    LDS/Mormon Fashion Bloggers

    @Witherwings asked about Mormon fashion bloggers in another thread. Some examples of blogs are: Barefoot Blonde, Pink Peonies.... In its corner of the internet, Mormon modest fashion blogging is huge, as are sites that sell LDS standard approved fashion. Here's a place to discuss the phenomenon.
  2. So - my path to this particular subject is courtesy Out Daughtered and Sweet Home Sextuplets. The Busby's have both Instagram and Youtube channels. The other family has Instagram. And Google then takes my looking at these and starts suggesting youtube videos for five.two.love. FIve.Two.Love - five is for quintuplets. two if for the two older boys. I like this family but dad has decided to make a living from youtube vlogging (at least until Youtube puts and end to this - which from all families seems to be an ongoing issue as far as content to keep them where they are and not
  3. Ron Lafferty died in prison from natural causes. He was on death row for the murder of his sister-in-law Brenda and niece Erica. The murders were detailed in Jon Krakauer's book Under the Banner of Heaven. Lafferty was due to face a firing squad sometime next year. https://news.yahoo.com/utah-death-row-inmate-featured-172237286.html
  4. [TW childhood sexual abuse] I just listened to last Friday's episode of The Daily podcast by the New York Times. It's called "Confronting a Childhood Abuser." Link: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/24/podcasts/the-daily/sex-abuse-sundance.html The survivor was abused by Sterling Van Wagenen, the founder of Sundance Film Festival and a well-known figure in the Mormon church. The abuse was handled within the church, as is often the case, but survivor Sean Escobar came forward with his story through a Mormon abuse whistle-blower website. It was a fascinating, raw story. I was absolutely
  5. Sam Young, the man who started the Protect LDS Children movement, will most likely be excommunicated from the Mormon church today (Sunday September 9th) At the very least, he will be disclipined, unable to take the sacrement, go to the temple, etc. People are polarized, with many supporting him in his wish for LDS bishops to stop asking tweens sexual questions behind closed doors without parental supervision, while others think he is stirring the shitpot. Others are upset that he will receive church disclipine or be removed completely fromthe church for bringing these issues to light, whi
  6. I'm always looking for a good book by former members of the FLDS and other groups of Fundamental Mormonism, and it seems like I'm always missing some. So I thought, with the help of fellow FJers, we could compile a list? I'll start with all the ones I know, then I'd love for others to have a running list, especially as new books are released. Escape - Carolyn Jessop Stolen Innocence: My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamist Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride, and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs - Elissa Wall Lost Boy - Brent W. Jeffs Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Viol
  7. USA Today <snip> <snip> I had no idea participating in Boy Scouts was such a significant part of growing up in the Mormon faith for boys. I don't believe for a second that this has nothing to do with Boy Scouts choosing to embrace LGBTQ+ youth.
  8. If you were anything like me as a teen or tween (i.e., a chronically uncool and sheltered), then you probably read "Go Ask Alice," the diary of an anonymous teen girl in the 1960s who spiraled into sex, drugs, and rock and roll, and then died shortly after writing the final entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_Ask_Alice However, it's quite clear now that "Alice" never existed, and the entire story was concocted by Beatrice Sparks, a Mormon youth counselor, who made a cottage industry of "finding" diaries written by wayward teenagers and publishing them, ostensibly as scared straig
  9. I just finished the novel The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff this past weekend, which was a really well researched story of an escapee from a fundamentalist Mormon cult returning to his home to help solve a murder case. The book also includes somewhat fictionalized passages written from the perspective of Ann Eliza Young, the 19th Wife of Brigham Young. Reading this book prompted me to look up the real Ann Eliza, who actually left Mormonism and divorced Brigham Young very publicly in the 1870s, and wrote a book called Wife no. 19, the Story of a Life in Bondage. I realized the book was fre
  10. From Deseret News. This family seems to have planned out things well. Reading this article made me wonder if any non-Mormon fundies would try something like. I wonder if John Schrader or David Rodrigues would get a begging bowl for a boat. http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865658005/Mormon-family-raises-children-on-boat-in-the-Caribbean.html?pg=all
  11. So I went to see the Book of Mormon the other day. Besides the fact that it is hilariously funny. It skewers fundie mission trips, the origin story for Mormonism and the white savior complex. It was interesting to see it after spending so much time on here snarking on the fundies that go to countries in desperate need of medicine/educational programs and instead decide what the locals really need is Jesus.
  12. I realize that this is pretty lengthy and time-consuming, but I decided to post it anyway, because it is really interesting and worth watching. I am not a fan of the show, but Benji Schwimmer apparently was the winner of one of the early seasons of SYTYCD. He is an openly gay dancer/choreographer, and in the following videos, he shares his perspective as a gay man who grew up in the LDS church. We talk a lot about how fundies might be treated if they came out as lgbt, or how their family and church would react...he answers pretty much all of the questions that come with the territory of ultra-
  13. My oldest friend, who is a devout Mormon, just shared this. Her son helped teach Prince Ata while on his mission to Tonga. She's very proud because converting this guy is apparently a big deal. Not breaking link because it's a news site. http://www.nzkanivapacific.co.nz/2015/0 ... PXsKPnF9q0
  14. This website has been doing this 30 Days of Love Challenge thing leading up to Valentine's Day. Every day you're supposed to do a prescribed date/event for your "sweetie." Today's "date" just takes the cake. It's a date pairing Little Caesar's pizza with lingerie. Because nothing says sexy like a $5 pizza.

  17. Kate Kelly, the leader of the Ordain Women movement and John Dellin are facing possible excommunication from the Mormon/LDS church. I had a feeling the leaders would eventually do this at some point. Not breaking since it is the New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/12/us/tw ... .html?_r=1
  18. You can't buy tampons in Brazil and you can't say tampon if you're Mormon, apparently. Pretty sure she's talking about tampons though.
  19. So I have finally been visited by Mormon missionaries- one from Texas and one from Utah. They seemed nice, and they seemed so shocked when I know the name of their founder and when I told them I was a gasp! agnostic. I wished I had the nerve to ask them why they believe that gold plates found in the US are credible :shrug:. Can the Hive Vagina suggest me questions I can ask them if they ever come a'calling again?
  20. The forum is named 'Mormons - Mormonism' the church is called Later Day Saints or LDS for short.You do not call the any other religious group by a slang name.
  21. The LDS has now sanctioned missions via social media/net. Maybe they'll stop knocking on my door? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/0 ... mg00000067
  22. Another thread discussing the viability of the fundie lifestyle model made me think of a similar religious group that also values large families: the Mormons. Mormons also stress large families, SAHM, self-employment and single income provider. The only difference is they also encourage their young men to go to college and interact with those heathen outsiders. To me, these two things makes a huge difference in overall financial outlook of their followers. This means a young man, serious about providing for a single income family, can plan from a young age to do well in school, sta
  23. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/0 ... r=Religion
  24. Also, they do it to encourage girls to be modest. Just as cringe-worthy as you would think.
  25. How ignorant of your religion do you have to be not to know the founder was a polygamist? don't forget a two time jailbird and wife stealer and pedophile? I guess hiding truths is backfiring. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/21/us/so ... l?hp&_r=4& But when he discovered credible evidence that the church's founder, Joseph Smith, was a polygamist and that the Book of Mormon and other scriptures were rife with historical anomalies, Mr. Mattsson said he felt that the foundation on which he had built his life began to crumble.
