Trace Bates 1: The Flossing Fundie

The Campbell thing was just rumor as far as we know. She came along on the ski trip with her brother Edgar and Trace introduced them as friends. Maybe that's all they were?

Some of us guessed they may have met through Elijah, Trace’s good friend from Hawaii. They may have gone on a ski trip a few months ago and met there. That was all just a guess based on some Instagram posts.

I don’t think unrelated boys and girls are really allowed to be friends in IBLP

I think they are allowed to be friends in groups. We have seen fundies who hang out in groups of boys and girls and it’s fine. But if they start to show interest in one another, it’s like there’s this shift. And the parents suddenly keep a close eye on them and get all serious about intentions.

The Roberts sibs seemed to be very friendly with the Bates sibs going back 5 years or so. The only thing that raises my eyebrows is that they were introduced specifically as Traces' friends on that episode.

Do you think they said it that way because Trace primary hangs with the Roberts or because he invited them to the trip?

Internet and I have had an midnight session (b/c of pain related insomnia I’m looking for distractions )

 

Chaney Grace’s last name is Kahle. She is one of 7 siblings and live in Texas. They are four sisters with the middle names Grace (Chaney herself), Joy, Faith and Hope. Her brother used to play baseball and I found his player roaster from 2016 were his educational history is recorded. He went to high school at G**e Faith High School. On their website they say that their mission statement is “G**e Faith Christian School exists to develop and graduate authentic Christian leaders.” This school is located 14 minutes drive from the town where the parents are living today. The (presumably) older brother has gone on to study at a community college that is accredited, and later to an accredited university (as far as I can see, the US education system is very weird for me as a northern European ).

 

Any who... if this turns out to be more than four photo ops and we get an announcement for dourting for Chance/Tracney I have names, ages, exact location etc. and the sloothing can begin.

Way back in the day, when the Duggar’s and Bates used to hang out on 17 kids and counting, all the girls were seen together and the boys were seen together. There wasn’t any mixed gender talking session. I think it was jelly who said that boys and girls have different interest. A lot changed after Zach’s failed courtship. I hope trace ventures out and figures out his beliefs and what he truly wants to do with his life. If that is being a cop then great. I hate the pressure that these kids are given.

@is.it.real Interesting stuff. I too am waiting for him to call Chaney his girl. I find dourting interesting. I don't understand why they can't just date then propose. CarVan's courtposal was extra as all get out. But it was beautiful enough to have been an actual proposal. This would be a good time for the Bates to openly redefine their dating measurements and why courting is necessary at this point.

Wait, is this a Duggar name?  :my_tongue:    And if not, why not?

If they are not at least "getting to know each other, with that comment, I will be flummoxed. Flummoxed, I tell you!

Next he will call her a snack. 

Barf!

Robert Garrison Brown is my current least favorite Brown offspring. (where I first heard this used)

That expression is gross. I know that it's one in a long line of demeaning expressions to women. But it implies such temporary lack of interest.

When it popped up over on their thread that he was dating I perused his Instagram. He seems like a more conservative Brown offspring and definitely a douche in the nature of his father.

You know, honestly 'snack' doesn't bug me. It reminds me of the phrase "You look like an absolute treat!"

Maybe a bit old fashioned, but when I think 'snack' I think 'indulge' and hell yeah I want my boyfriend to indulge in me with his eyes! If I didn't, he'd just be a friend.

Now, if a random [non-flaming] guy called me a snack or a male friend/acquaintance called me a snack, I'd be a little iffy, but it wouldn't bug me at all if a female or flaming guy (friend or not) was like "oh honey, you look like an absolute snack!" I'd be like "thank-you!"

Chaney and Trace look SO similar to me. I know there's psychological evidence that many people find people who look like them attractive, but it still weirds me out. (I thought Campbell, Trace's maybe-ex, ended up with someone who looked like her too!)

I was also thinking they have so many long As in their names, they almost rhyme. If they have kids, I hope they go with names like Grace, Aidan, Brayden, Caden, Drayton, Angel, Stacy, Macy, etc. to keep that long A going! (Katie and Kaci got there first.)

 

PS - speaking of dating people you look like, does anyone remember Boyfriend Twins, which was a Tumbler that just collected boyfriends who look really similar? I just checked and it seems like it doesn't exist anymore. Too bad.

To be fair, I see many young women call whatever hot dude "snacks" (or even weirder, "snaccs") a lot online. I agree it sounds really dehumanizing but I think many people mean it like "I could just eat them up with a spoon."

Courtship proposal? ?

Trace, Katie, Whitney, Josie and Alyssa have all commented on it. Erin might be busy trying to fit a 4th bed in the nursery and Carlin is busy designing hers on Pinterest.

Since it’s Chaney’s instagram, it may not be considered official. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chaney wore skirts to the Bates home though. She probably wants to make a good impression and basically everyone knows how the Bates parents feel about skirts on their own daughters while they live at home. If Chaney had to do some hiking, I’m glad she wore jeans instead of a long skirt and flip flops like the Duggar girls.

Kelly had to choose between giving up on the skirts only or never seeing any of her boys marry and she choose the pants.

Just kidding, but its true that none of the girls the boys courted were skirts only, they dont seem to be attracted to the super religious fundie girl.

I don't find a girl wearing pants to be that shocking.  Clothes do not indicate anything where horrible beliefs are concerned.  Also if you watch closely - even the women we know where pants in the Bates and Duggar families - wear skirts when at the parental compounds.

      Did whatever I had change my personality at all?  Maybe a good thing if it makes my asshole tolerance even lower than before.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.
