In-your-face stuff from an opinionated

Excellent article. Very thought provoking and to the point.
You crack me up.Every week you say "I forgot to post my column." It reminds me of me. There are things I do on a regular basis but I still manage to forget to do them.-Miss Georgia
Excellent article! I am a stay-at-home homeschool Mom living directly west of you. (I believe. Bend, OR.) There is a coming cultural earthquake as a generation of homeschoolers, who were reared & educated by their parents at home, start to influence the culture. There are 1st generation homeschooled kids beginning to homeschool their children. It will have impact in ways we don't yet know, but it will be for the good. Lots of folks reared to not believe in feminism. We will see... DWLee3
You make a good point and one I hadn't thought of. Hopefully those experiences will give a wake up call to the rest of the coming generations.
Good Lord.It's hard to believe we're actually paying these folks to spend precious time and resources on legislation that looks like it was spawned by an unholy union of feminism and The Screwtape Letters.They defeated it this time, but knowing them, it will probably be back. Sheesh.A. McSp
That was great!! I used to work at a place where when I worked beside a man doing equal work I got equal pay! I am sure all feminists would be shocked.... my own sister could hardly believe it because she never is paid equally,, would that have more to do with her calling in sick the day she earns a sickday and taking every vacation day the moment it is available ??She was the first laid off of course when times got hard because she is a woman is how she looks at it.
My daughter earned more than some of her male co-workers. The reason--she showed up for work early, often worked through lunch or ate at her desk, and worked late more often than not. Her supervisors sang her praises, but none of the men who earned less knew what she made. They just assumed that everyone made the same or that women made less. They compared notes with each other but never asked her--after all she was just a woman (but one with a good degree who worked hard and got along well with everyone). They also never figured out that one of the reasons she got the jump on some of them was that the secretaries, whom she treated with respect, often told her when new things were coming up that she might want to work on.
