Josie & Kelton 7: So Boring that No One Discussed Her Baby Shower


HerNameIsBuffy

Recommended Posts

Kelton is Not Hot to me because his Hitler Youth haircut gives me the heebie jeebies. Doesn’t matter shirt on or shirt off, if you’ve got a Nazi haircut it’s Officially Not Hot. 
 

but also, the double standard is infuriating.

I give his haircut a pass because I actually see it all the time in the very liberal city where I live. The high fade Hitler youth cut is just fashionable and popular right now, not a right wing thing.

The post I was answering said that little boys can go shirtless while girls cannot. I just said that it is not like that in other countries.

I feel like Spain and France (and maybe some other countries, those are just my experience) have more of a tradition of even grown women going topless at the beach so that probably plays into it. In the US it's pretty unusual to see school-age girls topless, even at the beach. There's an idea that girls and women should be wearing tops, breasts or no breasts. I think it may even be more of a gender norm for dress thing than a modesty thing, since there are lots of bikini tops that make a chest look sexier than just wearing nothing. So for me seeing a girl topless is similar to seeing a boy in a dress -- it happens but definitely not the norm.

The issue wasn't about modesty, so I am not making the comparison of no shirt on Kelton to a shirtless female. My observation was in regards to the double standard of calling out body shaming for not meeting somebody else's ideas of what body types are attractive and what's ones are not.

You are obviously never in the Rodrigues threads where people talk about how bad Jill looks all the time. And @Melissa1977did not say anything about his body or shaming. She said he was not hot. He is not. Others said it was wrong he could laze around shirtless but his wife has to be modest. Still others pointed out that he looks like he is 15. You are the only one who brought up body types. A couple other people mentioned his “okay body” after YOU brought up body shaming. I am totally confused as to why you are digging in and putting words into people’s mouths.

Confession: 

Kelton looks very similar to my first love. So as a teen, I probably would have thought Kelton was handsome. But now as a 38 year old, I just see a kid. Kids can’t be “hot” to me. The fact that Kelton is in his 20s is still surprising when I look at him.

He is almost 30, isn't him?

I graduated from high school the year before he was born. I could be his mother. I need a drink. I hate thinking about the Bateses (and those around them) and their ages with the realization that I could essentially be Kelly Jo.

I'm a bit young for Kelton but I could be Josie's mom. So I could be a grandma! Or one of those pregnant-grandmas so popular in fundieland.

I’m 10 years older than the Bates and Duggar parents. My oldest is Zach and Josh’s age, and my youngest (2nd kid) is between the twins’ and Jill’s ages (M’s and Erin’s for Bates). I have have 1 granddaughter- very different lifestyles-

It can go the other way too. Sarah Maxwell is a few months older than me and I’m married, with 2 kids, and a college degree. While she has to work only for her family and sleep in the same room as her sisters.

I realized recently that my mom was only 2 yrs older than I am when she became a grandma.  My kids are still young so I have many years before becoming a grandma.  It's crazy how life works sometimes.  But she wasn't a fundie, just a "good Catholic girl" in the 50's who married young and had kids spread out over several decades.  I have a niece born the same day as Anna and another born the same day as Jinger.  The striking differences in their lives always amazes me.

My parents were kind of youngish when they became grandparents. My mom was 47 and my dad was 49.5. I won’t be that young unless my kids are teen parents. They better not be!

I am the oldest and had my kids when I was late 20s and early 30s. The brother closest in age had his kids in his  late 30s, and my other brother is nearly 10 years younger, and he had his kids in his late 20s, early 30s. So my nephews (yes, all boys except my daughter) are 25, 24, 24, 22 and 21. These boys’ lives are so different than the Duggars. My oldest nephew, who will be 26 (1995) in December is a college grad, works, lives with his GF who is applying to PA programs and works as phlebotomist. They own a home, have dogs etc. Joe Duggar was born in. 1995 and he has 3 kids and is dependent on his daddy. My nephew who is Kendra’s age is in his final year of college. It’s like they live in a different world.

I think Josie and Willow are both going to miss Katie when she moves to New Jersey and she's not around to help out. Especially since Josie has posted she has had "baby blues" this time around.

She is. They are already prepping her for it. She'll be the oldest unmarried sister right? At the Grand age of what, 15?

That poor girl will work hard for sure, but she can't do what Katie does for Josie. Josie and Katie era really close and while Katie helps with the children, I think that she is more a friend (AKA emotional support) for Josie. There is no replacement for that. I'm sorry to listen Josie has baby blues and I hope she has enough time to rest and Kelton understands her needs.

I was thinking that. Addalee could help with the kids but she can't be there for Josie in the same way. It also probably won't even be the same for Willow (at first) who seems to adore Katie, but Willow is young and will bounce back, however it will be adjustment for both her and Josie and I hope Josie is in a better place by December so Katie's absence won't be as much of a blow (and obviously they will still have chat and video calls).

      Yes, it's oral thrush!  Treating it with miconazole gel 4 times a day.  Whoever decided to flavour it chocolate orange is a flipping genius!
      Also needing 1 litre of electrolyte solution per day because my steroid load is killing my levels.  Tomorrow's the last day of prednisolone, thank goodness.  Fingers crossed it's done the job, because I'm still having the occasional wobble with breathing. 
      I see the practice nurse on Monday.

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Started prednisolone tablets today because the asthma inhaler isn't enough. Now I have a sore throat and feel like I have a cold coming.  Need the tablets because breathing isn't an optional body function.  Really don't need the tablets if I have an infection brewing.

      My husband commented this morning about how nice the weather is after a cold front moved in last night. Before I could stop him, he asked out loud if I thought this meant an early fall for us.
      That's like when you live up north and start talking about an early spring...
      Be careful, the weather gods are always listening.

      Grew up fundie-adjacent. My mother called herself a recovering fu**tamendalist, & she was not given to swearing. Thankfully she raised me as free of religious weirdness as she was capable. Her mother is all the regressive things -- racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic, ableist, fundamentalist Protestant nonsense, all of it, & longing for a golden past that never existed.
      I'm an atheist with a bit of an obsession about fundies, particularly of the Christian varieties cuz that's what I'm surrounded by. I've been reading this forum for well over a decade now & finally decided to make an account.
      Thanks for having me here.
