Quoting Quiverfull: Only You Can Do the Housework?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - The Consternation Over HouseworkEditor's note: The beginning of this piece Lori was talking about how something she wrote about women only doing the housework went viral. I cannot find what she's talking about, but it doesn't matter since she's apparently repeating it here again. While she's right that loading and unloading a dishwasher and folding clothes are very quick and easy tasks, it's not clear anywhere in the Bible that either are GENDERED tasks like she claims. Here there are times when my husband has done the dishes and I've mowed the grass. Last night he scrubbed the toilet and vacuumed our guest bedroom while I picked a ton of produce … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Emotions Make Women Lazy?

 by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - 7 Steps to Dealing With a Lazy WifeEditor's note: Hoo boy, this is one of the worst things I've seen in a long time. Someone sends Larry an email complaining that their wife is a lazy rarely-cooking slob and had decided to do something about it after reading through the 'manosphere'. He doesn't say how many children they have or if his wife is in good health or address any of the long list of things that could impact her ability to keep house and cook. Larry responds with the usual tripe. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 3 Washing of the Word (Is She Serving You With Joy or a Sense of Duty?)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 154-156I realized something just now. I skipped 2 pages of my review last post. The last couple paragraphs of that post actually take place after today's section. Apologies. Hopefully this post will get everything sorted out. Text is in purple … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Knitting and Kings, Prophets and Priestly Men?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Knittin' NateEditor's note: Sharing this because it seems like a particularly bad analogy of the whole King/Prophet/Priestly man teachings of the Pearls. Sadly enough the father losing it over the boy who likes to knit is not Michael Pearl. Michael would have likely forced the boy to do something manly for weeks, like break rocks, hunt animals or other macho endeavors to wipe away whatever he perceives as 'girly' or 'traditionally female.' Debi's take on it being alright to allow the boy to knit is almost liberal for her.Combined with last night's Vaughn Ohlman post about how you should teach your son masculine things like plumbing and balancing … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God’s Slave?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Love SlaveEditor's note: Nancy seems to think that being a wife and mother is a sort of slavery instead of an expression of free will and love in our lives. How does that fit with her idea that being a mother and wife is the highest honor and only role for a woman? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Wimpy Husbands?

by Ken Alexander (taking over his wife Lori's blog) from Always Learning - Wimpy Husbands With Rebellious WivesThis poor, poor male just does not understand why a wife with a zillion children to homeschool might not be able to fulfill all of her responsibilities in a timely fashion and is labeling it 'rebellion'? Reads like male Christian woman-bashing at it's finest. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When Did Home Cooking Get Elevated to “Godly” Status?

Very interesting. Apparently Slate magazine posted a piece by a female writer who dared *gasp!* to say that putting a home cooked meal on the table nightly wasn't necessary and to stop fetishizing the entire idea. The ladies at Ladies Against Feminism became so outraged by that statement that they had to refute it not once, but twice on the same day. I am posting bits of each. Tell me what you think. Tempest in a teapot of the end of civilization as we know it?The article from Salon and the quoted pieces they seemed to object to the most Let's Stop Idealizing the Home-cooked Family Dinner by Amanda Marcotte … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Shouldn’t Say ‘Amen’ in Church?

by Steve L. Anderston of Faithful Word Baptist Church from a sermon at Youtube of last Sunday's sermon.From this sermon: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” He quoted I Corinthians 14 as his reason  “Let your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to speak, but they are commanded to be under obedience as also sayeth the law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is shameful for women to speak in the church,” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cooking is Your JOB Woman!?

Stephen L. Anderson quotes from Ramblings of Sheldon and The Friendly Atheist. The Friendly Atheist link has a live blogging of Anderson's sermon with lots of content.  For such a skinny guy Anderson seems particularly focused on food. … [Read more...]
