Why do you say such absurdities? That verse is not talking about payment for work done! The money was not given to the man as payment for work. This is so typical of your responses. They are utterly absurd and have nothing to do with the text, and there is not one commentator on the planet who would agree with you. You just make up junk and post it as if you don't care at all about truth. It blows my mind.

See that? The WOMEN DOES ALL THE WORK while her husband sits among the other male elders who rule over the women.
And besides, your comment is also false because women do most of the hard labor raising the kids, cooking, washing clothes, maintaining the home and cleaning up after the husband while he "sits in the gates" all day with his fellow ruling class men.
And on top of all that, you implicitly admitted there is a male bias when you made up an reason for it!
