One of the blogs I read sporadically is written by a young Saudi girl. In a recent post, she wailed about how "Chivalry is Dead". One of her commenters told her that the feminists killed it.
Perhaps so. I do know one thing - if I had it all to do over again, I would STILL consider that:
equal pay for equal work,
the right to vote,
the right to own my own property,
the right to make my own decisions,
the right to education,
the right to freedom of movement and freedom of choice,
the right to decide for myself who to marry, or when, or if,
the right to say NO,
the right to dress and eat and do as I wish,
the right to a profession
the right to be a HUMAN BEING, and not PROPERTY
would STILL be more important to me than having some dork open the door and bow as I pass thru.
Sorry boys. Just sayin'
St. Paul the Lutheran Minister is technically my Brother. We are (allegedly) Brother and Sister. That is a relationship.
Amanda is my daughter. We are Mother and Daughter. That is a relationship.
Tom is my boss. We are Supervisor and Employee. That is a relationship.
Leandra is my friend. We are friends. That is a relationship.
Anybody get where I'm going with this yet?
Ok. Here is the deal. I hear so many people using the word "Relationship" to describe dating or marriage or lustily hopping into the sack, and it seems everyone is forgetting that the word "Relationship" is far more all-encompassing than just fuck-related.
Why are we limiting this highly useful and demonstrably versatile word?
