Lori Alexander 66: An Assortment of Cheap Whines

Recommended Posts

Georgiana

Lori Alexander's new friends are a buddy group of racists, so that's fun.  Lori insults mothers of children with special needs who choose to get their children access to services through the public school system, so that's a choice she's made.  And, of course, she's still whining about everything.

Do I condemn single mothers or mothers who can’t be home full time because I teach what God has commanded that I teach to younger women, that they be keepers at home?

No Lori you don't condemn because of what you teach...you simply condemn.  You do it because you think you're better than everyone else sitting in your fine gilded cage.  You speak from a place of privilege and have no idea how the other half lives.  

I was thinking about a couple of friends of mine while out on my errands today.  Their husbands each work an average of 70 hours a week, typically 6-7 days in a row.  One is in a non-degreed industry field, the other is in a more white collar management setting.  Both live perpetually stressed out.  They rarely see their children for more than a few hours and have to split all their off time between the at home family and their extended family or friends.  Their wives have to pick up the pieces and try to hold it all together anytime the men hit their breaking points.  

 One couple is close to being full on fundie, the other is not--they just have a lot going on in life and it's rough right now.  

I can't wrap my head around how this type of life is honorable or sought after.  I can't fathom constantly worrying about my husbands health (mental or physical) while he kills himself to "provide".

Lori’s response tells me that she made a really bad home school mom and teacher. No not everyone can home school their kids. Anyone can stay at home and have their kids do school at home online or through software programs. That’s not the same as teaching them. EA6396FE-95B9-4052-834C-37C9B39F9314.thumb.png.a4c0b6d4daf81b05cec9b030dfff9b0f.png

teachers not only go to school to learn subjects on a deeper level but they also have to pass certifications.

Kids need to learn more than math and how to read. That’s mostly what my mom did for me and I sucked at all of the other subjects. It takes a lot of time and effort to properly home school kids. They not only have to learn more than two subjects a day but they need to be involved in other programs. Music, art, dance, sports, or anything else they are interested in. They need social interaction with other kids their age, that aren’t family.

Yesterday when I was at the doctor having blood drawn (which I hate because I tend to pass out) to see if I need an MMR booster I giddily realized that my actions would seriously piss Lori off.  Not only was I fully vaccinated as a child, but I am willing to double dose myself!  The measles have hit SoCal and no way in hell do I want to catch it at 40 years old!  Take that, Lori!

From Lori to that woman with the autistic child who intends to send her to public school because she feels she isn't smart enough to homeschool her herself:

have you researched those who have cured their children's autism through diet? Mothers have written books about it. It would be well worth your while to do so. She has a much better chance of getting well through your nurture and care for her rather than a government-run, godless school system

Clearly Monica isn't feeding her daughter enough slimy salads and Einkorn bread slathered with $14 butter.:roll:

Lori is wrong. Saxon Math sucks. I mean, elementary math wasn't so bad, but when I did Saxon Algebra I & II, the problem sets did not have a lot from the current lesson for practice.

Personally, I think I could have benefitted from being homeschooled, but both of my parents worked full-time. I didn't find out I was autistic until I was 20, and I struggled a lot. I did well enough that my teachers were not worried. Throughout school, there were a lot of things that I had to teach myself.

I am thankful I went to college because I can continue to use the skills I learned in public school. I graduate this Saturday and I have to figure out how to not lose the knowledge I gained.

So now Lori is not only tellling woman that the should not send her daughter with autism to public school, but that maybe she can cure it with some whackadoodle diet.   Lori, autism doesn’t get cured, but lots of kids improve when they get appropriate interventions, many of which a parent is not trained to provide.  Next she will tell this poor woman that the reason her daughter has autism is vaccination.  It’s one of her favorite points.  You know it’s coming.

This is my second time posting about this topic, but as a public school teacher and mother of a fully vaccinated child with autism, this one just pushes all my buttons.

Supposedly she had parasites in her gut for years.  Add to that an accident that gave her a bulging neck disc and later her pituitary gland went haywire and she had to have surgery on it.  I'm not sure of the timeline for it all, but I think the gland issue was after the children were grown or almost grown.  Ken got a nanny for the youngest and a housekeeper to do the work Lori couldn't do, so the neck and stomach issues were early in their marriage.

Nope.  We had a discussion on her "illness" a while ago and the only thing she ever says is "parasites."   I did more research on parasites than I care to admit and we still couldn't figure any specifics out.

Personally, I think she was malingering, a "diagnosis" I don't give lightly because I *HATE* when people accuse me of just being lazy with my spine fused from T4-S1, a cage at T12 and iliac screws to stabilize the whole thing and my dxs of partial paraplegia and chronic fatigue syndrome.    But sure, all I need to do it get out more and do more housework....

Unlike the members here who can post in excrutiating detail what makes them "sick,"  Lori never gives any specifics.  

We know a few things though.  She was willing to let her 6 week (possibly 3 week) old newborns CIO so she could get HER necessary sleep @Koala can you confirm the age?   

She made her kids go to their rooms for several hours every day so she could get her naps in.

I think we came to the conclusion that Lori is LAZY vs having an identifiable illness.

Lori was credentialed as a teacher but wouldn’t be now. She’s had no ongoing training or professional development- the learning curve would be steep. I don’t disagree that our education system could benefit from reform, but there are lots of positives too. If you only look for negative, you won’t see the positive.

I hate Lori’s minimization of this woman's experience. And guess what, Lori? Not everyone sees autism as something that needs to be “cured”. Why don’t you start looking at the whole person and consider the many gifts all people bring to the table? Why is it impossible for you to offer encouragement? Why must you be so negative and hateful? Seriously- there is something wrong with you.

One thing that I do find interesting about Lori's "illness" is that unlike other exaggerators, malingerers, and fakers I've observed, she doesn't do details like they do. It's really her least interesting trait. Her views are actually more snarkable than her "illness" behavior.

I teach 5th grade English.

It is true that younger children can "just" read books and do math. 

However, by the third grade age, children should be reading a good mix of nonfiction and fiction. They should be applying the math and nonfiction science they read to projects and reports. They should be applying the themes from the novels they read to essays and speeches. They should be comparing historical fiction to primary sources. Each year, these task should get increasingly nuanced and more challenging. 

I feel 100% confident I could homeschool my children up to 5th grade generally and into high school for Literature. However, beyond that, they would need online programs, online teachers to check their work & projects/essays on the topics I'm not an expert on, and they would most likely need a tutor for math and science. That's a lot of money, especially if I were to have 5+ kids. 

My neighbors across the street did homeschool their children in this way. They were upper middle class and could afford it. Perhaps some homeschooling families make great sacrifices to afford these programs. 

The not-so-secret-secret for these struggling to get by fundies is that they just don't teach the stuff. Before her high school "graduation," Joy Duggar said she was glad to be done with Algebra. Middle schoolers can learn Algebra! No one is teaching advanced topics, and especially not to girls. 

The worst is second-generation families aka the when the woefully lackluster homeschool PARENTS are then homeschooling their children!!

I don't know why I just did a little FB foray, but I did, and oh my... this is going to be a lot to process. 

Severine Hausinger says that she was a teacher (or educated to be a teacher)- I thought she had previously said something different regarding her education but can't recall and i have no idea how i would find it. She does have two pages (at least)- the second one is Sev vonDross Snider- and that one has a list of languages she speaks. The Hausinger page doesn't have much information- but it does have some of her liked pages. One of those pages is Bates Plumbing. It appears to be a legit company, operated by a Jason Bates. Mr. Bates has two profiles (of course)- but his belief system is pretty obvious on both pages. 

Guess who "liked" one of his cover photos? None other than Jennifer H. Jackson White (who has been all over Lori's page of late). Guess who "liked" Jennifer's profile picture? None other than our dear, "sweet" DEE ANNE HODSON! And guess who else is friends with good old Mr. Bates? Julie Benson (who is the one who posts stuff about COI. Toni Cunnigham (who has posted on Lori's page) is also tied in. 

I am sure there are more- and I don't really know why I do this to myself- but goodness. Lori Alexander's page is absolutely crawling with white supremacists. It's disgusting. And that little bit of clicking took me no more than 10 minutes- so there is no reason that she can't also conduct research on her frequent commentators.

You knew it wasn't just going to go away silently. We will be hearing about it for months. 

EDIT: and of course she just reposts someone else's post so she can deny "saying" it...but it's how she feels. She still doesn't get it.

I could probably homeschool through most of high school in math and science. That whole literature/history/soft science stuff would be a disaster for me...because that's not where my interests and talents lie. Read some classic novel and write an essay? Nope...not me. Shakespeare? Oh hell no. Compare/contrast Gene Roddenberry's utopia as shown in Star Trek vs. today's society? I could do that in a heartbeat. Reverse engineer the world wide tracking that had to be developed for successful spaceflight? Yup. Describe why the Space Shuttle system was the worst of many bad compromises? Yup. 

See? My interests are so narrow that I couldn't produce "well-rounded" kids. Not that I did, My three are odd ducks. All three have very narrow interest lanes too.

I could homeschool primary school, and then secondary-school level French and German, but not advanced maths or science. Or English for that matter, I was crap at essays. And I’d find any level of homeschooling rather stressful, especially if I had two or more kids of different ages. And making sure they have ample socialising opportunities... nah, homeschooling isn’t for me.

Tell me how women preachers don't study the God's Word themselves. Women who went to seminary get the same education as men.

As for women in ministry, I subscribe to the position of the denomination that I belong to (Assemblies of God):

"A reading of the entire passage of 1 Timothy 2:9–15 strongly suggests that Paul was giving Timothy advice about dealing with some heretical teachings and practices specifically involving women in the church at Ephesus. The heresy may have been so serious that he had to say about the Ephesian women, “I am not allowing women to teach or have authority over a man.” Other passages show that such exclusion was not normative in Paul’s ministry."

Every denomination has their problems, but I'm glad that the Assemblies of God affirms women's gift of ministry.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
