quotingquiverfull

by Catholic News Agency on a recent article in Italian magazine Panorama  interviewing designers Dolce & Gabbana as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Homosexual Designers Back Traditional MarriageEditor's note: Part one of LAF using the words of Dolce & Gabbana to try and further their 'No Gay Parents' and 'No Gay Marriage' agenda. I guess we fear that which we do not understand. Nice shaming/blaming of D & G by the ladies of LAF. Second part of this tomorrow morning dealing with who exactly should be, in their opinion, using reproductive technologies. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Hates R Rated Movies?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Why Watching People Make Out Should Be AwkwardEditor's note: One thing you can count on from the Quiverfull/CPM/Fundamentalist movement is that they will keep moving the bar, changing the rules, until everything except reading your Bible and praying is 'sinful' This piece basically says if you are not uncomfortable watching a movie scene of people deeply kissing, much less having sex, then there is something 'wrong' with you in your spiritual life. Yeah, keep moving that line and telling yourself you are hole-y, err, holy. It really is all about sex in that world. Seems like the author is coming very close to calling passionate kissing pornography. … [Read more...]

Kink 101 For Purity Culture Survivors

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons [note: links may include NSFW material] There are many amazing resources out there for people who think they might be kinky or into BDSM, and I’ll link to some at the bottom of this post. However, if you’re anything like me … a lot of what’s out there seems conflicting and confusing, and because I grew up on the rather strict end of purity culture I didn’t have the tools to start sorting any of it out. I didn’t know anything about sex, and many of us don’t. Someone I met in college thought that semen was green because of a joke they’d heard about grass stains, and I thought that “going through the back door” meant doggy. An … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Grey Isn’t a ‘Real Man’?

quotingquiverfull

by Tamara Rajakariar from Mercantor Net and as quoted and reposted by Ladies Against Feminism - A real man vs Mr GreyEditor's note: The ladies at LAF are still rattling on about the evils of the film 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and ignoring the Christian film response to the movie 'Old Fashioned' This isn't the only new link they've posted against 'Fifty Shades' since a few days ago. Why is this film so threatening to them beside the fact that there is absolutely no mentions of faith in it? It has a merciless dominating male in it, just like in the Christian Patriarchy Movement they all follow, who forces a woman to submit in every way to him. You'd think they might find the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ladies Against Feminism Losing It Over ’50 Shades of Grey’

quotingquiverfull

from Ladies Against Feminism and the seven quoted articles they tagged about sex, perversion and the movie '50 Shades of Grey'. Editor's note: Wow, seven articles about sexuality, pornography and what LAF considers perversion in just a couple of days? Sounds like someone has some sexuality issues they're working out. They don't even put up this many articles at once about abortion near Right To Life Sunday. For years at NLQ we've theorized that large parts of the patriarchy is obsessed with sex, as much sex as they can get, like the Pearl's honeymoon tale or Vaughn Ohlman's insistence you get married young to keep from committing sexual sin, but we've never examined the female psyche in … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Government Is Pushing Transgender On Teens?

quotingquiverfull

by Rev. James David Manning from Atlah World Missionary Church as quoted by Raw Story - NY Pastor "Justin Bieber is trans and 'cut off his breasts' because Obama's 'evil spirits' mislead himEditor's note: This pastor keeps popping up on national media in his competition with Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church for the strangest fundamentalist Christian conspiracy theories. Here he blames transgenderism on the president. While this isn't really a QF issue necessarily it does neatly dovetail with those in the Quiverfull movement that are trying to demonize transgendered people, like Michelle Duggar and others more mainstream. This conspiracy theory is a little extra crazy … [Read more...]

Part 1 – Is It Possible To Be A Sex-Positive Christian?

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you’ve spent any time in feminist circles, you’ve probably bumped into the termsex-positive. It gets thrown around a bit, and one thing I’ve noticed is that it can occasionally be difficult to nail down what the writer/speaker means when they use it, so I’m going to offer a definition for what I mean when I use it. … [Read more...]

Rather Dead Than Queer

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To LiveI’m so cripplingly lonely. I have parents that think I shouldn’t be allowed to go out with friends more than once every couple months because they don’t want me to make friends that accept my gender. I never get any social interaction, I just sit in my room and listen to indie music and browse tumblr all day. My social anxiety is at an all time high and my stuttering is worse than it’s ever been. -Quote from Leelah’s TumblrI remember trying to figure out a way to explain. A way to describe how the rejection feels. Every statement about “god’s plan”, and “god’s design”, pounding it further and further into your head, that god does … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 177-206 “Can We___?”

50s-in-love-couple

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I knew before I sat down to read today’s chapter that it had been the one that people found controversial, but I wasn’t familiar with why it had upset some—and I have to admit that even after reading it I still wasn’t sure why it had apparently caused a hubbub. To me, it seemed as though Mark was toeing the conservative evangelical line pretty well. I mean, he was clearly “being Mark,” but he didn’t say anything that I wouldn’t have expected from a lot of other evangelical leaders. … [Read more...]
