Ron Paul, S.E.X., and the 38th Carnival of Feminists

Book cover to S.E.X. by Heather CorinnaNine Pearls writes a glowing review of a sex-ed book aimed at young adults, S.E.X.: The All-You-Need-To-Know Progressive Sexuality Guide to Get You Through High School and College. She enthuses, "[it] should be the textbook for every sex ed class in this country. It's that good." Take a look at the full review at her blog.

I See Invisible People chats with her son about why she won't support Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul:

"The conversation got heated when I informed him that I could, under no circumstances, vote for a candidate who was not openly pro-choice. He argued that no president, even in her/his Supreme Court appointments, could have any affect on abortion laws. He held forth that any erosion of rights is the province of the states and that the president and the courts have nothing to do with it. He didn't buy my belief that one of the roles of the Supreme Court is to protect us from the tyranny of the majority. […]"

It's quite a moving post, especially when she talks about how politics affects the lives of real people.

The 38th Carnival of Feminists was published a few days ago at Team Rainbow.

Zuky links to it and comments:

"And it's a colorful one indeed, featuring such brilliant blogmigas as Sylvia, Brownfemipower, Blackamazon, Petit Poussin… women of courageous conviction who have my respect, admiration, and support. In the face of what I consider to be dishonest attacks and dismissals—not just this past week but every week, on an ongoing basis—they have not only kept on fighting; they have kept on teaching."

I often think the burnout rate for activist bloggers must be pretty high; so I bid farewell to Thoughts of an Average Woman. If you want to see some examples of her work, take a look at a couple of her recent posts, "Food Stamp Challenge on the Hill" and "Waning Mammograms".
