Things Head Coverings Discourage

Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler wanted to burn her wedding dress upon the finalization of her divorce, but then the patriarchy stepped in:

” ‘I wanted to remove all things from our marriage from our house,’ she told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. ‘Photos in the attic, ring in the safe (but probably going to sell it) and the dress I wanted to burn.’

It was her dad and brother who suggested upping the ante and adding explosives [CC: 20 lbs. of Tannerite] into the equation. […]

‘To me, the dress represented a lie. I wanted to have a divorce party to burn the dress,’ she said.”

Some facts from the article that stood out to me:

  • Hyphenated name
  • She’s 43, and was married for 14 years. So, married at 29, and then got tired of it when she felt the loss of her beauty.
  • Wearing a vulgar shirt that says, “Hey Y’all, I’m Single AF”
  • Has access to wealth and enough land to blow up a dress from 200 yards away
  • Note the “tough” cowgirl aesthetic
  • Since she divorced him, it was her lie which she celebrated.
  • The ring, like all her valuable wedding tackle, is for sale.

This is what the values of rural Texas offer in the modern world, to our shame.

  1. Her face reminds me of that other useless, hyphenated train wreck, Lourdes Torres-Manteufel.

    Look how many of her co-religionists are gathered for that sacramental mass and communion!

    A pastor I like once said to a roomful of homeschoolers, “Some of y’all are going to be disappointed, because Heaven is a city, y’all!”

    Yeah, that’s what I tried to allude to when I wrote, “but then the patriarchy stepped in”.

  3. Cane Caldo,

    Thanks, I missed that, but now I understand.

    Also, your insight to begin modesty with the head covering is brilliant, it should be a foundational principle.

  4. This reminds me of that movie line about “inconceivable” that keeps making the rounds.

    ‘You keep giving yourselves divorce parties. I don’t think they mean what you think they mean’.

    Her face reminds me of that other useless, hyphenated train wreck, Lourdes Torres-Manteufel.

    “Teufel” means “devil” in German, and “man” means “man”. So, that chick’s second last name (Manteufel) means “man-devil”.

    Which is weirdly appropriate.

    I wonder how many people who actually pay attention to their surroundings (to say nothing of contemporary infotainment media, even the so-called “family friendly” kind) still seriously believe that Rural America is any less of a moral cesspool than the urban/suburban part. Those who still truly do believe that probably shouldn’t be allowed to be living alone and unsupervised, for their own safety.

    Since I’m not going to read that linked article (thank you, Cane, for sparing us the need), I’d like someone to PLEASE confirm for me that this women didn’t breed any innocent children with her unfortunate husband.

    The crime rates alone prove – empirically – that the cities are far worse off morally than the rural areas.
