    I remember a sister that put a tissue over her head as a headcovering...

    Been there, done that, always thought it was silly. I've used cloth baby diapers, hankies, scarfs, anything to cover the head. Crazy if you ask me.

    The women in the congregations I attended always had a scarf in their bookbag; there was one at the KH for when we met there and at the book study centers. So I never saw any bizarre headcoverings.

    I used to wonder about the whole headcovering thing. JWs took that literally but ignored the scripture that admonished women to keep quiet in the congregations...

    It surely would have worked better had they reversed these...

    I can remember seeing them go by the window of the door, and use the curtain on the window for their head. Which, to me, was a complete waste. This ended when they got new light about an unbaptized "brother" not requiring a "sister" to wear this stupid thing, along with the "proper head gear" rule. Also, I got baptized soon after, and whenever I was the only "brother" out, I would get stuck saying the damn prayer.

    I always felt sorry for sisters always having to be reminded of their inferiority to men

    When I got baptised it felt so wrong for a 15 year old twerp of a boy taking the lead when meeting for FS if there were more spiritual & more experienced intelligent women available that would have done a far better job than me!!!

    It made me squirm............... & then having to stand up think of way to ask for JG's HS on our efforts that was different from the time I had to pray before .

    I never believed I was talking to anyone when I stood up prayed for HS on our work.

    What a fraud I was.

    I remember older sisters from the 1940s who would never remove their hats or head scarves while in the KH, as apparently in some places, that was the custom that JW women always had to have their head covered during the meetings, so they could comment.

    I used to go on Bible Studies with sisters back when I pioneered. I always let them conduct their own studies, and they would have to wear head coverings. It was pretty funny watching them explain this to the householder. "yeah, because of the angels, i am gonna need to wear this scarf today, since this guy here is a baptized member of our church"..

    LOL

    That's an awesome idea...good enough to be called to heavento sit at the right hand of god, but not good enough to not submit to dunked 8 year old boy.

    Behold the power of the magical penis!

    My grandma used a potholder or a tea towel. Whichever was closer.

    Try not to laugh during those prayers. When your 9 that is funny stuff.

    They didn't listen anyway, so why bother having a boy trying to lead a bunch of head-strong women? When I was a teen and tried leading the group in service, after I made up car groups, the sisters, specifically elder's wives, rearranged them as soon as "amen" was uttered. It was an exercise in futility, trying to put an elders' wife or pioneer sister in a car group.

    One sister insisted on driving her car....'cept she was the worst driver in the hall...she was dangerous, she was so bad. I personally refused to ride with her so I always tried to not put other people's lives in danger by assigning them to her car...instead I put her in someone elses van. As soon as the group was dismissed she ran around re-arranging things so she could drive. The elders finally told me to leave her alone and let her drive. I told em that the blood would be on their heads...

    The comedian G. Carlin stated, he would never join any religious where you must wear a hat for men and

    head cover for women or you can not wear any head gear. Some body got it wrong, The Pope, Muslim and

    Judaism must wear a head gear then we have the other Christian group say it is inappropriate for men to

    wear hats. Do you really think God care if you wear a pointed hat or paper tissue on your head.
