I would have much preferred my husband dump me for a leggy grad student half my age than dying horribly from cancer 4 and a half years ago.  Its much harder to fathom an enemy that only shows up under a microscope or on an MRI.

You and me both. He could have dumped me for some cocktail waitress at some casino and it wouldn't have hurt nearly as much as watching the cancer kill him by inches.

I have been pretty sick for the last four months. I’ve had four surgeries for kidney stones and came home with a kidney stent three times. My second surgery landed me in the ICU with sepsis and ARDS. 

FROM TWITTER TODAY:  The Transformed Wife @godlywomanhood For women to say there were career women in biblical times is absurd! There were no factories, office buildings, schools, or ho

Too much introspection? What the fuck is that? If anything we don’t have enough of it in this country. It’s a skill I actively have to teach people

a favorite old fundie Taliban Tony's ex Paulina Marie, who now posts as The Traditional Wife is reposting his stuff.

My mistake. Her handle on FB and Insta is "The Traditional Mother." It's a veritable Girls on Film situation with photos of shiny hair down to her denim-skirted derriere and close-ups of her bosoms corralled under aprons. The page is a an ad for marrying another nitwit ala Taliban Tony.

And of COURSE it's all women's fault that the US Capitol building was invaded the other day...

Women leaving their God-ordained sphere has caused havoc upon this nation. Children who were raised by daycare workers and the public schools have no wisdom at all since wisdom isn't taught there. The fruit of this is being manifested today, and it's ugly. Go back home, women!

In every conceivable way Lori is utterly predictable. So, of course she blames women for the attack.

I wish I had a screen shot, but Ken had a public post on his FB for a few weeks, with an article (I'm paraphrasing) that basically was a call to fight supporting Trump's lies...which had a drawn image of a tough looking Trump who was bloodied (presumably from battle with the "left") and essentially had a title like "These are battle words"

 

HMM...interesting after what happened in DC this week, the post is magically gone.  Everyone (Lori and Ken, looking at you) who perpetuated the lies and false narrative and posted and disseminated this kind of inflammatory rhetoric, YOU ARE ALL COMPLICIT!!  ALL of YOU!

EDIT

Found the article. This was the one he reposted...and is now deleted. From a right-wing blog: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/11/fighting-words-david-horowitz/

All of this banning of conservative voices and even social media 'friends' have shown us the real life importance of family and friends in our lives. THESE are who we all need to be investing our lives into. Focus upon them instead. Let's learn to put down our phone more often.

The posts lamenting the state of politics and the world which was usually preceded by a post claiming women in the "good ole days" weren’t interested in or couldn’t stomach politics and left it all to the men slay me.

Goodness Lori has more social media accounts then I do as a 28 year old. Can’t  complain about all these youngins being online all the time now can we? I just read someone post that you can’t complain about a private company banning you from their platform and at the same time support a Christian baker refusing to make a gay couple a wedding cake.  I remember a convo with my father about the same exact thing. People want to support something until they’re targets of a similar thing. 
 

For the record I think there are important differences in this case. One is blatant discrimination against gay people. The other is refusing to allow toxic information to be spread around. However, conservatives don’t see it that way.

Damn, do as I say not as I do much Lori? Bitch got more social media accounts than I do. One for harassing the VA regularly and the other for friends/family. Yes, I harass the VA on the regular these days...and yes it occasionally gets attention. 

However, I do have to be careful...as the school I teach for is connected in a big way into the LV community. So...I have to mind what I say although there is no identification of the school on my personal profile. Doesn't matter...it's still in my best interests to not say certain things. See, if I damage the school, I damage me along with the rest of the faculty and the owners of the school. 

Lori has no ability to figure out that her bullshit could hurt her husband's or sons' businesses. What an idiotic bitch.

Precisely, because I work for community mental health I try to be very aware of how I present myself to the public. Counselors need to be careful anyways since we have so many ethic codes. Outside of Facebook my other profiles are anonymous. I don’t think she realizes the ramifications of her writing. I do wonder how it might impact the adoption process.

Exactly. Fortunately, I can bitch to my boss if some of my students are jerks. I don't have to publicize it. And, I have plenty of other outlets to blow off steam...my daughter, Rufus bless her, will listen to me bitch for hours. And, because of a certain grief/recovery group I belong to, I have to make sure I never publicly mention anything from that group as part of a confidentiality agreement in that group. In other words, I have to carefully filter just about anything I say on my social media accounts. FJ is probably the only place where I'm anonymous enough to vent if I want to...

I'm not sure that the differences between these two cases are that great, to be honest. Both are private companies choosing to run their businesses the way they see fit. The baker is under no obligation to serve anyone - it's his business and he can totally pick and choose who he wants to do business with. His business decisions probably mean lots of people will choose not to do business with him, but it's still his business, and he can do business with whoever he likes. The same as social media sites - they decide what they will and won't have on their platform and we can choose to use the site, or not. Business owners make the rules for their businesses. If we like their rules, we do business with them. If we don't like their rules, we don't do business.

Disclaimer: There may be discrimination laws I'm not aware of with the baker. Laws are not what I'm talking about. I'm just saying that business owners, no matter what their business is, can run their business however they like. It may not be wise, and it may destroy their business, but the baker and FB are really not that different.

I don't think it will impact. Alyssa posts about how her mom babysits. Her Christian adoption agency must be OK with Lori. Conversely, they would have warned Alyssa. 

I'm horrified that adoption can be a private process in which parents with money can choose whatever agency that fits their ideology. In many countries it is a public process and the requirements are the same for every family. 

Also, the word "private agency" makes me suspect that there are less requeriments than in public ones, because adopting parents are customers and each adoption means money for the agency.

Maybe I'm not understanding well how private adoptions work in US, but it smells bad for me.

A baker cannot refuse to make a cake for ideology reasons. It would be the same that a baker not serving cakes to black people. Business owners are not 100% free and yes, there are laws against discrimination. 

The facebook, twitter censorship is a different matter. If they can prove an user is spreading lies or hate messages, they can cut their accounts. Lori and PP and a lot of fundies have seen their facebooks and twitters cut sometimes for that reason.

There is a big difference between "punishing" someone because you don't like their religion/skin/sex and "punishing" someone because that person is lying or is a thread for others.

Okay, I wondered if that was the case. Laws are different where I live. Here, businesses can refuse to serve whomever they want, for whatever reason they want. It's likely business suicide, but it's legal.

Just to clarify: I would not support any business who discriminated against anybody. I do not support what that baker did. I just didn't see any difference between them and FB.

Also, as an erotic author, I've seen the side of FB that bans people arbitrarily, for no reason whatsoever. A book cover might show a bit too much skin or something and bam! account gone. Whereas another author might be posting almost full nudity, and nothing happens. There is no rhyme nor reason to it. Which is just one more reason why I don't see much difference between them and the baker - they both do whatever they like.

I have done some research and it appears that it IS illegal under the Human Rights Act to discriminate against someone in the provision of goods and services because of their sexual orientation, where I live. I know it's illegal to discriminate with employment, but I figured businesses picking and choosing their customers was different because a few years ago a B&B owner refused to let a lesbian couple have a room with a king-sized bed and insisted they had to have single beds. The couple went elsewhere, and complained to the Human Rights Commission but their complaint was not withheld. Refusing them the king-size room was allowed, because it was their own house (not a motel) and there is a legal exception with shared accommodation. (I just found out the reason now. I didn't know it before; I just knew their complaint had failed.)

So the baker refusing to bake a cake for the gay couple would be breaking the law here, too. 

I've been on the receiving end of discrimination all my life, so I don't support any type of discrimination at all. But most businesses are too clever to openly admit to discrimination, which makes it so hard to prove.

A public agency is one that's run by the state government. Its goal is to find homes for children in state care (for example, foster care, or foster-to-adopt).

A private agency is not evil. It handles the adoption of children (generally babies but not always) who are NOT in state care. Most often, it's a birth mother choosing to put her child up for adoption. She gets to look at various "profiles" of different families, and choose the one she likes best. Once she makes her choice, she gets to know the adoptive parents, and often they are present at the birth. Usually, they remain in contact while the child grows up, according to a prior agreement. There aren't a lot of secrets, which is good. The agency is a way for birth parents and adoptive parents to connect, a sort of middle man. It's actually a good thing to have experienced counselors guide people through the process, because it protects both parties. Money does change hands, but then again, why would any work for free at an adoption agency?  

I don't have a problem with the fact that Christian agencies exist. They serve birthparents who have a strong preference for a Christian family.

A baker can say he's "out of stock" or "that one's already been taken" or he's "not making those anymore." If backed into a corner, he can do a terrible job on the cake for the gay couple, and say "Oops, sorry, do you still want it?" He can have "delays" and the cake can be three days late.

Unfortunately, it's pretty easy to discriminate if you are bound and determined to do so.

Adoption agencies don't check the morals of the grandparents. Can you imagine? That would mean those with crazy parents could never adopt. I don't like Alyssa, but it's not her fault she has a mother who writes a horrible blog.

I think you are really overestimating the resources of your average adoption agency. Their social workers don't have the time, money or legal responsibility to investigate every relative.

Lori is not just a relative, she babysits. She will be in charge of the adopted baby sometimes. The agency should ask who will look after the baby, and once they get the grandparents name, it tooks 2 minutes to google search Lori and Ken and discover how lovely they are. And I'm not talking about their political beliefs, I'm.talking about their obsession with beating children! 

A friend of me was rejected as an adopting mom because she had childhood trauma. She had a lot of meetings and investigation. It looks as if Alyssa only had to do papers and beautiful pictures.

I came here specifically to see if Lori is having a meltdown over this week's events.  It is laughable to me that she blames women for the events at the capital and not her own corrupt worldview.  

In reading some of our stories I was reminded how much  I loved my life as a single person.  I went to university and then grad school.  I have a career where I am the boss.  I have hired and fired more men and women than I can recall.  I have travelled the world and lived life seizing opportunities which interested me, and enjoyed the fellowship of amazing men and women who have lifted me up when life was too hard to be on my own. 

And I've always had a family.  We even refer to one another as our "family by choice" - brothers and sisters who are kindred in this journey.  While I did want to meet someone and get married; I wanted the right person more than any person, and I wanted to suck the marrow out of life.  I don't regret a single day of waiting; of choosing to be myself and fully alive.  I don't even regret missing out on having children.  I think it's more Christian to live life fully than to simply trudge through a life that demeans any existence outside of being a wife and mother. 

I met my husband when I was 42, and in the nearly 7 years since, I have been so thankful to be married to him.  We have dig-your- heels-in disagreements at times (especially with politics right now); but it only makes our marriage stronger.  Mr. Krazy would never be happy in the kind of marriage that Lori advocates.  There is an intimacy that sometimes is only achieved by wrestling thru some things with one another.  It's not about a transaction or win/lose at all.  

I don't necessarily believe that there is a person for everyone, but I certainly believe that life is better on one's own than with the wrong person.  And I'm truly thankful that I didn't bow to pressure and settle for less than what I have now.  I'm more alive than I've ever been.  And I wish the same for all of you here, no matter what that looks like for you.
