Submissive No More

impatiens (2)

by AJ cross posted from her blog I am PhoenixI have had this huge epiphany in the last couple of weeks. My discovery:-It is OK to express anger in healthy ways, even if this means yelling.-Forced female to male submission is abusive. When a man yells at a woman and doesn't "allow" her to defend herself or yell back, that is abuse.I am realizing for the first time in my life that my lifelong habit of never raising my voice in anger, even when someone is screaming at me and being abusive...possibly isn't as healthy as I thought it was.It was my mother flipping out on me over the phone and email this past month that triggered this epiphany. … [Read more...]

cryingman

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 194—195This intro matter confuses me a bit.The Skinny Swine Lack of Judgement “Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands” (Proverbs 14:1).  “A wise woman doesn’t attempt to instruct her husband through feigned questions. Her questions will be sincere inquiries concerning his will.”  The skinny woman who inspired this next list of questions doubtless saw herself as a kind person, wonderful mother, and first-rate wife, yet she was tearing down her house one question at a time.I do not get the swine bit, or the skinny bit. Debi is about to la … [Read more...]

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground(Editor's note: Kevin Swanson is still promoting this book at least two or three times per broadcast nearly a year after publication.

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The King Part 2

Henry The VIII's queen Anne Boleyn discovered the hard way what happens when you disappoint the King.

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideNow, Debi normalizes abusive relationships. "These types are known for expecting their wives to wait on them hand and foot.  A Kingly Man does not want his wife involved with any project that prevents her from serving him.  If you are blessed to win the favor of a strong, forceful, bossy man, then it is very important for you to learn how to serve with joy."What kind of sick blessing is that?   Waiting hand and foot on a tyrant isn't a blessing; it's a curse. "Kingly Men are not as intimate or vulnerable as other men in sharing their personal feelings with their wives.  They seem sufficient unto themselves.  It can leave a sen … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Gynos are all Perverts?

pervert

by Steve L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church on the blog Ramblings of Sheldon and his own church websiteI have to wonder if he has revised his view of male doctors and male gynecologists after his and his wife Zsuzsanna's recent experiences with male doctors during their medical crisis with Twin To Twin Transfusion Syndrome? His wife was treated by male doctors who also practice gynecology. Does that make his wife's doctors perverts? Do they know he considers them perverts but treated his wife anyway? Very confusing. … [Read more...]

Premarital Sex and Marital Problems

premarital-sex

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismI’ve written a lot about my parents decision to have us children court rather than date. From time to time I’ve seen readers express confusion as to why parents would reject for their children a process that worked for them. The truth is that my parents turned to courtship for my siblings and I because they believed that dating hadn’tworked for them.I recently mentioned that I was conceived before my parents married. In other words, when my parents taught my siblings and I abstinence before marriage, they were teaching us something they had not themselves practiced. Reader Angela saw this as hypocritical: … [Read more...]
