        1. yeah, I thought the pants-wearer was a dude, too. Totally skewed my process there for a minute.

  1. I didn’t look closely enough at first so I couldn’t decide: I thought the pants-wearer was a guy since the color scheme and foot wear apparantly fit everyone else’s general style (or lack thereof). However, if blue-pants person is female, she obviously is the visitor.

    Gotta love the uniformity – jeans, khakis, or floral prints are always to be found at fundy events.

    1. If this is a hayride you’d think someone would be in culottes. But either skirts or culottes is going to be uncomfortable sitting on hay. The pants wearer is the only one dressed appropriately for a hayride IMO.

  2. I was going to go with the 3rd from the left since she is wearing Crocs which could be considered “stylish” aka worldly.

    On second thought though I wouldn’t want Crocs and stylish mentioned in the same breath.

  3. The one on the far left is the visitor. I can tell by mood ring through her eyebrow and the “A for Anarchy” tattoo on the shaved side of her head.

  4. But #5 could be a fundy guy because I see white socks with dark pants.

    #1 is a definate hussy for having shoes with open heels.

    I would vote #2 Miss Fundystan.

    1. I would give far right my vote. She is, of course, on the far right (placing her in the correct physical position), she is obviously of better moral character than to wear denim for any occasion, and appears to be wearing “nylons.”

  5. I thought this was obviously the second from the right, but then I stepped back and looked longer. I have now concluded that none of them are truly fundy. The 2nd one from the left is out due to wearing pants and the rest of them are just playing the fundy game of appearances all while inwardly their hearts are dens of iniquity and lust. How do I know this? Easy, they let someone take a picture of them from the knees down. Such brazenness belies their true heart intentions.

    1. Were you there when our former pastor spoke about “panties” from the pulpit?
      My 6 year old son at the time, squealed loudly in the middle of the service…”Preacher Schaap said PANTIES!” giggle giggle… 😯 a horrific memory for sure.

      1. Or how about the one where he ranted on about “you girls going around and spreading your legs for every guy that walks by.” Try explaining that to your 5 yr old son!

        1. It’s a lot easier to spread your legs with a skirt— Sadly, most IFB-er girls agree!
          They wear their skirts to the bar and to the backseat of some random car, but they’re better than you because you’re wearing pants!

  6. Untill I realised the one in pants wasn’t a guy my vote was the one in the short skirt. My wife and I took our youth group to a weekend “Treasure Hunt” at a much larger church. Our assumption was that since some hunting would be involved casuall attire would be appropriate. Our entire group was in jeans. Gasp! The most memorable moment came as my wife, in jeans, was looking through one of thier busses, we were thinking of getting one, and I stood talking with some other YG leaders one guy said that he wasn’t aware of any Bible Churches in our area. I’m so unfundie that it took a minute to realise that I’d just been burned. 🙂

  7. At first I thought the pants one was a guy, until I realized no fundy male would ever DARE get that close to a female type. Let alone two of them at once. So anyhow.

  8. I was like most others. The pants were a male. Then he was waaaay too close to the females. You must have your Bible or a song book between the male & female at ALL times! The crocs, the open toed shoes, the short skirt…I really studied this one. Then it was obvious! The male was a female!

  9. Here’s my question, do any of these ladies ever stop in front of a mirror before they go out, smile at themselves, and think, “I look good today”? (Or would that be a sin?)

    Of course, if they don’t ever think that, I feel sorry for them — and if they do think that, I feel sorry for their alarming bad taste.

    1. My 16-yo niece went to the Wild’s a few weeks ago. She said that during the separate girls chapel one day that the speaker (a woman, of course) told the girls that if they wear something because they think they “look good” in it, that it is a sin. 🙄 Yeah, my niece doesn’t care. She definitely wears things because she thinks she looks good. She’s pretty used to being called a horrible sinner already, though. 😥 She’s a good kid. 🙂

      1. Please say you’re exaggerating? I honestly would have a problem sending my daughter if she would hear that sort of nonsense. Have they ever read Proverbs 31? Or the story of Esther? If a Christian woman happens to be lovely externally because God made her to be is it wrong to maintain that gift? Of course it CAN be a sin to obsess about how you look. I’d argue being too proud of blase’ modesty is equally sinful. Christian women will have Spirit led modesty develop over time but it’s firstly a heart issue and between believers it’s a grace issue. Their sanctimonious standards will never sanctify those girls, that’s what makes me sad/angry. There is no way that woman could have used a bible verse to support her stance and I’d like to ask her for one. It’s very dangerous to give a “thus saith the LORD” and misquote Him or add a handbook to pick up where they feel He left off. Wow, that really touched a nerve.

        1. Well, I don’t figure we will be sending our kids there. . .however our first child is only 5 weeks old, so we’ll see in a few years how things are going. Feel free to contact the Wilds and ask why their speaker would teach/preach that. I think my niece said it was Julie Herbster.

          This niece used to go to Christian school, so she has already heard it all. She is much happier home-schooling. (Her parents don’t want to send her to public school.) However, she still gets sent to the Wilds every year. This year I picked her up from camp and she stayed with us for two weeks. We have interesting discussions about things. My wife and I are very candid with her. Nothing is off-limits in discussion. I still worry about her, since she is still a kid, but I think she will turn out just fine.

  10. I swear the one second from the left is my sister! She dresses exactly like that…all the time. I’ve never understood why denim jumpers? Aren’t there more breathable fabrics to make these from? Why would you want to cover your body in a heavy, hot material? Sure, I wear jeans, but I wouldn’t want them head-to-toe…

    1. My sixth grad teacher said that a woman must suffer for beauty. (That was back in the days of girdles, stocking garters, and pinchy screw on or clip on earrings.) But in fundy land a woman must suffer as atonement for the sin of choosing to be born female. So no. No breathable fabrics, and any fabric that you don’t have to spend time and energy starching and ironing is also suspect.

  11. Sooo difficult. Except for number two and Miss Pants, they are all brazenly displaying their ankles. But number two is showing off her arms. I say they are all Jezebels!

  12. The only true fundy here is #6. She bears all the signs: “feminine” khaki skirt, “uniform” pantyhose, “dressy” loafers, “demurely” folded hands, and “ladylike” leg positioning. 🙄 The three brazen hypocritical hussies (#2, #3, and #4) are sitting with their legs open like they would normally wear pants if it wasn’t a totally fundy-sponsored event (that’s the kind of fundy I was :mrgreen: ). #1 is a casual fundy. #5 is a real (although fashion-impaired) human being.

    1. I was going with #6 as well, she was more dressy than the others, more formal skirt (the others were all denim), loafers instead of sneakers, and possibly nylons. To be fair, she looks nice, but the others look more comfortable for a hayride. 🙄

  13. This lack of fashion pains me. Even the clothes I’m lounging around the house in right this minute are more fashionable and attractive than all that unflattering denim. And I can’t even begin to talk about those shoes. If the idea is to keep men from lusting… I can’t speak for men, but I’d guess this is a slam dunk.

  14. So glad I can say I never had to wear a skirt on a hayride. My parents had a little common sense, and let us wear pants, much to the chagrin of our pastor, I’m sure. But since the hayrides were usually at our house, our tractor, our hay, he couldn’t complain too much. ❓

    And even when I was in the midst of fundyland, I wore a Levi jean skirt, white socks (NO nylons under the socks!) and white tennies.

    I’m making notes of crazy stuff coming out of the Wilds. That teacher should be ashamed.
