Rome Hosts Conference on Complementarity  »  Fannie's Room
Last week, several offices of the Roman Catholic church held an event in Rome called The Complementarity of Man and Woman: An International Colloquium. Many American opponents of marriage equality were thrilled by this conference and some, such as Rick Warren, were even speakers. I guess, if you're looking to better understand what is meant by "gender complementarity" that is at the root of many people's opposition to marriage equality and, oftentimes, anti/non-feminism, the conference site would be good to check out.What I'm so often struck by is the almost childish, emotional, romanticized way that complementarists talk about ...

Post-holiday blues  »  Cornish Dreamer
I've been on holiday. Not a long holiday, just a week. It doesn't explain my absence, I know. My first thoughts this morning as I stepped into my cold, dark office, was that I didn't know what I was doing here. The feeling weighed down in my stomach like I'd swallowed some rocks. This isn't me right now. 'Me' is someone else - somewhere else - tasting life and doing things that are fascinating and, quite frankly, cool. Work does not make me feel alive and buzzing like my holiday in Sicily made me feel. Instead, I feel like I've hugged ...

Zaria at the Zoo  »  It's a Great Life
I am Zaria and being featured as a guest blogger on Mom's page. Today I went to the zoo on a field trip. The zoo was very weird...
  • Especially when the giraffe pooped and it looked like rocks.  
  • The giraffe has a new baby sice I've been there and I'm sad to say the old tiger died .
  • When I paid 25 cents for a handful of food I only go 2 pellets. 
  • When I was throwing food into the Zebra Pen and I hit them...I almost hit a Rhino in the distance too. 
  • I loved the rope swing on the huge playground. I

Thoughts on Blogging, Moderation  »  Fannie's Room
In reference to this conversation from awhile back, it seems that the person who made a hate site targeting a popular feminist has shut it down. While the site owner and many participants openly mocked the idea that running a blog is work and scoffed at the very notion of moderation as a necessary component to Internet community and communication, it turns out that, newsflash, both running a blog and moderating it in a way that satisfies all readers is…. oftentimes both difficult and thankless.A significant portion of Internet users expect zero moderation while another significant portion expects moderation ...
