All Apologies

Girls & Guys,
I'm feeling pretty remorseful about the Sister Missionary post. From your emails and posted comments you feel strongly that it was way over the top. It certainly was and the ironic thing is I have quite a few close friends and family that have served as Sisters. It was very risky move, which had many unfavorable returns. Well, I took care of it. It's deleted, gone...forever. Moving on.

  1. I thought the Sister Missionary post was funny, and what made it even better was how many girls took offense to it. This is an entertaining blog, you cant possibly take this ish to heart. Lets be real when you ask the typical mormon guy if he would like to go on a date with an RM Sister, knowing nothing else about her, he might throw up in his mouth a lil bit. Sisters have a bad rep.

  3. so, were all the protests from women that served missions? i think that's pretty bias. as a chica myself, i happen to feel the same way about sister missionaries. while i applaud their commitment and testimonies, i still have reservations about befriending a girl who tells me she served. she might cramp my style and lump me in with the rest of the undesirables. ya know, guilty by association? no thanks.

  6. I would like to take out the girl above who dislikes former sisters as well. Glad us guys aren't alone in that! My roommate thought it was pretty risky, but I thought it was spot on - it's important that they talk about 'their study abroad' or what have you, but missions, I'm just not interested in hearing about - just like they weren't interested in hearing about mine.

  8. almost every single person that has commented above are ignorant, self-absorbed and rude. (And I'm a Sister that DID NOT serve a mission).

  10. I was a sister missionary and have been on dates where the guy didn't know and told me how much he ISN'T into RM girls. I have to say that I have never met a guy who honestly prefers and RM girl. Please revive the post to prevent potential futre sister missionaries from blindly making the same mistake as I did!

  11. LOVE the Blog, but I am honestly amazed by all the disdain for sister missionaries. I didn't get to read the post but from all the responses I am glad the post was removed. I have a feeling it was an out-dated misinformed reflection of Sis. RM's. All the ones I know stellar, talented, amazing and gorgeous - and I can say that without bias because I am not one of them.

  13. My wife is an RM. Most of her RM friends are all attractive, level-headed and married. Maybe the good ones get snatched up pretty quick, so on average the single Returned Sister Missionary population is a bit.. less-datable.

  14. Ok as no one else here has the balls to post who they are with there comments here goes.

    I never read the post much as i would have liked to. im a youngun (20 haven't left for my mission yet and male) I don't understand why a returned sister missionary is looked down upon? It almost makes me feel like you guys aren't willing to adapt as to how this world is changing... you guys are stating that because a sister serves a mission she is suddenly doomed to be single for life! i am shocked! this is, if anything, a self-fullfiled prophecy. ladies... don't listen to anything in this page. If you want to and you feel that a mission is where you should be... then go! go and don't worry about the chauvanist pigs (the male and female ones alike) that are trying to talk you out of it. If they aren't willing to take a second look at you after finding out you're an RM... Hey they weren't going to be worth the effort anyway in the long run. because if they can't accept you as an RM now then how are they going to accept you as an RM after your guys' couple mission... just chew on that one.

  15. Amen to deuce. And guess what? There are freakish returned MALE missionaries who are faggots who never get married who had crushes on their ZL's all the time too. SO, just to say that RM sisters will stay single is ludacrious! There are plenty of obnoxious elders who try to dominate just cuz they served missions. I think Sister missionaries ROCK! I am not one of them, btw, but I think the girls' comments about not liking Sisters was lame. You're probably just jealous of the amazing talents, spiritual wisdom, and toughness that they gain. My mom was a missionary and I will tell you that there is no one like her! Her mission prepared her for motherhood more than anything else could.

  16. WOW!!! I am shocked and disgusted by the attitude of both males and females out there who have apparently waged a war of hatred against female RMs. I don't understand it. I served on Temple Square a few years ago. I'm 28 and single and am so grateful for the wonderful experiences I had on my mission. I am single because I haven't met a man who is worthy of my love. I actually feel sorry for the girls who never serve missions. They have missed out on so many wonderful experiences and blessings. OH, and btw, I am HOT.

  17. In response to Deuce, considering you haven't gone on a mission yet, your exposure and experience with sister missionaries would be close to nothing. Therefore, your opinion on the situation is borderline worthless. Go be a District Leader over a sister missionaries for several months and see if your mind changes. Keep in mind though: two of these sisters were some of the best missionaries in the mission. The rest...not so much. It is the "not so much" that we can't stand. And frankly, the majority fall into the "not so much" category.

    Disgusted? Hatred? "I am single because I haven't met a man who is worthy of my love...OH, and btw, I am HOT." I certainly hope this is a joke. I am tempted to not even respond because it's set up too well to be real. But I'll give in. Maybe its your blatant arrogance that keeps you single. A man "worthy" of your love? Please. Maybe no guy wants to be worthy of your love. They are busy being worthy of someone else's. Anyone can say they are hot. Your opinion on the matter (while confidence is a plus, though I would label this pride) doesn't matter. Maybe you could've learned something from the post instead of clinging to the things that obviously aren't working.

    "My mom was a missionary and I will tell you that there is no one like her!" Well, Halle-freakin'-lujah. Most guys say their mom is the best ever. My mom can beat up your mom and she converted her non-member husband without ever going on a mission. My sister went on a mission. The one that didn't go is cooler. "Her mission prepared her for motherhood more than anything else could." Yeah. Nothing like hanging out with another girl your age, knocking doors, and bike riding to prepare for diaper changing...
    "You're probably just jealous of the amazing talents, spiritual wisdom, and toughness that they gain." If you are a guy, you sound like one of the fags you described. If you are a girl, you sound jealous yourself.

    Maybe you people need to realize this is based on stereotypes and shouldn't get offended so easily. If you are the stereotypical RM sister, maybe you should take a few pointers so that you can save both you and us from yourself.

  18. All this petty judgment is part of why I stopped being mormon. Quit throwing accusations and stereotypes around, grow up, and just be your best selves.

  19. Is there anywhere I can read this? Does anyone have a copy of it? Sounds good...

  20. Seriously? You're offended???February 13, 2009 at 3:50 PM

    I really want to read this, can you please put it up again? I'm new to this blog and I am loving every minute of it. My husband probably feels the same way as your post, because he is totally against it, so I would love to read it!!! My sister and best friend went on missions too, so ya of course I think it can be a good thing, my husband and I ust think it is lame for girls to go if they have an opportunity to get married...if I told my husband I was going on a mission when we were dating he would have dropped me right then and there (which is fair, what kind of signal is that sending?) So I"m with Anonymous right above me,can I get a copy??? But as for Anonymous above that, I'm sorry that you left the church because you were offended. I'm with all of the other posters here who say, if you are offended you are TOO serious! You can't take any of this offensively, obviously it is over the top!! it makes a point to the extreme but it is funny with some truth to it. Lighten up. Plus it's not being judgmental, go shave your upper lip!!!
