Patrice Lewis: Making men head of household is true women's liberation

In a March 31, 2014 column for WorldNetDaily, Patrice Lewis insists that if feminists truly wanted to liberate women, they would make their husbands head of the household so they can be free from making tough decisions.

It's the American Taliban's usual backwards rhetoric with just some minimal reformatting to make it aplicable to women instead of religion:

As much as feminists want to deny reality, the fact remains that men and women are biologically different. (Scandalous, I know.) I like to think that God in His divine wisdom came up with the spiffy concept of a division of labor for the sake of efficiency. Divisions of labor are utilized the world over in the workplace to increase efficiency. Why not try it at home as well?

Feminists call this oppression. Homemakers call it freeing.

Why is it oppressive or subservient to look to one's husband for guidance and strength, rather than to feminists? Why can't it be a freeing thing for a woman to lean on her husband? Unless she's unmarried, it's comforting when a woman doesn't have to "do it all."

What Lewis clearly hopes to do is to confuse liberty with simplicity.

If her idea of liberation truly is to have as many decisions made for you as possible, the most "liberating" experience Lewis could possibly ask for would be to go to prison.
