Is it normal to take all of your possessions with you when you move to another country?

I feel like it isn't.

That's probably because normal people don't have a fan base mostly made up of sheep who donate enough money to them to make moving all of your possessions to another continent feasible.

Does it feel like your love life has gotten a bit stale? Do you suspect that your partner is no longer attracted to you? Why not do what the ancient assyrians did and smear crushed Lobsta Fahts on their cock before applying a thin layer of Iron Dust on your Junk. They won’t be able to resist you.
It feels like they're fleeing the country. What's the extradition laws in Brown People Land?

They need a few changes of clothes, some baby stuff, cookware, a couple of cots, phone chargers for their electronics/laptops/whatever, a sack full of Bibles and anything else can be acquired on site. They could pare that down further if they tried and had any contacts there to help them find stuff. Or I guess, "lol, let's bring our full-size American fridge, washer/dryer set, TV and gently caress it, all three sofas too," is reasonable if you're retarded.

They wouldn't even need to pack that many clothes. They could maybe help the local economy and buy stuff there. They can even keep up that whole thing where Derrick can wear what he wants while Jill has to dress modestly. Men there tend to dress in modern casual styles while the women wear these beautiful long woven skirts. There are regional differences, too, so if you know what to look for you can tell what part of Guatemala you are in by differences in the women's skirts and blouses.




The people there are lovely. I hate to think of the Duggers going there and acting all holier-than-thou.

I've got a pocket full of cheese🧀, and a garden full of trees🌴.

As bad as I feel for it, I have a smidgen of sympathy for the Duggars and their ilk.

Because reading about 'blanket training', and the 'keep smiling' poo poo, they are constantly suffering through an inner hell where if they let teh happy facade drop for a second they will be punished, (they are probably also beating themselves up for committing the sin of unhappiness), and are so terrified to do or think anything, anything other than what they are told, that they are paralysed with fear, self loathing, and repressed desires. Add in a bucketful of fundie Christian crazy, the insane sexual mores that they live under, and a pinch of isolation then you get truly hosed up individuals.

How in the name of merciful gently caress do they survive, let alone function in the outside world? This is a legitimate question, because I cannot see them doing so without major mental collapse. This is why they huddle together in incestuous, (Josh Bob), groups and marry within the community and stay at home etc. If they are women tyhen they aren't allowed outside inm the first place, but for the men too, it's safer amongst your own when you don't know what to do, and are scared of doing anything other than what you have known.

So I feel bad for them, coz this is no way to live a life. To have your choices and your agency stripped from you, and to be imprisoned in a community that, (if you are a woman), regards you as a baby mill and property, less valuable than reputation.

So, and I know this is drawing a long long bow and I am giving them far too much credit and giving them sympathies that they don't deserve, but I think that the Dillard's paid South American vacation, (sorry missionary work), is a good thing for them. They get to see people outside their community, people of other cultures and communities. Hell, even learning Spanish will force them to think differently about the world.

I mean gently caress the way they got other people to pay for it, and gently caress the way they are going to sneer at the locals and tell them, "You aren't the proper brand of Christian". But it may change their lives and open their eyes, which can only be a good thing.

I don't think being exposed to other cultures does much good if you're going there with the built-in mindset that these poor souls are living some kind of half-existence devoid of all of the comfort of their specific brand of Christianity. You pity them because you're looking at it from an outside perspective, but the Duggars pity others because they themselves do not have that outside perspective. Everything in their little bubble is the good and proper way to do things. Some of them probably have doubts and of a brood of 20+ children there will certainly be at least one or two apostates (likely the youngest ones who have had to grow up with the shadow of scandal over their entire lives, another pitiable thing.) But there's no way these missionary goobers will come away from their work with anything but inflated egos and condescending pity for the poor brown folk.

2/3rds of the kids who have grown up and left the family home sure as hell can't - one lives a double life banging paid pornstars whom he treats like poo poo and the other can't exist without taking handouts from her family's gullible followers.

If that ratio keeps up 12-13 of them are destined to be colossal fuckups later in life :munch:

Another bit of shittiness pointed out by someone on the freejinger site is that Grandma Duggar currently lives in their "guest suite" which looks to be about a 10x10 room that opens directly into the laundry room.



Conventionally, the only bedroom that you have to walk through the laundry room to access are maid's quarters. Way to honor thy mother, Jim Bob.

I have this fantasy that the kindly local Catholic priest sits down with the Duggar "missionaries" on the regular and gradually eases them out of the cult, maybe with a Jesuit friend or two visiting occasionally to discuss their faith

Looks like it is just a cutesy infantile name for a mud room. The place where everyone leaves their coats and boots.

There is another bathroom attached to the play room. Weirdly the one next to the dining room and the second bathroom in the girls' area don't seem to have sinks. :rowdytrout:

I'm sure it's the quietest room in the house. It just happens to be a bonus that the matriarch is reminded of her place every time she goes to or from her room.

Of course, if they wanted to be a little more considerate of their guests (perhaps even treating them the way the bible instructs) they would probably have put the laundry next to the pantry/storage area and had the guest room share a hall with Michelle and Jim Bob's offices and a downstairs powder room.

Gotta give it to them, it's a bold design choice to minimize dining table to shitter distance like they did.

What is her place? Jim God forbid she has to walk by some laundry machines to her own little fortress of solitude away from the cameras and crying kids. She gets a free ride from church donatin' idiots and TLC. Not such a bad life, IMO.

Well, when you see 7 people and 4 beds, it's pretty natural to wonder what's going on when people sleep at night. Especially when you're dealing with the levels of crazy these people have.

This thread unfortunately made me read up on this "blanket training" poo poo these people are up to.

Even if you ignore the numerous babies that died from it due to their injuries, the book explicitly states to spray your 6 month old with a cold outdoor water hose to show baby was wrong for showing interest in shiny objects. :stonk:

Yeah I wonder why a baby died from hypothermia?? Not to mention punishing an infant for showing curiosity in their surroundings. :wtf:

Is there any reason idiots buy a book on baby training that's created by people with absolutely zero medical or scientific training on the subject? Even if you were an idiot poo poo parent, why trust their word over anyone else's?

That's 100% accurate assessment of those forums, but it's still pretty lovely to live in a 10,000 sq ft house and move the family matriarch into the literal 10x10 maids quarters. Especially when their claim to fame is a strict adherence to a religion that requires you to honor your parents.

Considering the lack of space for so many children and the fact that their oldest son molested their daughters, it's a solid question to ask. Did the Duggars design this house themselves? Because separating the boys and girls rooms and having the parents bedroom so close to the girls' room seems to be an implicit admission that there was something very wrong with their oldest son from day one.

Wasn't the design to have a girls room at the opposite end of the house with the only entrance being through the master bedroom literally the main reaction when they found out Josh was duggering? Like *there all fixed! We quarantined the harlots so no more temptation!* :banjo:

tbf the bible does explicitly say that you should pray at home in a closet and that going to church to pray is bad and you won't get into heaven if you do
that's like the one and only thing in the bible the duggars got right. or at least they did until they got on tv so everyone could see how christian they were.
