Fascinating Womanhood

Go to the Fascinating Womanhood website: fascinatingwomanhood.net/ Look at the purple drawing on the top left. Is it just my imagination, or is that a drawing of a vagina?

It rather looks like one, yes.

Carolyn Jessop, known for escaping the FLDS, read this in high school and snarked the fuck out of it in her book. It was awesome.

I'm about halfway through reading "Escape", and that's what prompted me to google Fascinating Womanhood.

"Fascinating Womanhood" was one of the books my mum recommended to me, when I was single after a serious relationship. I looked it up on online, not knowing what it was, and told her no way in hell. So, she gave me "The Rules" as a present. I read it, called her back, and we had a pretty good discussion about all the things wrong with those books. She later successfully used some of the (abstracted) tips from the books to train the dog. He's a very well-behaved dog. :lol:

For some reason I can't see the picture though... :(

When I was in HS, one of the women in our church recommended this book to girls my age. My mom and dad told me, then her, that it was BS and that they had no interest in their daughters (they had 3) following any of the stuff in the book. It is my understanding that neither my mother (in 1956) nor her mother (in 1929) had obey in their wedding vows.

I think the picture is actually supposed to be some sort of stylized, ridiculously skinny woman. It does look like a vagina, though.

Looking at the links below the picture...someone offers classes to teach this garbage?

Looks like she's about to disappear entirely. Which is pretty much the point of the book, isn't it.

Does anyone else think the photo of Helen Andelin on that site looks off? She looks very young in that picture, but the picture doesn't look that old. According to the info, she died in 2009 at age 89 so she must have been born around 1920. I dunno, maybe it's just me.

It looks like the website is about to disappear. No current class dates, and no book sales....

Yikes - this does sound pretty awful. I have to admit that I'm sort of intrigued by this book even though I've never read it. Back in the fundie church where I grew up, we were encouraged to read Beautiful Girlhood but FW was discouraged b/c the pastors thought it encouraged women to manipulate men.

I agree! That photo I'd just.. Odd.

So is the purple vagina woman. Lol

I didn't know that Facinating Womanhood still existed. I thought it was drivel when I first heard about it and that it had died out long ago. It is however endlessly snark worthy.

Good grief.

After you have downloaded the workbook, punch 3 holes in it and place it in a three-ring loose leaf binder. Or take it to a copy center to have it punched and spiral bound.

This was apparently last updated in 2007. okaaaay.

I can't see Purple Vagina Woman either :( Maybe somebody from the site regularly googles and spotted us?

I was just there and I saw it. I also agree that the photo of the author may have been photoshopped to try to make it more up to date looking. She was pretty though.

If you scroll down below the picture, they do give an email address to contact if you want to take a class in the spring of 2013.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
