Quoting Quiverfull: Defining Marital Abuse?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles at his blog Biblical Gender Roles - The Frustrated Feminist WifeOur pal that thinks women don't have a right to refuse sex in marriage is at it again. Now he's worked up a mock police interview to show none of his points are actual abuse. Typical abuser behavior, justifying his abuse of the wife. Justifying economic abuse (against the Biblical standard that says a man supports his wife/family or he's no better than a sinful heathen.) an he's claiming he does not condone rape. Unbelievable the length some of these "Good Christian Patriarchs" will go to excuse their own abusive words and natures. Clearly he's never seen any episodes of "Law & Order: … [Read more...]

On Disguising Logical Fallacies in ‘Feminist’ Arguments

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons While the following may not be a completely universal experience, in my experience it tends to be a common one: when a rape victim starts talking about their experience (especially on the internet), inevitably someone somewhere is going to say something along the lines of “you need to take responsibility for your own choices that led to this.” And then they are shocked– shocked, I say– when someone responds with “stop victim blaming us.” After all, how could they be victim blaming? Didn’t you just hear them argue for agency and autonomy? They are the real feminist in this conversation because real feminists “acknowledge that … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Seductive Women Are As Bad As Male Rapists?

quotingquiverfull

Good catch by Calvinist Janeway! She posted this on her blog Explorations in Egalitarianism - John Piper, Rape, Seduction, and Sin Leveling The quote is something that was tweeted by John Piper of  Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.Editor's note: Piper deleted this shortly after posting it on Twitter. He must have gotten some well-deserved fundigelical push back over this idea that somehow female seducers and male rapists are the same thing. A seducer can be resisted, but a rapist takes violently what he wants. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Duggar Family Compared Abortion to Slavery?

standtruerape

This one is from a Korean gossip site but it appears to be true. Visited the Duggar Instagram site and sure enough, they are using an offensive graphic linking abortion to slavery. Cannot copy the graphic so I'm just linking to it on their Instagram. It's from a Pro Life site called StandTrueDotCom, which is linked to Operation Rescue and run by prominent pro-lifer Bryan Kemper from Ohio. The graphics at the site are pretty over the top and we'll be posting a number of them at the end of this post.From KPopStarz.com - '19 Kids and Counting' Duggar Family Compares Abortion to Slavery on Instagram: Twitter Users Outrage, Jessa Duggar Retweets to Support … [Read more...]

This is What Child Abusers Look Like in Homeschooling Communities

childabusers

by R. L. Stollar cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousWe like to think that we know what child abusers look like. That we can pick them out of the crowd based on their creepy mustaches, darkly-tinted cargo vans, or their giant, thick-rimmed glasses.But those stereotypes are just that: stereotypes.And like all stereotypes, they fall tragically short. The fact is, child abusers are not Others. They do not walk around with signs that say, “Monster.” They are able to violate our trust — and children’s lives and bodies and minds — because we trust them. Which means they have our trust, because they are a part of our community. They are friends and family and teachers and loved ones … [Read more...]

Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Game of Thrones and Sexual Consent

This might have been Dany's wedding night but there's still no much in the way of sexual consent going on.

by Suzanne TitkemeyerHow can we expect the ideas of sexual consent by women to be understood by people such as Chris Jeub when patriarchal fundamentalist ideas of rape and purity culture have been adopted by many way, way outside of the patriarchal world. Not only adopted but embraced, promoted, explained away.This week there has been quite a discussion going on in the blogsphere on the idea of sexual consent because of last Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones" and the reaction of the writer and director over the outcry over the sexual encounter shown between two of the main characters. … [Read more...]

My Abusive Relationship Was Typical

Samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The DragonsTrigger warning for abuse and sexual violence Last week, I wrote an article for xoJane and I shared some things about my past that I haven’t shared on the internet before. I don’t enjoy talking about my abusive relationship at all, and I especially avoid thinking about my last semester at PCC, which was nightmarish with exceedingly few good memories. I was extremely vulnerable in that piece, knowing that there would be people around the internet that would shit on it. … [Read more...]
