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...]

Godly Gertrude and the Harding University Dress Code

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThis graphic perfectly illustrates the puritanical culture found in many Evangelical churches. Women are considered lust magnets, sure to attract weak, pathetic Christian men who have little control over their sexual desires. Starting with primary school age, females are taught to never, ever expose any of the sexual parts of their bodies–breasts, cleavage, bare shoulders, legs, and ass. In other words, girls and women are expected to dress similar to burka-wearing Muslims. The only difference is the head covering. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dressing ‘Modestly’ Protects You From Creeps?

by Zack Clark from Girl Defined - Smart Dudes Aren't Looking at Your BodyEditor's note: I beg to differ. I don't care if you're covered up from neck to ankle, there are always going to be some men that will look and lust over that exposed inch of ankle skin. Cover that ankle skin and some guys will be drooling over your ear lobes. Plus creepy guys are going to approach you no matter what. Better to teach about sexual consent and how to deal gracefully with pushy guys that will be trying to hit on you uninvited than to claim if you dress modestly enough you'll be protected against those types. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWithin Evangelicalism, especially on the far right of the Evangelical spectrum, women are considered subservient, second class, whoring Jezebels out to rob men and teenage boys of their virtue. Listen to enough sermons at the local Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church and you will likely conclude that seductive women are lurking in the shadows ready to expose a bit of leg and cleavage, bringing weak, helpless men to their knees and hopefully to their bed. After all, the Bible does have a story that warns of this very behavior: … [Read more...]
