RIP Arete

It grieves us to share that long time poster and helpmeet @Arete has passed due to complications from cancer. Arete joined FJ in 2012 and described herself as "I'm in my early 40s, live in the Northeast US, and work as an ebil scientist. Born and raised Greek Orthodox Christian, and still am, got to have my smells and bells in congregational prayer. Politically liberal." She was glad to provide information about her church, her experiences in gardening, and her Greek family traditions.

New Community Blog

We have quite a few members interested in coloring.  After making my own (essentially) coloring blog, I decided to see if our resident colorists would like a community blog where everyone can post their projects, share tips and tricks, ask for opinions on works-in-progress or just ask for help.   The folks I talked to were receptive so the blog FJ Colorists Unite was created. If you would like to become a member of the FJ Colorists group so you can post on the new community blog, shoot me a PM

The IBLP Lawsuit

If you have spent any time on Free Jinger, you will likely recognize the acronyms ATI and IBLP.  This is the fundamentalist ministry created by Bill Gothard, an unmarried man who  believes such things as:  There has long been talk about both Bill Gothard and his brother committing acts of sexual misconduct with female employees and interns.  As long ago as 1980, Gothard admitted to "moral failures" with some of the staff.   We at FJ have long awaited some kind of action to be taken against thi

Have you tried our new mobile experience?

As many of you already know, our previous mobile site was....unpleasant at best.   I personally never used it, but rather suffered through adjusting the full site and doing a lot of scrolling when I wanted to read something on FJ on the rare times I needed to access it from a mobile device. Today, on the way to my weekly dr. appointment, I decided to give the new mobile site a look.   I have to say I'm really impressed with the new mobile experience.   Not only did I never have to adjust the si

We survived week one!

So we all survived our first week on the new platform!   The transition has been smoother than I expected and the overall feedback has been quite positive. We tested the software for about a month before we put it on the live site, but no matter how much you test it's different once you have hundreds or thousands of unique users, so we do have a few outstanding bugs that are being worked on. * Some posts have gibberish characters in them * Some profiles are not working properly (or at all) *

FJ Bible Study: Ephesians 5:21

I will start by saying I have never been overly interested in a deep study of the Bible.   Free Jinger has given me a new perspective on this, as I have watched members go toe to toe with various fundies proof text for proof text.  For those that don't know what a "proof text" is:   It is pretty amazing to watch some of our members who are either self-described non-Christians or considered non-Christian/the "wrong kind" of Christian know more about the Bible than people who su

Do Biblical Submission Blogs Have a Responsibility to Address the "Exceptions?"

Anyone who has read Free Jinger will know that one of our favorite blogs to discuss is Always Learning written by Lori Alexander. Lori claims that God has called her to be a "wise older mentor" to younger women. Her husband, Ken Alexander, has claimed that Lori has a "prophetic gift." Even though her blog is meant to be the teaching tool of a "wise older woman mentoring younger women" (which lately she reminds readers on a near-daily basis), Ken can often be found answering questions in the

Welcome   If you aren't one that goes directly to the forum normally, you may have noticed the "main page" here going through various states of transformation recently.  It is still very much a work in progress and will probably continue to change for a little while yet, when my husband suggested the main page looked like "something from the 90's," I decided that change was absolutely in order.

      Two actors who made an impact on my life passed away today. RIP Carroll Spinney, who portrayed Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch for over 45 years on "Sesame Street". And RIP to Rene Auberjonois, a wonderful actor who played many memorable roles, my favorite was Odo on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine".
      I never got to meet Mr. Spinney, but had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Auberjonois several times, including on the Star Trek cruises for the last two years. I wondered why he wasn't scheduled for the 2020 cruise, it turned out he had metastatic lung cancer.

      My partner of 7.5 years blindsided me two weeks ago by moving out while I was at work... There were problems, yes, but I thought we would be working them out. After moving out, he said “we have to go to couples therapy” and he said he’d give me a chance to fix things. After we saw a therapist (mine) for couples therapy resources, he told me “send me the resources she emails you for couples therapy” and cut off all contact. He told a third party that texted him the location and time of the couples therapy appt “I appreciate that she made the appt but I won’t be coming and there’s no need to reschedule”
      People have told me to give him time and I’m seeing the therapists but the complete cut off of communication scares me. 
      I’ve been devastated and can barely function each day. My boss (who’s evil) even asked if I’m getting therapy from all of the mistakes I’ve made. On top of this, I have to study for two licensing exams. It’s horrible...
