unmoderated blog of my friend, MusingMother. There, you can feel free to ask leading questions just because you are "genuinely curious" or engage in "lively debate." We'll see how long THAT lasts.
She is, unlike me, truly curious as to what you all want from us. I will tell you that what SMAAC is or is not doing is no one else's business. I will also say that saying the many men who loved and left us in the lurch were just "products of their time" is a LOUSY excuse for poor behavior and patriarchal inequity. "That's just the way things were," is not an excuse for anything that was unjust, hurtful and wrong. Wrong is wrong.
I'm going to spend a few days with my hubby and my dog and some friends and family.
I also hope to find a guru who will tell me why, if what I have to say is so offensive, do so many people come here? Only the shadow knows.
This is Robin Westbrook, saying "so long for now."
