Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

by Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com - Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed TodayEditor's note: Mr. Jacobson started off his essay bemoaning the 'I'll wear whatever I feel like' movement, that is obviously some sort of backlash against the slut-shaming of the purity crowd. It is prime bikini season right now, which means it's also prime Evangelical pearl-clutching and slut-shaming over clothing choices season. For once the Duggar family's idea of shouting 'Nike' so that all the boys will stare at their shoes instead of revealed female flesh feels about a million times healthier than this dad's ranting. A quick warning about his site, just going … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Men are Going to Lust Over Other Women?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - How Should Christian Women Respond to Their Men Looking at Other Women?Editor's note: Larry's been rattling on about Chris Matthews being caught on a hot mic admiring Donald Trump's wife Melania. He posted a link to a long three part series he wrote about how women should respond to the men in their life looking in a sexual manner at other women. Go into Larry's site and follow the links to the series if for no other reason than to view a series of photographs of men looking at women in the most obvious and creepy way. A cavalcade of creeps. The guys all look like they are preparing to act on their thoughts. Creepy, wrong and so disrespectful … [Read more...]

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Just the swallows return to Capistrano every St. Joseph's Day in the spring, the advent of Bikini Season brings a sudden rise in the many blog posts and articles in Quiverfull/Evangelical/Fundamentalism decrying all the immodesty of this world defrauding boys of their innocence and hysterical fear mongering over pornography. Cries of 'Keep Our Boys PURE!' are not just uttered in the movie 'The Music Man' but from every internet bully pulpit. … [Read more...]

Godly Gertrude and the Harding University Dress Code

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThis graphic perfectly illustrates the puritanical culture found in many Evangelical churches. Women are considered lust magnets, sure to attract weak, pathetic Christian men who have little control over their sexual desires. Starting with primary school age, females are taught to never, ever expose any of the sexual parts of their bodies–breasts, cleavage, bare shoulders, legs, and ass. In other words, girls and women are expected to dress similar to burka-wearing Muslims. The only difference is the head covering. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Giving Your Man Sex is Defrauding Him?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Stories of Sexual Denial in Marriage Episode 8Editor's note: There's 'that' word again, Michelle Duggar's favorite one, 'Defrauding'. See, here's the thing, no one owes anyone else sex, not even in marriage. If you're not getting sex in your marriage and it's important to you does it not behoove you to try to rationally find out the why without all this threatening to divorce? Why is it that all these problems in Evangelical/Fundamentalist Christianity are never resolved by actually talking to the person you're having issues with? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Even Completely Covering Up Can Be Immodest?

by Christy Peterson from A Lovely Calling - ModestyEditor's note: So now extremist Christianity and Quiverfull are seeking to move the goalposts yet again on modesty? It's not enough to cover up almost completely, you now cannot wear anything that makes you stand out or draws attention to you. But isn't that what many of the adherents to the Christian modesty people do, stand out from the crowd as oddly dressed? So confusing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Body Is Only For Your Future Husband’s Eyes?

by Beecher Proch from Girl Defined - Guy Thoughts: Come on Girl, Keep it Modest (thanks to Bruce Gerencser for posting about Beecher Good catch!)Editor's note: Lots and lots of slut-shaming/women-blaming at the original link even if the author admits that men at 100% responsible for where they put their gaze. Guessing he has no one around to yell 'Nike' for him to look at his shoes when some half-dressed temptress crosses his path. He fails to realize that no matter how much a pretty girl, or any girl, covers up there's always going to be a squad of guys sitting in the pews popping pocket rockets when they go by. It's NORMAL!!! … [Read more...]
