On Not Having Children

Still, I’m one of those people who gaze at every single baby photo on Facebook. It’s not that I hate children; that’s just not the life that I want.

On Feminism

“. . .unless you have actually handed in your vote at the White House and said ‘I have no need for this anymore,’ then you are a feminist.”

-Caitlin Moran, author of “How To Be A Woman.” Read the interview here or listen to her talk to Terry Gross. Better yet, do both.

If anyone wants to join me in reading her book and then meet up to discuss I’ll be glad to coordinate. Let me know!
