Part 2 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Sexual Orientation

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAlrighty.  Let's start with a quick refresher course from the previous post:Physical sex refers to which secondary sex characteristics a person has.  The binary nature of the system creates problems when someone has a reproductive system that is not fully female or male. Genetic sex refers to the compliment of sex chromosomes (X and Y) present in a person.  Usually, a someone with a female physical sex is XX and a male physical sex is XY - but this cannot be determined without medical testing AND is not always true. Our sexual characteristics are determined by hormonal cascades during early embryonic development.  These … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Poor Christians Being Persecuted For Intolerance?

quotingquiverfull

by R.C. Sproul Jr as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Surrendering the Culture WarEditor's note: As best as I can tell Sproul and the ladies of LAF are claiming that they are being persecuted because of gay marriage becoming accepted by many Americans. Sproul goes on to say on his site that they now have to be willing to 'love' their neighbors and martyr themselves for truth.  That's some Olympic-style martyrbating mixed with a call for hatred disguised as love there buddy. … [Read more...]

Part 1 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Gender Identity

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: While this has little to do with evangelicals or quiverfulls it does speak to the misinformation and downright lies that are taught about sexuality in the quiverfull movement and much of Christianity. Knowledge is power, so the next time a Zsuzanna Anderson type starts ranting about alternate sexuality in a hateful way you'll have the knowledge to know they don't know what the heck they are really talking about.The recent furor (in some circles) over Chris Jenner has clarified for me some of the main misconceptions about transgender identity. … [Read more...]

News: Christians Upset Over White Republican Christian Bruce Jenner Coming Out As Transgendered

news

This doesn't exactly fit in the Quoting Quiverful or News section but after some of what I've read on "Christian" sites/blogs, including several here on Patheos, it's obvious that many folks Quiverfull, Evangelical, Religious or Atheist are hotly debating gold medal Olympian Bruce Jenner's Friday night televised interview. Diane Sawyer interviewed Bruce for two hours in which he explained his gender identity journey along with snippets from the medical community and others who identify as transgendered in  a way that came across as enlightening and respectful, not at all what I expected. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ladies Against Feminism Loves Dolce & Gabbana Homophobic Parenting Views??

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...]
