On many posts by those with experience of DF or DA shunning, it look to me that the most fanatical observers of the shunning practise are Mothers, and when a person approached parents about their own doubts or intentions, approaching the mother the most daunting prospect
Odd that Visiting Warwick leaflet has a picture of a meeting of some sort with a room comprising men only, given the subordinate role given to women, one might think they would be more liberal over shunning close ones, but not so.
What drives this, is it grabbing an opportunity to be more visible by their loyalty, or low level of education of a lot of dubs so that the sisters blindly accept direction or authority
I might have expected some kick back against the shunning practise by sisters giving evidence to their independence of thought.
Our real thinkers here will be able to explain this fanaticism of loyalty better
