Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Be Cops, Soldiers or Firefighters?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Should Women Be in the Military, Police Force or Firefighters?Editor's note: This is so insulting to our armed forces and anyone that works in public service positions, like police officers and firefighters. No one disputes that many men are physically stronger than women, but that does not mean there is no place in these fields for women.  Lori also exhibits a breathtaking lack of knowledge concerning the issues of rape for men and women. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Gender Equality in the Home?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Women -Fewer Young People Want Gender Equality in the HomeEditor's note: Lori's trying to make connections between various articles again and failing. At least she's citing an article instead of just pulling her 'facts' out of her, well, never mind. The article she links to is published at the very conservative Washington Examiner, a Washington D.C. area weekly owned by Phillip Anschutz and used as a pro Evangelical mouthpiece for many years. Very biased reporting. Anschutz has many links to big oil and other not good for anyone but big business industries. THIS is who Ms. Alexander is choosing to take her news from - a source that is not well … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Always Weaker?

by members of Lori Alexander's Facebook page as quoted on The Transformed Wife - Why Do Women Despise Being the Weaker Vessel?Editor's note: This is a sad pile of rationalizations for being stay at home moms. Notice not one of them says that they do it because it's what they want to do, or that it makes them happy. Feminism is not so that every women is forced to work outside of the home, it is so that every woman has the option to do that which makes her feel fulfilled in her life. Quiverfull and Lori want to see everyone stripped of any options. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women’s Sports Perverted?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Amanda Nunes Beats the Shit Out of Rhonda RouseyEditor's Note: Tim Bayly uses an expletive in the title of his post yet has the nerve to call a sport perverted? That's some double standards there! He's talking of the UFC bout from last weekend between two women. He's not objecting to the fact that UFC is a very violent sport, he's upset that women dare to participate. In an unquoted part he goes on to put down John Piper's Desiring God for publishing an article in favor of women participating in the UFC. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Does This Sound Like a Proverbs 31 Woman?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - She Does Him Good and Not Evil: 31:12Editor's note: Lori's extrapolating out her own thoughts again and trying to make them 'Biblical'. While some of these are what a good wife will do regardless of what religion, if any, they practice she's really stretching hard on many of them. Example: Lori claims you stay home and keep the house immaculate unlike the words in Proverbs 31 indicating that the lady of the house had servants to do those things while she was about her business. What do you think is the most toxic bit here? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Can Never Teach?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Reasons Women Should Be Able to PreachEditor's note: The words in italics are from an article printed in the UK and the regular font right after is Lori responding directly to those words. This was all so nasty, blaming and shaming, like much of Lori's website, but this part about the periods and harassment is just vitriolic. The last time I checked being harassed is possibly a legal issue as well, so this advice to shut up about these things except to your girlfriends is so disrespectful! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Men Doing Housework Have Less Sex?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Women Who Do Housework Live Longer and Have More SexEditor's note: How very disingenuous of Lori to say that women who do housework have more sex just because of one lone study. One study that only studied men doing housework and their level of sexual activity. Men who do housework and have less sex does not automatically extrapolate out to women doing housework have more sex. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Working Undermine Their Husband’s Masculinity?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Why Do We Think We Know Better Than God?Editor's note: Nancy goes on from here to say that husbands are not in charge of the home. Only a woman can run the home. She also does not say what to do when you're a righteous stay at home submitting mama. Or you have a brood of kids and a husband who refuses to work. Or what to do if your husband is ill, disabled or dead. Those are some strict gender roles there Nancy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Using Roosevelt to Justify Gender Roles and Motherhood?

by Teddy Roosevelt as quoted by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - Teddy Roosevelt on Motherhood...Editor's note: Tim Bayly is also doubling down on the gender roles in this nation by reaching all the way back to a speech given by President Teddy Roosevelt in the last century. It was given to the Congress of Mothers. While it's not surprising that someone a hundred years ago gave a speech promoting motherhood to mothers, in this speech he also promoted some rather good and very liberal for time ideas of education for women and equality in marriage partnerships. Bayly has nothing to say about those things even if we know all these QF guys hate those two ideas.s … [Read more...]
