Quoting Quiverfull: Any Suppression of Your Fertility is Wrong?

quotingquiverfull

by Tamara Rajakariar from MercatorNet and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Do Women Need to Have Periods?Editor's note: This bit was said by a fertility 'practitioner' practicing in Australia.  Not a medical doctor. It is my understanding that with issues related to your period one of the first things that physicians tend to try to ease the problems are hormone-based birth control pills. Which is exactly the opposite of what this expert is saying you need to do. How exactly is using birth control to ease problems with your cycle causing women to be more masculine? … [Read more...]

Stop ‘Knowing’ What Anna Duggar Will Do

lanawideopenground

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundThe downside of the cute, quiet  ATI-patriarchal-quiverfull life of the Duggar family is now all over mainstream media. While it’s somewhat of a relief to see the public realize that conservative homeschooling is not as innocent as it seems, as an ATi alum myself, it’s also gets very triggering and downright weary to hear the media mock my childhood leaders as if it’s nothing but a good story for them. Likewise, seeing the Duggar kids pictures on the front page of the tabloids makes me sad. The Duggars aren’t a juicy story to devour. They are a broken, hurting family. … [Read more...]

The Language of Cults, Duggars and Quiverfull: How to Communicate With People Outside the Subculture

Langone Venn Diagram

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceHow do we define a cult in respect to the Duggars and Quiverfull?I wrote all kinds of material that never made it into Hillary McFarland's Quivering Daughters book, but I was grateful to many people who peer reviewed my contributions to it.  Along with concerns about technical accuracy, I also wanted to see how people without intimate knowledge of religion or homeschooling would respond to the material.I began to more deeply appreciate two primary lessons regarding the discussion of the issues involved with the Patriarchy/Quiverfull Movement. … [Read more...]

News: Northwest Arkansas Newspaper Suing For Copy of Duggar 911 Call

news

Back in May during the fallout over the child molestation done by Josh Duggar someone reported concerns for one of the children to the local DHS. A social worker tried to visit the home and was denied access to the child in question and the home by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Faced with no other choice in an ugly situation the social worked dialed up 911 and asked for law enforcement help in their investigation. Pretty straightforward situation, right? … [Read more...]

Father’s Day, Undeserved

JoeSands

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous Circumspection.(Editor's note: Originally posted in 2011. For the record Joe is a wonderful father and a pretty amazing guy. But this piece so clearly illustrates how Quiverfull hurts men and children too.)If I could have been around during the time of the ancient Egyptians, I might have begged them to create a 364 day year, rather than a 365.  In my view, for me anyway, Father’s Day can skip right on by, unnoticed.  I do not deserve it in the least.Before any of my readers boot up some comments that vehemently disagree with the above statement, let me explain.  By the end of this post, you will agree with my premise and run me … [Read more...]

What You Need To Know About Quiverfull And The Duggars

Vyckie

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ FounderFrom her Facebook page answering this Craigslist rant:to the people and supporters of the Quiverfull Cult (United States)You incestuous brainwashed bastards should all be taken out and beaten within an inch of your lives! The sickest part is that you get away with the shit you do because of your so called "christian" values. Personally, I believe all pedophiles should be shot or hung!

A Few Thoughts on Abortion and Planned Parenthood Videos

Three day old human embyro. Image from The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI’ve been asked to give my take on the Planned Parenthood videos.When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s mission, to provide healthcare to women, I am 100% in their corner. Providing abortions is a small part of Planned Parenthood’s services, and defunding Planned Parenthood would have a deleterious effect on the health of poor women. Attempts to defund Planned Parenthood are driven by religious belief and bad science. We live in a secular state, one that supposedly separates church and state and one that values science; yet, when it comes to abortion, the debate is framed by religious claims that result … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only Marry Women That Want Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Pastor Stephen Kim from his blog NYC Pastor - 10 Women Christian Men Should Not MarryEditor's note: We shared parts of this post back in January when it was first written. But upon rereading it this bit about women marrying must have children seems insulting and belittling. Not every married couple wants children and not everyone should have them. Not everyone should have kids and no one should ever have a child who doesn't actually want one. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Trusting God With Your Fertility?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Body Weight and FertilityEditor's note: Many have been wondering exactly where Anderson draws the line at medical care. In her blog she has routinely ranted against any medical intervention, until she was going to lose her pregnancy of twins due to TTTS. Quicker than you can say 'Vaccines are an evil government plan.' Zsu was at a high risk pregnancy doctor being treated in an effort to save one or both babies. Reading this bit it seems like she may have modified her doctors are evil stance. Add in a little advice on body weight and fertility. What do you think? Are you really trusting God with your fertility if you use medical treatments … [Read more...]
