Professing * Reflecting

Tuesday, May 23, 2006

"Act as if you are always (already) pregnant . . ."

. . .in order to maintain good health. This just in, from whom: Misogynists-R-Us? The Society for Uber-Heteronormativy? The Junior League of Just When You Thought You Had Transcended Your Ovary Determined Identity?

Yes, all three of which are more commonly known as the United States Government.

It's the rhetoric here that is disgusting. Why not just say: as a woman, you should take folic acid, maintain a healthy weight, and avoid alcohol and tobacco from an early age in order to maintain good physical health?

Frightening times. I am anxiously awaiting the federal guidelines on the health benefits of keeping women barefoot.
