But again, with my same train of thought from my last post, you can only be responsible for yourself and learning as much as you can.  Just because I want people to know what feminism is really about doesn't mean I should go shoving it down everyone's throat.

This is true. I hope I didn't come across that way; my comments were my first thought upon seeing the postcard.

Oh, and are Uggs those suede boots in ugly colors? Because I hate those...but if they're those fur-covered boots...I have to admit that I really like those, even though I don't buy shoes often.

HA!  No, I said it that way because I wanted to make sure I wasn't being preachy.  Ohhhhh internet, when will you make communicating simple.

Feminism - Allow me to get on my soapbox for a minute; I took Feminist Philosophy over last J-term and really learned a lot about the philosophies behind feminism. Personally, I think it's just fine if you want to be a housewife, a homemaker, a stay-at-home mom or whatever, because a lot of women just feel *right* doing that. However, feminism is about empowering women to have the right to make their own choices - whatever they may be - and I feel that all women should be grateful to the movement for helping them become able to have the right to make the choice to be a homemaker if they choose or a CEO if they choose.
On the flip side, I can see where the writer may be coming from, since a lot of modern-day feminism is associated with the thought that certain women are seen as weak and scared of the world outside of their houses if they choose to become homemakers. While there are extremists like that, feminism is again about choices, and I hope you don't discredit the entire movement because of those extremists.
*gets off of soapbox*

Ditto instantkarma.  Exactly what I was thinking.  It is incredibly frustrating that what feminism is assosiated with has no actual ties to what it really is.  But again, with my same train of thought from my last post, you can only be responsible for yourself and learning as much as you can.  Just because I want people to know what feminism is really about doesn't mean I should go shoving it down everyone's throat.

So, it's okay if you make fun of me, but I like Ugg boots, and want to buy some. But here the only people ever wearing them are really dumb, and really coozy girls that wear them with with dumb things like running shorts. (You obviously aren't going to work out, put real clothes on!) And I have no interest in being associated with them, so I won't buy any. Plus, I don't have like 120 buck to buy shoes.

Bah!  This is a secret swap, so I'm assuming most of these "secret" opinions are not expressed out loud everyday.  People are keeping these thoughts/opinions/judgements to themselves for a reason.  Wear the boots you want to wear and be the size you are.  People's reactions to you and your appearance are ultimately their responsibility and have absolutely nothing to do with you.  Does that make sense?

I'm not trying to preachy at all.  I make totally nasty and irrational judgments about things everyday.  I'm not casting any stones.  I'm just saying that I'm the only person responsible for those thoughts.  I don't run up to the Ugg wearing person and yell YOU SUCK!

I think this swap is a super healthy way to express your odd little pet peeves.

Dork pride FOREVER!

Morning Person: I'm not a morning person either.  I prepare as much as possible the night before.  I pick out my outfit, have a shower and do my hair.  Maybe someday you'll be in a life situation that doesn't require early mornings (or mornings at all).

Here's a questions....when people are seeing their secrets getting posted...if/when you get a positive response do you just want to shout "IT'S ME!  IT'S ME!" ??

I love them both!  The second one is brilliant though.  I bought a Tori Amos shirt at a concert and grossly underesitmated my size.  I think I might try out the blocking idea.  Thanks!

Drinking: I know I don't drink for the taste!

Gay Porn: Excellent!  Maybe you should try and get it published if its something you enjoy doing.  Who know, maybe there's a living in it?

Fly Away: I love this card.  Just remember that you don't need wings to fly.
39  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: FOUND Swap (Send Outs 3/31/2008) <CLOSED> on: April 02, 2008 05:48:26 AM

WalMart - Who cares if it makes you happy?!

Sister - It's always sad when people can't keep their meaness to themselves.  I think one of the meanest things someone can do is rag another person about their weight.  I definitely understand where you're coming from!
