Quoting Quiverfull: Sexual Assault Victims Caused Their Assaults?

Quoting Quiverfull: Sexual Assault Victims Caused Their Assaults? November 4, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – The Time I Was Never Nearly Raped

Editor’s note: What’s that scripture about our words? Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks? Lori wrote a long blog post trying to rebut someone’s take on a story she told about being on a date in high school and the boy being what we old timers might call a ‘masher’, a guy that tries to push you farther sexually than you are willing to go. That’s the problem with ‘stories’, what might seem like no big deal to you might sound like near rape to someone else, or visa versa. But this paragraph, blaming women for their own assaults is just jaw dropping in it’s evil misogyny. Lori is merely lucky, not righteous, that she wasn’t raped on that date.

We have just as big a problem today it seems with female teasing and promiscuity leading guys on. Guys still need to stop when told “No” but young women who claim to be Christians must stop wearing the skimpy thong bathing suits in front of the young men or a bra-less dress or shirt that the guys can look right down into and see everything, then wonder why the guys are making unwanted sexual advances. Entrapment is illegal for police and it should be illegal for women too. To believe that men must just control themselves no matter how a woman dresses or acts is just plain wrong. Did I lead some of my dates on by my skimpy cheerleading outfits, short shorts, and flirting? I am sure I did, but thank God the guys I dated still had the moral fiber to respect a woman when she said, “Okay, that is enough.” For godly young adults, it is far better to group date and stay away from any dating just to date. Instead, only single date those who are marriage material and godly, and if they make unwanted sexual advances, maybe you need to reconsider if this is the one for you.

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.
