“Quiverfull” Blogger’s Advice for Christian Wives: Don’t Ask Husbands to Help Around the House

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder from Raw StoryEditor's note: In the last few months so much poisonous quiverfull theology has emerged from the blog Always Learning by Ladies Against Feminism editor Lori Alexander. Believing that getting your children to obey by beating them? Yes. Saying that no woman is physically or emotionally or intellectually capable of holding a job like a man? Yes. Believing that every women is to be at the beck and call of every man? Yes. Many of us at NLQ have lived through the pain and harm that these ideas cause and hope no one else falls for this. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Promotes Child Abuse?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Childish NatureEditor's note: Lori Alexander, one of the ladies at Ladies Against Feminism, has come out in favor of Michael Pearl's version of child abuse. She's writing a series promoting Pearl's book 'To Train Up A Child'. She never uses the words 'rod', only once using the relatively benign word 'spanking' while engaging in the type of coded language double-speak most who abuse their children in quiverfull use. Disgusting and perverted. Thankfully the Alexanders no longer have young children to abuse in this manner! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Courtship is ‘Safer’ Than Dating?

by Rowina Seidler as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism from Ruby in the Rough - Courtship vs BoyfriendsEditor's note: No where in this article does the author come out and give that hoary old untrue Christian trope about giving away pieces of your heart, but it's a close thing. Sounds like her idea of courtship does not involve developing feelings or attraction to a guy, it sounds more like an extended job interview. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women’s Personality Quirks Are Sin?

by Andree Seu Peterson from World - When Personality Quirks Become Sinful and as quoted by Ladies Against FeminismEditor's note: One of the hardest to understand things for many outside of the Quiverfull movement is the willingness of women to always take the blame for everything, and allow men a free pass for the same behavior. This is a perfect example for this type of thinking. How can natural 'quirks' that we all have, female and male, be automatically sinful? The author is also advising the 'fake it til you make it' behavior that has wreaked havoc for so many of us. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Two Generations of Narcissistic Children?

by Bruce Frohen from The Imaginative Conservative - The West's War on Children as quoted by Ladies Against FeminismEditor's note: Clearly there is some 'imagination' going on here in this assertion. As per usual while making these alarming statements about how awful, self-centered and toxic modern non-Christian parenting is there are zero legitimate facts, figures or studies cited. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Weak Women Are Seduced by Feminism?

by Anonymous editor over at Ladies Against Feminism - Capturing Weak Women and Weak MenEditor's note: Oh boy! They call those that do not embrace their views 'weak'. Why is there always so much insensitive name-calling that goes hand-in-hand with fear mongering in the Quiverfull world? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Evangelical Complimentarianism is Run Amok?

by Janie B. Cheaney at World magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Upside-Down HeadshipEditor's note: Let the records show that once in a century or two the ladies at LAF don't immediately go for the sickest most dysfunctional take on all things purported to be Biblical. But starting with the victim-blaming sort of almost cancels out the good in this bit on how men aren't supposed to be petty tyrants because Bible. The original author finished up the piece by also bemoaning the fact that many of these women walk away from faith when they walk away from Mr. Petty Tyrant. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Real Men Hate Paying Taxes and Hate Feminism, Gays and the Poor?

by Jacob Bass as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Dying Breed of Real MenEditor's  note: One thing that stands out harshly in Quiverfull, Fundamentalism and Evangelicals circles is the need to constantly define what is 'manly' or 'masculine' This happens while deliberately denigrating feminists, non-heterosexuals and those poor that receive benefits from others. This piece hits all those marks. Why do you think it is that men in this movement are so obsessed with defining manhood? Could it be because they aren't that 'manly' in the first place? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So the Problem When Looking is Really Judgmentalism Not Lust?

Found on Ladies Against Feminism but written by Tim Challies from Challies.com - It's Not Just a Guy ThingEditor's note: The part quoted by Ladies Against Feminism is very odd, just the beginning of the post, without going into the scary-blame-y meat of this thing. The first part was the standard yapping about men looking at women with lust.  According to Tim Challies it is not so much an issue of men ogling random women, but women also looking at folks and judging them. Way to take a Christians-mostly problem in the church and make it all about blaming women. Most people not in the church do not care if others are looking at them and secretly lusting. Very creepy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Any Suppression of Your Fertility is Wrong?

by Tamara Rajakariar from MercatorNet and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Do Women Need to Have Periods?Editor's note: This bit was said by a fertility 'practitioner' practicing in Australia.  Not a medical doctor. It is my understanding that with issues related to your period one of the first things that physicians tend to try to ease the problems are hormone-based birth control pills. Which is exactly the opposite of what this expert is saying you need to do. How exactly is using birth control to ease problems with your cycle causing women to be more masculine? … [Read more...]
