Really? So you have given birth to a child and remained in total submission to your husband? Especially without technology? Consider that, during the ages in which the Bible was practiced in a literal fashion, that women had to give birth to about ten children in order for two or three to survive.

This eliminates a sexist element how?

How exactly can you assert that there is a poetic element to this verse?

Hm? Okay? This does not eliminate a sexist element. It is the same as saying, "You can't wear this because it would make you ugly, but we can." Who are you to tell a woman what to wear?

Why does it not address men yelling across the room? Yet again, this does not remove any sexist element whatsoever.

How does this remove a sexist element?

It is funny how you can worship the Bible, claiming it condemns homosexual acts and that it is moral to follow the Ten Commandments, but you do not stone your disobedient children, rape your enemies, and maintain slaves.
