Can We Please Stop it With the ‘Feminist’ Videos Already?

Screen cap from the video "Slap Her" from Defeating The Dragons site.

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons You’ve probably seen the video that the above image is pulled from– the Facebook-viral “Slap Her.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here. I don’t really want to take the time to dissect all the reasons why this video was actually kind of horrible, but if you’re interested, these two articles covered it rather well:Dr. Rebecca Hains’ ‘Slap Her': Fanpage.it video objectifies girls, exploits boys, and trivializes domestic violence R.L. Stollar’s ‘Slap Her': The So-Called Heartwarming Video that’s Actually Disturbing … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Child Hording Taken to the Next Level?

NLQ original image

by Adeye from her blog No Greater Joy Mom - Life Changing News From the SalemsEditor's note: Adeye, mother to more than one adopted special needs child who is preparing for an embryo transfer of four frozen embryos from a batch that has resulted in profoundly special needs children has a new project - creating homes in South Africa for that country's special needs orphans. While I think starting up homes for desperately needy orphans is a noble thing, something about this smacks of child hording on a grand scale or attention-seeking behavior on the part of the author. Am I just being a big old cynical meanie or is there something odd about this? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Threats, Martyrbating and Hating the Feds

NLQ original image

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church from his blog Steven L. Anderson.Editor's note: Checking on on Anderson this morning, the same pastor Anderson that called for the death of all gay people by Christmas to rid the country of AIDS, I found three different noteworthy things to share. Decided to put them in one long Quoting Quiverfull instead of individual ones. What makes all of this so note worthy is that it speaks to the Quiverfull Fundamentalist IFB mind set of 'Us Against THE WORLD!' Some martyrbating and some anger when treated like Evangelicals like to treat gay people. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Voddie Baucham Thinks Marriage is More Important Than Education?

Quoting

by Voddie Baucham from his 'Child Training' sermon at Hardin Baptist Church bravely transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers AnonymousEditor's notes: Apparently Mr. Baucham does not consider parents behaving in a responsible way and modeling a good marriage in front of their children to be any sort of preparation for marriage. Which is sad, because no matter how much you lecture, hector or try to teach someone any concept sometimes the best way of all is to simply be an example. Where did this concept in Fundigelicalism that higher education for your child is wrong come from? … [Read more...]

Review: ‘The Zimzum of Love’: Introduction to the Series

bookreview

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Hello, again! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season. Mine was a good, long break that I definitely needed– didn’t really realize how much I needed it, although by the end of last week I was antsy to get back to work. Unfortunately, I bruised/broke my tailbone this weekend, which has made sitting down … uncomfortable. Right now I’m anticipating being able to keep to my schedule (except for this week– period week), but we’ll see how it goes. I’m not going to push myself, as how fast my tailbone heals depends almost entirely on how careful I am with it. … [Read more...]

‘Gilmore Girls’ and Child Abuse

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Two of the many things I missed out on during my we-didn’t-have-TV childhood were Friends and Gilmore Girls. I’m in the process of rectifying it– thank you very much Netflix– and so far it’s been pretty fun. I really enjoy the way the characters interact with each other, especially how much Lorelai really is almost exactly like her mother … if her mother had pink-furry-telephone taste. I’m also enjoying Rachel’s sudden introduction to paying taxes. … [Read more...]
