    Lemuel's mother taught him that a virtuous woman is hard to find.

    Does it follow that [edited], [edited] and [edited] couch potatoes are the majority of women, and is it misogyny to say so?

    Seriously? Are individuals to be praised simply because they're women?

    It seems equality was just a rung on the ladder to deification.

    I feel like I'm missing an integral part of the conversation in this thread.

    An Aaron diatribe against women. You are not missing much, if it is like the last one.

    You should hear what my mother says about unvirtuous women. Is she a misogynist?

    What about you women whose husbands were stolen? Is floozy an accurate term for the other woman, or is she merely the victim of the man's insatiable lust? Do you think her value far above rubies?

    Are you misogynists for thinking her less valuable?

    Was the mother of Lemuel right? Is a virtuous woman hard to find, or are we knee-deep in them?

    You make it to seem like the men were unwilling participants.

    No I don't. You just want wording that renders the woman innocent. Proverbs warns men about loose women "taking them" with their eyes. Are you going to find fault with that wording too? So, back to the question . . .

    So, we're calling bimbos, floozies and witchy couch potatoes "strong" now?

    What is your purpose in posting this thread Aaron? What is your purpose in using these terms for women that in our culture are slang and very derogatory? Would you use terms for men that are as derogatory? Do you not respect people and treat them as the creatures made in the very image of God that they are despite what they do?

    To draw out the hypocrisy of Feminists. Especially male Feminists.

    I'm not using those terms. I haven't called anyone names. I'm asking a hypothetical. The irony is the shock and indignation at the thought that [edited], [edited] and [edited] couch potatoes actually exist.

    They do exist. In fact they outnumber virtuous women, if my mother, and the mother of Lemuel are to be taken seriously.

    Puh-leeze. I have and do on a regular basis especially in the factory setting with regard to men. I know a lot of [edited], [edited] and . . . well . . . most of the derogatory terms for men of low character won't get past the censors.

    Number one. Respect is earned. I think murderers should be executed, because man was made in the image of God. I think rapists should be executed. (Real rapists, not those who engage in acts deemed by Feminists to be rape.)

    I think those who corrupt children should be drowned in the sea.

    And I think that because I love my fellow man.

    But we must be honest about man's condition. Jesus was honest. Jacob is a maggot. Jesus didn't die for men because there was something in them worth dying for. There isn't anything in them worth dying for—imago dei notwithstanding. He died for men because of Who He is, and He is no respecter of persons.

    Do you deserve the punishment reserved for the Devil and his angels? You say yes, but do you really believe it? Do you? If your righteousness is like filthy rags (oops, there's that rape culture so called by the Feminists), what are your sins? If your righteousness is as offensive to God's nostrils as one's soiled undergarments, what of your carrion of sins?

    But Jesus . . . (btw: I applauded the pastor during his sermon today. He got to talking about Jesus, and he got on a roll. I would estimate about two hundred in attendance. A round of applause for the things he said of my Lord. )

    (Oh. And he's black. The pastor. Not Jesus. Just sayin'.)

    Where was I? Oh yes. What of your maggot-ridden sins?

    Then why on God's green earth do you get offended at comparatively mild terms that I have not used in reference to any individual or group, unless it's the group of [edited], [edited] and [edited] couch potatoes.

    A virtuous woman is hard to find.

    That bears repeating.

    A virtuous woman is hard to find.

    Now you got your panties all in a twist over nothing, and you wonder about my interpersonal relationships. Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth. Here is something a female friend of mine said in a character reference she wrote for me when I applied for a community outreach project: [specifics replaced with generic references. (I value my privacy, and the privacy of those I serve.)]

    I have observed Aaron in a number of leadership positions. He is very passionate about his mission and gives 120% to every project. Usually people that are highly creative are not as organized but Aaron is highly creative but also extremely organized. He thinks through every task and is patient with folks that may not have a lot of education and experience! That being said Aaron, while strong in his vision, is open to the creative process and receives input from his team, Aaron's philosophy is that nothing just comes together. We as a team put it together! Aaron is a hard worker and brings excellence out of his staff.
    That's from a woman who has worked for me.

    Satisfied? I doubt it.
