Study on Evangelical Men and Sex Before/After Marriage

Recommended Posts

Interesting study by Sarah Diefendorf, a secular sociologist, about evangelical men and sex:

Incredible how they don't see women as wanting sex or being sexual beings. Wonder how the ATI/VF crowd would view this? And it's equally tragic that if these men have problems with sex, what about their wives who've been promised prince charming?

You know, when I first started reading the article I had so many thoughts I wanted to share. By then end, though, I was just tired and sad. So tired of the fundy culture making sex such a burden when it should be such a joyful thing. And sad for the men (and women) who suffer under this system. It never ceases to amaze me how much fundies think about sex. Way more than I do, frankly, and I have a fairly high sex drive.

Oh, do share your thoughts!

I heard an NPR story once where a guy who was an ex-evangelist talked with a friend of his from childhood about what they were told about women, and his friend mentioned how eventually he didn't see women's bodies, just their heads floating like balloons, so he wouldn't be defrauded. Sad how he had to diminish half the human race to body-less heads in order to not be tempted.

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      Someone please remind me to buy peanut butter. Seriously, I have been meaning to get some for at least three weeks, and everytime I remember, the shops are already closed!

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
