Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - What Makes a Woman Feminine?Editor's note: Skipping a lot of quotes from the various Biblical commentaries that Lori used to justify her own thoughts on the subject. But here's the rub, there are women in the workforce out there that do fit the Biblical model of meek and quiet spirit, that go about their day peacefully blessing everyone they encounter. Why should the belief that men and women are equal automatically translate to loud boisterous behavior? It doesn't. This is another assumption by those outside of the workforce, like Lori. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Boys Cannot Sit in Classrooms?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Raising Sons in This Feminist Anti Male CultureEditor's note: This is from a rather ranty posting by Lori Alexander on Feminism that wanders all over the place, quotes Trump mouthpiece Kellyanne Conway before turning into a 'see what a great job I did homeschooling my sons away from evil breasts and vaginas in a government school'. No, Ms. Alexander, schools are not set up to turn boys into girls, drug them stupid or expose them to prurient and salacious ideas. It teaches boys the same knowledge that little girls get. The author of this post, Leslie Loftis, goes on to say how horrible feminism has been for men which many men would agree. “In … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is Satanic?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - Feminism During the Roman EmpireEditor's note: Word salad by Lori explaining why feminism is Satan's plan for destroying the world. Did not quote the piece before this that involved Roman culture and head coverings but it is a spectacular illogical leap from that to this, just like the crazy non sequitur leaps from topic to topic in her book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife' She needs an editor badly. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Demeans and Hurts Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Feminists LostEditor's note: Unquoted is the bit where Lori claims everyone in America really wants a return to traditional gender roles and that birth control must be ended. If that's not enslavement, oppression and demeaning women by forcing them to birth a pile of babies they aren't emotionally, socially, or financially prepared for then I don't know what is. This election was not determined by a rejection of feminism, it was that there were two bad candidates and America went with the bad candidate that they don't know for sure what he'll do. The devil you don't know. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Have Miserable Marriages?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Feminist Sisters Who Mock and Attack MeEditor's note: Lori does not get that it's not her that people are attacking, it's not her personally, it's her horrible toxic shaming and blaming theology that is so incredible awful! A personal attack would be saying she's ugly, or she's unforgiving, or mean-spirited, not that what she believes is wrong. You can hate the belief and still not disparage the other person. I do hate her assumptions about all other women outside of her high demand group. No Lori, you are wrong about feminists having more miserable marriages. No matter how hard women in the CPM try to convince outsiders how glorious their … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Today Do Not Know Their Place?

by Lori Alexander from her new blog The Transformed Wife - The Power of a Transformed WifeEditor's note: This is the evil core of what Ms. Alexander is assuming about other women in our society today. Apparently this new blog is where Lori's going to keep telling them what to do... plus it looks like Lori has a book coming out by the same name. At least we now know what all that complaining and whining she was doing about the 'Jesus Calling' books and community was about. It was sheer jealousy! … [Read more...]

A Journey of Unlearning

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comCongratulations to Samantha on this new phase of her life attending seminary!This is my first official paper for seminary. It’s for my hermenuetics class, answering the question “Who and what circumstances made me the kind of interpreter of religious texts that I am today?” A lot of this y’all have heard from me before, but I do mention a few concepts I haven’t talked about on the blog before, so if you have questions about anything I say here, feel free to ask– this was written for a man familiar with speech-act theory, after all. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Jezebel Women Compete With Men?

by Todd Tomasella from Safeguard Your Soul - The Godly Woman vs JezebelEditor's note: So now he adds 'home wrecking' and 'unmarried withered old maids' to his fright fest of how women not 100% fully submitted to a man will be punished. Why are men in the more extreme reaches of fundagelicalism so threatened by any small amount of power or personal agency possessed by a woman? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Girls Should Be Meek, Mild and QUIET!?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Terrible Advice For GirlsEditor's note: Lori is reacting to a screen shot going around Facebook from Instagram that I have posted below. The advice given is pretty decent because it advises girls to have healthy boundaries, to say no when the situation warrants it, to get messy, dirty, loud, and to have some fun in this life. All the things that clearly would make Lori Alexander and all the other good female cultural enforcers lose their freaking minds. Cannot have girls speaking their minds, laughing loudly or wearing their hair as they please now can we? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Getting Married is an Accomplishment?

by Vaughn Ohlman from Let Them Marry - The Accomplishment of Miss PuffingtonEditor's note: Vaughn is speaking of a Huffington Post writer who is talking about her own engagement and marriage as something to celebrate but not an actual accomplishment. For the record her name is not 'Miss Puffington' Your thoughts? Accomplishment or just usual life stage? … [Read more...]
