping me realise that I am nothing more than my husband's slave and concubine."

You wouldn't happen to live in Stepford, would you?

11/27/2007 9:09:30 PM


I almost that this was a repost.

I'd be happy too if I got a free vacuum. Largely because I live in a bachelor pad and like to clean up the crumbs and spilt beer after Friday night.

Yes, sometimes I'm so happy I cry and tear my hair out of joy.

The testimonials on the website read like pure Stepford Wives and would all be suitable for FSTDT. It's tragic how some women are willing to give up their equality so readily.
If I gave my wife this book she'd likely feed it to me, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
She's my partner, not my slave.

Proper title is "Created to be his doormat" but whatever.

... w.t.F...?

It's not often I feel violently inclined... Actually, no, that's not true, I frequently feel extremely violently inclined when I visit here... but some people need a good slapping to knock some sense into them.

Tickled pink to get a new vacuum cleaner? FSM preserve us... *bangs head repeatedly against desk*

I think the testimonials on this website are made up. At least, I hope they are.

Awesome! Apparently this book comes with free tranquilizers. Hook me up man!

So the secret of happiness in a marriage is lowering your expectations through the floor?

If I had to guess I'd have to say that most testimonials you see in ads like that are fabricated anyway. The ones I found the most laughable had to be the ones from the Bloussant infomercial though -- all these women claiming that Bloussant had made their boobs bigger, but not a before shot in the bunch. Or the "Lifestyle Lift" ad that's all over the place now -- once you allow for the frowning in the before shots, it's hard to tell anything happened.

The fact that there are books like this out there depresses the hell out of me. I spent a year trying to get my ex-girlfriend to be more assertive and to be more secure about herself. do you have any idea how fast your respect can diminish for a person when they are sure every conflict was there fault?

11/27/2007 10:27:11 PM

cool cats

I hate women like this.

Big Chicken Dinner

This has got to be a joke.

If it isn't, I wonder if she has a sister...

Isn't it a weird night to be hanging out at the gay bar? Shouldn't you be chilling out and waiting for the weekend circuit party or something?

11/27/2007 10:37:36 PM


Ugh why do religeous people cry soo much? WHY!?

11/27/2007 10:40:13 PM


Well, I'm glad to know that both psychological and marital validation can be bought and sold like...well...a vacuum cleaner.

11/27/2007 11:11:57 PM


Doormats for Jayzoos!

I want to know what sort of brainwashing these people are undergoing and if it's that effective, why can't they be brainwashed to be hot, sexy, CLEAN, cheap hookers?

11/28/2007 12:50:32 AM


Most husbands just buy jewelry.

11/28/2007 1:13:40 AM


"S" for Stepford Wife? Probably.

11/28/2007 1:50:18 AM


oh wow. You were psyched about getting a vacuum cleaner, a symbol of this 'help meet' wtf you're blathering about.

Brainwashing makes me sad.

11/28/2007 2:27:05 AM


Wow! Weeping because a fucktarded dimwit bought you a vacuum cleaner. I wonder what would happen if he came home with a vibrator?

11/28/2007 2:40:23 AM


Please be a Poe.

11/28/2007 3:45:28 AM


If my husband buys a vacuum cleaner, it had better be for both of us, not just for me!

11/28/2007 3:50:34 AM


Holy shit... how many battered women is this book going to get killed? Substance abuse? Meh, God says "Stick it out you ungrateful whore and just keep your trap shut."

If I had wanted to marry an unquestioning subservient I'd have married a dog.

Someone needs to bury a hefty size 10 boot in this womans ass.
