Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is the New ‘Goliath’?

quotingquiverfull

by Bethany Baird of Girl Defined - Feminism is Laughing at Our GodEditor's note: Have you ever noticed it is always the most harshly repressed women that do not want any women to have free agency or basic rights? This is a good example of that strange lack of self awareness in the more repressive forms of Quiverfull Christianity. Which is especially strange considering Jesus treated women as equals in the New Testament. How can they claim to be 'following Christ' when they are clearly in direct opposition to his actions? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If Women Ran The World They’d Just Be Aping Men?

quotingquiverfull

by Elizabeth Scalia from First Things and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - First Things: If Women Ran The WorldEditor's note: In which LAF accuse ladies with feminist tendencies of being like men and wanting to replace men. I don't believe that is the goal of feminism but I do know if women ran the world at least women would make the same wages as men for the same job instead of less, like they do now. Plus, they are claiming you shouldn't make an idol of the family? That's exactly what LAF does in most of their postings! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism Declares Marriage A Crime?

quotingquiverfull

by Jennifer Adams of Boundless as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Difficulty of Admitting We Want to be MarriedEditor's note: At no point in Jennifer Adams piece on Boundless does she blame feminism for women dismissing marriage. That is strictly the spin out of nothing that Ladies Against Feminism does. They read things, like the Bible, like other blogs, come to a completely different conclusion than the meaning inferred and run with that false idea. They seem feminism under every idea. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be married, but not wanting to be married is not some evil feminist plot. Always astounded by the reading comprehension fail in many of LAF's pieces. Guess … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Get Married So You Won’t Have A Heart Attack?

quotingquiverfull

by Nicole M. King originally posted at Mercantor Net as 'Marriage protects from heart disease' before being quoted and renamed by  Ladies Against Feminism - Feminism is Bad For Your Heart HealthEditor's note - LAF is still bloviating over '50 Shades of Grey' mostly, right down to posting articles opposing the movie by people like Vision Forum's Geoffrey Botkin. They have taken time out from that theme to proclaim that feminists have heart attacks, twisting the research that shows married folks, feminism supporters or not, have fewer fatal heart attacks. Disingeniousness at its finest.Here's what LAF had to say about the article and study: … [Read more...]

by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog on The Blaze - Birth Control Pills: Men Get Free Sex, Women Could Get CancerEditor's note: After misunderstanding the research showing that there is a slightly higher risk of a rare brain tumor Matt goes on to claim that the pill makes women leave their masculine husbands and gravitate to the 'feminine' men. There aren't words enough to explain how wrong that is.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Pills Poison That Gives Men Free Sex?

quotingquiverfull

by Matt Walsh of The Matt Walsh Blog at The Blaze - Birth Control Pills: Men Get Free Sex, Women Could Get Cancer Editor's note: Matt is taking the news that some birth control pills might potentially raise the growth rate of certain rare brain tumors to mean 'omg~ birth control pills cause cancer!' He cites an article on Time.com as his source, yet willfully misunderstands what it says. Be careful going to The Blaze because, just like Matt Walsh's blog there are multiple pop ups that go past your pop up blocker.  … [Read more...]

Fundamentalist Approved Feminist Literature

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live I read constantly. It was a way to find out more about the world outside my parents home, and escape from the day in day out monotony, and other than our family movie nights, some of my only entertainment. Some books that I read, were not approved. I speed-read them without my parents knowledge in the library (The Princess Diaries Series, Star Wars Sci-Fi) and later when I had access to book stores bought them and hid them in the cabinet that was mine (Leon Uris and Chiam Potok). Sometimes unapproved books made their way into our house from grandparents downsizing (Readers Digest collections) or a large box of classics a distant … [Read more...]

Can We Please Stop it With the ‘Feminist’ Videos Already?

Screen cap from the video "Slap Her" from Defeating The Dragons site.

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons You’ve probably seen the video that the above image is pulled from– the Facebook-viral “Slap Her.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here. I don’t really want to take the time to dissect all the reasons why this video was actually kind of horrible, but if you’re interested, these two articles covered it rather well:Dr. Rebecca Hains’ ‘Slap Her': Fanpage.it video objectifies girls, exploits boys, and trivializes domestic violence R.L. Stollar’s ‘Slap Her': The So-Called Heartwarming Video that’s Actually Disturbing … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Woman ‘Are’ Equal As Long As They Submit?

Quoting

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Baby Oil on the Bowling BallEditor's note: Now I know this is all so word-salady, verbose, and not the easiest to parse, but if I'm reading it correctly Mr. Wilson is trying to say that there is equality between men and women as long as the wife is submissive and obedient to her husband. … [Read more...]

So, Are You a Feminist?

Image from Defeating The Dragons - Samantha Field

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons It’s become almost de riguer for red-carpet journalists (and others) to confront a female celebrity and demand to know whether or not she considers herself a feminist. This bothers me. From what I’ve seen, most of the time the publication asking doesn’t have any vested interest in their answer (see, a Time magazine writer asking Shailene this question, and then another turning right around and putting “feminist” on their “words to ban” poll). This leads me to believe that these people aren’t confronting these women because they care about feminism, or want to help overturn some of the misconceptions about feminism– they jus … [Read more...]
