Blog Week FAQ

1) Where/How can I join in the blog-week?
You can submit a guest post (anonymously, or not) to either Starfury or myself (via contact forms) and we’ll post it during the week. You can also write a post on your own blog, and add your post to the link-up widget we’ll be integrating on Between Black and White (and if I can get it to work here, it should show up here too).
2) When are we posting?
We’re posting any time during the week of May 20th – May 26th. I’ll be sharing my story in three parts, here, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Between Black and White will be sharing stories/guest posts all week, and I’ll have Tues/Thurs/Sat for guest posts as well.
3) How can I share?
I’ve started using the hashtag #teenpactersspeakup on twitter, you can share via ALL the things, and if you’re using twitter, feel free to use the hashtag (or think of a better one and let me know, my hashtag skills aren’t awesome).
 
P.S. This is the first blog-week that I’ve actually orchestrated so if you have any other questions on how it works let me know and I’ll come up with an answer. 😉

Ex-Teenpact Blog Week

I was talking to a friend a while ago, and we were comparing notes on our experiences with TeenPact. It feels like such a taboo subject to talk about, I’m actually almost scared to, which honestly, is why I am – because if this one thing from my past has this much hold on me for no real reason (when I’m open about everything else) I should probably talk about it.
So on the 20th-26th, we’re doing an Ex-Teenpacters exposĂ©. Because TeenPact is just another piece in the conservative christian “culture wars” machine that teaches (or in my case, because most of this wasn’t new, emphasizes) the lies and the wrongness of my past as right and perpetuates misogynistic theology (among other things).
Guest/Anonymous submissions are welcome and Starfury at Between Black and White will be posting them over the course of the week. If you’d like to post on your own blog (like I am) we’ll have a link-up widget over there as well.
I have a feeling that our two stories aren’t the only ones out there, and I think it’s time that we give those a voice.
