What happens when you combine modern technology with antiquated thinking?

One blogger with some old-fashioned ideas about motherhood decided to find out.


Lori Alexander, a self-proclaimed minister and Christian blogger seems to long for "a simpler time." Like when women were property and not allowed to own property of their own or have a line of credit.


Ah, the good old days.

On her blog The Transformed Wife Lori espouses the advantages of stay-at-home motherhood and devotion to your husband in posts that read like a chapter of The Handmaid's Tale.


Lori really kicked the hornet's nest with a recent post though when she created a flow chart titled "Should Mothers Have Careers".


Straight from The Stepford Wives Training Manual, Lori's thoughts on the matter were about what you would expect.

Working mom's neglect their families while stay at home moms are so attentive that their husbands and children will eventually start praising their name while levitating in mid air. Pretty standard really.

A few people disagreed however, but were more than willing to educate Lori on some of the changes to motherhood that have occurred since the Louisiana Purchase.


The first lesson was "if you're dumb enough to think this you probably shouldn't tell anyone."







Then people reminded Lori that working moms have been crushing it for quite a while.








And whether a mom wants to work or stay at home the important part is that these days moms can decide for themselves.





But people's reactions didn't seem to have any affect on Lori who defended her views in a follow up post.




There may be no changing the minds of people like Lori, but thankfully there aren't that many left.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
