If Jessa was brave enough to compare Jordyn's childhood with Spurge&Henry childhood, she couldn't forgive Michelle for neglecting Jordyn so much. But one has to be very brave and strong to let herself think so deeply, because it hurts a lot.

I wish that I could upvote this a thousand times!

This.  I have felt from the beginning Michelle calls all the shots in that relationship and JB exists to do her bidding

If that’s the case I say Bravo! I’m glad to see an empowered woman in that patriarchy, aren’t you?

No.  Not when the women use that power to oppress and harm other women.

Elizabeth Bathory was also not a role model just because she was an empowered woman.

But you know that.  What’s a day without fucking with FJ, right?

That's really unfair to Jessa. First of all, we only saw what the producers chose to show us. Jessa was all business. 'Don't mess with Jess'. It's not her job to be nurturing to her Mother's children. That would be Michelle's job. The only thing I would expect of her is to not be cruel, and we have no reason to believe she was. Jessa is someone who keeps a cool head and didn't run on her emotions. There's nothing wrong with that. They seem close enough now so she was probably more affectionate when the cameras were turned off. 

I agree. Jessa was a child herself when she was forced into the role of surrogate mother for her younger siblings. The responsibility her parents put on her was completely unfair and I can’t blame her if she resented them for it. We never saw any evidence of the older girls abusing or neglecting their younger siblings, but we did see evidence of the younger children being deeply attached to their Sister Moms - Jordyn included. I think that criticism was wildly uncalled for. I’m not surprised given the poster making the comments though. They seem to enjoy trolling on here on a regular basis.

I can’t imagine how awful it is when the men are the boss in fundie marriages. The women get no support from their community , no matter what bad thing the husband does. The men can make bad decisions about the kids and the women feel helpless to contradict their “leadership.” 

In this day and age, I have never understood why it’s an insult to say a woman “wears the pants in the family.”  It Implies the man should be wearing them and I don’t agree with that!

I think it’s great if Michelle Duggar just pretends to be submissive.

Someday it will do something. There will be a moment.

And we will cheer. :happy-cheerleaderkid:

Yeah, it doesn't work well enough with how I use FJ.

In this particular instance...sometimes the fact that we have so few rules is really annoying. The trolls flame us. As I said elsewhere. Whack a mole. She doesn't give a shit. Sometimes, neither do I.

And it's exhausting giving out the damn PSA about her all over the place when she ensnares people with her bullshit.

I've never understood the criticism Jessa gets on here for her demeanor (her beliefs yes, but not her demeanor).

Granted the poster doing it now is just a troll, but I've seen others criticize Jessa's coolness and reserve. I think it's pretty cool, and really like that she never acted like the "dumb hot daughter" to fit a stereotype or appeal to boys. We've never seen her be cruel to any of her younger siblings and she seems like a very devoted and engaged mother. I actually think it might have been good for the kids to be given some boundaries and consistency with her, especially when she was homeschooling. 

And we all know if Jessa weren't fundie and she found her way to FJ, she'd be a top tier snarker. 

Michael gets this type of criticism in the Bates threads.

Basically everyone snarks on the lack of structure, but then when a female in their world tries to add structure, they get snarked on for it? Makes no darn sense.

I don’t see why it’s so surprising. Jordyn was just another sibling that got handed her to nannie .Spurgeon  and Henry and Ivey  are children she produced with the man she loves   and grew in her womb for 9 months. I am not as ready to think Jessa is all that sentimental and caring about Jordyn now either because Duggars aren’t that introspective and thoughtful that anyone  has seen though I am sure now that she is older and more useful in helping they get along alright. 

I actually think Jordyn is quite attached to Jessa. I ramember talking heads with Jenni and jordyn where they both said they were not letting their respective sister moms get married and leave (or words to that effect). It was back when both older girls were courting or Jill was getting married and jessa was next. It made me quite sad actually. There is a flower girl photo of jordyn kind of clingy to jessa’s hand. 

Jill is very outward with her buddy group but I don’t think that diminishes jessas attempts to be a good sister mom. 

All in all i can hate Anna but she does include jordyn in everything. With Mac.

It’s not great at all. Good for her if she gets to call the shots but her pretending to be submissive inspires her daughters to actually be submissive and teaches her sons to expect a submissive wife. She also have a following that believes in that crap and admires her as a godly woman.

Insisting others follow the rules you yourself is ignoring is incredibly hypocritical.

Thank you for this! That one particular user seemed to be being obnoxious on every freaking thread I've tried to read recently. Hopefully our Rufus blessed ignore feature will return what's left of my sanity as I read.

I've read that evangelicals in general are much more female than male, so I wonder if it's just easier to find women who share all the same beliefs than men. 

I've thought about it a lot (being single and over 40) and I think only men who marry young are likely to stay "in the church." Otherwise they are wondering around once out of high school and end up crossing lines that make them less likely to stay/return (drinking [in excess/drunk/at all depending on the brand of evengelicalism], sex, other activities replacing church attendance, etc.). By 25, they're either married or no longer attending church or really interested in women who would hold to the restrictions of that particular religious faith. Women are more likely to stay in the church but after 25, there's not likely anyone unmarried that is their age. No proof of this, just my observations. Jana will either not marry, marry someone several years younger (and soon), or marry a widower with a gazillion kids to care for.

I thought this thread was about JANA??

I'm a little lost. Personally, I think Jana will be merching something as an Instagram influencer. It's fine for her to do this if Daddy says yes. I think it might get her some possible male attention too.

Unfortunately As she gets older it will get harder to find a man her age as the best of them will have been married a couple of years already  And to be real those who aren’t married yet may want a younger livelier girl. 

I disagree with this. The best men are not always married by a particular age. My husband got married for the first time at age 45, and I know plenty of great men who are happy with a woman their own age.

I've been married once before, but our marriage was my husbands first marriage. He was 39 when we married. It wouldn't have been a problem if he had been married - just pointing out that there are good ones out three who aren't taken :)

Yes, there are decent older men, but how many of them would meet the necessary fundie criteria? IMO, not many, and even for those who might come close, how many would be willing to hop up on the strings to become JB’s man puppet?

Very true. One of my friends was 32 when she married and her husband was 49. He's a really cool guy, very nice and treats her so well. He pretty much gave up on finding anyone when he turned forty. One of my mom's friend's sister thought the same thing she didn't met her husband until she was 55.

Jana has as Father's Day post up on Instagram. Link.

Here's the text for those who don't want to give the clicks:

Spoiler

Happy Father’s Day to the most wonderful Dad in the whole WORLD! 🌎
.
My Dad is the one who has taught me so many skills—from tiling floors, basic plumbing & electrical, painting, and car maintenance, to how to get the best deals. He taught me how to drive, helped me buy my first car, and has let me try my hand at design on his different real estate projects... even if it means spending a little more time and money to correct something I’ve messed up on (sometimes we learn by trial and error). 🙈 Dad has taught me so much as we work on different projects! Whether it’s designing a home or business space, picking out paint colors, flooring, windows or doors, he’s the mastermind, and I love learning from him and doing projects together with him!! 🥰
.
Dad is a giver. Always giving of his own goods and supplies without expecting anything in return. He’s the first one to start a party no matter the occasion. 🥳 He’s the one that pushes us out of our “comfort zone” (for which I am grateful.... at times.) 😜 We all need one of those people in our lives! He is quick to ask for forgiveness. He is a humble man. A man of patience, kindness, compassion, determination, strong. He is the one that leads our family and points us to Christ no matter the circumstance. He’s my Daddy and I’m his little girl. Couldn’t have prayed for a better Dad and can only hope to find a man like him to marry someday!!
.
Daddy—Happy Father’s Day from your little girl! I love you so much! ❤️ @duggarfam

 

"He’s my Daddy and I’m his little girl" ... ehmmm, is that icky? A cultural thing? Just normal? I would never say that, but then I'm from a stoic Nordic family, we don't do feelings.
