Orthodox husband opposes idea that wives are property

Brooklyn Wolf, a married Orthodox Jew, protesting an Orthodox rabbi's assertion that wives are the property of their husbands, presents, as proof that wives aren't property, the fact that, if one can't sell something, one doesn't own it.

I'm not sure I get the point. Do you disagree with me? Agree? Find it somehow ironic or hypocritical?

Please... help me out here.

Youchers, was my post really that unclear? *I AGREE WITH YOU!!!*

Let me fiddle with the wording a bit to try to clarify. Sorry for the confusion.

Okay, what was that original title? I've forgotten it already! I think it was "Orthodox husband says: Wives aren't property." Sorry--Sometimes I go a bit overboard in trying to make my titles short enough to be visible in their entirety on my sidebar. I miss the good old days before Google acquired Blogger, when even my longest-winded titles were visible from beginning to end in the sidebar.

New title: "Orthodox husband opposes idea that wives are property." I hope that's a bit more clear. Thanks for your post. It was a good antidote to some of the extremes.
