Now I do not know for sure that Darla Shine is actually Quiverfull or just another borderline Evangelical. She is White House Communications Chief and former Fox News co-president Bill Shine’s wife. Shine is in the news today because Mediaite wrote about her awful tweets. Many are racist, and most echo the unlovely sentiments tweeted by our president Donald Trump. But that is not what caught my eye, it was her blog – Darla Shine’s Happy Housewives Club. Looking through her site all I could think is to wonder why Quiverfull enforcers have maids and order everyone to stay home and clean.
Apparently Darla wrote a book about her journey into becoming a happy housewife and deciding to promote it as the only way over ten years ago. Just like Debi Pearl, Nancy Campbell, Lori Alexander and a million others. Find a way that works for you and push it on everyone else.
What is interesting about Shine’s site is a couple of things. First, she is dressed in a way that most of the other cultural enforcers would decry, sweetheart top with no shoulders and sleeves, fake tanned, blowout professionally coiffed. Nothing modest here. Also nothing that can be easily perfectly maintained without household staff.
Plus all the images shown on the site are of airbrushed illustrations that are more reminescent of the 1950s Playboy artist LeRoy Neiman than real life.
The second thing is that while there is no overt mention of religous beliefs is that it is pure Evangelical Female Cultural Enforcer, right down to the no paragraph blocks of rambling text.
Take a small gander:
Hard to screen cap that huge wall of text. The unquoted parts include the usual demonization and lies about feminism and feminists.
Here’s the thing. Working outside of the house is fine. So is staying home. So is doing all your own housework. So is bringing in household staff. None of that is a moral or religious choice. It’s all strictly personal.
What I find offensive with this bunch is their insistence on own their way being the ‘right’ and ‘Godly’ way.
Most of her tweets seem to indicate that Darla Shine is just a richer version of white supremacy shill and mommy blogger begging for money Ayla Stewart.
As we get more of these women and men connected to the current administration with these toxic ties to Quiverfull beliefs I’ll be posting them here. The hypocracy is breathtaking.
