What Men Imagined The Women's Suffrage Movement Would Be Like (42 Pics)

Women's suffrage, the legal right of women to vote. Women's suffrage first began in 1848, when a women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York. 

And from the moment the word spread, the men dramatically feared the worst... stepping into their wives shoes. 

Must have been so awful being a housewife. Considering all the men who created these illustrations displaying their worst nightmare, becoming the housewife themselves. Oh, the absolute horror.

Twitter User Brings Vintage Christmas Stamps Back Into The Limelight

Thank you Twitter user, @RabbitThoughts, for bringing these...interesting stamps back into the limelight. 

We're really torn on how we feel about these vintage Christmas stamps from the 1800s.

On one hand, they're super strange and just the weirdest...

But on the other hand, they're amazing and hilarious and we have this urge to go out into the world and collect these stamps. 

One thing we do know for sure, we're in love with that one abominable snowman/ Snow-covered Cousin It, from the Addams Family.

How do you feel about them?

Housewife Article From 1955 Titled 'The Good Wife’s Guide' Is Embarrassing

"The Good Wife's Guide" was originally published May 13th, 1955, in a magazine called, "Housekeeping Monthly." 

As the title of the article suggests, these 18 bullet points is the guideline on how to be a "good wife." From nonstop house chores to pampering your husband and never ever questioning anything he says and does. 

Really?

This article reminds us of another hilarious article from 1958 on how to find a husband.

Thank goodness times have changed because these 18 bullet points sound unbearable.
