That's right - one year ago today, this site popped into being! Happy Blog-Birth Day, everyone! No, we don't want any presents,
How will we be celebrating? We'll be in the pub in just a few minutes, talking about the following:
1. The Anglican Church in Britain has voted "to approve the consecration of women as bishops," and the Vatican is displeased. When we speak of this, Elaine Pagels' The Gnostic Gospels will be referenced every third sentence.
2. Did the White House Manipulate Climate Documents?
3. NPR's report on how violence has impacted marriages in Iraq, and how marriage break-downs are disproportionately impacting women, is a must-hear.
4. Womanist Musings has a post up entitled "You're So Controversial" that I'm itching to discuss, and I'm also enthralled with Professor, What If's piece, "What if we gave up the 'top-model' instead of expanding it?"
5. In "Is this news?" news:
A. As it turns out, having gays in the military doesn't weaken the military in any way! (Seems like the Romans could have told us that).
B. Men have biological clocks, too! (Actually, this one will surprise my grandma.)
C. Having kids doesn't necessarily make you happier, and might stress you out!
If you leave comments about any of the above, it will be just like you're right here with us. Oh, and my second post is up over at Feministe! Yeah! (The 'it's my birthday and I'll brag if I want to' UPDATE: Jezebel linked to my second Feministe post today! - Oh, and Skepchick, too! I love Skepchick! And AlterNet and RH Reality Check!)
