oh PUH-LEEZE...

TRUE liberal feminism, as i learned it in the 1970s, is about respecting the choices women make for themselves, no matter what that choice is. it is NOT about forcing any view of "feminism" on women!

there are still WAY more important things to worry about than whether or not my wearing lipstick and mascara means i'm buying into some patriarchy - wage parity, sexual freedom (and that includes wanting to reclaim the term "slut" or rejecting it as you see fit), and education for women and girls around the world - just for starters!

And even white middle class women are subject to domestic and sexual violence that they don't choose, which disproportionately affects disenfranchised communities of women.
.
Unfortunately any woman, of any class, and any color, is subjected or at risk for that... at any time.

Which is why it's so silly for women to talk about "choice" and "reclaiming sluttiness."

I personally do not talk about reclaiming sluttiness. That's not my thing. I might find it silly, but I won't bash someone for doing it. I don't like telling people how they should think or feel. I also do not personally identify with everything "feminist". I would have been labeled (oh the labels) as a riot girl, I guess. "The Third Wave". Not that it ever encompassed everything I believed or hoped for.

I think talking about choices is important, in situations where there could be one BUT it is equally important to fight for the women who do not have one. It all matters, at least to someone it does.

But I didn't see any "bashing" or telling people how to think or feel. Saria posted something she read that resonated with her, and some other posters such as myself agree with her and with that post and think it gets the issues correctly. People were critiquing neo-feminism or liberal feminism or whatever you want to call it, but not bashing anyone personally. We were just sharing what WE think and feel.

Maybe "the truth" threw me off (seeing good and bad). Maybe I completely misread, but honestly I feel like quite a few people here post things that bash and try to tell people how they should feel on a matter. I think that is why many here refrain from giving their opinions

**sorry, at work & had to pop out** Do note I am not saying you seemed like you were bashing. I enjoyed reading your posts, and I do get the pro's and con's you were highlighting. I might not be a well versed as some. Women's studies were not offered when I was in school, but to be honest, I probably wouldn't have taken it. It's too much of a labeled, and generalized, cluster for my liking. I read on my own, and talked to women, and go with my gut. It's a grab bag of good intentions.

After last night... I wish this planet had a reset button. There is no hope. No hope at all.

I might feel differently after 8 hours of sleep, but probably not.

Operation 'change hair from brassy/yellow back to ash' is on.

Also Perfect 10 Light Ash Blonde makes my hair brassy/yellow, not a lighter shade than it is. And it didn't cover my few greys (yes, I now have more than one)

yoga and strength training don't work out together.
But for real tho'

I almost fell in yoga, hamstrings so tight yo. I sweat more in yoga than I do in spinning, or zumba, or running(jk about running) BUT I SWEAT MORE THAN SPINNING AND THATS JUST NOT RIGHT.

SOMEONES NASTY ASS TOE NAIL WAS ON MY MAT (buying my own mat now) AND EVERYTIME I Would kick it, it would get closer. I was truly disturbed.


For the month of Febz, I lost 4 lbs total. WOOP.
If I could get my diet under control, I would probably lose weigh (get it??) more. But I cannot give up flawless pizza.....or anything that is not healthy and delicious.

omg I made an egg sandwhich and the egg yolk exploded all over my arm (YAY NOT MY CLOTHES) in my hair? yes, but I ain't wash my hair in days, so it doesn't matter, (I did take a shower...before the eggula explosion) the fake cheap cheese made me not want to eat it anymore. so I only ate like 4 bites, also the yolk explosion made me not want to eat.

I'll just eat apples.

My husband goes through spurts where he has to travel. The current plant he is working in offered him twice his current salary to work for them.

He said no.

Because he is a man and therefore an idiot.

Not wanting to relocate is only part of it. He thinks he would be on call all the time and get called constantly, and have super long hours.

I'm sorry, but I'm just PO'd that Yahoo is like, what, the second company Marissa Mayer has ever worked for? Granted, she served in several roles at Google...But now she's CEO of Yahoo! CEO! She's only 37 and makes $40 million a year, give or take. Yes, I know she's been there a while. But her telecommuting ban reignited my ire...

TNB, the podcast "Throwing Shade" has a segment on just that issue this week.

I didn't realize how much other people dislike centipedes and their ilk. They don't bother me. What can I say? I feel they're all God's creatures. Or evolution's, and therefore have a role to play in the ecosystem.

I think any company can decide if they want employees to work remotely. I work from home but if my company decided that was no longer an option the ball is in my court-work in the office or find another job. With this economy I would be hauling my butt to the office. Where you work is your decision and if you do not like the company rules then move on.
