Random Thoughts on Lori’s Notebook Posting

This is loaded.

  1. Dad deprived children can also happen when dad is physically in the house but emotionally unavailable. Or when he is working so hard to be the provider, 80 hour weeks, multiple jobs, etc, that he sees his kids rarely. He means well, but the kids are still deprived.
  2. There really isn’t that much of a risk to dying in childbirth anymore. You can’t compare that to the risk of men dying in war. And childbirth is something nearly all women will go through, especially back in the “days of old” as compared to war which depends greatly upon if you were a a young man during a bad point in world affairs. In other words, something most women will go through vs. something some men will go through.
  3. The woman’s movement can be seen in another way–it helped women be financially independent so they didn’t have to settle for a man they weren’t attracted to for security. The reason why it seems like in the “days of old” that women weren’t as picky or married lower ranking males more often is because they HAD to for financial and social reasons. Everyone loves to pile onto the unmarried 40ish career woman, but hey she is doing men a lot of favors be staying single.  She isn’t wasting a man’s time or money by settling for security.
  4. It “sole breadwinner” not “soul breadwinner”. Teachers these days…..
  5. If feminism stole anything then the so called stronger sex need to find their balls and take back what belongs to them and stop whining like kids on the playground, “She stole my ball”.
  6. Options for women and men are the best way to tell if someone is making a truly moral choice. Once women multiple children, with no education or job skills, they really are stuck in their marriage. When times get tough, such in the case of Anna Duggar, its easy to write romantically about what a godly, moral woman she is for staying. BUT if she or any other woman had the choice to leave knowing that her kids would be fully provided for and she would not be outcasted by all her friends and family, would they make another choice? I am not saying that other choice is good or better, but you can’t put people on a pedestal claiming they are so moral (or committed) when they don’t have the option to choose to not to be moral (or committed).

  1. On the death in childbirth point–yeah that is something to think about.
    I read that at a min. kids should be spaced 1.5 years apart to give body a chance to heal and it lowers pre term labor, but ideally 2-3 years is best.

  2. I see now the man who disagreed with her and her correcting. How typical. He was smart though in that he covered his disagreement with enough praise that in the end she just ends up saying “Thanks”! I’ve seen this on her blog often enough. Where a man will disagree and she will point him to some bible verse that she thinks proves her right. Him being a man, shouldn’t she just cower over and go with whatever he says–afterall he has the authority.

  3. The combination of no contraception, a heavy sense of wifely sexual “duty” and wifely obedience creates all sorts of dangerous medical possibilities.

    Yes and no. For the average woman with 1.88 kids, no, but when it’s a woman who is rolling the dice a lot more often than that, there’s a lot more to be concerned about, especially in religious groups where women are not supposed to use contraception.

    ” BUT if she or any other woman had the choice to leave knowing that her kids would be fully provided for and she would not be outcasted by all her friends and family, would they make another choice?

    Right.

  5. Thank you for writing this! Lori is a piss-poor writer with no idea how the real world works. She has no idea how to interpret the Bible and correctly apply it to life.
    I also wonder if you’ve noticed how much she’s been trying to teach men recently. On this post, a man commented to disagree with her interpretation of scripture, and she corrected him!
