Guess I'll begin!

I'm a 20 year old college student originally from Pennsylvania but I go to school in the Deep South, y'all! I was raised Catholic but personally cut ties with the faith when I was a sophomore in high school and officially/publicly when I turned 18. Since then I've come into my own as a moderately left-leaning agnostic and am quite comfortable with myself! :)

As most of us were, I was aware of the Duggars and 19KaC but never really watched the show or paid attention to the family until the Joshley scandals. I found FJ through some news sites and have been learning so much about our fundie friends ever since! 

I follow a good portion of the families (JRod, Duggars, Bateseseses, Lorken, Schupes, Arndts) but have read most of the topics on the other smaller families and individuals. Honestly it's really opened my eyes to how poisonous and insidious this movement is...hearing about what these people (especially the kids) go through is heartbreaking. However, I hope that they'll see the light and escape to find their own happiness one day!

I probably won't post too much, but seeing as I've been lurking for nearly a year now (!!!!!!!!) it seemed like a good time to at least say hello!

Hi, I am a 35 year old mom of human kids and one fur kid. I have lived in the South, Midwest, Europe, New England, PNW and New England, I love Harry Potter, Doctor Who, fitness (yoga and CrossFit) I like to run too, but not quite as much. 

That is just some random stuff. Zsu/PP and the Nauglers were my big draw here, but I am doubly excited about being able to share my coloring love with people.

Guess I'll start here.

Hi, I'm an almost-30 year old from the Midwest. Not married but in a long term relationship with a wonderful man, no children, two cats and one dog, adjunct professor at a local college. I was brought up as an Evangelical Christian but I converted to Judaism a few years ago and I'm very happy with that. I have a master's degree in humanities with emphasis on women's studies (among other things). 

I'm here because I've been lurking on and off for quite some time, and I finally got got the nerve to join. So, here I am! :)

Hello! I'll introduce myself. I'm 26 and unmarried. No pressure from my family just the women at my work, which gets rather annoying. I've been reading here for a while and decided to join. I hope to get insight into the fundie world and hopefully learn.

I'm so glad this site exists. I was kind of obsessed with fundies in my teens, and now my interest in them is returning.

I'm a 23 yr old from Florida and I'm still figuring out what I want to do and how to do stuff.

Hi! I'm a long time lurker, with an inactive account from ages ago. I think snarky thoughts, and follow most of the major families. I don't know why I hesitate to post, except that I was really taken in by "Razing Ruth" and pretty embarrassed about it.

I'm religiously Christian and am useful because I understand the jargon.

Hi everybody!

Thought I should probably introduce myself! A few things about me: I'm the oldest child of seven, own a llama and chickens, was home schooled from preschool-high school, teach dance and violin, and am going to college currently. I've been following the Duggars and other fundie families for years now. Several years ago I came across FJ when I was searching for something about the Wissmans, and was intrigued by what I found here. Since then I've lurked around on FJ whenever something big happened in the Duggar and Bates families. I'm excited to be a part of the FJ community!

I've been lurking for awhile (probably a year or so here - whenever Josh Duggar's grossness was exposed) but remember reading about the Duggars on Television Without Pity ages ago.  I was glad to find this site with the death of that one!  

I'm currently an atheist/collapsed Catholic, former true believer raised in a strict Catholic household, and for various reasons feel like my religion messed me up terribly, but I am eternally grateful I was not raised fundie.  I thank my very religious mother all the time for not taking us down that road.  I am fascinated by the people and things discussed here, in way that isn't too personal, so it allows me to work out some of my own issues and gain perspective on the matter without getting too upset.

I mainly read the Duggar board (have never seen an episode or even a clip, but read everything I can) and about the Nauglers, but skim many of the threads and enjoy so many of your thoughts and opinions.  I am not sure how much posting I will actually do, but I wanted to say hello :)

I'm a 45 year old former school teacher and Baptist pastor's wife.  We have 2 teenagers. I think Lori and the Duggars give Christians a bad name and are an embarrassment.  I don't drink or smoke. I'm pro life and own a gun. I just don't believe in child abuse or that being submissive as a wife means I have no voice  And yes, I work outside the home.

Hi everyone!  Long-time lurker, first time poster.  I started watching the Duggars a couple years ago...I disagree with them in every way yet they were/are so fascinating.  I found this website and am thrilled there are so many like-minded people out there :)

I'm in law school, a feminist, a Democrat, an ebil Catholic, a fan of rock music, and have a boyfriend who I go on dates with without a chaperone.  Everything fundies despise!
