In this section, Debi explains sex and men's need for it---and women's "duty" to provide it---and it's not pretty. God made … [Read more...]

About That Viral Modesty Video, “Virtue”


As I watched the opening of this viral video, "Virtue," I was excited.Why was I excited? Well, the opening lines go like this: Dressing modest. We know it's rough. When the world's making it so tough. It was all guys! Finally, an equal opportunity video with guys singing about their personal challenges adhering to proper modest standards! Yes, I'm against modesty standards being applied to guys just as I'm against them being applied to girls, but I'm still excited when I actually see … [Read more...]

The Homosexual Deathstyle; or, A Fixation on Gay Sex

title page

A couple years back, I watched a documentary called For the Bible Tells Me So, which looks at five Christian families with gay or lesbian children. Something one of the mothers said really struck me. She said that after her daughter first came out, and introduced her girlfriend, all she could think about was her daughter and her girlfriend having sex, and how disgusting that was. She said that over time, she was able to make a sort of peace with her daughter because she began to see more than … [Read more...]

I Was Ugly (and I Knew It): Evangelical Beauty Standards


I was ugly, and I knew it. I was chubby, I had dark hair growing on my upper lip and between my eyebrows, and my breasts were too big. I was only fifteen years old, but already I knew that I did not look pretty and feminine like Good Christian Women are supposed to look. I was told that outward appearances did not matter, that it was what was inside that mattered, but then the women who gave testimonials at church or were otherwise held up as examples of Good Christian Women all exuded a sort of … [Read more...]

Thank God I’m Not an Asshole


The title of this post---"thank God I'm not an asshole"---was the first thing that came to my mind upon seeing this image:Ken Ham believes that atheists will face eternal torture after they die. When I read his words---"thank God you're wrong"---what I hear is "thank God you're destined for eternal torture! Haha, SUCKER!"Here is how Ken Ham explained the new billboards: We decided on this billboard campaign that will last a month, with a cordial and engaging message: “To All Our A … [Read more...]

Be Still My Heart: Crushes and Guy-Girl Friendships


By some quirk, the families we spent the most time with all had girls my age, and no boys my age whatsoever. I don't know why this was the case, because it wasn't like my mom was intentionally avoiding befriending people who had sons my age. Yes, there were a few families with boys my age in our homeschool community, and occasionally we were in the same co-ops with them. But in my family, it was difficult to form friendships with kids if their parents weren't friends of my parents, so I never … [Read more...]
