jawdrop1

by R. A. Stollar cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousMost Christian homeschoolers know Mary Pride as “the queen of homeschooling,” one of the founders of the Quiverfull movement, the anti-feminism author of The Way Home, or the publisher of the wildly popular magazine “Practical Homeschooling.” But she also wrote a lesser known book in 1985 entitled The Child Abuse Industry: Outrageous Facts About Child Abuse & Everyday Rebellions Against a System that Threatens Every North American Family. It is a remarkable read that calls for a “Second North American Revolution” — namely, having babies, abolishing no-fault divorce, going to church, eliminating foster care, homeschooling, re-in … [Read more...]

Children of Alcoholics

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI found this list of what the likely personality flaws children of alcoholics develop and it struck me that the list isn't just about alcoholism. It could apply to many different types of dysfunction, people raised in extreme religion, with toxic parents, workaholics, drug addicts, whatever.

Book Review – 13:24: A Story of Faith and Obsession by M. Dolon Hickmon

1324

by Suzanne Titkemeyer  cross posted from her blog Seeking The LightBook Review: 13:24: A Story of Faith and Obsession by M. Dolon HickmonA good lesson for me is to never judge a book by its cover, literally.Before I start my review I have to confess that when '13:24' first came to my attention I had no interest in reading it, not even with Vyckie Garrison of NLQ's recommendation. I took one look at the cover, saw the shaggy-haired heavy metal lead singer and the animal skull above and decided this book wasn't something I'd be interested in. I knew there would be descriptions of physical and spiritual abuse and figured I was not going there again because this book would trigger me … [Read more...]

jacksonmugshots

It's ironic that Great Homeschool Conventions will not allow Ryan Stollar of HARO and Homeschoolers Anonymous to speak at their convention but they are likely to defend people like the Jackson family of Perquimans County, North Carolina. Better to protect even abusers than allow someone advocating for the rights of homeschool children. … [Read more...]

monster_mom_love_web

by Erin Harrison from No Greater Joy Magazine - The 'ME' Monster Later, I met this man, a guy who was working with Mark on a job. Something drew me to him. He looked at me and told me, even as I smiled, that there was a sadness in my eyes. It was like a gift. I opened up to this person I did not even know, and he told me how sinful I was. Me? Sinful? I was sinned against as an innocent child. I was rejected by nasty people. I was hurt and in pain. How could I be to blame in this? At first it made me angry. … [Read more...]

Cannot stomach the photos of abusers and their abused so here's a pretty picture of sun conure parrots instead

The posting at Ladies Against Feminism and Christian Worldview has a very triggering photograph of abuse.My suggestion is that you tell your husband that you want to be married to him, and that your goal is reconciliation, but that you are no longer willing to live under abuse.

Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Game of Thrones and Sexual Consent

This might have been Dany's wedding night but there's still no much in the way of sexual consent going on.

by Suzanne TitkemeyerHow can we expect the ideas of sexual consent by women to be understood by people such as Chris Jeub when patriarchal fundamentalist ideas of rape and purity culture have been adopted by many way, way outside of the patriarchal world. Not only adopted but embraced, promoted, explained away.This week there has been quite a discussion going on in the blogsphere on the idea of sexual consent because of last Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones" and the reaction of the writer and director over the outcry over the sexual encounter shown between two of the main characters. … [Read more...]
