Was The Media Trolled About Duggar-Seewald Wedding?

jessasewald

by Suzanne TitkemeyerYesterday afternoon I posted a story with links to Radar Online about allegations made by a supposed guest at the Jessa Duggar/Ben Seewald nuptials. Radar Online is a gossip site, but usually they are pretty trustworthy and not given to posting out and out lies. But there were a couple of inconsistencies that stood out in the articles, so I did post a disclaimer. Because of family commitments I was unable to take the time to research why there were some red flags, such as the difference in the names of the guests quoted from the same blogger. … [Read more...]

That First Kiss at Jessa Dugger & Ben Seewald’s Wedding?

jessaben

ETA: Looks like the blog that Radar Online and others took all these 'quotes' from, including quotes from anonymous comments, might be a parody blog. It's all from My Life As A Stay At Home Wife and Mom. So even as some of the media outlets are promoting this as if it were a legitimate story it sounds like there is a strong possibility it was an invented tale. Read with a giant boulder of salt. That skipped kiss is driving some rather strange rumors in the gossip world. All of the rumors are coming from guests of the Duggars at the wedding.The first one is that the Duggar parents didn't know about Jessa and Ben skipping the kiss at the end of the wedding and it made for a very … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Choose LifeNancy is verbose and ranty in this post and one after it answering those that didn't agree with her in the comments.

Quoting Quiverfull: “Gynecist” is a Real Word?

uterus

Ladies Against Feminism still haven't learned their lesson about doing due diligence of the works that they publish as fact. Yesterday they published a piece from American Thinker called Wendy Davis: Dreams from my Uterus that uses the made up word 'Gynecist' as some sort of new word to describe those they called 'feminists' but you or I might say were women that wanted to have the right to make decisions about their reproductive organs. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 65 – 85, ‘The Respectful Wife’

realmarriage4

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons With a chapter title like that, you just know how much I loved it. I probably should have expected this chapter to be more infuriating than the one devoted to men, but I didn’t. My marginalia has a lot more “WTF” and “BS” (which stands for both bullshitand benevolent sexism; nice how that one worked out) than the last chapter did– and I wish I could talk about a lot more than I have the space for. … [Read more...]
