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.

Egad, I just read the latest Mom's Corner, it made me depressed.
"One of the greatest examples our family observed of starting to learn self-control at a young age was when our girls were asked to watch two babies about 6 or 7 months old .. When the mommies returned, the babies saw them and both started to cry for their mommies....the mommies said, “No, we won’t take them until they stop crying.” Even at that age with something so simple, these mommies were helping their children learn self-control."
How in the hell can people think that is normal or Godly? The "mommies" have apparently become numb to their own God-given instinct to comfort their crying children. The babies are being taught never to trust or depend on anyone, because even their own "mommies" don't care. No wonder these people are all messed up, if they think this is the way God the Father will treat them. Or do they selfishly expect God the Father to comfort them, but then they refuse to do so for their own babies?
Including in her list of suggested "boundaries" "not asking for things but waiting for them to be offered and given." I bet these people pray and ask God for stuff all the time....if so, they are hypocrites asking God the Father for what they want, but punishing their children for asking for what they want. (and we all know these crap about "helping children to learn self-control" is accompanied by a lot shaming and punishment.
This is so opposite of what Jesus taught about children, he never turned his back on them, or made them stop crying before they could come to him. He said let the little children come to me, and he welcomed them all with open arms.
I was originally going to post this in the M is for Mama thread, but decided I'm actually irritated more generally than with just her.
My insta feed may need some weeding out done. I am so fed up with the "I'm pregnant and I/my husband/BFF must clutch my belly in EVERY photo" pictures. You'd think these women were nothing but mobile uterii on legs. I know every babby is a blessing and I'm being a bit BEC but be a bit more original in your poses! Besides, they're getting close to defrauding Godly Christian Men by the placement of their hands.....
I watched the newest episode. I have to say, I laughed out loud watching Abbie simulate electronic contractions on JD and then coo to him, "Your body was made to do this!"
Jill and Derrick will not go liberal, but at least their kids might at some point.
They are the grandduggars that have the best chance of becoming free and make their own decisions when they are older.

I wear my hair longer than my mother would like I know but I use the excuse that I like to hike and always want it long enough to pull back in a ponytail which I found is cooler in the summer than having short hair and having all of the layers sit on your head..
My requirement when getting my hair cut is that it can still be tied up in a pony tail.12 hours ago, shesinsane said:
To add to Covered by God's Feathers's exhaustive recaps, Anna had a team during Family Game Night: Online Addition. I noticed the teams were narrated as "Jessa and Ben and their team, Joe and Kendra and their team, Anna and her team," and didn't see Jill and Derrick and their team, so I guess we're still pretending Jill and Josh aren't around... which is weird because Anna is all alone yet keeps getting pregnant. 🤔
