The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.

"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."

Speaking as a (Retired) Midwife Now: Archeologists are Lying Their Pants Off.
When observing these prehistoric “figurines” of both female and male form…. If one wants to believe they are “pornographic” … the ridiculous implication is that men “get off” better via their imaginations (ie. looking at a female form.) While women have easier orgasms if the stimulus is a “tool” that is divorced from context. Modern science would suggest that nothing could be further from the truth. Studies of human sexuality show that the opposite is actually true.
If archeologists were working within a matrio-centric framework we’d finally get the truth… that God was once a woman and therefore, not allowed to be represented by anything less than wholeness. (Feet and head not required for creation. Vulva and breasts are.) OTOH... only the Lingham is required of the male god. (For that matter... forget the Lingham... even "The Word" he speaks is enough to impregnate Her form. No appendage required!)
At the very least, a serious scientific explanation should posit that a Goddess amulet of the sort shown here was likely carried as a fertility charm. This is not "rocket science" (pun intended.) Women still do this sort of thing and there is ample evidence of it, the world over.
I give up on the “science” of archeology. Really I do. These man centered interpretations are patently idiotic. I simply can’t abide that such “scientists” have any grasp on the truth whatsoever. Either they are clueless or they are deliberately lying to us.
I guess that begs the question....
Can anybody with an advanced degree be THAT stupid???
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.
