by Rebekah Pearl Anast and Gabriel Anast from No Greater Joy – Safeguarding Your ChildrenEditor's note: I am curious how Rebekah defines 'perverted looking'? Was he drooling and panting or perhaps this was just someone unknown to her? How many awful likely fake ideas can we spot here?  Throwing shame at the neighbor boy? Check.

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Pornographers and Queers Want to Molest Your Children?

by Rebekah Pearl Anast and Gabriel Anast from No Greater Joy - Safeguarding Your ChildrenEditor's note: Are we even sure this 'magazine' Rebekah found was porn and not just something semi-normal like a Victoria's Secret catalog or a Hanes underwear catalog?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

by Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com - Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed TodayEditor's note: So typical that this guy makes it all about the wrong choices of everyone else instead of trying to teach his son not to stare, to take responsibility for where his eyes and thoughts roam. This type of thinking only continues to drive Rape Culture, treating women like objects to ejaculate to and men into little more than beasts unable to control their sex drives. Every woman in the world is not responsible for this kid's struggle with purity! … [Read more...]
