Quoting Quiverfull: No Knees Seen Ever?

by Michelle Duggar from the official Duggar Family blog.

Thanks to Crushable for pointing out the original blog posting.

As a parent I would have to remind them, let’s not stand upside down on your head in that chair because you want to practice being ladylike. And they look at me with this puzzled looked like, what does that mean? I’ll explain, well, it means that you sit up, put your knees together and pull your skirt down over your knees.

    I don’t have a problem with parents teaching young children appropriate public behavior, but I DO have a problem with parents censoring children’s play in order to extract conformity.

    Same! It’s like, why is it “unladylike” or “immodest” for women to sit with their legs spread, but if a man sits so that his legs manage to take up the better part of 3 whole public transit seats, nbd, right?
