Inconsistency from one verse to the next – Colossians 3:18-19

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord (Colossians 3:18).

This idea of wives submitting to their husbands sure garners a lot of discussion within Christianity today. And, a lot of that discussion is very heated. Outside of the faith, this idea is routinely mocked. It is considered outdated, not applicable to our enlightened and modern culture, and even misogynistic. Funny, I have never heard anyone use those same arguments for the very next verse:

Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. (Colossians 3:19).

I am still waiting for the heated debate and vitriol regarding this verse.
