Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

by Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com - Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed TodayEditor's note: So typical that this guy makes it all about the wrong choices of everyone else instead of trying to teach his son not to stare, to take responsibility for where his eyes and thoughts roam. This type of thinking only continues to drive Rape Culture, treating women like objects to ejaculate to and men into little more than beasts unable to control their sex drives. Every woman in the world is not responsible for this kid's struggle with purity! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

by Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com - Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed TodayEditor's note: Mr. Jacobson started off his essay bemoaning the 'I'll wear whatever I feel like' movement, that is obviously some sort of backlash against the slut-shaming of the purity crowd. It is prime bikini season right now, which means it's also prime Evangelical pearl-clutching and slut-shaming over clothing choices season. For once the Duggar family's idea of shouting 'Nike' so that all the boys will stare at their shoes instead of revealed female flesh feels about a million times healthier than this dad's ranting. A quick warning about his site, just going … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Idolatry and Modesty?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Making Idols Out Of IdolsEditor's note: Since it's bikini season and the quiverfull crowd is baying for the blood of any harlot not covering herself from knee to elbow many of the 'righteous' bloggers are upset. Personally I do think that many of the modesty crowd do make an idol out of being the most modest and feminine and stick out of a crowd in a way that draws much more attention to themselves. I thought the whole purpose of modest dress as described by Paul in the scriptures was as a way to blending in and not standing out. … [Read more...]

The portraits were featured on several online sites, but despite the “colorful” language of vulgarity in the commentary, this site shows more of the pictures in an easy-to-view format. Some of th look like the dads are getting ready to lead their girls off to the slaughter, or perhaps they were on … [Read more...]

What are you Doing? – Chapter 1: Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

Today we dive right into our review of Let Them Marry Vaughn Ohlman's book on young marriage 'What are you Doing?' Warning, extreme levels of snark ahead. This book is so dreadful it's impossible to do a serious analysis of the material.Also, Von has updated his website and is now claiming he has been falsely accused of advocating pedophilia and child marriage. Was he ever accused of pedophilia? Not here. It was the selling of underage girls into common law marriages that most people are upset about. The possibility that he might be encouraging sex trafficking among his followers under the guise of it being somehow 'Godly' instead of what it actually would be - a crime. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Making My Husband Sin?

by Melissa from Far Above Rubies - Two Years Later, My Heart Still AchesEditor's note: You remember this lady, don't you? Her piece on how her teenage son was tempted and tried by all the slutty sluts around him daring to wear swimsuits and shorts? She's updated her thoughts and it's more doubling down on the toxic message that women make men sin by not being 'modest' enough. Messages like these make me so angry that marching down the street naked starts to look like a good option (not really, I don't want to frighten my townfolks, but you get my drift..) … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated: Part 1 Chapter 7

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideQuotes from the book appear in blue text.Chapter 7 is titled "The Heart: Victim or Perpetrator - Getting Your Heart to Follow You".This chapter crystallizes a market-share problem that the Botkin Family hasn't quite solved yet.  The number of people who are willing and able to buy a Christian Patriarchy book is a set, limited market. To get the best returns on the investment in the book, the Botkins need to attract as many sub-divisions of the Christian Patriarchy, Quiverfull and Christian Homeschooling groups as possible.  The Botkin Sisters' first book "So Much More" was published in 2005 … [Read more...]
