Re: I May Throw Up...

To me, this is just further evidence of the infantile way these men see women. Do some women behave like children? Yes. So do some men. Do all women need to take a fast from social media to reduce negative feelings? Maybe. I regulate how I use social media all the time. It's called being a grown up.

Re: Secular Knowledge

Tell you what I find incredibly secular. Gender roles and gender essentialism that are lifted right out of Fox News (not to mention the Handmaid's Tale). That's mixing secular views with religion.

Re: I May Throw Up...

Here were my ruminations on the social media fast, which incidentally I only found out about via Twitter, so take that for what it's worth! https://wheatandtares.org/2018/10/09/ru ... men-girls/

Re: Single Women: You have Priesthood Authority in Your Home

I called this one eons ago. It's the Dorothy Defense for female ordination. At the end of Wizard of Oz, Glenda tells her to just click her heels together three times while saying "There's no place like home," telling her "But Dorothy! You've had the power all along!" It's probably also a form of gas...

Re: SL Tribune: Church not handling sexual assault well for missionaries

Perhaps the bigger failing was how this was handled after the fact. As a church (as the organization, the individual members, and the culture) we have much baggage with sexual assualt. Agreed about the baggage associated with sexual assault. Here are a few failings I saw in the story she shared: 1)...

Re: SL Tribune: Church not handling sexual assault well for missionaries

I have a lot of opinions on this. First of all, let me just say that when I was a missionary, I was as guilty as anyone for being cavalier about my safety or thinking I would be protected. I think part of that is just being young, feeling invincible. Young people often feel they are safer than they ...

Can Women Matter?

What a great post by Kristine: https://bycommonconsent.com/2018/08/28/can-women-matter/ My comment: Very insightful and helpful post. I’ve said before that Mormon men are individually and on the whole less sexist than most of their non-LDS counterparts I’ve met–in terms of things like listening to w...

Church This Week

So church yesterday was a mixed bag. Sac Mtg had three talks all on the Proclamation. The worst of these was the High Council speaker who erroneously claimed that the Word of Wisdom was advice that nobody else at the time was doing (hello, Seventh Day Adventists and Kellogg!) and that it took medica...

Re: YW and free babysitting

I think there can also be this entitlement mind set when it comes to certain things: "I have followed the church's counsel to attend the temple/have too many kids too young/forego a dual income so "the church" owes me this kind of free support to make it all work." That's not far removed from "I'm r...
