KUDOS for post go to Sam and Tracy’s blog “Fit Is a Feminist Issue”:

…As professional philosophers, it’s second nature for us to ask questions: what does it mean to be fit? What are appropriate measures for the goal? And, from a feminist perspective, in what way(s) does women’s quest for fitness and health contribute to empowerment and/or oppression?.. MORE from “About Fit” page


Sam sent me this link to a BBC article entitled “Girls say they hate their vaginas,” quoting Dr. Naomi Crouch, a gynecologist for adolescent girls. Dr. Crouch says, and I agree, “for a girl to feel that way about any part of her body, let alone a part that is intimate, is really upsetting.” The […]

“Indigenize” by getting close to the land we’re born of – How’s that?! 🙂


The question now, is,

  • Knowing that paradigms like the one mapped by Siobhan Senier (2013) existed,
  • whereby dichotomies around alternative gender, human/nature, and now “dis-ability”
  • did not tear the social fabric,
  • how do we, situated in “developed” countries, can best stitch our societies up?

quote from post: ““We mocked and taunted on their fondness of powers of nature, worshipping them, showing gratitude to them!” he said, “We destroyed their cultures. Then with time we realized how much spontaneous was their devotion, how deeper was their wisdom selfless was their thinking.”

“John Lennon sang in 19th century…Imagine no possession, I wonder if you can! Sioux Red Indians did not believe in material possessions, millenniums prior to that!”

“There was a time when we mocked their beliefs!” the professor said, adjusting his tie to ease his neck. Perspiration was forming on the forehead of students and teachers alike. There was a ruckus going on in the college, two kids were caught kissing in the bushes, both were boys! Had one of them been […]

Canada and the US share the same history with the same implications of celebrating, “being grateful for last year’s harvest” (the official meaning of our Thanksgiving in October, their in November). The connection to land, therefore “settlement” on it when it was neither “discovered” per se, nor terra nullius (Lat. “empty land”) as such.

so, indeed:     Happy Indigenous Land! — Every Holy Day
