Quoting Quiverfull: Look ‘Hot’ But Not Too ‘Hot’?

quotingquiverfull

by Bethany Baird at Lies Young Women Believe - When Looking Hot Gets You More AttentionEditor's note: So many times we've discussed the dangerous implications of the whole modesty culture that surrounds Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity, the shaming and blaming that's done in the name of modesty, how it all plays into the purity culture/rape culture dichotomy and how destroying it can be to your inner self. Now they've come up with a different angle, the hot selfie, that thing many do on social media, they're making it all about your relationship with Jesus.

by DE FC Jonnpedro from Facebook as quoted by Vyckie GarrisonEditor's note: Make sure you look at the photo accompanying this post at Facebook. It's set so that it cannot be copied and shared here and it's a representation of slut shaming in the church.

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons While the following may not be a completely universal experience, in my experience it tends to be a common one: when a rape victim starts talking about their experience (especially on the internet), inevitably someone somewhere is going to say something along the lines of “you need to take responsibility for your own choices that led to this.” And then they are shocked– shocked, I say– when someone responds with “stop victim blaming us.” After all, how could they be victim blaming?

I need a different graphic for this, something like a dropped and shattered coffee cup because this is pretty bad.  … [Read more...]
