Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Men are Going to Lust Over Other Women?

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Men are Going to Lust Over Other Women? May 25, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles – How Should Christian Women Respond to Their Men Looking at Other Women?

Editor’s note: Larry’s been rattling on about Chris Matthews being caught on a hot mic admiring Donald Trump’s wife Melania. He posted a link to a long three part series he wrote about how women should respond to the men in their life looking in a sexual manner at other women. Go into Larry’s site and follow the links to the series if for no other reason than to view a series of photographs of men looking at women in the most obvious and creepy way. A cavalcade of creeps. The guys all look like they are preparing to act on their thoughts. Creepy, wrong and so disrespectful to women.

First we look at the reactions he claims that women have to seeing their man look in a lustful manner at other women. Are these reactions really bad? What do you think?

The mothering or jealous reaction

This response could either come from a position of jealousy, or of mothering.

The mothering reaction is not usually from a position of hurt or anger, but is more of a corrective reaction. If this woman is coming from the position of an actual mother with her son, she feels it her duty to keep her Christian sons from lusting after women, and this is the primary reason for her calling out her son’s looking at girls around him.

A Christian wife, can also have this “mothering” reaction. This woman typically does not have hatred for the male nature, and is relatively secure about how her husband feels towards her. She simply feels it her Christian duty as a wife, to keep her husband’s eyes off other women, because she believes for him to take pleasure from looking at any other woman is lust.

But this reaction could also be a jealous reaction. When it is, it is more of a controlling action. This is more of the “I am the only woman you are allowed to look at buster – and you can only look at me when I say so”.

The insecure/hurt reaction

Typically this a reaction from a Christian wife or girlfriend, but it could also come from a Christian daughter.

A Christian daughter might have this reaction, when she sees her Dad look at another woman other than her mother. She thinks – “Does Dad not love mom anymore? Does Dad think mom is not beautiful anymore?” “Is my Dad going to cheat on my mom?”

The Christian girlfriend or wife may have this same hurt reaction toward her boyfriend or fiancé or her husband. She thinks – “Does he not love me anymore? Does he think I am not beautiful anymore?” “Is he going to leave me or cheat on me?”

The Misandrist Reaction (hater of male nature)

This is the angry and disgusted reaction that some women have toward men looking at other women.

The women believe many men are just scum! If men look at other women, they are or will become cheaters. They believe these men see women as simply sex objects for their viewing pleasure, and not as people.
