Blogs for Blogs!

I've been reading this very interesting blog Everysaturdaymorning about what life is like for the escorts at a clinic that provides abortions. The aggressive tactics of the "protesters" seem way more psychologically damaging than an abortion. Even if you're anti-abortion, to harrass women in a very difficult time in their life seems to go against the religious concepts of "love the sinner, hate the sin", "he who is without sin cast the first stone" and even the idea that God gives us all free-will. Women are smart enough to make this choice and anyone who claims to know better is just a jackass and a bully.

Such a Pretty Mess...

I think I'm gonna be completely vain for a while. I've been focusing so much on the cerebral that I think I've all but completely ignored the shallow and vain. My skin has gone to shit, I've gained weight and my style, well, it's a bit dated. I'm gonna paint my nails, slather my body in lotion, wear face masks that de-clog my pores, work out five days a week, eat healthy, get my hair cut every three months, floss daily, remove the hair from my body, spray tan, and gloss everything that can be glossed.

Yes, I'm still a feminist. I'm just bored. I have nothing to do! Once September starts I'm going back to the halls of academia again, but for the next few months color me shallow because I'm gonna shine! Literally, I'm gonna reflect the light from all the gloss...

Most likely I'll end up remember why I quit all that high-maintenance crap in the first place and return to my low-key self...

To get us all in the mood for vanity here's some Vanity!
