corporal punishment; fet stuff; Quiverfull; religion and shit 

So I'm reading an article on the Quiverfull movement and how spankings were a big part of that culture, and my parents were definitely into corporal punishment (though not directly in the Quiverfull movement, they were in adjacent evangelical movements), and I'm kind of wondering -- is my recent appreciation for impact play somehow related to that? :spinthink:

oof I hear bad things about the quiverfull movement. Here's a therapy idea: a table outside a church that has a sign reading "Believe in God ? We can fix that."

@abbaxi Having as many kids as possible in a developed nation as we approach humanity's inevitable end as a result of global warming seems so morally repugnant to me that I honestly don't think I'd have enough common ground to want to bother convincing such a person otherwise, ngl. 😣

...well, the crippling cost of raising kids means that most of them aren't Dugger level famous, and quickly find that capitalism is at direct odds with having as many kids as you can. Absolutely destructive poverty that spans generations and feelings of being an object without consent are what the former quiverfulls seems to speak of...take heart: at least it's so destructive that the pain becomes self-evident to many.

@abbaxi Yeah, this. It feels like it's kind of the logical conclusion of the Pro-Life moment, insomuch protecting the concept of "child" is more important than the reality of actually raising one.

I hate entertaining that debate, I have no desire to ever have kids so am fairly ambivalent what people do with theirs. The broader issue of bodily autonomy does concern me tho, and that crowd loves to stake claim on what's not theirs...
