Blogger Under Fire for Sexist Post: “Women Shouldn’t Expect Their Husbands To Clean”

A recent post on Facebook page Always Learning began making the Internet rounds earlier this week after having been rage-shared over 27,000 times. Written by a woman named Lori Alexander in a spiral notebook, (all her posts are inexplicably pictures of notes) the message is basically “Don’t expect your husband to help clean house or it’ll ruin your marriage.”

The post (written so neatly!) reads:

DO YOU “EXPECT” YOUR HUSBAND TO HELP W/ HOUSEHOLD CHORES? IF YOU DO, YOU WON’T HAVE A HAPPY MARRIAGE B/C EXPECTATIONS DESTROY RELATIONSHIPS. IF HE HELPS, GREAT, AND IF NOT, DO YOUR HOUSEWORK CHEERFULLY AS UNTO THE LORD. REMEMBER, YOU DIDN’T MARRY YOUR HUSBAND TO HELP W/ THE HOUSEHOLD CHORES. YOU MARRIED HIM TO BE YOUR PROTECTOR AND PROVIDER. YOU SHOULD ALSO HAVE MARRIED HIM B/C YOU DEEPLY LOVED HIM, WANTED TO BE A GREAT HELP MEET TO HIM, AND TO MAKE HIS LIFE BETTER, NOT WORSE AND PUT MORE BURDENS UPON HIS SHOULDERS THAT HE ALREADY HAS TO CARRY IN PROVIDING FOR HIS FAMILY.MAKE HIS LIFE AS EASY AND HAPPY AS YOU CAN!
