Got a bit nicer today

Sign in to follow this  


After a couple days of it being fornicating cold out it got a bit nicer today.  I got my vehicle washed.  Yeah I know it won't stay clean for very long but she had a layer of dirt that I was getting tired of looking at. 

Meanwhile, several members of my family are on their way to a Caribbean cruise so they'll be in for several days of it being nice and warm.  So I'll be going over to my brother and sister in law's place reguarly over the next week to do some cat/house sitting.  I already got the don't unplug the fridge request this time.  Along with some other requests as well.

      The only optimistic read I can make of the video is that Jessa is in the doubling down phase that often comes before real change (and often lasts years). I think often when people are starting to sense that there may be something not quite right about what they were taught/how they were raised, they go into defense mode and (hopefully) temporarily become even more entrenched as a way of protecting themselves from the excruciating pain of having to change and admit some really hard things about their families, beliefs, or pasts. Of course it's also possible that Jessa has zero inner turmoil and is just happily supporting her brand.

      I can see Jessa going either way, Jill doubled down at first and it took time for her gradually change. I think once the show is over we will see if she starts changing drastically or not. She likes things the way they are just now because they are getting money and a house from Jim Bob and she isn’t struggling the way the family did at times in the early day's.

      YES!  She has a large forehead and her brows are exaggerated, so when she pulls her hair back it's just....not flattering.

      I think she looks the best in that old pic on her blog, with a bob cut just above the shoulders and bangs.  She has a long face and a sharp chin...the looooong hair around it just accentuates it.

      I went and got a pic and I shouldn't have.  I can't stop laughing.  It looks like one of her selfies.

      Tom took Asher to the dentist to get a cavity filled.

      I'm glad he is at least doing this. Tooth pain is so awful. These kids have to have mouths full of rotting teeth.

      Then I wondered - what is Debi's background education that she is writing books about using your brain? When I answered myself, I weeped for fundies who fall for all this shit. Whether from the abusive Pearls or the extreme sheltering Maxwells - what makes fundies jump all in for other fundie's "writings"? There is a lot of fundie talk about discernment - but I don't think any of them know how to use it. 

      Science hostility.  NYT covers it here relative to corona virus, but fundies hate science and scientists because it might call into question the over all excellence of even the most dismal homeschool education (the "well common sense certainly tells you that..." bubble) and science disproves the bible so we can't have that, so you have multiple generations of ignorant people. 

      New York Times op-ed not behind a paywall that lays it out:   The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response  Trump’s response to the pandemic has been haunted by the science denialism of his ultraconservative religious allies.

      The thing is, I actually think it’s nice that some of these fundies have close relationships with their siblings. And I wouldn’t think anything of it if the fundies didn’t do things that are common amongst couples. If a brother got a sister a gift of her favorite chips because everyone’s always eating them, I would think that’s nice. But a brother getting his sister a dozen red roses is strange. If a brother and sister went to just hang out together, I would think nothing of it. But these fundies must call it a date. Why? Just say you hung out with your brother and had fun. It’s the way they do all these things that is strange. But spending time with your siblings and getting them gifts is not weird.

      No, it's not. But, it is the way the frame it. They're so entrenched in someone keeping a girl's heart, and penises being in control that even siblings have to follow that order. And it blurs lines, a whole lot, when the language surrounding sibling relationships - and daddy/daughter relationships - is the language used for romantic love. Seems they can't separate love from in love and it squigs me out.
