Quoting Quiverfull: Men Need to Help Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Appreciating Your HusbandEditor's note: This is a good example of thinking your way is the only right way. In the unquoted bit Lori starts off with a story about the television show 'Candid Camera' before awkwardly seguing into men going to war, her bad neck and lifting up that case of Costco toilet paper. Some women can pick up things just as heavy as men and it does not make them any less women. Some men cannot do that. Again, it does not affect their status as men. Ridiculous point here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Make Men’s Lives Harder?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles just in time for International Women's Day - Real Men DO Provide and Real Women DO Appreciate it Editor's note: Larry has been absent from blogging for awhile now, but he's back. This is taken from his latest, which is another piece on gender roles and how women should never work unless the wolf is at the door and the man cannot work. This quoted bit is Larry's thoughts on the great struggle it is to take up his version of gender roles God's way. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Wanting Recognition Undignified?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Woman of DignityEditor's note: Between Nancy, Lori Alexander and Debi Pearl there are some tightly defined roles with ever increasing numbers of rules and must dos posted daily. Now Nancy says we must be like Victorian women and behave in dignified ways. More rules. There's nothing wrong with wanting recognition for your achievements, large or small, no matter how Nancy spins it. A woman having wants and needs is just too threatening to the weak men in her cult. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists are Dissatisfied and Angry?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - The Future is Female?Editor's note: Holy Projection, Batman! Now that Hillary Clinton has reemerged after her disastrous loss in the 2016 presidential race Lori decides to claim that American women who are secular are just dissatisfied and angry. I don't know, most of these female cultural enforcers are the ones that seem the most angry in their words and filled with the biggest fibs. While some women in the warmer climates did go nearly topless it sure was not happening at the Washington D.C. rally. They would have ended up with frostbite. Plus, the pussy hat is something very different than a 'vagina hat'. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Church or Children?

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are All Lazy Gossips?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Women Have a Tendency to be Lazy and GossipEditor's note: I had another post all lined up for this morning and then I saw this post by Lori Alexander, whose blog really should be renamed 'Always Judging You in the Most Nasty Possible Fashion'. I read the title and thought, 'WHAT?!?' The most lazy and gossipy women I've ever encountered were all stay at home women heavily involved running their local fundamentalist church. It's the opposite to what she's saying. Women who know their worth, who are busy with fulfilling tasks, be they home and children, volunteer positions or careers, don't have the time to waste worrying about what others think, or … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Koran and the Bible Teach the Same Gender Roles?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles -Biblical Gender Roles Vs Quranic Gender RolesEditor's note: This is from the top most piece at Larry's site if you want to read it in it's entirety. To condense it down Larry spends many paragraphs trying to prove that the Quran is a false off shoot of the Bible, that Mohammad was wrong and every other horrible conclusion that Good Christian Patriarchs love to trot out about Islam and Muslims before saying that they did get the idea of gender roles 100% right. That's some mighty theological Twister playing there on Larry's behalf. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Boys Equal Messy House?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Mother's BoysEditor's note: Welcome to another episode of 'Cognitive Dissonance with Nancy Campbell'. Remember all that recent lecturing and hectoring by Nancy that you must keep your house immaculate while smiling and controlling your thoughts? Apparently that does not apply in her world if you have a pile of boys to raise. She just cannot make up her mind what is and isn't the most important. Plus generalizations about the sexes don't help anyone. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adrenaline Rush Staves Off Sexual Impurity?

by Shalom Pearl Brand of No Greater Joy - Adrenaline RushEditor's note: While encouraging your children to find their passion and guiding them through the hormonal waters of adolescence is a responsible thing most parents will do, it's not going to prevent everyone from impure thoughts and actions. People are all individuals, with differing needs, triggers and paths. Quiverfull loves to reduce complex issues down to simple formulas. Too bad that does not usually work out well for anyone. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Better Be Bowing and Scraping?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Appreciating Your SpouseEditor's note: To be completely fair here Anderson did mention one short paragraph about how a husband should be appreciative over a wife. But then he spent the next three paragraphs telling a wife how she is to esteem her husband. Seems a bit lopsided doesn't it. Are we really expected to make a fuss over a man doing something that is his responsibility in the first place? The sexism is rampant. Having a penis does not exempt you from doing your share of running the household and you shouldn't have to be petted and thanked every single time you manage to load the dishwasher! Ladies, when your husband lands … [Read more...]
