Questioning the Pearls – Modesty is Everyone’s Issue

This may well be another of those faux Pearl letters just written to make a point. The letter writer says that if a man has lust problems, that they are his problems. A 'ministry supporter' claims that it's everyone elses responsibility to make sure men aren't tempted with the penis-demon. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull – Lori Alexander Modesty Police?

by Lori Alexander on Facebook and on Things Godly Women Say - Spanking ThongsEditor's note: You may notice it's been a few days since there was a posting. I am right in the middle of my international move to Costa Rica and have driving down to the New Orleans area to visit relatives and ship my car from the port of New Orleans. Postings may be spotty and not as frequently until after I get settled. I fly out on the 23rd and  none of my elderly relatives here in South Louisiana have wifi, or any internet. I've haven't forgotten you or this place, I'm just in transition. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Accept it Ladies – Men Will Look at Your Behind?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Should Christian Women Wear Leggings As Pants?Editor's note: So far Larry has said that women tempt men by wearing yoga pants, then he said that the women who tempt are either using some movement of their bodies or by flirty behavior. Now he's claiming that there's nothing wrong with men looking at women and women just have to suck it up. What next? Telling us to be grateful when they look? Larry takes more different positions than a man made of rubber playing Twister. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cause Lust by Their Actions?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Should Christian Women Wear Leggings as Pants?Editor's note: Well, at least Larry-boy says earlier in this piece that a man looking at a woman lustfully is a man's sin. But then he goes as far as to claim that scantily dressed women acting in a flirtatious manner are what causes lust. But here's the problem with that one woman's supposedly flirtation manner can also be nothing of the sort,  manner completely misinterpreted by a horny guy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Leggings Ignite Unquenchable Lust?

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - Should Christian Women Wear Leggings as Pants?Editor's note: Monday morning nausea, Larry sounds off in the most cringe-worthy way possible to Lori Alexander's pet peeve of yoga pants. Just the thought that Larry is out there getting turned on by spandex might be the most compelling reason ever to not wear them out in public. Don't make Larry more horny please for the love of God! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dress Like a Whore, Get Raped?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - On the Moral Necessity of Judging Books by the CoverEditor's note: This post started out almost as a racist rant about how Hollywood feeds us clues about people based upon dress that carries over into real life. He then uses it to justify feeling nervous about seeing young black men in low-slung jeans and hoodies, claiming it's not 'racist', before arriving at his original point. That point is -- if you dress immodestly someone is going to think you are immediately available. But he claims he's not saying that they should be raped. Yeah, right, subtext is everything, dude. … [Read more...]

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...]
