Nobody wants to be a feminist because it’s hard.
Feminism is a theory. It signifies the radical idea that women are humans.
To be a feminist is to be a person that is feminism. Once you admit that you are, you become.
You can no longer be like everyone else. You have to point out that a government sponsored, specifically you the taxpayer, billboard demands you (woman) breastfeed your baby because that’s what women and babies are made for. You have to point out the absurdity. It seems so insane, considering that we’ve reached the year 2006.
You want to believe that Hillary could have a fighting chance. You really want to believe. But you know your history and your culture.
Despite how hard and how isoloated you feel, you remain a feminist because to be anything else is no way to live.
In an LA Times story picked up by the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, found in the “Living” section, history is about to happen. An unprecedented decision to allow both gay rabbis and same-sex commitment ceremonies is upon us.
In a not so distant future, you may be a gay rabbi but cannot have anal sex “between men”. No women need apply considering this implicit detail – or can they?
“A restriction on gay anal sex, he [Rabbi Elliot Dorff] said, is similar to rules against heterosexual intercourse during menstruation. But requiring celibacy would be, he said, cruel and ‘very un-Jewish.’”
So…if gay anal sex is to hetrosexual intercourse during menstruation and celibacy is to cruelty then…
Confusion is likely to happen.
