The Unfundamental Conversion
Header

I’m just a small blog, so don’t normally get that much disagreements voiced to my posts. But my post on Anna Duggar, not surprisingly, created a lot of controversial (for the controversial comments, check the cross-post comment sections on Homeschoolers Anonymous and No Longer Quivering).  In that post, I argued that we should leave Anna …

The downside of the cute, quiet  ATI-patriarchal-quiverfull life of the Duggar family is now all over mainstream media. While it’s somewhat of a relief to see the public realize that conservative homeschooling is not as innocent as it seems, as an ATi alum myself, it’s also gets very triggering and downright weary to hear the media mock my …

  For months, and for years, I have pleaded with the American public to stop glorifying the Duggar family and to get the Duggars off TV. It has pained me, indeed hurt me, to see a family who grew up in the same subculture as I did, make headlines. I have called 19 kids and …

Hi, everyone, I did an audio recording, where I argue that saying the Duggars are uber-godly or uber-evil cultivates an attitude that does not help free the Duggars. The recording is not perfect because I don’t have an edit button like I do in typing. For example, I forgot to mention that yes, it’s possible …

Recently one of the girls I once babysat called me on phone. She wanted to talk about something that happened in the past between us. I miss her and her family, but mostly, when I look back, I feel pain. You see, starting when I was 11 or 12, I was put in the place of …

A lot of people have pointed out how many Christian groups and churches are anti-gay. Even though these Christians love to say that they love the sinner and hate the sin, it does not remove the pain that a gay person has to face. If a gay teen comes out gay, the church will still …

After I heard that Jessa Duggar is now courting, I’ve struggled to find words. In a way, I’m happy for her. In a way, I’m always sad to see my peers trapped in patriarchy. But in the midst of those emotions, I don’t have anything to say to Jessa. This is her life, not a …

Duggars and Truman

The Truman Show is one of my favorite movies because the whole world just sits in their tubs, in their cafes, and in their homes watching a man growing up in a bubble. Truman is owned by a corporation; he is the star of a movie show, only he has no idea. The movie set …

The famous Duggar family in their book Duggars: 20 and Counting recounts their initial involvement in the homeschool world When Josh turned four, we decided he was read. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say we were ready. The fact was, I was so eager to begin, I just couldn’t stand to wait …

Bible and unfundamentlism

I recently read through the book The Duggars: 20 and Counting. I remember meeting the Duggars  at an ATI homeschool conference about 15 years ago.  Because I grew up under the same program the Duggars are involved in, there were a lot of ATI lines that jumped out at me in the book. I am …
