Kirk Cameron, beloved TV star from our childhood and devout, evangelical Christian, has an important message to share with us womenfolk this holiday season: Stay in the kitchen where you belong. After all, ladies, it’s our job to make sure the house looks nice and to prepare glorious feasts to set at our men’s feet in a gesture of devotion and humility. What are you waiting for? Get in there and start cooking!
I’ll paste this delightful nugget of ignorance and fuckery below, but in case you’re at work and can’t watch it (or you just don’t want to look at his stupid face), here’s what he’s said:
“If you are a mom, if you are a wife, if you’re the keeper of your home, I want you to know that your joy is so important this Christmas. Because Christmas is about joy and if the joy of the Lord is your strength, remember, the joy of the mom is her children’s strength, so don’t let anything steal your joy.”
“If you let your joy get stolen, it will sap your strength. Let your children, your family, see your joy in the way that you decorate your home this Christmas, in the food that you cook, the songs you sing, the stories you tell, and the traditions that you keep. Invite your whole neighborhood into your Christmas, and invite the world into our story of our king and his kingdom.”
You know what steals my joy? Kirk Cameron. This guy needs to fuck off.
