The Head of the Head of the Household

"The Head of the Head of the Household" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Description: A husband and wife are in bed reading their Bibles. She says, "This story of Deborah in the Old Testament is amazing. Basically, the Bible says I can't be head of the household but it's okay if I hammer a tent peg through the head of the head of the household." The husband holds his neck in concern.

I really don't have anything to say about this. I just thought it was funny.

Although I will say this: some of the most empowered and subversive women I've ever known have lived under oppressive patriarchal domination.
