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...]

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.

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Husbands Should Control Wives?

 by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Husbands Using My Posts to Convict Their WivesEditor's note: Still not entirely sure what's so evil and wrong with a working wife asking a working husband to help out with the chores and running of the household. If the working hours are evenly split between the two should not also the parenting tasks and housework be too? What about splitting according to who is skilled at what task?  Lori spends a lot of her posting in the unquoted parts telling working women how to pray for under employed husbands so that they can squeeze a buck and stay home instead of meeting the financial needs of the family. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay Silent Even if You Know More?

by Sarah's Daughter from the Sarah's Daughter Blog - Competing WivesEditor's note: This is a really bad idea we've seen floated many times in the Quiverfull movement. Let the man take on any task he pleases and even if you have a PhD in that particular task you as the wife are never to open your mouth. Which is so wrong. Everyone has different talents and it really is wisdom if you have the person in the marriage that is talented in a certain area do that task. Offering help or suggestions is not being critical either! There's no element of competition in doing what you are talented at. … [Read more...]
