Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Emotions Make Women Lazy?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - 7 Steps to Dealing With a Lazy WifeEditor's note: I know, I know... Larry's words are toxic and vomit-inducing but there's just so much so wrong that I'm quoting more than I usually would with Larry.  Notice too that his words in this piece dovetail with the thought and words of Michael Pearl in Aletha's latest review of 'Created To Need A Help Meet' … [Read more...]

Five Things Home School Moms Should Know About Abusive Marriages

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch the Shepherd When our family started the homeschooling journey about 25 years ago, I envisioned my comrades in the movement as the ideal examples of healthy marriage and parenting. I have learned much along the way about educating and nurturing my own ten children, and I am seeing this legacy continue with my six grandchildren. However, as the years have gone by, I have had to lay aside my cute little rose-colored glasses and acknowledge that there can also be a dark side. Abuse, whether it is against a child or a spouse, is a tragic reality in far too many homeschooling families. Because I write frequently on the topics of domestic … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Emotions Make Women Lazy?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - 7 Steps to Deal With a Lazy WifeEditor's note: Larry has some typical slurs against women, like how with labor-saving devices women have it so much easier than in the old pre-electricity days. Plus in his eyes not only does a man have a right to discipline his wife for not doing what he wants, he has a responsibility. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Emotions Make Women Lazy?

 by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - 7 Steps to Dealing With a Lazy WifeEditor's note: Hoo boy, this is one of the worst things I've seen in a long time. Someone sends Larry an email complaining that their wife is a lazy rarely-cooking slob and had decided to do something about it after reading through the 'manosphere'. He doesn't say how many children they have or if his wife is in good health or address any of the long list of things that could impact her ability to keep house and cook. Larry responds with the usual tripe. … [Read more...]

Psychological Socialism – Manipulating by Equalizing Blame

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch the ShepherdWhat is “psychological socialism”?  I’m so glad you asked!  It’s a term I coined a few years ago as rough concept after reading a friend's Facebook status (more on that later). Since then, I’ve done a lot of research on abusive and unhealthy interpersonal dynamics.  What I’ve read about and heard from others is enough to make my hair stand on end, but it gave me a lot of material to finally write this article! … [Read more...]

And by everyone's, I mean Michael's. Here we go!Text is in purple … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Home is For Jesus?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Reigns in Your Home?Editor's note: Another example of how rote, uninspired and repetitive Nancy can be. Is Jesus in your home? Is he, is he? Did you check under the bed? The level of fear, guilt and control Nancy inspires in her followers is insane, or maybe it just makes you insane trying to meet her million rules of motherhood. She takes a swipe at sports in this bit too. … [Read more...]

Vulnerability and Safety in Stage One Recovery

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceAll images by Cindy Kunsman from Under Much Grace and used with permission One might think that the first stage of healing from trauma involves recounting tragic circumstances, but it is actually about creating a safe place with safe people who can help you heal. In the previous post, I described a situation that I had with a counselor who I don't believe understood trauma very well and didn't use an approach that was helpful for me. … [Read more...]
