Intermission: Cartoon Break

Not feeling super eloquent this week, although I’m working on a couple of topics.   If you want to see longer posts soon, give us some encouragement in the form of comments!  Feeds our egos, and all that.

Had a debate with a Privilege Denying Dude this week on FB.      And while I no longer watch Glee, I am very proud that several people have googled “Ryan Murphy sexism” and stumbled upon our blog by way of my rant.  Any of you lot still lurking and reading?    Poor Santana, or something.

See you next week with some opinions, I promise.  Regardless of how eloquent they are.


Take it away, Kate!

Lady Godiva mourns

My friend passed away this weekend, so there will be no blogging for me this week.

Yea, though I walk though the valley of the shadow of Death…

How you can help Occupy Chicago

Between high holidays, job applications, mom visiting, and the start of school, I have little time to write.

All I want to say is that you should visit the following website to help Occupy Chicago:

Interestingly enough, one of the items they are currently asking for the most are feminine hygiene products. I’m very glad that this movement is taking these needs into consideration. Certainly a far cry from the misogyny of the protests of a few generations ago. I wonder who is in charge of getting feminine hygiene products on the list of needed items, and how much of a role they have in this – I’d love to meet them. I might be heading out to the protests on Wednesday and Thursday night (box of feminine hygiene items in hand), and depending on how wild things get I might skip school on Thursday, so keep an eye out if you’re there too or let me know if you’d like to meet up!

*This in no way means I live in Chicago – it’s just the closest “Occupy” protest center to where I live.

Here are some videos featuring women at the Occupy Wall Street protests [TRIGGER WARNING: Police brutality in the first video] – Woman resists being manhandled, crowd rightfully shouts “WHO ARE YOU PROTECTING?!?!” – Faces and voices of women involved in the Occupy Wall Street protests.

You Know What’s Ridiculous? That Skin-Tight “tznius” Skirt.

It’s also ridiculous to be told that it’s not “tznius”* to wear pants (as happened today).

Day 19: Schedule a physical exam

I’ve been trying to do this for around five days, but my insurance is dumb so I have to arrange things with my mother to get a primary care physician in the state I now I live in (1000+ miles away from my home state). I can’t believe I haven’t seen a doctor in three years!

Day 18: Emmy goes N.U.T.S.

Click here for original post.

I started looking for these a few days ago. Here are a few select N.U.T.S. (Non-negotiable, unalterable terms):

“I believe in moral and ethical development, and I pursue it daily.”
“I explore and consider my privilege, and do the same for others if they do not do it themselves.”
“The personal is (always) political.”
“I am neither a liberal nor a utilitarian.”
“I keep a kosher kitchen and a Shabbat-observant home.”
“I am no one’s bitch.”
“I honor my mother and father, and respect my sister.”
“I believe in a Jewish State in the Land of Israel.”
“I do not hit or kick anyone unless it is in self-defense or part of an organized activity with pre-determined conventions (aka sports).”
“I do not shame anyone publicly.”
