TLC is sort of a cross between the Lifetime and Discovery channels. Much like how AMC quit showing "American movie classics" quite some time ago.

Or how MTV and VH1 stopped playing music years ago? They've ALL switched to reality shows (although MTV started it).

And they are so annoyingly addictive. WHY oh WHY would I watch Rock of Love every week religiously- i have no effing clue - cause I think Bret Michaels is a scumbag. Anyway, it's baffling

This has to be the biggest "Who cares?" ever. I don't understand why these people are even a little bit famous.

There are no options for her except to be a stay-at-home mom in a near-constant state of pregnancy. Even the rhythm method is off limits. Needless to say, this places a huge financial strain on most Quiverfull families.

Quiverfull families tend to follow the "neo-patriarchy" movement, as well. That is, the husband is the head of the household and the wife should not assert her opinions in any way, nor even harbor thoughts that disagree with her husband's decrees. They also practice a bizarre form of historical revisionism. According to them, even the Jamestown colonists were pious missionaries. They also hold a lot of ludicrously prudish beliefs. For instance, it is highly immoral for a woman to wear pants, or to apply chapstick in the presence of a man.
Wow. Jaded much?

Seriously though...I have a friend who's a quiverfull wife. She wears pants, applies chapstick and even lipstick in public and has (until she just recently sold it) owned a clothing business. She's got a mind of her own, and she's one of the kindest ladies I've ever known. So maybe your experience is just skewed. I don't know.

^^^ There's a lot of overlap between quiverfull and neo-patriarchy, but I didn't mean to imply that they're the same thing.

I've been following neo-patriarchy blogs for a few years. They're an...interesting subculture, to say the least. One popular series of articles is from a female college student who tries to convince girls that college is a terrible place that they should stay far away from.
