    a big deal about the clothes people put on their kids, but my youngest daughter would go ballistic if I tried to make her go out in public wearing something like that.

    None of those kids look very happy...can't say that I blame them.

    •  And her clothes match her doll. (1+ / 0-)

      Just to be clear, we are not ragging on children in this diary. We're ragging on future Republicans.

      I'm in the I-fucking-love-this-guy wing of the Democratic Party!

        and mental abuse right wing extremist parents heap on them--maybe once they reach adulthood, they'll break free.

        my clothes with my doll. But...I would never have gone out in public wearing that dress even if my mother threatened a grounding, lol. She made me wear some pretty bad clothes as a kid, all of them ill-fitting hand-me-downs from my sister who herself got them as hand-me-downs from other families...but nothing THAT awful.

        Those are the kind of clothes fundies put their kids into to make themselves look good in front of other fundies. Nothing more, nothing less. Kids are a huge status symbol in fundamentalist circles, but only kids who are polite, can recite the bible, and dress as homely as possible.
