Representative Government?

On NPR this morning they said that with this election we now have, I believe, 70 women in the House of Representatives, 16 in the Senate and 9 female governors.

That's 70 out of 435, 16 out of 100 and 9 out of 50.

Have we come a long way, baby?

Alright! I'm sure there is a better use for my femininity anyway...like reforming gay men? Breeding more Christians?

helping to sustain the white master race? baking for church bake sales? fending off the immigrants who want to steal your jobs and take your money

you can read the comment I left on Elena's fight club entry. Basically says that men will soon shrink into their own vagina and women will be in the majority.

I have always said that men are pussies, though...maybe there's some truth to your theory.

I clearly don't belong in a feminist discussion, even as I agree. Usually the way it goes. I agree and offer a theory that might sound silly, but actually saying that men are just becoming less "manly". Far from all, but it's changing, and you come back with "men are pussies". So I'm out of the discussion. What happens when a woman is a pussy? I find some to be weak and overly aggressive just like a lot of men. But I guess if a woman today is weak and scared, it's a man's fault. When I'm feeling weak and scared I'm a pussy? So much for men opening up. We just get called pussies.

I was just riffing on your "men will soon shrink into their own vagina" comment. No need to make it personal.
