    She even stated in an interview in 2005:

    “This isn’t the first time the claim has been made. The Veterans History Project from the Library of Congress interviewed Friedman about the kiss in 2005. “It wasn’t my choice to be kissed,” she said then. “The guy just came over and grabbed!”

    Thanks for covering this! I just posted in the community blog about what’s going on here in Virginia: community.feministing.com/2012/09/16/why-your-religion-has-nothing-to-do-with-abortion-one-outraged-virginians-perspective/ It’s so frustrating. The BoH is supposed to be an independent, non-partisan group of medical experts who are there to PREVENT the politicization of medicine. The Attorney General had no right to refuse to sign their [...]

  • Matthew commented on the blog post The ways of talking about the “war on women” that leave people out   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    Thank you for posting this. The overall mainstream conversation so rarely steps outside of the patriarchal gender binary that, while I recognize some people are being left out, I’m not always sure how to go about preventing that from happening.
