Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits?

Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits? March 20, 2017

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – What Makes a Woman Feminine?

Editor’s note: Skipping a lot of quotes from the various Biblical commentaries that Lori used to justify her own thoughts on the subject. But here’s the rub, there are women in the workforce out there that do fit the Biblical model of meek and quiet spirit, that go about their day peacefully blessing everyone they encounter. Why should the belief that men and women are equal automatically translate to loud boisterous behavior? It doesn’t. This is another assumption by those outside of the workforce, like Lori.

Do wearing dresses, skirts, high heels, and long hair make a woman feminine? Many dresses and skirts are a lot more feminine than pants and shorts but are these what make a woman feminine? No. According to God’s Word it has nothing to do with our outward appearance and everything to do with our behavior. 

Feminism has stolen the meek and quiet spirited women, even in the Church. Our culture spends a lot more time encouraging us to adorn our fading exterior rather than our eternal interior. As godly women, we must care a whole lot more about our inward beauty rather than our outward beauty. The Apostle Paul even encourages this of wives in order to win their disobedient husbands. Yes, most men enjoy their wives looking feminine but what they enjoy even more is having a wife who is gentle, kind, and loving.

Stephen Martin wrote this on my Facebook page yesterday: “A woman who is this way has a strong effect on the masculine spirit of a man. The masculine energy is aggressive and problem solving. It fights opposing masculine energy. But it receives and loves a feminine, cooperative energy. Furthermore, the feminine energy has the ability to subdue the aggression of the masculine. The more aggressive a man is, the more emotional. When the woman allows herself to be subdued, that aggressive energy in the man switches from combat to immense love for the woman.”

It’s kind of funny and revealing in a sick sort of a way that Lori always finds some male commenter to agree with her words. I would think that the appeal of another woman might be better for her to repost than these borderline Red Pill jockeys she quotes all the time.

    Shorter Nancy: “Gender essentialism is true, and I know because misogynists tell me that feminists who don’t fit my arbitrary definition of feminine make their balls retract. Also, they remind me that I’m a special special princess unlike those other nasty women.”

    ‘It’s kind of funny and revealing in a sick sort of a way that Lori always finds some male commenter to agree with her words.’ Lori certainly seems to enjoy male attention. One might speculate that she’s not as content with her husband as she claims, perhaps having what the extreme purity crowd might think of as emotional affairs.

    Lori must love nuns and sisters, then. There are as many Bible verses about women remaining single as the need for marriage – doubly so you ignore the fact that the early Church thought Jesus’ return was going to happen next week Tuesday soon – and I’ve known plenty of sisters who were about as meek and quiet-spirited (as Lori defines it) as a Mack truck.

    My favorite group were the “Nuns on a Bus” who followed Paul Ryan around during the 2012 campaign season when he was both touting his Catholic street cred and promoting a budget that ignored the ideas of Social Justice to point out that disconnect. I think that’s every politician’s worst nightmare – being followed by an engaged, motivated, well-spoken, educated and calm group of women who were always clear that they wanted the best for Paul Ryan as a person – but his ideal budget was incompatible with the government’s duty to preferentially protect the poor and disadvantaged and they were going to make sure everyone knew that.

    Seriously, Lori, you need to go out and actually meet some working women. Do you really think any workplace can survive if every single woman working there is a militant, bra-burning feminist who shouts it at the top of her lungs 24/7? This might come as a shock to you, but most working women are actually doing their jobs. Sometimes they may need to be loud and “aggressive” in order to get said job done. Never mind the generations of social conditioning that made outspoken women such an anomaly in the first place.

    “As godly women, we must care a whole lot more about our inward beauty rather than our outward beauty”

    Says the woman who tells other women how to dress and how to maintain themselves. (One of her replies to a comment on the infamous yoga pants post said a wife has to be careful of her looks even in her own home, in case she has to answer the door. Because apparently you wouldn’t want the UPS (wo)man thinking you don’t care enough about your husband to look perfect 24/!)

    I have no doubt she has little to no respect for Ken. The glee in which she describes sabotaging her diaphragm to get pregnant shows she didn’t give a damn about his role in planning a family, when she gave her word that she mutually agreed to not have anymore children.

  • Anonyme

    I think you mean Lori…but they all seem like clones of each other after a while. :p

  • Nea

    Seriously, they’re all the same.

  • Friend

    And he would have stood a chance of detecting sabotage how? Was he on Diaphragm Watch every night?

  • Nightshade

    Didn’t she say something about women shouldn’t be dressing to be comfortable, claiming it was selfish or some such bullshit?

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    She said something along those lines here —-> https://thetransformedwife.com/yoga-pants-a-new-kind-of-modern-vanity/

    Shorter Lori: “Why can’t everybody just agree with me and shut up about wanting to be treated like a human?”

  • Nightshade

    That’s the one I was thinking of! Thanks for digging around in that swamp so I didn’t have to! 🙂

  • katiehippie

    She’s fighting straw feminists again, I see.

  • I guess Ethyl Merman is burning in hell right now. But then, I wonder if Anita Bryant will end up there, too? She sang some big loud show tunes which is how I learned about who Ethyl Merman was, so I wonder if she gets any warm fuzzy grace points for her anti-homosexual activism. And I’m probably in trouble because in public school, when we visited the County Home and danced and stuff, I sang God Bless America a couple of years in a row — in the style of Ethyl Merman. I guess that we could blame that on public school.

  • Also, I don’t recall the Bible saying anything about masculine and feminine “spirit” and “energy”, so pardon me if for the moment, I think Mr Martin just made that up.
