When I first took up a keyboard for blogging purposes there were very few feminist blogs. Now they are many and the voices are powerful and diverse. That is a wonderful, wonderful change.

That poster has nothing to do with the topic of this post, except for the fact that the same fears still crop up about feminism. If they are not about women's suffrage they are about women in the military or about women as presidents. Any progress for women is interpreted as bad news for men and for children. Sigh. We will never have a female Pope.
