Why I’m Afraid To Go To School Today: Brother Jed

With my first post of the academic school year, I wanted to address the new freshmen who may stumble across the Women’s Center’s blog – welcome, you guys! – but in light of events occurring this week, I feel as though it’s more important to discuss something else first. For those of you who are…

Intolerable Hatred

Hello fantabulous readers, Romans 2:1-3 Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. Let me start out by saying – I am not a Christian. I do not identify with Christianity, but…

The Obligatory Wedding Dress Discussion

Get it? Because I’m female, I must talk about wedding dresses at one point in my life. Although this post is not about why Dresses Are Bad, why women Don’t Wear Pants to these auspicious day(s) of their life, and any other standard gripes one could conceive, it will, however, mention Katy Perry. So, perhaps…

Hey There, Sister Wife.

Grab your eighth cup of coffee for the day. We’re about to talk plural marriage. Sister Wives resumed the other week, and I’m as hooked as I ever was. The show has made quite a splash, bringing plural marriage into dinner table conversation. Although, bringing it into conversation in an evangelical small group where you’re…

And God in all this?

Soon, my dear readers, I may have no words.  It’s been a least 2 months since I’ve written anything on here, and as Dorothy Fontana once said: “You can’t say, I won’t write today because that excuse will extend into several days, then several months, then… you are not a writer anymore, just someone who…

Watch out for those witchy women

There’s a lot of negative labels associated with feminism. One of them I ran across from a quote by Pat Robertson, “a media mogul, television evangelist, ex-Baptist minister and businessman who is politically aligned with the Christian Right in the United States.” (Wikipedia). Ready for this beast of a quote? “(T)he feminist agenda is not…

Why I'm Joining the Fast for a Better Budget

It’s been an explosive spring. Keeping up with the daily news and your schoolwork is a juggling act at best. 
Things WILL slip by you. Especially complex economic/numbers things — the budget. I’ve done my share of non-profit grunt accounting work but I’m not a math whiz. Numbers don’t get my heart beating. 
Budgets can…

A Prayer on Mardi Gras

I woke up early this morning to tie up some loose ends. After my second cup of coffee, I grabbed my devotional and then paused. What can you possibly say to G-d on Mardi Gras? “Please close your eyes, this is going to be ugly” seemed as inappropriate as today’s scheduled topic: preparing with spouses…

Updates… until I can channel my rage

By Sasha Brodskaya Since I can’t seem to get my thoughts organized on various things happening in the gay rights movement (a piece on that is in the works), I thought I’d leave you all with some thought-provoking news. First off, the topic of wilke’s last entry seems to be part of a new trend…
