So I will leave with this quote, that really spoke to me when I read it. Probably because a lot of the stuff I believe is summed up so nicely in it.
If women are supposed to be so liberated nowadays, then why do we require such deprogramming? Why can't we be permitted to want what we want? - Wendy Shalit, Girls Gone Mild
It's so true and just hits the nail on the head! Especially since I believe the exact thing, and actually wrote about how we went from one form of oppression to another, as Shalit shows in her book. I even wrote about this in another post:Feminism and Homemaking. We seem to be forgetting that liberation means freedom for us to CHOOSE to do what it is we want to do, and are still forcing everyone to fit into one mold.
I wish I could just read all day, but I have to work today, so as appealing as calling in and just sitting on the couch wiht Shalit's book sounds, it's not happening. At least not today. ;-)
