About Libby Anne

Libby Anne grew up in a large evangelical homeschool family highly involved in the Christian Right. College turned her world upside down, and she is today an atheist, a feminist, and a progressive. She blogs about leaving religion, her experience with the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements, the detrimental effects of the "purity culture," the contradictions of conservative politics, and the importance of feminism.

    Of course they’re leering at her. You can see her shoes.

    In societies with extreme gender segregation like Saudia Arabia and Afghanistan, unmarried men see women unrelated to them so rarely that they’ll lust after anything. It’s why the Burka was invented, to cover even the eyes (which can indeed look very attractive when you see nothing else).

    Who do those slutty sluts think they are being all female and stuff and showing their slutty heels! Sluts! More covering is clearly needed. MORE COVERING!!!

    Duh, you can see her slutty eyes!!! Clearly, she must be wearing makeup and being a temptress.

    @lucrezaborgia Interesting answer. Not unlike legalistic Christian groups — if it was a common practice at the time the “rule” was written, it is permissible. Anything newer, even if it is the same principle, is wrong.

    The real difference between kohl and eyeliner? Kohl of usually lead-based and harmful to the wearer in the long run.

    Did anyone else think back to the shoes scene from Sex and the City 2?

    Hi Libby,

    Would you be able to add ALT text to the image, and/or a brief description of it in the body of the post? I’m blind and don’t really have any idea what this post is about and would like to.

    Would be greatly appreciated if you can.

    Thanks in advance!

      It shows two men in a motorcycle leering at two women covered in black robes completely except their eyes.
