Quoting Quiverfull: It’s Feminism Making Women Miserable? September 1, 2015

quotingquiverfull by an unnamed editor at Ladies Against Feminism – Mercator.Net: The Joys of Parenting in response to a piece at Mercator

Editor’s note: Clearly no one has said that children are making women unhappy, only in the minds of the Ladies Against Feminism.

There are some great conclusions here. One, it’s feminism making women unhappy not children. We can’t have it all. In our arrogance and pride we’ve bought into the idea that we can fill both a man and woman’s roles, sometimes even at the same time, sometimes through delaying our calling and life work of motherhood until we’ve made our way without men.

The reference to ‘production mentality’ of a capitalist society is an assumption I think in error. Socialism makes all into workplace worker bees. Capitalism liberates through entrepreneurship respecting many business models, including cottage industry or home-based productivity which doesn’t divide the family but builds it along with connectivity, which is now missing, in local communities.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
