NLQ Question of the Week: Why Does Only a Woman’s Appearance Matter?

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Does Only a Woman’s Appearance Matter? October 20, 2016

QuestionoftheweekThis is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice.

Why is it that every single piece of advice about staying attractive, paying attention to grooming and advice on clothing choices in the Quiverfull world only involve women? This is one of those things that we see in and out of Quiverfull, from presidential candidate Donald Trump making rude remarks about the physical appearance of women while not exactly being very attractive himself. The hardcore male cultural enforcers like Larry Solomon buy into that same mindset and all advice on appearance is given to women, usually by men, the same men that seem to think that taking a shower, grooming those stray wild eyebrow hairs or just being personally tidy does not apply to them?
