refers me.
“automatically generated”
but still.
i show up on fox news???  as opposed to, oh, say I Blame the Patriarchy, Feministing, Feminist Philosophers, the Curvature, etc.  maybe they don’t know i’m not a fox news kind of gal.

 

on an unrelated note, another dip into look both ways: bisexual politics by jennifer baumgarnder.

jennifer quotes second-wave feminist author naomi weisstein:
“The lesbian conversion in the women’s liberation movement is one of the most stunning examples of the power of a collective, social movement to challenge our deepest notion of who we think we are and what we believe we can do.  This chapter of our history should never be lost because it provides profound hope in our ability, through collective action, to become what we want to become, and to mold our human society in ways that we would believe unthinkable beore the transformation.”

“profound hope” is right!
all this book keeps telling me is: you are not alone, you are not broken or odd, you are not irrational when it comes to these things you feel, things can change, you can change, and it’s all okay.  it’s ALL okay.

i’m not sure what i wanted to say about that quote, really.  i guess i just wanted to throw it out there.
phrases like “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken,” and “strength in numbers” are floating in my head.
