Melissa Gorga Was ‘Taken Out Of Context’ When She Wrote Husbands Should Rape Their Wives

The Superficial / September 26, 2013

Yesterday, the Internet had a goddamn field day with Melissa Gorga’s marriage advice book Love Italian Style considering the following passage she included using Joe’s own words basically advocates marital rape. Via Jezebel:

Men, I know you think your woman isn’t the type who wants to be taken. But trust me, she is. Every girl wants to get her hair pulled once in a while. If your wife says “no,” turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated.
Women don’t realize how easy men are. Just give us what we want.

There’s also a hodge-podge of sociopathic anecdotes about making sure she fucks her husband or he’ll turn into the Italian Hulk and break the baby’s high chair before running out to bang the first putanna he sees. It’s a real pasta e fagioli. More importantly, NEVER LET MEN KNOW YOU POOP:

Girls don’t poop. Me, never have. Never will. It just doesn’t happen. Or, that’s what Joe thinks! We’ve been married for nine years, and he has never once seen or smelled my business. How have I pulled this off? I don’t do it when he’s around or awake. In an emergency, I have my ways of pooping so he won’t hear, smell, or see. It’s a challenge.

“I take the kids to a shelter whenever we have Mexican. Haha! Men.”

So now that everyone’s got a chance to copy and paste passages verbatim from the book and yell, “JESUS CHRIST,” Melissa’s claiming on Twitter that her words were taken out of context:

I’m so disgusted that a reporter has taken things completely out of context simply for shock value. #SAD
If you’ve read my book, you know that I am promoting mutual love, respect, honesty, and loyalty. #TRUTH

You let your husband write in your advice book that men should forcibly take sex from their wives without their consent which is rape. #TRUTH And then you advocated hiding your feces lest your man know you have a working digestive system and leave you for a 20-year-old with a stapled shut anus. #SAD So unless the words before and/or after that were, “This is total fiction. Call the police if your husband rapes you and/or beats you with a booster seat because you pooped,” you should probably stop talking about context and just enjoy the mountains of cash from idiots who are going to buy your book because America stopped investing in education. Or I’ll tell Joe you’re complaining again and not join the search party. Ball’s in your court.
