Scroll down past photos of the ugly baby to the "Women in the Military" article off our old friend "Ladies Against Feminism". She actually posted my comment. I'm impressed.

Come to think of it, I've got a worse mouth than the people I know in the Army.

And where does she get that it's not the women's jobs to defend the country? I seem to recall women being archers way back when...and if push comes to shove, I can't believe women in castles would just faint and weep. You had to be a hell of a lot tougher to survive back then.

Oh no! Not at all! Look at the pictures of ladies on the web site. That's what these manipulative cows really think women have historically been like!

This is why many of them think the "Little House" books are "too feminist", because they're honest about how hard those women had to work to survive. I still think this is a conscious plot to be perpetual little girls who never have to risk anything or do anything hard.

Yup. Click the "Christian Taliban" tag to read about the Prairie Muffins.

Kind of makes a person wonder how these "lily maidens" were raised. If their parents were fundamentalist helicopter parents, then the parents would have a vested interest in keeping the kids emotionally dependent.

while my grandmother never went hunting with the men, I know damn well she knew how to point the business end of a gun in the right direction. And I know she at least knew how to fish, if push came to shove. I think the author of that blog is interested in how women of a certain social class lived. I can guarantee a Minnesota farm wife's life wasn't all that protected and genteel.

Pazuzusanna is evil. History:

I started out liking Candy of http://myblessedhome.blogspot.com . However her rampant Jack Chick-informed Catholic bashing turned me off of her, and now she's just going crazy. I found a blog that countered her called http://candyisaliar.blogspot.com. They also encountered the Anderson Family because they were astounded at how much HATRED Pazuzusanna has for, well, everybody. She's the best press for the devil in a long, long time.

If you click the tag for "wedding" in her blog, the story of her courtship is WTF inducing.

Bzuh?

Jeez, judgment-a-minute there. OMG, they didn't look like I wanted them to look when they went to church! Bet they aren't Christian! OMG, they did a kid thing on my wall, and then they TRIED TO CLEAN IT UP OH NOES. OMG, they changed their oil in their own driveway! Why couldn't they go dirty up someone else's driveway so my delicate eyes wouldn't have to see it?

This woman is horrible.

Has anyone else noticed that "MCW" managed to stay in the Navy for 9 years? She didn't mention why that was the case.

And I loved your comment, particularly the bit about church attendance.

Pardon My Random Observations
This squicks me to no end. The fact that her husband the pastor has no college degree but has read the Bible and has over 100 chapters memorized troubles me and tells me he's really qualified to lead a flock of people. At least they're all like-minded.

The blog title cracks me up. What about five kids makes it a BIG family? I grew up with kids who had at least a dozen siblings.

Also, I liked your comment!

Since I'm sick already (physically, that is), I decided what the hey to read some of her other manifesto posts. And they got me to thinking something I don't recall saying before: Fundamentalists are essentially pessimistic about EVERYTHING that happens on this earth (unless they're talking about their own godly behaviour). And it's really sad to think that people can and do go through life like this. Not that it's much of one.

Then there's the whole anti-strong woman thing. Now I can understand anti-military (war and fighting) and anti-police (crime and violence) but anti-firefighter - because, oh noes, God forbid (ha!) that women be able and strong enough to save men, not to mention other women and children. No, no, no, no, NO! Only men can save (just as only as a male God can save, yadda, yadda). And girls and women should just sit back and let men save them. Unless, of course, there aren't enough men and the girls and women actually get hurt or die. But that's okay, 'cuz they'll be off this evil earth and with God.

Spare me the continued doctrine of female helplessness.

Self-reliance and responsibility are scary things, indeed.

Ah, how refreshing.

Good God.

I like how the men are conveniently held NOT accountable for all the sexual shenanigans. Which do go on, I admit.

I find that women have our place in the military. I like to think that many of the women I have worked with bring some sanity to things. I think being a mother makes me a better soldier - not that it doesn't tear my heart out to be away from my child for this long, and I'm not playing the game much longer.

Why are these women so threatened? Honestly, if you want to stay home with your kids, I don't give a flying fuck. But I'm not going to do it. I treasure my time with my daughter, but I need an adult life that doesn't revolve around her. Somehow, I don't think being a SAHM would have saved my marriage.

I'm proud to be part of this "social experiment".
