Quoting Quiverfull: Using the Phrase ‘Because Vagina’ is Demeaning to Gender Differences?

by Vaughn Olhman of Let Them Marry - Because Ummm..what?Editor's note: Funny, after having been around liberals for years I do not recall the phrase 'Because Vagina' being bandied about regularly. I do hear 'Because Penis' a whole lot to man-splain male privilege. Is it really rude or demeaning to use scientific names for body parts? I would think that silly made-up goofy names are much more offensive in the general public. Your thoughts on this? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dressing ‘Modestly’ Protects You From Creeps?

by Zack Clark from Girl Defined - Smart Dudes Aren't Looking at Your BodyEditor's note: I beg to differ. I don't care if you're covered up from neck to ankle, there are always going to be some men that will look and lust over that exposed inch of ankle skin. Cover that ankle skin and some guys will be drooling over your ear lobes. Plus creepy guys are going to approach you no matter what. Better to teach about sexual consent and how to deal gracefully with pushy guys that will be trying to hit on you uninvited than to claim if you dress modestly enough you'll be protected against those types. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bill Gothard Cannot Be A Sexual Molester Because He Preaches A Hard Word?

by unnamed Bill Gothard supporter at Discovering Grace.Com - Did He Do It?Editor's note: This site was supposedly put together by supporters of Bill Gothard but has most of the same content that Bill Gothard's ministry site has, word for word. ICANN registry used to show it was registered to Gothard, but now the registry information is private. So what are Bill and his 'supporters' trying to do on this site and in this quote? They are trying to claim that none of the sexual abuse he's being sued for happened. There are over 60 accusers. Think about that for a moment, 60, not 1 or 2. All young women who worked under him at ATI/IBLP. Ridiculous reason for claiming he didn't do what he's … [Read more...]
