Rep. Steve Pearce

While the Republican party meets at a private policy retreat to recommit to being sufficiently anti-abortion, Representative Steve Pearce (R-NM) is educating women on how they should react to their husbands.

“The wife is to voluntarily submit, just as the husband is to lovingly lead and sacrifice,” he writes, citing the Bible. “The husband’s part is to show up during the times of deep stress, take the leadership role and be accountable for the outcome, blaming no one else.” [...]

“The wife’s submission is not a matter of superior versus inferior; rather, it is self-imposed as a matter of obedience to the Lord and of love for her husband,” he writes.

This isn’t necessarily an isolated point of view in the Republican party.

GOP congressional candidate Richard H. Black believes spousal rape shouldn’t be a crime because “they’re living together, sleeping in the same bed, she’s in a nightie, and so forth.” He too believe wives should voluntarily submit.

If you feel the need to vomit now I would understand.
