I tried to do a census of her posters last night and got lost in a fog.  A rough estimate is 1/3 of her commenters are men.

I also speculate that she's boosting her posts again.  I noticed several comments on several posts this week of people who have no idea how they got there....stating "it just popped up" in their news feed or they thought they were on another kind of page.  She has to keep cultivating new audiences because of all the folks she has banned.   She wouldn't be happy if she only received 6 likes a day and/or comments with people saying "love your site!"  No, she needs the discord and people she can talk down to.

Just a question:  What is the HRBT?

That's the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel here in southeastern VA. @feministxtian and I have both spent many an hour stuck in traffic trying to cross that thing over the years. She was smart--she moved. I'm still here. LOL!

The HRBT is hell on concrete over the water. There's NO way to get off and go around, unless you want to turn around, attempt the mid-town or downtown tunnels then over the MMBT, or for the colossally stupid or masochistic, the JRB. 

Getting from Norfolk to Newport News/Hampton is a fucking nightmare on a good day.

Although I live in Atlanta, I grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida.  There are five major ways out in case of a hurricane.  Four of them are over water.  My guess is that the Howard Frankland and the Gandy Bridges over Tampa Bay are somewhat similar to the HRBT.

To this day, I still have issues with the story of God telling Abraham to slay Isaac, even though he wasn’t an infant(and God saying “Just wanted to see if you were paying attention!” at the end).  And I consider myself a Christian.

I have questions about several things in the Bible, that one especially got my attention after I became a mother.  I am a Christian and I have always had questions about things in the Bible.  It does not mean that I'm not a Christian.  It just means that I have a brain and I use it.  Not that Lori would understand that.

He is our Heavenly Father.   Jesus is not our "boyfriend" and He isn't our husband right now, if we are Christians. He WILL BE our Bridegroom ONE DAY at the Wedding Feast of the Lamb in Heaven.  But that is not now.

I really dislike these weird religious correlations that fundies make. It is REALLY clear in Scripture that Jesus is OUR BROTHER.  Right now, He is our BROTHER.  The firstborn of many BRETHREN.  

He is the way TO the Heavenly Father.  Jesus is our FRIEND and our BROTHER and our Bridegroom someday.  But that goes for MEN AND WOMEN. So, do these people really wanna' get weird and start telling their husbands that they need to "focus on the relationship with their Heavenly husband and their relationship with their earthly WIFE will thrive as a result?"  Because that's true for the men as well - they are part of THE Bride of Christ...

Why do we have to be as weird, and ugly, and obnoxious and rude and hateful as possible to call ourselves Christians?  I don't get it...

Steven and Emily are not homeschooling! They are sending their kids to school! Sounds like Emily wants a bit of a break! Maybe some of that evil "me time" that feminists are always talking about.

This is interesting to me. Grace has an August birthday, so we have to decide whether she will start kindergarten in 2.5 years or 3.5 years. I won’t send her to full day kinder at 5, but I would love to do half day. Not many options for that around us unfortunately!

If you’re an August baby or have an August baby, how have you handled this?

I feel like writing to tell her:

1. You can sign your child up for full day kindergarten and just take her out at lunch time (at least when my kids were in elementary school)

2. Chances are, your child won't want to go with you!

@Hisey,  I know how my mom handled having an oldest child with a birthdate one day after the enrollment deadline and her second born who was 11 1/2 months younger.  They would not only have been in the same grade, they would have been in the same class as it was a small school.  My mom's solution:  she lied about my brother's birthdate.  My good ol' Baptist mom lied so they'd not be in the same class.

Alyssa is featured on this blog:

and this part is very sad:

Quote

YOU MENTIONED THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO YOUR BODY AND FOOD WAS UNHEALTHY DURING YOUR DANCING YEARS.  WHEN DID THIS BEGIN AND WHAT DO YOU THINK FUELED IT?

Sad but true—I think I started to throw my breakfast smoothies down the toilet and my lunches away at school when I was only 12.  I’d starve most of the day to have a flat tummy at ballet, then eat everything in sight once I got home late at night. Part of this was fueled by my environment—my teacher was a bit old school and we would overhear her telling the older girls they had to lose weight if they didn’t fit into a costume from the year before, but another part of it was my own need to be a people-pleaser.  Because ballet is an extremely disciplined sport, ballet dancers tend to be perfectionists anyway, which does not help.

I wonder if by "people pleaser" she means "parent pleaser."  If your parents are constanlty reminding you that you are five pounds overweight, how can you NOT have issues with food. 

This is just so disturbing. 

Edited to add a direct link to the specific post.

Emily and Alyssa seem like MUCH better and kinder women than Lori. I suspect in different ways she has complicated their lives.

Is the Bible pro-life?  Not really.  https://ffrf.org/component/k2/item/25602-abortion-rights  A few things jumped out at me. 

'The gruesome priestly purity test to which a wife accused of adultery must submit will cause her to abort the fetus if she is guilty, indicating that the fetus does not possess a right to life (Numbers 5:11-31).'  So much for the 'don't punish the unborn for the sin of the parents' thing that the anti-choice crowd claims.  Abortion is fine, as long as it's a man making the decision, not a woman. Gotcha. 

'God will punish the Israelites by destroying their unborn children, who will die at birth, or perish in the womb, or never even be conceived (Hosea 9:10-16).'  The KJV says in verse 16 that 'Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.'  This isn't allowing babies to die, or nature taking its course, it's 'God' stating directly that he's going to kill them.  What's your problem, God?  Hangry?  Here, have a Snickers, you'll feel better soon.  

 

There's also the VERY disturbing last two lines from Psalm 137. It doesn't matter how chirpy Boney M sound when they sing it, it's still horrible. Or is that different because the kids are born and Lori and her leghumpers don't care so much for babies that are born?

I had to take a break from TTW. I've been writing an essay on Dinah in Genesis 34, and thinking about Lori as well was just too much. My disappointment over some of her commentators is equally draining.

And seriously, the composition of her commentator base is really disturbing.

What will today bring?  Let us see....goes off to check FB.  Ah, it's a YouTube wanna be radio preacher, complete with the over-enunciated words and dramatic pauses.  The wonders of YouTube -- they used to have to pay for radio time, now they can just have a fake studio and film themselves and send it out to their sheep followers for free.

Now we can presume the slings and arrows are being fired at Emily about daycare.  My mom worked from the time I was 3 until I was an adult.  Most summers and holidays were spent with my grandmother who would cook for my mom and give her dinner to take home for us.  When she and I were both working in downtown New Orleans, she had the cheaper parking, and it made sense for us to ride together.  We had great conversations in the car.  Once she and my dad both retired, they were my chauffers so I wouldn't have to pay $100 a month for parking (a whole lot of money in 1988).  It gave them an outing, and saved me money.  Nothing like being dropped off and picked up at the door of your building.  My mom working did not cause attachment problems.  It gave us money so that we could do things like a summer vacation together in the 1972 Ford LTD station wagon for even more bonding and quality time, and great memories. 

Lori has this great need to dominate others into submission to her, not to the Lord.  She is the troll that lives under the Titus 2:3-5 bridge.

My mom worked and I appreciate that she did. It contributed to keeping us fed, sheltered, clothed, etc, and provided us an opportunity to go on a yearly vacation (usually an extended weekend within a 5 or so hour drive but that never mattered) and participate in extracurricular activities. 

It also meant that my dad was around and not working 2-3 jobs or 20 hours per day. He attended school events during the day, chaperoned field trips, and was at sports games in the evening. They were both there and I’m grateful for that. 

I work to assist us financially and because we have great health insurance- but I also work because I like it. It doesn’t mean I don’t love my children- or that being a mother isn’t fulfilling. It means that we are all complex creations- with many assets and talents and desires and dreams.

Why does Lori have to stifle the light in others?

I believe it was Nancy Pelosi who recently said that Trump is a projector.   

This fits Lori to a T.  Lori tells her story every time she opens her mouth.  She has many issues and I would not be at all surprised if Lori (unconsciously) resented having children, wished she could have made it as a working woman, missed out on falling in love (thus says it is ridiculous),  etc.  She obsesses so about the same issues over and over again in an attempt to normalize them  ...  but she can't  ...  because they are NOT.

"Psychological projection".  Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others."

Petty alert... but... just say pumping Lori. It’s really not necessary to say “pumping my breasts”. I swear she has an obsession with sex and anatomy.

And professional women keeping their maiden names has nothing to do with not committing. My sister in law uses her maiden name because she got her PhD before they were married. Her research and dissertation process led to multiple publications- all in her maiden name. She worked hard and her accomplishments should be readily found in her profession. It does not mean that they don’t have a “joint mission” whatever that means. 

Also- why, Lori, are you pulling from men’s pages that presume to teach men when you are supposed to be teaching women? I mean, we all know why. But seriously. 

When I looked at the page for the source of the video posted today, I recognized some of the male commenters names. What disgusting company she keeps.

So if you marry and don’t take your husbands last name you aren’t bonding with him. How silly. It’s just a name. I am not married yet but I plan on hyphenating my last name. I want to do this because of my dad passing. It’s a way for me to keep part of him. I don’t plan on having kids so it shouldn’t be an issue. I have a very close bond with my boyfriend, the one I plan on marrying.

Oh, Emily. Preschool AND kindergarten? Don't you know that children need their mommies every single minute? I hate to think of the damage she'll endure playing legos with other toddlers.

Quote

 

Emily Alexander Emma Garner thanks for your perspective! You’re right it does seem to be a child by child thing. She is starting preschool in the fall, two days a week 9-11:30.

And--without shame--she's admitting she's going to do the same with her boy! Doesn't she know about porn in schools?

Quote

Emily Alexander Emily Harkey definitely makes sense! Steven was held back (May birthday) and he said it was the best decision, so we will definitely be doing it for David (June birthday). Grace is very bright and communicative, so it wouldn’t surprise me if she was “ready” at 5 but I love the thought of an extra year with mommy or in part time preschool to prepare her (not academically I mean, but in other ways.)

It's the "my kid is so bright I must start her early" argument. Emily is "learning towards" starting her at 6, but she's *just too bright.*

Come on. Emily wants a break (which I can understand!) Good thing some studies agree with her, because it's all about the kid, of course.

Quote

Emily Alexander Beth Starr very good point! I would say that if Grace is the oldest in her class and is already bright, she may be bored. One person commented above that studies show long term it’s better for kids to be younger in their class. Sigh. Who knows. I would lean toward having her start at 6.

My personal opinion is that 17 is very young to leave for college, and so I'd hold back any child who would leave home so young.

I have a kid with a late birthday who stared kindergarten around 6. As a teen, she loved being the first one to drive in her grade. I loved it too, because I never liked the idea of her being driven around by her friends in some old car. This way, we could control (to some extent lol) her drivers education and the car she traveled in.

Eventually everyone catches up, of course, but this was helpful during the first few years of driving.

I know it’s supper shitty that she had a heart attack but I don’t understand why her husband couldn’t have home schooled/ ran the house while she ran the business. And no Lori it’s not about idolizing a paycheck. It’s about keeping a roof over their head and food on the table. 825AD669-1682-4C44-97EE-0B92694786A7.thumb.jpeg.228ad16e48b59b2e0b6222240207a6b2.jpeg

My 11 year old (girl) has a June birthday and my 9 year old (boy) has a July birthday. We didn’t hold either of them back a year before starting kinder. It would have been a disaster for my 9 year old. He was bored from K-2nd grade, and each year by December, was asking why he needed to keep going to school because he already knew what the teacher was teaching. He wasn’t a behavior problem-he just resorted to taking a stack of books to school each day and read while the teacher taught. 

In 3rd grade he entered a specialized program through our public school system designated for high performing learners. It was rough in the beginning because he wasn’t accustomed to being challenged in the classroom, he wasn’t accustomed to putting forth effort, and wasn’t used to homework that involved more than simple worksheets. 

He’s not the easiest kid to parent but this was absolutely the right choice for him. 

I have a November birthday and started kinder at 4 and college at 17. It wasn’t an issue for me but I’ve always been mature for my age.

Taking the last name is not a universe thing. Many countries forbid the changing of names. Again, more extra-biblical crap
