    S09.E02 Jinger Has a Baby

    okay I've seen the movie many times and I've never noticed the chemistry either. More like Gothard said all electronic media was evil or something like that. It helps that the movie was before JB's and Michelle's time.

    S04.E10: Super Queen Grand Finale

    My favorite part of the lip sync was the wig reveal. I love that in DanielleC's video they're watching it in delayed time so Casino (movie of the night has started behind them). They both get a full check so it's all good. Condragulations to Trinity the Tuck and Monet X Change so happy for them!

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    There are different kinds and levels of allergies. Lauren has never claimed to be celiac, which is (to the best of my knowledge) an autoimmune disease that is triggered by a gluten allergy. She claims that she is allergic to gluten to what degree I'm not sure. Some people can foods they are allergic to in small quantities, others need to avoid the food altogether.

    S04.E10: Super Queen Grand Finale

    Why is Monet X Change so excited about Todrick Hall? Holy ****! Monique was an anti-gay seminarian who weighed 300 pounds! She really has changed since then and I'm glad she is able to be herself. The smoke makes it hard to see the choreography. Way too much smoke! Monet and Monique got the memo to wear blonde wig for the hall of fame like (Chad, Alaska, and Trixie Mattel). Interesting that Trinity didn't wear a blonde wig. That ending!!! Really? (Although it did make me smile.)

    Dr. Pimple Popper

    Re: the guy with the extra nose skin who didn't go off his blood thinners. I'm having trouble explaining, but I've known people like that. It's possible he just forgot to ask his doctor, but even that suggests that to him it wasn't a big deal. Which I think was the real problem. I don't think he really understood why he needed to be off his blood thinners. To some people, they're not going to call a doctor for what doesn't that seem a big deal to them. Or they assume that if they see one doctor that doctor can handle/fix everything.
  6. See to me Josie's "freedom and independence" wasn't the marriage, but the cosmology license. She could have moved out, worked for a while and lived by herself. In the fundie world, marriage has nothing to do with freedom and independence. I'm not against having kids either or marriage for that matter, but getting married, having babies, taking care of little ones and having no free time for considering your options is less freedom than living single even at home. Getting rid of the kool-aid that contraception is evil is also hard for people who were raised that way. Josie and Alyssa were the most likely to leave fundiedom imo, and they both got married at 19. If they been living at home for a longer time, they might have just moved out into the real world.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I tend to agree with this although I'm not sure how far along she was. I though she was due around when Jessa is due so after the first month of marriage. It is very hard to rid oneself of the kool-aid that family planning and birth control are morally wrong*. Both Josiah and Lauren were raised IBLP and they will have difficulty deciding to do things differently. *Editing to add: There is no wrong with either family planning or birth control. People should make whatever decisions are right for them.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    Both Joy and Kendra have said they are leaving how many kids they are going to have up to God. Joy said it before she got married and seems to have realized they need to take it slow since the c-section. When Joy and Kendra and Jinger were asked about it during a joint interview session, Joy said "she and Austin love children so they would see." Kendra said "we're leaving it up to God."
  9. JB and Michelle don't care if it's #1 or #3 or #12 for the parents. They care that's it's grandchild #13 for themselves.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Like most of Amy's clothing, Jill's shirt look very 90s. I can't come up with a reference for it, but it does. The fabric seems deliberately crinkly.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    @Churchhoney Actually they've known the Duggars for a long time. The Swansons are IBLP. They've met at conferences. Lauren's father, Dwain Swanson, runs a ministry with Michelle's nephew. So she married Josiah, because he's IBLP royalty and probably was a little into the television side as well. I agree they're okay with sharing it with the world. Not everyone cares about sharing pain publicly.

    The Duggars: In the Media and TLC

    I'm laughing at myself, because I always expect there to be Duggar news, especially first day of the new season. It's most likely a courtship although it wouldn't surprise if there were other pregnancy announcements.

    Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    When Josie was born, Michelle said she thought she could have three or four more if God was willing.

    S04.E09: Sex and the Kitty Girl

    I was surprised to enjoy this episode despite missing Manila. The challenge was pretty good. The real winner was whoever wrote Sex & the Kitty Girl 3; it was so much better than Breastworld. It was one of my favorite acting challenges. I love Monet X Change, but she was the weakest tonight. I was hoping they would pick Naomi to go home. I thought Latrice was actually good in the challenge and I enjoyed her performance.

    Gimme That Old Time Religion

    FJ talked a lot about Harris. He was kind of a male Sarah Mally raised in this lifestyle and basically parroting what he was raised to believe. But his documentary makes him out to be the biggest victim of the book and is really about him. It doesn't pay as much attention to how it affected so many others. Some of the participants say they regret being in his documentary.
