This is about equality

Starting today, the Supreme Court of the United States is going to be listening to arguments about Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act. Pretty much, they're going to make the decision about marriage equality in this country....more

World Women's Day at Home

Inm observance of World Women's Day (yes, I did happily accept my red carnation at the grocery store), it's time to look behind the campaigns and band mottos and focus on what we all want: true equality between men and women. At this point I don't want to focus on the plight of women in Africa, South-East Asia, or the Middle East....more

Blog the Love: February 14, 2013

Yesterday, I was cruising around the blogs that I devoutly follow (I'm getting better at checking in, at least. *grins*), and one way or another I found myself upon the "doorstep" of The Golden Age of Gaia (formerly The 2012 Scenario).  It was while there that I read through a recent post regarding February 14th and their desire for that day to become known as "a day of global love, abundance and equality"....more

What Would A World with Full Women's Equality Look Like?

In college in the 1980s I remember feminism as a word so confusing and controversial, I dared not speak of it. Over the years, as I lived, worked and traveled, the concept of feminism came into focus. But how is it defined? I looked it up in Websters the other day and found feminism defined as “the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.” I'm not sure why that is so controversial in hindsight. That definition got me thinking, what would society look like if the word “theory” was taken out of the definition and women had perfect equality? ...more

Why I'm Leaving the GOP

Last presidential election was about making history. I cried that night because finally America cast aside prejudice and racism and voted for a man, not based on his skin color, but on who he was as a man. I was so proud, so grateful that in my lifetime I saw the struggles of my parents' generation for civil rights and equality come to fruition. ...more

Not Stale: Women's Issues in the Presidential Campaign

It's bad enough when men assume women are single issue voters, but it's far, far worse when a fellow woman has decided that if I have a deal-breaker issue, I must be a zombie following 'rhetoric' spewed by a given political party....more

POWER, EQUALITY AND COUGAR POLITICS

 During a recent interview I was asked if there was a difference between older women/younger men relationships and their opposite, relationships between older men and significantly younger women.  For most people the obvious answer has to do with sex, or better sex, or let's get real, out-of-the-box mind boggling great sex (especially if the man is a lot younger)....more

Lincoln Had it Right

As seen this week on TheNextFamily.com (7/3/2012):So we’re kind of at a stand still right now with Harrison’s adoption.  After we found out that we had to have an ad litem attorney (in San Antonio) to represent Harrison, that is where things have slowed down.  Everything else is done, and now we are waiting for this last step to fall into place so that we can get a court date.  I anxiously await for the phone call that says when we can go!...more

The Freeze. Here and at Augusta National Golf Course

I knew it was too good to be true.  My summer shirts are still hanging on the bottom rack of my closet because I knew there was no way that we would have spring from here on out.  Mother nature has been teasing us with temperatures warm enough to trick the trees and bushes into blooming 6 weeks early....more
