Matching Outfits (Duggars and Bates)

Recommended Posts


I always thought the non-matching outfits were an F-You Internet thing. It always struck me as a) a way to prove to us snarkers that the kids DO have a choice in how they dress and DO have individual personalities, and b) a way to potentially "save" people or get support for their political beliefs (The idea being: "The Duggars are Just Like You! They dress in normal people clothes, wear makeup, and do their hair like normal people. Aren't they just relatable? Don't you just love them? Don't you just want to be like them? Why not convert?")

Is he? I hadn't heard that.

I wouldn't be surprised - he has no real education and no experience other than being a fundy Christian celebrity. FRC should be embarrassed to have hired him.

This is true. But I must tell you when I was sixteen years old if my mom had told me we had to dress alike, I would have refused. Now, I know, they don't have that kind of power to say no.

At 16, I think most moms and dads are not overly enthusiastic about their daughters dressing style. At least around here those are the years most kids develop their own style and that results in some horrible try outs. My dad hated dr Martins, those where working shoes not ladylike, I came home from the hairdresser with black hair once (not my finest hairstyle) and mom was jerking up my shirts all the time. I had a clothing allowance so total liberty, but no they weren't fans :).

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
