Quoting Quiverfull: So God Invented Clothing?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - The Bikini is Destroying the Christian Girl's View of ModestyEditor's note: First, it's been considered 'normal' to swim nude by most Europeans for a lot longer than the advent of the bikini. Europeans are much less sexualized or hung up on the idea of unclothed body parts. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but weren't Adam and Eve nude in the Garden of Eden until they ate from the tree of knowledge, which made them feel shame over their nakedness, leading to them donning leaves? God seemed totally cool with the two of them hanging out in their birthday suits in the garden. Their own shame led to the clothing, not God suddenly opening up a ancient Brooks … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sports Uniforms Are Not Modest?

quotingquiverfull

by Bethany Baird from Girl Defined - Having Courage When the Bathing Suit is Way Too SmallEditor's note: Should the modesty level of a uniform worn for group sports really be that much of a problem? Why is everything in the world of fundamentalist / evangelical world so much more difficult than out in the world? You play basketball, then you don the shorts and shirt, you swim you wear your team swimsuit. It is really not that hard. … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – What Do I Do Now?

Answering

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Lust of the EyesEditor's note: Found this gem linked to Biblical Gender Roles blog. Wonder if Anderson feels the same way now that a male doctor saved the life of his wife and youngest child. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Trust Your Own Feelings?

quotingquiverfull

by C. S. Lewis as quoted by Vaughn Ohlman at True Love Doesn't WaitEditor's note: Of course we know that Vaughn is sharing this paragraph for a two fold purpose. 1) To claim that feelings of love have no place in the decision of whom to marry and 2) to make that fundamentalist claim that feelings are not important at all, that you have to deny them. We all know what this type of emotional denial and thought crimes leads straight to. It's never mentally healthy to deny your own thoughts and emotions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Representing Your King?

quotingquiverfull

by Elizabeth Botkin from Visionary Daughters - What Every Christian Girl Can Learn From KateEditor's note: Almost two years of radio silence from the Botkin sisters, save for the occasional paid online seminar. Neither of them married in that time frame and no one really knows why they suddenly went quiet instead of continually flogging their restrictive lifestyle. But in this piece Elizabeth says that Kate Middleton, wife of the future king of England Prince William, represents the crown in how she dresses, that she doesn't dress or style for her own tastes but to bring glory to the British royal house. I doubt that she picks everything she wears with no amount of her own personal taste … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Early Marriage or You’re a Used Up Whore?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Waiting GameEditor's note: Okay, okay, so perhaps Nancy didn't call older brides whores. But she did say that people who marry later are coming into the marriage 'violated', which is sort of her polite way of saying 'slut' or 'whore'. She's pushing the same idea that Von Ohlman and that disgusting Biblical Gender Roles guy promote, marry very young because if you wait you might commit the sin of lust. … [Read more...]

Ex-Homeschooler Fashion

latebloomer

by Latebloomer cross posted from her blog Past Tense, Present ProgressiveAs a former fundamentalist homeschooled kid, one of many aspects of life that I've had to do a lot of catch up in is fashion.  I grew up choosing clothing based solely on modesty, which in my circles meant that I was shopping in clothing sections meant for the elderly and basically wearing fabric sacks.  Often, I had to make things for myself when even the grandmotherly clothing options failed me.  Everything I wore was at least 4 sizes too big and several inches too short, and I had no idea about choosing colors that complemented my skin tone, no idea about hair, no idea about makeup, no idea about skin and nail ca … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Have Your Babies In Your Teens?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: Now he blames 'feminism' for the rise in older maternal age and the reason that 'selfish women' think that they are entitled to some personal happiness the goals such as careers and educations. Completely ignores the fact that pre-feminism and pre-birth control that women of all ages died in childbirth and that constant breeding does not produce 'healthy children.' … [Read more...]
