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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Education Leads to No Sexual Morals?

by Fire Breathing Christian as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism and at Fire Breathing Christian.com - Giving Our Daughters 'The College Experience'Editor's note: What is it about higher education not as a Bible college that extreme elements of the Christian fold, like Quiverfulls, find so incredibly threatening? Is it that their children will be completely out from under their smothering controlling influence and might just start thinking for themselves. Or is it something darker and more twisted? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rape Victim Blaming at LAF?

by an unnamed editor at Ladies Against Feminism - Family Edge: You Can' Say That! Feminists Enraged at Rape VictimEditor's note: I know this is several weeks old but... as usual LAF takes every opportunity to slut shame rape victims. This time they used the outrage over The Pretenders Chrissy Hynde's words about her rape in her recent autobiography to drive home the point that they think if you weren't sober and dressed like a nun that you got what you deserved while bashing the feminist movement. I've refrained from bringing up Ms. Hydne's thoughts about her rape here because it always struck me more as the words of someone that has never emotionally dealt with or healed from what … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Upside Down World – LAF Now Claiming Unwed Pregnancies Not Sinful?

by Chad Ashby as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy is Not a SinEditor's note: While I agree with Ashby that there should not be blaming, shaming or condemnation when someone turns up pregnant out of wedlock it's  not been my experience that places like PRCs or even the pages of LAF are very safe places. This is exactly the kind of ridiculous hypocrisy that the world looks down upon in the churches, saying one thing, doing exactly the opposite.  Even the places that treat unwed expectant mothers well tend to turn and blame them the moment the baby is born and the mother attempts to sign up for any social network benefits. You cannot have it both w … [Read more...]
