Welcome to Asshat of the Week, where I find an asshat and let the multiverse know that this asshat is exactly that: an asshat. This week’s asshat is none other than Jesse Lee Peterson.
Now, you might have heard about Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy and his decision to retire. Basically, his wife is about to have child number nine(!) but the child has a medical condition, therefore, he’s quitting to spend time with his family. (I honestly hope that’s the reason.)
To most, this seems more than reasonable. But then, there’s Jesse Lee:
“She has control over him. He’s a beta male. So Sean Duffy, Representative Duffy, you are a beta male! It’s ridiculous, really ridiculous, and it’s sad for the children. Nine children? You need to be home, and the man, you need to be out providing and being the light for your family.
“Men, you need to come back to your proper state of being so God can give you the right kind of woman to marry. I wouldn’t recommend you marry these educated women with these degrees; they don’t make for good wives and mothers.
“This woman is a selfish woman. She has nine kids and she’s trying to be like a man. Women, God has given you the gift of being the assistant of the man, to watch over his children, to make sure things are well at home, to be there when the kids come home, to cook, clean, provide in that way.
“There is no greater job for a woman than that. And I don’t know why these men would marry these women if they don’t have that mindset. It’s like being married to another man. It’s selfishness, it’s not love.”
Okay, so if raising children is my ‘god given gift’, can I get a toaster if I return it with the receipt before ninety days? Because I may not want that particular ‘gift’. Just saying.
Yes, Jesse Lee, this woman is totes controlling her husband. Why, I’m sure she did everything in her power to screw up that child’s DNA so it could be born with a medical condition! Of course, she did. Makes perfect sense.
Well, it would to an incel. But then again, if you have that sort of mindset, I doubt your celibacy is all that involuntary. I’m pretty sure that most of the blame rests with the incel in that case.
Whelp, looks like good old Jesse Lee gets another nomination for Asshat of the Year. If the man just keeps racking them up like this, he may just
win lose by default. So congratulations, Jesse Lee! Way to show the world how much of an asshat you are!
