John Roberts astro chart, Feminists and Racism = a Pro Abortion volley

Assuming he will be confirmed, transiting Pluto will be conjunct Roberts' Ceres in 2007-2008, by which time he may become the swing vote when the Supreme Court re-visits Roe v. Wade.~tarot.com

odd, Searching Under His Robes = conservo judge/clerk gosswhore but good links

ok yeah his wife is a Feminist for Life...
In 2001, she was identified as the “FFL board counsel,” and in the Summer 2002 FFL quarterly, The American Feminist, Roberts is listed as a member of the “Elizabeth Cady Stanton Circle” of fundraisers, who have raised between $1,000-$2,499 for the organization.
~http://thinkprogress.org

and from the FFL president in response to attacks:
...since those who first defined the movement, British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, early American feminist Susan B. Anthony, founder of the Seneca Falls Convention, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and author of the Equal Rights Amendment, Alice Paul, all opposed abortion on the basis of civil rights and as an exploitation of women.

Hmmm. Interesting that they neglect to mention the Seneca Falls Convention's racism and Sojourner Truth's fight to the podium to spit her Ain't I A Woman speech 4 years later.

If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back , and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them. ~Sojourner Truth
Don't get me wrong the Seneca Falls Declaration was sweet, and you can tell by the language that they were trying to push for ALL equality...or maybe I'm just really good at recognizing the double speak...

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one portion of the family of man to assume among the people of the earth a position
different from that which they have hitherto occupied,
In contrast,
"Women of color were discouraged from taking part in the first women's rights convention in 1848, in Seneca Falls. Although the great Black abolitionist Frederick Douglass participated, not a single woman of color was recorded to be in attendance."

So yes Feminists For Life, go ahead and tout the early feminists for showing you the way...BUT DO NOT USE PEOPLE OF COLOR TO SELL YOUR AGENDA ON YOUR WEBSITE!

"basis of civil rights", HAH!


*rubs eyes* Aren't these the bitches who show up at UCLA with the giant posters of aborted fetii?

Got an award one day at UCLA and had to walk past them with both my parents, my dad who's just shrugging because god knows HE SO DOES NOT WANT to get into a convo about abortion with ME and my mother who was all religious (still is) and didn't want an abortion back in the day (i.e. ME)...so we of course stop at the table so my mom can sign their petition.

I'm like "no thanks" when they paw at me, the chick's like "are you for the death of little babies?" I'm like, "yes, actually".
The chick's all taken aback and then I'm like "well actually I once read this theory that a woman should be able to abort a baby up to TWO years after birth...and yeah, that seemed ok." [deadpan]

My mom starts laughing and so do I, my mom goes "Faith, you're really sick ya know?" and I turn to the lady as we leave, "It's just that some kids might have a better chance in another life, that's all..."

Of course I was getting an award for leadership so I'm not saying I wish I was aborted, but I am a firm believer that kids should be a blessing not a mistaken curse, cause THEY'RE THE ONES WHO GET TO LIVE IT OUT..not the parents. And then they in turn have kids who stand a good chance of getting mistreated...and the wonderful cycle of life goes on.

I see abortion as a women's and kid's right issue, but that really goes to my deepest belief that fetus/children do not suffer more than a momentary flash of confusion...vs. a whole lifetime of unwantedness and perhaps even worse, because I'm pretty sure that most people who don't want to have a baby, THEY REALY DON'T WANT TO BE PREGNANT, hence the abortion.

In this society a woman is often her children, there's an unspoken, spoken and even legal bond...and if a woman decides she'd rather not enter into that contract...that's a good thing.

Meet John Roberts

Seneca Falls reminds me of a falling out I once had with a few harcore feminists at a college newsmag...they were discussing an issue's cover art. They hit on the great idea of showing the progression of feminism over the centuries. Swear to god they were like, "So we'll show 2 white women in old-fashioned dress staring out of a window and back at them are 2 people of color feminists smiling" I guess they were attempting to show that the world view of feminism is better than a localised activism.

Nah, they prolly weren't.
For real they couldn't get it thru their heads that the art could be a diss to all those WOMEN of color in old fashioned clothes, the ones WHO DID AND ALWAYS HAVE EXISTED...the multiple minority who's often the loudest of all because we damn well have to be...
I wonder...wouldn't it make more sense for women with slavery heritage to be stridently pro-choice? After so many years of enslavement and loss of that choice...I wonder.

Perhaps next time I speak with a worker in the Black Christian Industrial Complex I'll float the theory. "So if the white man was still raping us, wouldn't you want abortion as an option?"

Harsh, I know, but why don't we all take a few moments to remember the MANY women who might have pondered this question over the centuries.

Nice to have a computer, the nets, and a voice ;)

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham

activist/writer/speaker

There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube. 

After spending time working in corporate America doing digital strategy for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and co-creating …

Transphobic reporting from Rolling Stone?

The Mystery of Larry Wachowskiby PETER WILKINSON for ROLLING STONE

Overall the piece reads like a well informed look at a famous transsexual. It's not.

J. Michael Bailey, a professor of psychology at Northwestern University and the author of The Man Who Would Be Queen: The Science of Gender-Bending and Transsexualism, is a vocal proponent of the science behind autogynephilia, and although he declined to comment about Larry Wachowski, he did describe typical autogynephilic behaviors. "Autogynephiles frequently mention having a longing to be a girl that begins in childhood," says Bailey. "But the first outward manifestation of it usually crops up in early adolescence, when they discover that it turns them on to wear women's clothing. What you do not see, despite frequent claims to the contrary, is evidence that these folks were notably feminine in childhood." - The Mystery of Larry Wachowski
