Trace Bates 2: Dating A Poor Persecuted Refugee with A Purpose?

Please know that I am JOKING about Lydia being a refugee.

 

By the way, I am sponsoring a Mexican immigrant married to an American woman with two American children. Since he came here as a teen without proper papers (though he has been paying proper taxes for over a decade and he owns a home), he cannot use his marriage to claim residency. If Lydia is indeed undocumented, marrying Trace won't impact her status. She will have to return to Germany and file appropriate immigration papers and wait for those papers to be approved.

This outfit and pose would be ridiculous anywhere. But on a beach? In Delaware?? Rehoboth, ancestral home of the cowboy…

I agree! And in Rehoboth, the people who think he looks hot are very likely to be guys!

I don't get the cowboy schtick with these guys. 

Cowboy = manly masculine man. All man. Not a sissy soyboy. A command man. Taking charge. A provider and protector. A god-fearing country boy.

All that manliness on Rehoboth Beach.

Literally my strongest association with cowboys is Brokeback Mountain, so. 

Technically they were shepherds. Same hats, though.

Manly man. I see. Because manly men pose on the beach looking tough. Manly men live off TV income. Manly men live rent-free with their mom and dad as adults.

Looks like Trace is getting ready to go public with Lydia. He didn’t tag her or show her face but by the blonde hair (and previous speculation) I’m pretty sure it’s her in this pic

I agree. Bates relationships are never a surprise. They always hint at it before they make an announcement. I actually prefer this. I hate how the Duggars are so secretive.

Trace put up a pic of them at a game (from behind). They're holding hands. No way could a bates girl get away with that 

Several of the Bates girls held hands before engagement. Katie was probably the only one that didn’t now that I think of it. Maybe Erin as and Michael as well? But the rest definitely did

I thought they werent in a courtship but yeah I guess they could be already or be like Lawson and not really have one. Still hate their double standards

Only double standards here is that she is wearing pants, but most of the Bates girls have holded hands before marriage and even front huged and there is a chaperone there because someone is taking the photo.

What Trace is doing is known as a 'relationship soft launch' on social media. Where people will post photos or refer to their 'buddy' without tagging their username or showing their face. It's like vaguebooking, but with pictures. The younger generation seem to do this prior to making the relationship 'official' on social media.

I have younger co-workers who have opened my eyes to this being a thing... I was previously unaware, having been with my husband for a few years now - it wasn't a thing when we were dating!

I get introducing a partner slowly if you life off  your social media or if you have actual fans that are crazy enough to look up people just because they appear in your pictures. 
But apart from that….. it sounds completely pointless? I don’t get it.

This makes me feel so old. I remember way back when my husband and I started dating in 2007 and I just changed my relationship status on FB to “in a relationship.” That was it. I’m sure only a few people noticed. FB wasn’t as popular back then.

On a side note, fundie wiki has this about the Romeike family: "In August 2008 the Romeike Family left Germany, to come to America because they were being persecuted for homeschooling their children. [...] facing fines, forcible removal of their children and possible imprisonment due to this" (emphasis mine).

I mean, yeah, that's what they claim. But I'm pretty sure they weren't persecuted for homeschooling. They refused to comply with a law that applies to everyone and had to face the consequences, which yes, may have included fines. I checked an where they lived, imprisonment is not an option. And it is very, very unlikely, that anyone would have forcibly removed their children because of the homeschooling, unless there was evidence of abuse or neglect. Plus, as a number of people here have pointed out, they could  just have moved across the border to Austria and homeschooled there.

The text on fundie wiki appears to have been copied straight from the HSLDA website, so I guess the lack of objective facts is not surprising.

Ah, I feel like we have enough nutjobs in Austria, I'm happy that we're missing out on a few. I think it is also a bit harder to be a religious freakshow around here. People are religious (my parents are case and point, the go to church every sunday and my mum is involved in church too), but the majority are not that nutty (compared to some of the fundamentalists we talk about here). I haven't really heard about churches not following covid-measures, and even my mom, who usually goes to church every sunday, said she'd avoid church for now, due to the rising numbers.. I also think the insane kinda religion these people practice (not completely sure on what they believe in, but if they are friendly with the bates, it most likely won't be something normal) isn't too popular here.

Also, we have enough nutjobs as it is here. Cases are skyrocketing, hospitals in some areas are doing triage, I'm happy that I can stay home for now and am vaccinated. Ivermectin (?) is sold out in many places. Apparently, many horses have issues right now.. 🤣🙄

@BeccaGrim yeah, when I read it in the news, I was torn between laughter and disbelief. But since I am really getting sick of this whole pandemic and people who think taking horse dewormer or drinking bleach is helpful, while also thinking that the vaccine would be harmful and tracking them, I decided to just laugh about it. Most people who are afraid to be tracked etc love to share their location on Facebook, whenever they can.

I really can't with people anymore..

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
