Very good thread. Their ridiculous attitudes about women is one of the primary reasons I walked away from the religion. I felt like I was swimming against the tide the whole time I was there.
Yes, it is sad that the desperate women pounce on any man with a pulse. Any woman over 30 with a brain knows she has to get the hell out of there and find a decent man outside.
I can understand your annoyance. But, don't be too quick to paint every woman there with the same brush. I had an experience years ago where some visiting speaker blurted out "I don't want to get married" when I went up to him to innocently congratulate him on a very good talk. I was dumbfounded to say the least and made sure I never said boo to any visiting man there ever again. I was shocked and wondered what the hell he thought about himself since he wasn't even good looking.
You are right about them thinking married women shouldn't have jobs. Maybe this idiot mentality was okay in the 1950s, but not any more.
How do you think they viewed somebody like me: single and supporting myself?? Resentfully. That's how I was viewed by the small-minded idiots there who expected single women to have co-dependent relationships with other loser single women and/or to be doing favors for all the users. Well, I wasn't having any of this garbage.
I walked away the end of 2000.
