I began this week by using all three of our blogs to do something that was unpleasant, to say the least. I’m not exactly trying to balance the karmic scale, because Monday was justified. But since you all turned out for me, I think I should use both my blogs to offer you the opportunity to turn out for something positive.
I’ll post my first original Feminist Friday piece this week. I’m hoping to stimulate a discussion. I’ll have the full details and am invitation to the blogosphere at large at Sourcerer tomorrow in lieu of the regular comics post.
The post is drafted. It started as an idea over the weekend, and Diana and Gretchen encouraged me to do it, so I spent this evening setting it up. Both those links go to posts that were Freshly Pressed, and they will be mentioned in the Feminist Friday post. I’m giving them to you now so that if you’d like to join in, you have a couple of days to read them and scan the threads.
Diana, Gretchen, and I have a running conversation about feminism that’s been going on since January, and I’m inviting other interested people to talk about it with us. If you aren’t reading Gretchen’s blog, you should be. As far as the writing of the words goes, she’s one of the best.
Not only will I offer you a prompt for discussion on Friday, I’ll tell you a story.
I’m including this video because my wife considers it a feminist song, and I can see that. I’m not sure about the video. I suppose we can read it as a celebration of feminine power. Sometimes these things are difficult to judge. Most of you haven’t interacted with Vicki yet. She’s just getting into WordPress, but she has a WordPress account. I’ve invited her to chime in on Friday.
