Michelle is getting lots of mileage out of the one outfit.

Maybe a different shrug, pashmina, sweater, scarf, jacket ????? 

She so needs a fashion consultant.

Just think, while you've been shunning wordly things and refusing to listen to music you can dance to, you could have been getting down to THIS. SICK. BEAT.

No one suffered more at the hands of Josh than his parents? Errm - what about the girls he molested? (Just saying...) WTF indeed.

And his children. His parents suffered? The only thing they suffered was the temporary loss of the gravy train.

In regards to the baby carrying thing, maybe it's habit from years in front of the cameras? They're around so often so technically it's always an opportunity to show off the baby. Then seeing others do it slowly everyone started to emulate it. Could be nothing, just a theory.

Yeah, Fundie logic is not very logical.  As you say, clothing styles vary drastically. Long before women wore knee-length skirts, men were wearing kilts and so forth.  And in some non-western communities both men and women wore pants of some sort.  

If they want to follow the Bible as it was written, the men should all wear robes and/or short tunics like the men in Jesus's time did, and the women should wear the robes and veils of that time.

If they want to follow the rule that men and women shouldn't wear each other's clothing, they should look at what is/isn't "men's clothing" or "women's clothing" today and make rules based on that.  This might be that women must not wear pants that have zippers on the front,  men's t-shirts and shirts or jackets that button like men's shirts.  And men have to have some sort of fly on all their pants and cannot wear skirts or shirts that button in the back.   This is aside from any modesty rules.

Instead, they are holding on to the now old-fashioned idea that women must wear skirts, preferably long skirts not only for modesty but to keep women from engaging too comfortably in physical activity best left to men.

You are right that "men's garb" under a skirt is still "wearing men's garb."  

And in any case the prohibition was not against a woman borrowing her husband's cloak or a infant son wearing his big sister's baby clothes.  It was against transvestism.

If they really want to be biblical, they would not wear anything with fabric blends.
I'm surprised the women don't wear culottes. When somebody figured out that having women ride side saddle interfered with the new need for women to do actual work on horses, culottes could allow a woman to ride "like a man" and still look like she was wearing a skirt when she got off the horse. I'd think the funds would be crazy for culottes and jumpsuits.

but it's ok if you cover it up

Those words say a lot.

It's not just about clothing, and modesty.  It's the "covering up" of everything in their dirty little den..... the kinda stuff the rest of us deal with on a daily basis, that might even be vanilla, that they might find sinful.

That occurred to me as i typed it. They are experts at covering things up

I just did a Google image search of "modest ski wear". I can't believe we haven't heard more stories of freak accidents on the slopes from these atrocious outfits.

How do they go up a poma ski lift with a skirt on over their salopettes? Are godly women allowed to go up a poma lift?  I would think it is very hard, poma lifts were really hard for me to get to grips with the first few times I went skiing when I was learning (ok, I was 8 at the time but still).

There must have been quite a few freak accidents that people just haven't heard about!

I'd figure that skiing, like so many other things, is something most adult fundie women would only do a couple of times max before they quit due to pregnancy or "having to look after the kids" or deem it "kids stuff."  Those Pinterest skirts can't be fun or safe or comfortable to ski in.  And, really, fundie women are meant to be in the kitchen incubating babies, caring for kids and making sandwiches for their men after age 20 or so. No time for actual hobbies or fun.

I now have modesty ski skirts being advertised on the side bar. As if 8 months pregnant me is going to squeeze into one of those and go skiing any time soon.

Agreed. When my kids got to be around ten months, we used a backpack carrier. The kids loved it, and so did we

I don't know if this has been covered elsewhere but Ted Cruz will be in Springdale today at the Cross Church.  It will be interesting to see if any Duggars are in the audience. Seems to me they have stayed pretty low regarding politics for the past six months or so.

I want them to announce support for Trump, since any candidate they support loses.

Yep, in fact in 2011(?) there was an episode w/ the Duggars skiing in Colorado. Anna was pregnant and didn't ski, Grandma didn't ski, Michelle stayed home w/ Josie.

I think there was another later skiing episode w/ Josh & Anna and their kids and maybe a sibling or 2 - but can't remember details. Anna skied that time (and didn't like it.)

I didn't think about it @ the time - but the skiing females wore ski pants in both episodes, Nike! (Not.)

(I'd bet they're Cruz people, though.)

Yep, I'd agree on Cruz.

I heard that Trump might lean toward a Huckabee for VP- can't remember where I heard the remark. THAT would be interesting in terms of the Duggars and who they might support.

I cannot imagine the Duggars getting behind Trump.

I'm pretty sure Grandma Mary hurt herself the first day there, and the doctors there told her to stay off her knee as much as possible.

You're probably right - my memories of the episode are quite vague, 5 years was awhile ago. Did Grandma wear ski pants, or did they not show her trying to ski and just say she'd wrenched her knee?

Just checked (I have a copy of the episode); she was skiing while one of the instructors was helping her and she fell down and hurt her knee.

Double defrauded here. I guess I am thick in the skull but what is the difference in ski pants and pants? I can't seem to grasp that. At all.

The word ski. :pb_lol:

Next question:  What's the difference between Michelle and Jim Bob dating and their kids having courtships?

Ski pants are waterproof and insulated. Unless you're asking in terms of fundie rules. Then nothing. I have to say those girls look good in pants. It's a shame they don't wear them more. Ski pants are all thick and add 20 pounds to your thighs. Not all women can rock them.  Maybe they could just call all pants ski pants and claim they are about to go skiing?

      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.  

      Always. 
      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.
