I notice that "ass" is used on TV, as well. (Also, "badass.") I'm in agreement with you - when did this happen, and who said it was okay?

2015-01-10T13:28:04.295-06:00

Just a little education for you: Latina/o/Hispanic is a genocidal term used on the mostly indigenous people (yes,Native Americans from Spanish speaking countries). Hispanic is really a person from Spain and using that on a clearly Native person is just a form of oppressing them and erasing their true identity. There are black Spanish speaking people, but they should NOT be called as Latinos. Just do some research on this before using the Latina term on your blog.

I found your blog while commenting on plain(s) feminist old blog and she linked to you in her sidebar. I think I've seen you post in the ask an orthodox hipster forums on facebook. Am I right? It's a small world.

The creeps at the hate site libertarianrepublican are still obsessed with you, I guess.

My mom is American of Italian and Irish ancestry. My dad was born in Latin America to spaniards escaping the civil world. I identify myself as Latin American and love my heritage .

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I usually stay away from BuzzFeed, but your pointer led me to a powerful story of a young man who is being blamed for other people's risky behavior. These man insisted on having sex without a condom, then chose to blame this young man for their choices. He did not hold a gun to their head and force them to have sex with him. He appears to be a young man who was caught in a confluence of exploitation and privilege. So why is he the only one at fault?

This kid is FAR more responsible and motivated than I was at hir age. Glory to God for that, because I gave my poor momma the blues when I was young!

2014-02-11T06:34:37.927-06:00

Right, because an able bodied person can't see how a disabled person could possibly be actually happy and productive, therefore the disabled person would be better off dead. And a child who is disabled is not only unhappy they are inconvenient.
I was born with wonky legs, and was pain and very inconvenient to my parents. Mind you, it wasn't a terminal illness ( tho if you take it to its logical conclusion, LIFE is terminal) but it cause a lot of financial hardship and work for Mom and Dad. Sme would think I should have been aborted or left out for the wolves. Fie.

What a wonderful post. As the mother of a child with autism and Tourette's (a much misunderstood disorder), I applaud you. As a disabled person myself, I add more applause.

My sister Lisa had severe cerebral palsy. She could not see, walk or talk in a conventional manner (she was much like a baby, and those who knew her well knew the sounds for hungry, bored, dirty diaper and so on). She was a happy, beautiful, wonderful person. Many people thought she had no quality of life. These people were fools.

She died in 2010. I still miss that happy sound she would make when she heard my voice.

2013-10-05T16:52:46.122-05:00

My grandparents and now my parents have unreservedly insisted that they will NOT die in our house. They will not come to live here if they need assistance. My father has taken out "long term care" insurance that covers the cost of assisted living and nursing homes. Our house is perfect for taking in someone, with a big separate studio apartment area and all that. But no...they won't hear of it. I worked in a nursing home, and seeing people die alone, with no loved one holding their hand, was the saddest thing I'd ever seen. People like them don't understand that being present at someone's passing on is a gift, both to the person dying and the family left behind. I want to die with family around, singing and holding my hand.

2013-09-30T22:12:16.423-05:00

There was this old hagiography that included Mary Of Egypt called "Whores of the Desert"--in the Catholic book store where I once worked, the book got all kinds of attention (from men), and we joked about how it got yanked out of alphabetical order nearly every day. THAT CATCHY TITLE! The publisher (maybe Ignatius press?) finally changed the title totally ... and I now can find no mention of it online anywhere.

One of those arcane historical things!
PS: I love Mary of Egypt and I loved the "Whores of the Desert" worldly women (not necessarily whores, but many worldly women got classed as "whores" in those days of course) who converted and went out to the Desert to become hermits and ascetics, as the Desert Fathers did. :)

I know the feeling about pills for the rest of your life. It is what it is. I don't have the degree of chronic physical pain you do, though. I wish I could carry it for a while, and give you a break from it.

2013-09-10T09:08:24.278-05:00

Thank you. War is by nature barbaric and I feel uncomfortable thanking someone for quite possibly killing another human being who is most likely not innately evil but also being used by their government to promote an agenda. Not like thanking nurses, doctors, firefighters, EMTs and police and others who are about saving lives, not extinguishing them.

2013-08-24T06:50:32.293-05:00

Why on Earth can't you just settle in the corner like a good little minority and parrot their words,ever grateful for tidbits of attention? Don't you recognize their inherent and obvious superiority as White Womyn of Education? Why aren't you grateful?
As for Mr. Schwyzer, he put himself out there and made the mistake of making a mistake (ok, many mistakes). He will not ever be forgiven, as Feminists are not capable of forgiveness. The man needs to find a good church, one that preaches the gospel of Christ, you know, the one about forgiveness and redemption, and leave the feminist thing far behind. That is a world he ill never be able to return to, unless he wants to be eaten alive.

I agree with you one hundred percent on your paragraph about love. You can tell anyone oh i love you...i love you...but actions speak louder than words. Thanks to my partner of 8 years Alberto for always being by my side....as i sit here in my hospital bed, hooked up to my PICC Line and my TPN flowing thru my vein...Alberto is right here next to me in a hospital chair waiting until 6am to leave for another workday that consists of 2 hours of drive time and another 12-14 hours of work. Then he returns back to me...by my side. My one true love. Thank you mi amor.

2013-06-12T20:44:41.547-05:00

I've met a few people in person that I first came to know online, and they were the easiest and most comfortable "first meeting" meetings ever. Once the "oh you're taller than I imagined" and "I didn't know you'd have that accent" is done with, you already know each other and it's as comfortable as old friends.

2013-05-15T21:24:46.212-05:00

Of course, you are correct that Jesus, a Jew, would be classified as non-white today. He wasn't a "Palestinian", though. In the day, Rome considered the area to the back water of the more prominent Syria.

"Palestine", properly, is the Roman word for 'third world slum'.

2013-05-07T13:44:35.206-05:00

Thank you for this. Girl hate sucks, but I don't believe that saying you're 'not like other girls' is necessarily hateful or anti-feminist. Girls are already policed for their expression so much, and I've seen how people have used the popularity of being against Girls Who Are Not Like Other Girls as an excuse for calling them 'special snowflakes' and for being plain misogynistic. Being 'different' is hard. Even if in the grand scheme of things you're not that different! And if a girl wants to say 'I'm different and I'm proud of it' because it's better than hating herself for not being like the Other Girls we shouldn't, like, throw peanuts at her.
