4. Submission is a right—a husband has the right to demand his wife’s submission.

5. Submission is indiscriminate—it means mindless acquiescence.

6. Submission precludes mutuality—it creates lopsided, one-way relationships.

7. Submission promotes abuse—it encourages husbands to be domineering, self-centered boors.
