quotingquiverfull

by Beecher Proch from Girl Defined - Guy Thoughts: Come on Girl, Keep it Modest (thanks to Bruce Gerencser for posting about Beecher Good catch!)Editor's note: Lots and lots of slut-shaming/women-blaming at the original link even if the author admits that men at 100% responsible for where they put their gaze. Guessing he has no one around to yell 'Nike' for him to look at his shoes when some half-dressed temptress crosses his path. He fails to realize that no matter how much a pretty girl, or any girl, covers up there's always going to be a squad of guys sitting in the pews popping pocket rockets when they go by. It's NORMAL!!! … [Read more...]

To The Moms Who Want To Hate On Middle-School Girls

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons [this post is in response to Kristen Welch’s “To the Middle School Girls at the Pool who Told my Son He was Hot“] Listen, moms, I get it.You live in a culture where anything goes. Where the public shaming of girls is acceptable. We sacrifice their education on the altar of “not distracting boys,” and we joke about how their “Instagram feed has more duck faces than a pond.” As mean and petty as those jokes are, our culture says they’re hilarious. You live in a time when we’ve figured out another way to shame women, and this time it’s not for reading “sentimental nonsense” like Jane Austen, it’s for having a twitter handle … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sorry I’m Not Perfect For My Future Husband?

quotingquiverfull

by savabrown14 from the blog Loved By I Am - Dear (Possible) Future HusbandEditor's note: This is one of the hateful things about Fundamentalist/Evangelical Quiverfull, the 'not good enough' syndrome while being pushed to be perfect. Where's the grace in this or in being allowed to be human, warts and all. Nice slut shaming in there too over supposed immodesty by girls your future husband might encounter in day to day life. A man looking at a beautiful woman is not a sin any more than the writing have had crushes on various men or having emotions. So many things here going on at once. … [Read more...]
