So obviously there's a lot of God things going on, but there's more than that. The first thing you see on their homepage is a sort of request to see that they are an ordinary family, which I see as a desire to be normal and not a perversion; they are trying to normalize having 19 children, and the possibility of more, as their motto seems to be "19 Kids & Counting!" There are so many pictures of the family all over the place, and obviously an emphasis on the children. Having your own website and TV show are clear indicators that this family has turned itself into a commodity, which is more Marxist, but I feel that because it all revolves around the amount of children this couple has it becomes sexualized. The whole gimmick is the craziness of having 19 children and then of course, their religion.
In the "About" section, the parents go right into talking about how when there were first married they used birth control but after a miscarriage they thought it was the wrong course. These people clearly like having sex. And talking about it. Yet their religion values modesty and basically the suppression of sexuality-- at least pre-maritally. The children must wear modest clothing and I find the set up of their house telling. There are pictures of their house, which is quite big. Apparently all of the boys are in one bedroom and all of the girls in another. This is quite average, but after Foucault's reading it becomes more complicated. Like the German schools, are the boys and girls separated because of the possibility of sexual interactions? I understand that them being siblings, there's perhaps a greater question of incest here, but still. Sexuality is made into an issue by separating the children by gender; if sexuality isn't an issue, then why bother?
