UPDATED: Apparently, the article that caused me to breathe fire and vomit pea soup was from 2006. Which does not absolve him because as far as I know there has been no Universal Clemency From Douche-Baggery 2006 Edition granted. However, I will give him some credit for trying to explain himself and being willing to explain himself again four years later when another round of moms lines up to lambaste him. I wish I could give him credit for writing a thoughtful apology that evidences careful consideration of his positions and/or how he portrayed them but I don’t think he did. I think he got defensive and explained his reasoning by accusing his readers of stupidity. You can draw your own conclusions. I’ve drawn mine and they end with “Not reading anything more form that guy, thanks!”.
OK, I do not really know anything about this Rabbi Schmuley person but I just read this article and I am looking for his ass so I can plant my foot squarely on it.
I am trembling with anger because this man, this non-birth giving creature had the unmitigated GALL to talk about a “mere birth canal” (emphasis mine). Mere? MERE? The gateway of life is MERE? So, Rabbi, I assume you will not be offended when I start referring to your penis as a MERE sperm dispenser? A mere turkey baster substitute? A mere alternative to a fucking vibrator, which I would happily spend the rest of my life using rather than sleep with a man who only respects my body if I dedicate it entirely to his pleasure and not to the myriad other amazing functions for which it was created?????
Hey Rabbi! Shut. The. Fuck. Up.
That is all.
My SMIL once told me she was amazed that we got a child from my husband’s “little squirt”.
Even that, directed at his part of things, pissed me off. You cannot par down the miracle of life like that.
I”m pretending that the article is from The Onion. LALALALALALA It’s NOT real!
Not only did that article absolutely infuriate me, but it is totally untrue. Our sex life is actually BETTER post-baby, and it was lacking nothing before. My husband is unbelievably supportive of my choice to breastfeed, and it has had no effect on his attraction to my body or my breasts. Now, I had a C-section, so my piddly little birth canal remained a glorious pristine sexual vagina, so at least I can keep my man happy with it. Because that’s all it’s good for, right?
Yeah. I was in an all. out. rage last night when I read this POS.
I am so PISSED. What a tool.
way to go! you set him straight!
“if it means that a husband and wife never go out on dates, or that the mother is so tired from always waking up with the baby that she has no energy to ever be intimate with her husband”
really? because the ONLY reason a mom gets up in the middle of the night is to BREAST feed. because bottle fed babies don’t wake up. and by the way, rabbi,
“preoccupied as you are with a sinful relationship that diverts your attention away from your spouse”
so you’re saying feeding and nurturing my child is a sinful relationship? i’m pretty sure when God made my tits lactate, he didn’t think my HUSBAND would be the one eating from them……
what a wad. usually i like what he says, but this is RIDICULOUS.
Unbelieveable…I cannot believe this is the first I have heard of this utter trash spoken by a man who should certainly know better.
Now that he’s posted his retraction he actually pissed me off worse by calling someone stupid who suggested he equated breast feeding to adultery. He very definitely did say that or something very similar. Moron. I railed about this for an hour last night while my husband was like WTF?
Where does one even begin to dissect this level of bullshit? I called him out on my blog today. I couldn’t even wait for tomorrow.
