Quoting Quiverfull: Stay Thin and Beautiful So Your Husband Will Be Faithful?

by Lori Alexander of  The Transformed Wife - Looking Good for Our HusbandEditor's note: Lori's issues with food are clearly on display in the unquoted bits of this. Plus it's right back to the modesty-shaming by a woman that showed her upper thighs in a photo. Do you know who the most important person you should be trying to please is? You! Not everyone else. The title of this piece is cracking me up with laughter because the way it's worded sounds to me like Lori is stating we're all married to the same guy. Heaven forfend! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Female Warriors Are Butch?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - What a Little Girl Does With a Reconnaissance-by-Artillery Weaponized Water Balloon LauncherEditor's note: I would hate to be a little girl in Tim Bayly's straight-laced strictly-gendered world. No fun, just Barbies and making everything pretty. Water balloon fights are some of the most fun you can have in the summer as a kid. You get to expend energy in creaming people like your brother and you end up soaking wet on a hot summer day in the process. Add 'Killjoy' to being sensitive about his sexuality and easily offended to Bayly's list of weird. So many things in this world are neither gendered or sexual. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Judging Modesty?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - No, I am Not Ultra-ConservativeEditor's note: So Lori is being told that she's 'immodest' and she does not much like it. I have stated here in the past that some of the outfits Lori wears would have gotten her in trouble at many churches. Her post just proves how slippery a slope deciding what others should wear to be 'modest' is. People should dress in what makes them feel good, and not because someone else has fixed ideas about what they should wear. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: We Must Pray For President Trump?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Will We Do It?Editor's note: Nancy wants us to pray for our president, equating it to a story in the Old Testament that has nothing to do with praying for those in authority. And what does Trump slogan 'Make America Great Again' have to do with praying? … [Read more...]

Before You Meet Prince Charming: The Toboggan Ride

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotes from Sarah Mally's book 'Before You Meet Prince Charming' will be in blue text.There are many activities in life that I am clueless about.  I don't know how to play any instruments.  I've never ridden - let alone drove - an off-road vehicle.  My understanding of all things equestrian is based on what my best friend who adored horses told me.   … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Offering Frozen Embryo Services is Gay?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Apple Park: $1 Billion Gets You No Child Care, But They'll Freeze Your Kiddos....Editor's note: More thin-skinned and easily bruised masculinity from Tim Bayly. He's acting like Apple is offering a on-site mandatory abortion clinic instead. Plus, this concern about daycare? Let's be real here, guy that Bayly don't give a rip about the lake of daycare anywhere because they believe women should only stay home pumping out babies and raising them. Stop with the fake concern already and admit he just wanted an excuse to call another man 'gay'. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Another Fake Pearl Letter About Homeschooling?

From No Greater Joy - From Our Mailbox: Advice from the Oldest HikersEditor's note: Notice I did not put the author. In NGJ magazine the author is listed as Monty Chipman, but the only reference to that name is a long defunct Facebook profile with exactly three entries. This could be a Pearl sock-puppet busy echoing the Pearl line of 'Skooling? We don't need no stinkin' formal edoomakayshun!' What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dancing the Wrong Way is Sin?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Gayer Than the Kiwi Queen of the Fire Island Fruit FestivalEditor's note: This is beyond disgusting! I nearly shared this last week when thin-skinned afraid of effeminacy Tim Bayly first started whining over it, but Doug Wilson takes it to an entirely new nasty level. Where's the sin in creatively worshiping God in the way that fulfills you? There's nothing sexual at all about the performance. Heaven forfend that either of these nasty Christian pastors ever have to attend a ballet or opera. The video they are objecting to can be found at the end of the post. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Wearing Vagina Hats and Used Sanitary Napkins Sinful?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Empowerment By Doing As They Please?Editor's note: Oh please! They were pink pussy cat hats, not 'Vagina Hats' and I must have missed the sanitary napkin brigade. Lori's answer to her commenter and her twisting of what was worn at the march shows just how thin-skinned and unthinking she is when challenged. She should be addressing negative comments directly, not erasing them or using them as a launching pad for another horrible post of hers. … [Read more...]
