Welcome to Scarlet Letters. The purpose of this blog is to explore the problems of the Christian homeschooling subculture (where I was raised); the Christian patriarchy movement; and women’s and gender issues within Christianity. It may, however, digress occasionally into other topics that interest me and (usually) relate to my main concerns.
NOTE: This comment policy is a work in progress and will probably be modified in the future as I continue to navigate this area.
Feedback and discussion are always appreciated, so please feel free to comment. All comments are moderated. In general, I do not block negative or contrary comments and am willing to engage in a discussion/debate. There are, however, a few important exceptions, as follows:
1. If I already know you to be a troll from other blogs, you will be blocked.
2. If you behave like/transform into a troll on this blog, you will first be put in “time out,” allowed to return at my discretion, then blocked permanently if behavior does not improve.
3. If you (favorably) post any comment or link to any page supporting, encouraging or advocating criminal activity or hate speech (white supremacism, anti-Semitism, etc.), your comment/link will be taken down and an explanation posted in the thread, and you will be put in permanent moderation. Exceptions may be granted for kinist and Neo-Confederate material depending on the circumstances.
4. Alex Jones’ infowars.com and Mike Adams’ naturalnews.com are both hopelessly infested with conspiracy theories and as such will not be treated as reliable sources or dignified with (favorable) links at Scarlet Letters. Favorable links to these sites will be redacted from comments and the poster asked to provide an alternative citation for their view. Rule #4 is non-negotiable.
