Fomenting A Rebellion

“If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.” ::Abigail Adams

Well, I’m back. I’ve been a wayward blogger for quite some time now, and I think it’s time to remedy that situation. I’m not saying that I’ll be blogging everyday or always have incredibly insightful things to say … but I’m back nonetheless.

You may think the title and description of my blog implies that I am some sort of radical, feminist, or radical feminist. Well, you’re right.

I’m not one of those scary feminists who thinks women should be the only ones allowed to run the world and all men are bastards. I like men. A lot, actually. Especially when they smell good. I digress. However, I am one of those women who believes that all people – no matter gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. – should be treated equally and fairly. After all, that’s what is at the heart of true feminism – equality.

I won’t beat you over the head with feminist rants, though they will come up from time to time simply because I am one. It is not the only thing that defines who I am, though. I am a radical egalitarian, Christian, pragmatic pacifist, Baptist, classic liberal, activist, student, and friend (among other things). So my guess is that all of those things are bound to eventually pop up when I post on this blog. Deal with it. It is my blog, after all.

So that’s me. You should come back and visit soon.
