Quoting Quiverfull: Just Like That You Changed?

Quoting

by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield in Today's Christian Woman- From Lesbian Professor to Pastor's WifeEditor's note: This seems to be a common theme in Evangelical Christianity, this belief that you can just walk away from the type of sexuality you have lived in for years. Seems wrong to say it's a simple change of thoughts. What do you think dear reader? … [Read more...]

‘Gilmore Girls’ and Child Abuse

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Two of the many things I missed out on during my we-didn’t-have-TV childhood were Friends and Gilmore Girls. I’m in the process of rectifying it– thank you very much Netflix– and so far it’s been pretty fun. I really enjoy the way the characters interact with each other, especially how much Lorelai really is almost exactly like her mother … if her mother had pink-furry-telephone taste. I’m also enjoying Rachel’s sudden introduction to paying taxes. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Robbed of Their Primary Dominion?

Quoting

by Andrea Schwartz at The Kingdom Driven Family and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Power on Her Head: The Home Field AdvantageEditor's note: Bojidar Marinov is speaking about the minimizing of women's roles in the church by patriarchy along with the petty tin-plated dictatorship by men over their wives that seems to be endemic to the Christian Patriarchy Movement. Andrea's response? To try to explain management roles and job descriptions from the world being applied to the marriage relationship. Sort of like describing a pineapple and the listener drawing an apple instead. She describes a wife as a 'useful reflection' of her husband. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Woman ‘Are’ Equal As Long As They Submit?

Quoting

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Baby Oil on the Bowling BallEditor's note: Now I know this is all so word-salady, verbose, and not the easiest to parse, but if I'm reading it correctly Mr. Wilson is trying to say that there is equality between men and women as long as the wife is submissive and obedient to her husband. … [Read more...]

So, Are You a Feminist?

Image from Defeating The Dragons - Samantha Field

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons It’s become almost de riguer for red-carpet journalists (and others) to confront a female celebrity and demand to know whether or not she considers herself a feminist. This bothers me. From what I’ve seen, most of the time the publication asking doesn’t have any vested interest in their answer (see, a Time magazine writer asking Shailene this question, and then another turning right around and putting “feminist” on their “words to ban” poll). This leads me to believe that these people aren’t confronting these women because they care about feminism, or want to help overturn some of the misconceptions about feminism– they jus … [Read more...]

The Smoke and Ash of Melting Memories

smokeash

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace What are your earliest memories like?I remember some events as what seem like still photographs from when I was very young – like the yellow diaper service pail on the front porch with an embossed stork on it, though the pigment in the pattern had faded. I remember my mother sitting beside my white crib, reading different books to me. Though I could not have had a visit with him after I was three years old, I remember my orthopedist. He had jet black hair and wore a smock like doctors wore in black and white movies. I remember really liking him, but I don't remember talking to him or why I saw him. I remember my grand geek fas … [Read more...]
