I didn’t know there was one! It doesn’t surprise me - a straight boy has very little reason to abandon psycho Christianity. For them it seems like a pretty sweet ride.
Confession: “I dislike the Duggars because they do NOT honor God. They honor themselves and their pride. They are self-righteous and hypocritical. I pray for their children and Josh’s children every day.”
The Duggar family is growing. And I’m not happy about it, because I’m afraid it’s yet another child being exposed to the abusive world of Bill Gothard’s cult. The Duggars recently announced that they are expecting their 20th child sometime next year, and the Internet has exploded with articles and posts. Either people denounced how… Read more »
I may have linked to this in the past, but because more and more I’ve been encountering people insisting that Michelle’s version of blanket training doesn’t involve corporal punishment, I’m linking to it again.
Before they were on TLC, Michelle Duggar was part of an online group, where she advocated using rulers for blanket training. Someone on the FreeJinger forums spoke of her experience.
Years ago, must have been 8 or so, I belonged to a forum called CMOMB (Christian Moms Of Many Blessings). This was before the TLC show, but Michelle was already a well known figure amongst the QFers. She came and did a guest chat and one of the things she talked about was blanket training. She used flexible rulers and talked about luring the baby off of the blanket and then swatting them with the ruler when they took the bait . The purpose was so that mom could visit with friends, have a phone conversation or go visiting and baby would stay put and quiet . After that chat flexible rulers were the thing, but at that time they weren’t at every office supply and warehouse store, so there were lots of posts like “I found them at XYZ for $1.25, how many do you want me to pick up?!” When the TLC specials started airing and the interest in just how exactly they blanket trained babies was heating up I went to try to find a copy of the chat. I found it, but everything about spanking/hitting kids was deleted, as was any reference to Michelle in the flexible ruler threads. They circled the wagons around Michelle pretty fast.
It isn’t Christmas around here without watching the American Dad! Christmas specials. If you have netflix streaming, I recommend checking them out. Don’t let Seth MacFarlane being involved put you off; it’s a great show.

David Waller reminds me of someone but I can’t figure out who. HELP ME.
While it’s bullshit that the Canadian billboard company won’t run these ads - I just always assume Canada is better than everyone - I fail to comprehend how this is less smug, condescending and judgmental than the Christian billboards are. At least the religious ones are good for lulz. Oh well; at least it doesn’t have a stillborn baby labeled as the product of a routine abortion or a before-and-after photo of a meth addict.
Justin Jackson and James
Justin looks really different all of a sudden. Maybe it’s the bowl cut.
