Quoting Quiverfull: Men Need to Help Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Appreciating Your HusbandEditor's note: This is a good example of thinking your way is the only right way. In the unquoted bit Lori starts off with a story about the television show 'Candid Camera' before awkwardly seguing into men going to war, her bad neck and lifting up that case of Costco toilet paper. Some women can pick up things just as heavy as men and it does not make them any less women. Some men cannot do that. Again, it does not affect their status as men. Ridiculous point here. … [Read more...]

The Power of the Transformed Wife – Slutty, Slutty Yoga Pants

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLucky chapter 13 today on a Friday. The title is 'How Are You Dressing?' and it's all about modesty. A pile of shaming and blaming and defrauding, oh my! Tighten up your yoga pants.Thankfully this is a very short chapter, even if it's rather disjointed and filled with shaming.The author starts off by discussing what others and other churches believe about what a Godly woman should wear. Alright, I'll give her bonus points for at least acknowledging that there are differences in what people believe is appropriate. She says that many take their advice from the Old Testament, but that is wrong too because we're no longer obligated to follow anything in the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Degrade Men’s Beastly Nature?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Feminists Are Weak WomenEditor's note: The italicized portions are quotes from an article by Dennis Prager in The National Review. Nice assuming by Lori and Prager than men cannot control their sex drives, rendering them somehow less than fully human and more like suffering a disability. According to Lori being cognizant over the sexual weaknesses of the men she encounters makes her a strong woman. No, actually that makes her an enabler of bad behavior and dis-respecter of men. That's weakness, not being able to see the real state and treat someone as human and equal, having to constantly molly-coddle them. … [Read more...]

Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets – Music

Found this on Facebook in a group discussing how much control Bill Gothard and his Institute of Basic Life Principles exerted over his followers. It's a page from one of the Wisdom Booklets that NLQ blogger Mel has yet to cover - why all Christian music that is not an old hymn is a sin. I guess Gothard doesn't realize that most of the hymns from the 1700 and 1800s were new lyrics coupled with the melodies of drinking songs and tunes played in the taverns of the time. … [Read more...]

Can Video Games Turn Us Into Misogynists?

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.ComFor most of my life I didn’t consider myself a “gamer,” mostly because I had an incredibly narrow understanding of what a gamer could be. I was usually more interested in books and film than I was in video games, so I didn’t think I was “allowed” to describe myself as a gamer. Over time I changed my mind. … [Read more...]
