False Dichotomies: “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists”

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons So, Robert Knight, an extremely conservative writer for Townhall and whose articles occasionally appear in publications like the Washington Times, wrote an article last Tuesday called “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists.” Since the article spends most of its time talking about grown women, I have to admit to some mild annoyance to the persistent infantilization of women in conservative circles. College-aged females are women, thank you. … [Read more...]

The Week the Cracker Quacked: The Duck Dynasty Saga

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardMillions of Evangelical Christians are in an uproar over A&E suspending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson over his homophobic, racist remarks made in a recent GQ magazine interview.  Facebook, Twitter, and the Sunday pulpit have been awash in defenses of Phil Robertson’s right to publicly state what he believes about homosexuality and the Jim Crow days of the South.  I thought I would use this post to summarize the various articles, news reports, and blog posts about Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty: … [Read more...]

True Love Doesn’t Wait

by Rosie Franklin cross posted from her blog Disrupting Dinner PartiesTrigger warning- Christian virginity/purity culture throughout (which is absolutely not sarcasm as a trigger warning). __________________Also, I told you not to read this, Mom._______________ I talked a bit Tuesday about how I lost my virginity, in my post on rape culture. I sort of mentioned but didn’t go into detail about the fact that the loss of my virginity was somewhat emotionally unmooring for me, in addition to the manner in which I “lost” it being awful. So today I’m going to talk about what I was taught about sex and virginity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women All Want Strings Attached?

by Ross Douthat posted at Ladies Against Feminism and The National Review - Feminist Pioneers Out to Destroy Your Daughters [R]ecent generations of women have been ill served by feminism’s embrace of the sexual revolution. Feminists posited that women and men were identical in their sexuality, and that only an absurd double standard had required men to treat women respectfully. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Apostates Lack Love?

by Kevin Swanson at Generations With Vision - Troll Spews, Silly Women and Sons of Belial on the Internet Too many of these folks love the world of lust and flesh and they hate their brothers (or don’t love them very much, anyway).  Technically, it’s supposed to be the other way around. The Bible wants us loving our brothers, hating the world of lust and flesh, and hating the lust and flesh stuff that corrupts the brother.  It’s the third part of this that’s the hardest to track down. And yes, you can get too picky with your brother.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: “Quiet Bombs”?

by Tim Price of Chalcedon Presbyterian Church posted at Ladies Against Feminism - The Door of Darkness When boys enter into puberty, they discover a door within themselves that has a sign saying, “DO NOT ENTER!” It is the door of sexual exploration and it has been presented to them by their new-found hormones. It is his responsibility to keep that door closed and to even guard it against any outside attempt — , i.e. seduction and temptation, — at prying it open. This is his first “rite of passage” into manhood, the first battle which begins with his own flesh. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sexiness, Motherhood & Extinction?

by Matt Walsh from his blog and reposted by Ladies Against Feminism - You don't have to erase every trace of childbirth from your body I don’t know why we’ve come up with this idea that women need to eradicate any hint of motherhood from their bodies after giving birth.This is all part of the anti-child, anti-mother, anti-family, anti-life, anti-fertility obsession that plagues our culture like an infectious spiritual disease. The ancient pagans worshiped fertility, the modern pagans (of which there are millions in this nation) worship … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How to Attract a Righteous Guy’s Attention?

by The Author (guest post) at Integrity of the Home: Quirks of the Fairer Sex Which Ought Not be So I could be wrong, but I think an idea prevalent in so-called "reformed" circles among you young ladies is this: guys don't notice you all, so you have to look "cute" or act a certain way to get attention. Maybe you'll be at church, or perhaps a nice conference, but you'll stand there and observe (out of the corner of your eye, of course) all us guys bumble around like blind fellows, consumed with our football or movies, never noticing you in all your reformed, youthful splendor. … [Read more...]

Religious Counsel

by Anais Chartschenko cross posted from her blog The Monsterium(Please welcome Anais to NLQ and to the SASBN! We're glad she's here!)My rapist had listened to me. I had warned him I was thinking of telling on him. I was getting tired of being his rag doll. He explained very gently that no one would believe me, or if they did they would tell me it was my fault. He decided to demonstrate this. He was very sensitive this way. … [Read more...]

Spiritual Abuse and Whitewashed Marriage

by Mere Dreamer cross posted from her blog Love is Not Equal to Love(Editor’s note: Please welcome Mere Dreamer to NLQ and the SASBN! Another great addition to our group!)I grew up in a 3rd world mission where the horror stories of Northern news overshadowed all other impressions of the US, though I determined to move there after graduation in spite of the fear. My 17 year old, culture-shocked self feared the six block walk from the school to work, morbidly certain it was inevitable that I would be kidnapped and raped. … [Read more...]
