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.
You have been warned.

What a ridiculous question.
Ah, it was just a spot of hyperbole as you seem prone to it.
As I said, it is a very slippery slope when it comes to deciding who should or should not have children. We'll be back to eugenics, forced sterilization, and so-called euthenasia of people with disabilities if we are not careful.
I always think it is sad when people think they can judge capacity to consent so accurately over the internet. How do you know Larissa made a unilateral decision? How can you possibly judge Ian's capabilities from where you sit on your high horse?
Competency and capacity to consent are incredibly complex and controversial issues. That's why they are both medical and legal issues. Also be glad that they are taken so seriously. You don't want your rights taken away from you if you ever have a brain injury, believe me.
I'm done with this discussion, Koala. Deliberate obtuseness irritates me. So do people who sit in judgement over things they obviously don't understand.
I truly wish the best for Ian, Larissa, and Little Deitrich. Along with the other challenges the family faces, they are going to find an awful lot of Koalas sitting in judgement.1
Seriously, i don't get what's wrong with theese people. If I went todo a march to fight what if was sure it'si a mass killing, I would not be taking happy selfies. They do not give a fuck about it0

And the precious Scripture booklets probably tell the recipients that their relatives who have passed on who didn't believe in Jesus in the right way are burning in a lake of fire in eternal torment.
Does he think Rodrick's uncle is in hell too?0

"According to man's law". I know he means people and not the male gender but it's 'man's law' -as in men - who are chipping away at Roe vs. Wade. Trump signing that executive order surrounded by men and not one woman. It's infuriating.0
Comment by Jennifer:
"You allocuted to Criminal Sexual Conduct - Third Degree. That means either you used force to overpower your victim or your victim was too incapacitated to give consent.
Which one was it?"
Infuriating for the victim that he's whitewashed his crime publicly and gets away with it from his family/friends. NOT surprising, just so maddening.0
