Counter Purity Movement: Trading One Dysfunction for Another ft. Justin Megna

In this groundbreaking episode, Rebecca Lemke interviews Justin Megna about a topic no one else has touched: the “Counter Purity Movement.”

The Counter Purity Movement is a phrase they have coined for the scorched-earth social landscape some trod following purity culture, which includes outright hedonism, abuse within recovery communities, and versions of Christianity manipulated to be more sexually permissive.

Justin and Rebecca discuss purity culture, the Counter Purity Movement, and some of the ways in which these cultures are two sides of the same coin. They talk about their own – sometimes painful – journeys in finding their way to a healthy, holistic approach to life, love, and Christianity.

They are in complete agreement that Jesus Christ should our all-in-all and any path that leads away from him, whether hyper-legalistic or licentious, should be rejected.

Missed Flights and Bili Lights

My little family and I were supposed to board a plane to California awhile back, but we missed the flight. We did end up making it to California in December though, for a podcast recording or two and live show.

I don’t want to get into details but we were all pretty broken up about it. Part of the issue was that we had to double back to try to find my son’s birth certificate. Between missing the flight, the season change, and the stress of digging through medical papers from birth, that day was pretty dark for me.

Live Show Recorded in California

In early December, our family was flown out to California for me to speak about purity culture at the Virtue in the Wasteland Christmas Party in addition to recording a podcast with them which you can find here. It was an amazing trip and I miss California and the folks from Legacy 1517 and ViW so much.

Here is the live recording of the show, I hope you enjoy the whole show.

They are such different people, from very different parts of a randomly confused United States. Each represents different demographics, that until last night when sweet home Alabama became the adult in the room, halting a cliff divide by a leary nation, perhaps not these three, but others like them may have taken it all the way. The trio walked in at separate times, all wanting to give something of themselves and needing to receive…

7 Self-Care Tips For Content Creators

7 Self-Care Tips for Content Creators.png

Content creation is rewarding, but it can be a draining profession to be in. This is especially true if you talk about vulnerable topics like mental health, addiction, abuse, etc. Some people will welcome your content with open arms and thank you for all that you do. Others will do their best to be the nastiest, most vile creation that has ever left a slimy trail all over your comment box.

If you talk about religion or politics on top of the other topics I mentioned, the latter might be what you deal with the most. It can be hard to subject yourself to seeing some of the worst sides of humanity on a regular basis. I find myself envious of my friends who do not have a Twitter or Facebook, let alone a blog! But I know that what I do is important to the people who need it the most. That said, I do have to make sure that I take care of my emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being in the process.

I firmly believe content creators need to practice self-care, and while this may look different for every person, here are some of the things I suggest.

Share the Link Of Your Favorite Blogger!

Dream Big, Dream Often

share_logoTom Slatin sent me a great idea via Twitter and I am going to do something a little different while on vacation. Here is the basic idea for this link share post:

  • I want you to leave a link to the blog which you love the most (not your own page!)
  • Reblog this post to help spread the love.
  • Leave a brief description of the page you love and why you love it!

This should be a ton of fun and is a great way to selflessly help another blogger.
