“Lies Women Believe” Review: 63 – 90

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from  her blog Samantha P Field.comFair warning: today’s post is a little long. Because of that, I’ve decided to break today’s review up into the same sections that Nancy divides this chapter– “Lies Women Believe About Themselves”. Eve’s Diary These diary entries are supposed to reflect in some way the similarities between this fictional Eve and modern women, especially concerning the “lies we believe,” so I wondered if Nancy was ever going to address one particular statement Eve makes in this entry: I don’t know if [Adam will] ever trust me again.

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Kids Will Be Obese If You Work Outside The Home?

quotingquiverfull

by Laura Keynes from Mercator.net and The Conservative Woman as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Stay At Home Mums vs Super Sized KidsEditor's note: You have to hand it to the LAF crew, they know exactly how to take an article that might just have a grain of common sense or be rather sensible advice and twist the content to fear monger to their readers. This is more of that even if the original author is calling for government support so that mothers don't have to go out and work. Having mother at home isn't going to magically lead to better eating choices for the children either. It takes a sustained commitment by the entire family to make that happen. Plus it would help if there … [Read more...]
