Quoting Quiverfull: Be a REAL Lady?

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a REAL Lady? September 2, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Elizabeth Elliot as quoted by A Lovely Calling – Being a Lady

Editor’s note: The absolutely hysterical thing about this particular quote is that the blogger quoting this narrow shaming/blaming quote on lady-likeness is violating most of it in a very silly looking selfie photograph at the original posting. No one can dictate what are and are not the ‘right’ characteristics for a woman to possess. Every single woman is different, no matter what Quiverfull female enforcers try to say!

“To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle, she is gracious, she is godly and she is giving. You and I have the gift of femininity… the more womanly we are, the more manly men will be and the more God is glorified. Be women, be only women, be real women in obedience to God.”

― Elisabeth Elliot

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.
