The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.
This is a Feminist Blog, in the tradition of Susan B. Anthony.
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

If A Woman Gets Beaten Senseless (or Has Her Head Cut Off) It is Her Own Fault
So, apparently, think 46% of Boston area teens. (WTF? I thought Bostonians were "progressive.")
• 46% said Rihanna was responsible for the (beating) incident • 51% said Chris Brown was responsible for the incident • 52% said both individuals were to blame for the incident, despite knowing at the time that Rihanna had been beaten badly enough to require hospital treatment • 35% said the media were treating Rihanna unfairly • 52% said the media were treating Chris Brown unfairly
Oh poor Chris! The media is unfair to him!! Wah, wah. (Can I puke now?)
Muslims Against Shari'a would like you to know that they are standing with Marcia Pappas against Muzzamil Hassan and the brutal honorcide of his wife, Aasiya.
Good for them!
Now... how do we get them teaching in Boston's schools?
ADDENDUM: On occasion, I crosspost my ideas across the blogosphere. I maintain three blogs ... each appealing to different populations. The most socially liberal of those blogs is at Tribe.net, where I have blogged for three to four years.
It's always interesting to see which reader group "bites" on which blog entry. I was surprised to see Tribe taking up this discussion with such deep thought and vigor.
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
