Illustrating the misinterpretation of Ephesians 5:21 as "mutual submission"

"...subordinating yourselves to one another in fear of Christ: wives, to your own husbands as to the Lord..." (Ephesians 5:21-22, Greek)


(From this site, which has some absolutely hysterical cartoons)

I'm literally just finishing writing teaching notes for a lesson on Eph 5:22ff. I may have to see if I can work this in somehow...

This is really good. As a Christian and beforehand, the guys I would date would always "let" me make all the decisions thinking they were being considerate or what-have-you. It only made me want to scream:
Take off your skirt, be a man, and make a decision!

...but if I may tag-team for the other factor in the equation, once he makes the decision, don't start explaining how it was the wrong decision.
