  •  After watching one of my own sisters, (7+ / 0-)

    I think I understand more than I did previously how it is that women buy into this crap.  It's (IMHO) a combination of being under the control of their husbands and at the same time being both insecure in the value of their own ideas/opinions while at the same time trying to keep peace in the family by not going against a selfish, autocratic, controlling husband.  It's really a sick, sick phenomenon to watch play out on a daily basis and it's definitely not a healthy relationship.  My sister is so screwed up due to trying for years to reconcile within herself to becoming a witless automaton and giving up her own autonomy and independence of thought.  But at the root of it all is utter and absolute control by an insecure, ignorant, loud-mouth husband.
