Quoting Quiverfull: How Can Accountability and Standards Be ‘Wrong’?

by Karen Campbell at her blog That Mom - Patriarchy on Trial, part four A new, organized, and clearly focused group of former homeschool students, motivated, in part, by the bad fruits of patriocentric homeschooling, have taken up the banner for homeschooling reform, putting the very good ideals at the heart of homeschooling at risk.

News: Utah Modesty Police Photoshop Yearbook Photos

from Michael Stone at his blog Progressive Secular Humanist - American Taliban: Utah Modesty Police Edit Girls' Yearbook PhotosEditorial note: This has been all over the media the last few days. Apparently  Good Christians/Mormons (tm) decided that tank tops and bra straps were the big No-No and decided to keep Utah boys pure of lustful thoughts by photoshopping (badly) sleeves onto shirts covering shoulders and bra straps. More slut-shaming in this modesty standard that wasn't even applied consistently.Modesty standards and slut shaming isn't just for Biblical Patriarches, Minthegap's Adam Gregorin and church busybodies any more. … [Read more...]
