Fight for Together

Fight for Together

Postby Tiger27 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 3:03 pm

Hello, I have been a long time lurker but finally made an account today because I think I have discovered the nuttiest family on Youtube! I am honestly still appalled by their content two days after watching a few videos. I was surprised they didn't already have a thread because they are whack jobs and provide so much material to discuss!

First, I had seen this family come over for dinner with the Schmovies family once or twice and Tim always says to go check out their channel. Never did but figured they were probably another relatively boring, vanilla, run of the mill, Christian, homeschool vlogger family form Ohio. Boy was I wrong.

This video popped up in my recommendations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44v1JV-OSJY The whole family runs an entire marathon together, including their 6 year old. I was both shocked and impressed. One thing that stood out to me and should have been a warning sign was that the 6 year old has to see a doctor at the end of the race and it is mentioned that this is the first time she has ever seen a doctor. Like, what??! I decided to watch a few more videos. Thats where things really went down hill.

Side note: Their names are: Ben (DAD), Kami (MOM), Dove (16), Eden (14), Seven (12), Memory (10), Filia (6), Rainier (1) ....lol this should have been a red flag too.

I started with their most recent Q&A and it's about as much as I could stomach. The husband basically states that he does not believe in pregnancy tests and doesn't want the wife to take one despite her thinking she may be pregnant. He describes pregnancy tests as a luxury and doesn't understand the point of them. The wife clearly does want to take one but is submissive to the husband and they compromised to take a test in two weeks. It was bizarre. They ramble on about all sorts of other things and then got to a question about drinking and smoking during pregnancy. They said they prefer to follow common sense over medical advice and remind viewers that in the 50's, doctors actually promoted smoking. She then says she plans to keep drinking around 3 glasses of alcohol a week and smoke 3 cigars a week (and maybe more if on vacation). I was shocked. What freaking ignorant, selfish assholes!! To blatantly deny science and known facts and put your future children in harms way like that...people like this irritate me to no end. It's a miracle all their children have turned out okay (as far as we know). They go on to discuss their whacky views on religion and healthcare (lack of) and all sorts of other strange topics, including sex. It was painful for me to watch.

A few more videos in, I realized the dad is a recovering sex-addict who openly talks about his struggles with that. He "relapsed" and watched porn for an hour a few months back and made a video about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ayj9tFVFAXs&t=247s There's all sorts of videos about sex on the page. I was really shocked by this after assuming they were somehow similar to the ultra conservative Schmoyers. I don't have an issue with sex being discussed but it's just odd to me to have a video about your porn addiction or makeup sex with your wife right next to a video of your 10 year old daughter vlogging.

They also have a ton of videos addressing "hate" comments that I couldn't bother to watch but I am sure they are filled with all sorts of bizarre tidbits. Other random facts...they homeschool (I question the validity of their homeschooling though) and are taking Hebrew lessons as a family 5 days a week. They don't follow a specific region, just follow Jesus. None of their videos are monetized but a ton of time seems to go in to editing them. He mentioned in the Q&A that the videos felt sort of like a religion and ministry of his own and he'd like to build on that more. They believe sibling relationships are more important than anything else including peer relationships and focus on doing everything together as a family (hence, Fight for Together).

They have some redeeming qualities...like the marathon thing was pretty cool. But none of that matters to me when they hold such ignorant beliefs about health and science. The husband appears to run things in the marriage and I don't like that either. Has anyone else watched and have opinions on them?? If you haven't you should go check them out because I'm sure theres all sorts of juicy stuff to gossip about.

I haven't watched in some time because I was pretty turned off by all their ridiculous antics. I was kind of sad no one ever joined in on this thread...there is just so much craziness to discuss! Anything new in their lives..are they pregnant again yet?

If people would only watch a week of this vlog, they would know that it is great for this gossip site! They aren't pregnant yet, but they certainly talk about their sex life enough. I wish Ben would cut his greasy long hair. They've been taking extravagant trips this summer to Israel, Mexico, and New York City. Ben likes to claim that they live modestly, but they certainly spend a ton of money. He is so arrogant! I can't imagine living with him.

Those are some interesting names. Seven makes me wonder if the parents are Seinfeld fans...

I saw this thread and decided to check them out. The first thing that came to mind when I saw them was white trash. I hope that doesn't offend anyone, but that's what I thought when I saw them. And I guess he is only half-white, but idc. I don't like the names, they are ridiculous, like Seven? No. Also that drinking and smoking while pregnant is disgusting, I hope they don't have more kids they could potentially harm by doing that. I watched their New York City vlogs because I live near the city and I love going, so I was interested to see it from other people's perspective. But not theirs lol. They were so whiny and annoying especially the mom. The Statue of Liberty vlog, for example. They complained it wasn't great cause it was too touristy. Like, what were you expecting. I don't care if they spend their money traveling, I think it's awesome and one of the best investments but I can't with them. The preaching is annoying too.

But I'll probably keep watching just out of curiosity hahaha

My first impression was "trash" as well. And the mom has absolutely no personality or expression in her face (which I can relate to, my face looks stone cold unimpressed 24/7). She just doesn't keep me entertained whatsoever. The drinking and smoking while pregnant pisses me off and tells me that they're morons. I don't think I'll be able to continue watching them, nothing about them draws me in.

I agree with the trash thing...maybe because one of the first videos I watched was them sitting on their back porch in grimy clothes (and I'm pretty sure no bra) talking about philosophical hippy nonsense and smoking and drinking during pregnancy. I don't care what color you are, if you think that is okay, you deserve the title trash.

Anyone watching this shitshow? Hiking the Appalachian trail with a 2 year old? Can’t be good for his legs/hips to be cooped up all day. In an earlier vlog they asked the children if they wanted to do the AT and all of them said they didn’t want to do a thru hike. Making your unwilling children do something that most adults cannot accomplish is bad parenting. I feel bad watching them get so excited to take a zero day only to face the harsh weather the next six months of this will be killer

And apparently having cps called on you wasn’t enough to make you second guess your choices *sigh*. You literally had to beat a mouse to death in front of your sleeping children, how is this a good life for them. Sorry but I think a stable life is more important for children then going on an adventure for months on end.
