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

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: “Gynecist” is a Real Word?

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’

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...]

...and of course People Magazine was the media outlet that forked over the big dough to have all the details first. Some are kind of surprising. Some not so much. It had already been announced that they weren't going to have wedding cake, they wanted a ice cream sundae bar instead. Hey, different strokes. Smacks of a teeny tiny (hopeful here) bit of thought rebellion.People Magazine - Three Surprising Things Not At Jessa Duggar's Wedding The couple, who wrote their own wedding vows, were saving their very first kiss until after they'd said they were married. But they had a surprise for the crowd eagerly waiting to see them lock lips on stage after Pastor Mike Schadt introduced them as … [Read more...]
