I’m Just a Girl

OK.  I got thoughts about feminism, being a woman, being girly, and related things, and I need to share them.  They are pretty jumbled at this point, so bear with me as I untangle the threads.  It started yesterday as I was sitting in my therapist’s room waiting for my appointment.  I will get to… Continue Reading

Yes, We Did

–The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice. MLK Jr. So, the Healthcare Reform Bill passed the House tonight.  I have to be honest in that I had my doubts it would actually pass.  I had a friend who told me right after the Senate passed their version that it… Continue Reading

I am a Proud Progressive, Part I

Words are funny things.  In and of themselves, they are pretty neutral.   It’s only because of the meaning we imbue them with that they become charged.  Take, for example, the word faggot or fag.  In America, it’s a derogatory term for a homosexual man.  In England, it’s a cigarette.  Originally, it meant a stick.… Continue Reading
