Watermelon and Grapes

September 13, 2007
Is it offensive to associate my friends with fruits and vegetables?

Over at The Crone Speaks, some commenters are having trouble understanding how anyone could possibly side with Mary Winkler. archcrone patiently tries to penetrate (or should I use the word permeate?) thick skulls:

Public image, and the perception of being the perfect couple was so important that Mary lied to her own father about the bruises her father saw on her body. She never talked about having the shotgun pointed at her, or that Matthew would threaten that gun accidents happen all the time.

Gingermiss discusses Mary Winkler as well.

In my own experience, I find it very difficult for people who have never lived in an abusive environment to understand the workings of an abusive environment.

Union workers go on strike at University of Minnesota and Momo is all over it!

They are not paid enough for the work they do, and it is obscene that the University has the money to build a new football stadium, but not to give a very modest increase to its lowest-paid workers, despite the fact that the legislature targeted money in its last allocation for that purpose.

Em wants to know “What sorts of things do you never write about on your blog?”

One Salford Feminist has a question too. When The Vatican gets into it with Amnesty International?

And pull up a chair around the fireside because Professor Zero has a-middle-class-story to tell.

    Kitty, I finally remembered my blogger password so I can now comment! Thanks for the link. One question, am I a grape or a watermelon?

    Ah, only the grape or watermelon can answer that question.
