  • FOCUSING ON THE FLAWS OF FUNDAMENTALISM SINCE 2005

     

    Welcome to Free Jinger. Before you dive in, here is a little bit about what this site is all about.

    Free Jinger is a free speech zone. We do not moderate based on anything other than hate speech. If you don’t like what someone is saying, challenge them. We prize logic and reason here, as well as thoughtful debate. We do not believe in deleting content, except in very rare situations. In other words, the internet is forever, so think before you post.

    If you found us from a Google search of "Duggars", you should know this is not a Duggar fan site. So what specifically is discussed here at Free Jinger? The main forum is Quiverfull of Snark. Primarily Free Jinger is used to discuss the ways of extremists and fundamentalists, mainly religious fundamentalists, and the impact that has on our society. We also have quite a snarky side. Sometimes the discussion is very serious, sometimes it is humorous. The discussions can get quite heated, and may even border on venting so please, no grammar or punctuation policing. 'Text speak' is not allowed. If topics religious, feminist, or reproductive will harm your psyche, consider carefully before you wade in.

    On this site we also have forums to discuss misogyny and other issues going on in the world. And for when you're in a lighter mood, there are a few fun forums for discussing entertainment and hobbies.

    If your viewpoint tends to the “traditional,” you don’t need to leave – in fact, you are welcome, because otherwise we’re just a bunch of hens agreeing with each other – but you do need a nice thick hide and the intellectual ability to defend your thinking. “Because Mama and Jesus told me so” is not good enough.

    Please read our Guidelines, Terms of Use (ToU), and Welcome New Members pages.

    You have been warned.

    Welcome :D

      I don't remember them discussing any protocol but Jeremy did say that he asked JB if he could get to know Jinger in early Dec. 2015.  I just can't imagine a guy asking my dad if he could talk to me.

      I can imagine my reaction if a guy asked my dad for permission to talk to me. If he did not have the guts to talk to me directly i would not have talked to him. If he thought i would talk to him just because my dad likes him, without thinking about my opinion, i would not have talked to him. I appreciate my dad's opinion, but he never would have liked to be my door to the world. 

      I can imagine my dad's reaction to such sort of guy. A guy who asked my dad for permission to get to know me would never ever have got his permission. Because my dad considers bis daughter as an independant woman with her own mind.

      @MamaJunebug,  I remember those old belts and pads you had to hitch up!  They were so uncomfortable.  I remember getting my period (not for the first time though) at the Beta Club state convention in Columbia.  I had to go to the drug store and by that time they'd come out with Stayfree.  I was eternally grateful to not have to deal with a belt.

      When we girls or my mom had our periods, the dogs liked to knock over the kitchen or bathroom  trash and snack on bloody Kotex.  My sister and I had many days when we'd have to clean up in front of the door before my brothers came inside.  Good times, I tell you!

       

      What do you mean a belt? I'm confused.

      She did ask.fm questions a day or so ago that showed on twitter.  Her male roll model is har Pastor.  I may have been surprised she didn't take this opportunity to remind everyone of her Peruvian father.

      My mom wasn't mean about she was just very uncomfortable when my period started at 11 she handed me a book on puberty and a box that was combo tampons and pads and said "um I think there's directions in the box." and that was that lol the book was very informative and accurate and the box did have directions so I mean she did the best she could haha.

      Turmeric is anti-inflammatory. It has proven benefits to people with arthritis. It has proven some effect as a component in cancer prevention, I don't know about treatment though. 

      But yeah, don't try to treat serious illness with spices and don't market treatments and cures if you are not a trained professional and have the knowledge to read original studies and/or access to carry out you'r own peer-reviewed scientificcally sound studies!
