The Power of the Transformed Wife – Slutty, Slutty Yoga Pants

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLucky chapter 13 today on a Friday. The title is 'How Are You Dressing?' and it's all about modesty. A pile of shaming and blaming and defrauding, oh my! Tighten up your yoga pants.Thankfully this is a very short chapter, even if it's rather disjointed and filled with shaming.The author starts off by discussing what others and other churches believe about what a Godly woman should wear. Alright, I'll give her bonus points for at least acknowledging that there are differences in what people believe is appropriate. She says that many take their advice from the Old Testament, but that is wrong too because we're no longer obligated to follow anything in the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 Lori Alexander is the Most Modest Ever?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - The Harm in Worldly FineryEditor's note: While Lori isn't speaking about the sin of yoga pants this seems very hypocritical from the few photos she has of herself posted online. While not arrayed in a ton of gold, pearls or designer goods she looks very well dressed. According to this below you should take care to look plain, making it sound like if you do not adorn yourself in cast offs too humble even for Goodwill then you are sinning. Oh the slippery slope of judging the modest of others merely opens it up for others to judge you. Best to wear what's suitable that you like and not worry about the modest of others for them. … [Read more...]

The Sin of Yoga Pants?

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeEditor's note: Written in Oct. 2016 around the time of the launch of Lori Alexander's new book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife'This morning as I was preparing upcoming posts for No Longer Quivering I ended up using a quote from always unpleasant and constantly blaming in a shameful way Lori Alexander.If you don't know who Lori is consider yourself lucky. Lori was once affiliated with Ladies Against Feminism, although it's been a while since I've seen her finger prints on anything at their site. She used to have a blog called 'Always Learning' that truthfully should have been labeled 'Always Closed Minded … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: World War 2 Started Feminism and Immodesty?

by Melissa of Far Above Rubies - Modesty and My Changing WardrobeEditor's note: Now this is a new twist on the idea of the birth of feminism and women's rights I'd not considered. Except... leggings and pants worn under skirts for women were around long before WWII, and in Biblical days EVERYONE wore skirts (robes), making her claims that WWI was the start of the crumbling of gender roles in dress pretty ridiculous. Linking it to abortion? Ludicrous! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Defrauding Men on Facebook!?

by Kenneth Wieske from Reformed Perspective as quoted by The Transformed Wife - The Shame of Public NakednessEditor's note: Lori and the author are defining 'Public Nakedness' by the narrow definition of a woman in a pair of panties and a bra, which could cover a long, long list of possible levels of modesty/immodesty, from three postage stamp sized pieces of cloth with string all the way to sturdy mid-thigh to mid-arm Mormon underwear. There's a lot of room there for the interpretation of immodesty. The gist is that this Christian man is feeling defrauded by someone else's Facebook picture. Real mature. Instead of  just clicking off he's whining about it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Godless Sluts Wear Yoga Pants?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Women Wanting to Do What is Right in Their Own EyesEditor's note: Flipping out over yoga pants? Since when did wearing comfortable clothing translate into rebellion against men and God? There are many men that walk around in utili-kilts or short shorts in this area of the world in the summer time, yet I never see hordes of women being tempted into lust over this. You know it's a day ending in 'Y' when Lori says nasty denigrating blaming things about other women. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Let Me Tell You How to Look?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Your AppearanceEditor's note: Strangely enough Steve stays away from telling you to cover your bits and that skirts must touch your ankles, instead going right to ugliness, body modification and plastic surgery. That's pretty extreme and it's not like plastic surgery doesn't help correct legitimate conditions such as a deviated nose septum or having growths removed from your face. Anderson is right about one thing, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is very subjective and personal. Interesting mentions in this piece about losing weight. One has to wonder if he is on his wife to lose weight considering how much she mentions … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Idolatry and Modesty?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Making Idols Out Of IdolsEditor's note: Since it's bikini season and the quiverfull crowd is baying for the blood of any harlot not covering herself from knee to elbow many of the 'righteous' bloggers are upset. Personally I do think that many of the modesty crowd do make an idol out of being the most modest and feminine and stick out of a crowd in a way that draws much more attention to themselves. I thought the whole purpose of modest dress as described by Paul in the scriptures was as a way to blending in and not standing out. … [Read more...]
