See you at Atheism+? It's the flavor of atheism that explicitly includes feminism. It's about time.

We assumed for too long that the atheist movement had our backs. As with so many other groups where we assume we are included, represented, and supported (take your pick...the military, the Peace Corps, government...), it was just not true.

Ooooh, Coulter and Malkin. But Palin gets me more, because her whole life, family, job, environment, speech, in short, everything about her, is so obviously, OBVIOUSLY, diametrically opposed to what she says. It's all just right out there, and yet all these people, women, too, even mostly, just slobber all over her. Yech.

Yes, and then, astoundingly, they are unaware of the irony. But even more important, so are all the women who would vote for them.

Isn'y ironic that they cry for the woman as a "little homemaker" while not being what they say women should be?

How can we ever explain the Phyllis Schlaflys, Sarah Palins, and Sharon Angles? And, shudder, with all this right-wing religious stuff going on, are we headed straight backwards towards The Handmaid's Tale? Scary, just scary. It would be so easy to slip backwards from the progress we have made. After Roe v. Wade, I thought the abortion issue was "settled" for good.

Sure, we have certainly made progress - very important progress. Just not enough for my druthers!

I used to think we'd be past all the stupid crazy sexist religious dumb what-have-you by now, and clearly I was mistaken in believing that everyone else naturally wanted progress too, and that women would naturally want equality.

When I was very young (like 7 or 8) and just realizing that the world simply treated me as less-than just because, I never would have believed how many women would actively maintain the kyriarchy and limit the freedoms of other women, and certainly would not have believed how fiercely so many still defend their "right" (and ours) to be less-than in 2010. That is insanity in my view.
