    Amen!

  • Cat Fleming commented on the blog post Rethinking the Social Definition of “Marriage”   11 months, 2 weeks ago · View

    ~”Right now we have a great opportunity to push for conversations that redefine marriage for our generation. What does it mean to be in a legal partnership as equals? What does it mean to serve your partner and yourself in a marriage? What does it mean to be liberated within the institution of marriage? And [...]

    Yes, many thanks for bringing up the ubiquitous obsession with visuality in western society, of which most of us are victims, whether we admit it to ourselves or not. I don’t think it’s an issue of what’s natural, and what isn’t, body modification is cross-cultural and has been a thing for thousands of years. Beauty [...]

    I’m not a psych, just experienced in getting hurt, so I’ll comment from that point of view… Sounds like you’re grieving. When you’ve gone through one big shocking hurt after another, the grief builds up. You may have shut down because you need to take time to recover. Talk to someone, get some succor. You [...]

    Thanks Jenny. I guess I shouldn’t respond to trolls, but it’s hard not to… :)

    Hello Smiley, First of all, thanks for reading my post, there’s not much more a blogger can ask for than that… Oh, except maybe, some closer reading, accurate analysis and factual quoting, because when this is done maybe at least a modicum of understanding can be gleaned from the effort we bloggers put in to [...]

    This is where we were at in my last post: “Now, I hate to be the harbinger of doom (I’m talking to all you younger ladies out there as well), but all women, every single one of us, must face this scenario sooner or later. As we age the popular media gradually villainizes and de-sexualizes us, [...]

  • Thanks for reading my post, thinking intelligently about it, and replying, Honeybee. You ask me a lot of questions in your comment, and rather than defend my position, I’ll just say, wait until you read the next post in which I offer solutions… :)

  • G’day ladies. If you read my last post, you might have noticed that I’m a bit uptight about the aging thing. It’s not so much about the natural physical process (although I can’t deny that it hurts – literally), but how aging women are perceived, and received in our western society. We are looked at differently [...]

    “What am I if I’m not sexually attractive – am I anything?” ~Ella Dreyfus

    Aging is terrifying! I have to tell you, the older I get, the crueler the whole thing seems. It’s that evil bastard, time. It just goes too fast. I hadn’t thought about it much until recently, I guess I’ve been on sort-of an [...]

    Hi Honeybee, Thanks for taking time to read my post, and thanks for making a such a supportive comment, too. Obviously it wasn’t very clear, but what I was trying to get across, was that we need to re-write those old Prince Charming fairy tale narratives, not to teach our girls that there is no [...]

  • I think it is normal to cherish “Princess” fairy tales. HOWEVER… Most people think these stories are harmless and that our daughters will see them as merely another entertainment narrative. When the truth is that these stories are part of the cultural toolset that is used to control the population. The French social theorist Michel [...]
