Still watching the show about the 14 women senators.  I am beginning to realize the sad truth about women...in order to succeed, we have to define our success from a man's world point of view.  There is no women's world, built up over the centuries and that would only be accomplished in a French Revolution sort of way, women rising up, taking over and radically changing what human life is like. 

I mean, everything would have to be tweaked in such a way that whole school of thought would be out the window.   Like how would like be if life started by people living in villages peacefully and raising kids (not to say women can't be violent, but a lot of war, greed and violence in history was started by men) and success was judged by how communicative and open you were, not on rising to the top and being cut-throat competitive.  

I don't feel real feminism will happen until woman change their names too.  As a woman, I am stuck between keeping my dad's name or marrying my boyfriend and taking his name, even being known as Mrs. Boyfriend's Last Name, like I don't have an identity of my own, only via my husband and friends of mine my age or younger still do this when they marry.  Maybe we should all change our names to something we like more than do our lines through our children, or even that hyphen thing between two names, but ours would have to be changed to reflect a female line, not the male one we came into life with.

It bothers me a lot.   I don't see my success in a male sense at all, not by material goods, pay rates, etc.  I see my success if developing my inner world and feeding my spiritual and intellectual sides.   Not by seeing how I can rise to the top or beat someone else to a job.  

And also, I don't think the feminism of my mom and the 70's still even exists.  I feel younger women want to be more like Kim Kardashian then Hilary Clinton.   When I grew up, my role models as women were women writers, poets, scientists, artists and people making a difference.  Not someone who is known for being pretty and that's it.   I even see it in bras.  In the 70s until now, I used to be able to find nice strong supportive pointy bras that said "I am women, hear me roar".  Now, the bras seem to be lower and more on the ribcage, more sad and depressed than rising high.   Is that how girls of today are?

Which was weird because all yesterday and today, I've been watching films about liberated women in Berlin and Paris in the 30's.  I watched another film called "Paris Was a Woman."   Today, I watched a documentary about the 14 women US senators.  Then I learned it was IWD...uncanny.

I keep running into people who say their pet or other animal got "murdered".  But an animal can't be murdered.  I tend to keep my mouth shut on the matter to not look like a know-it-all, but WTF?

I keep seeing commercials with people portraying Lincoln and Washington, but then a few have Ben Franklin in there too and he wasn't even a president.   Why is Ben Franklin in the commercials anyway?  Maybe I can link a few of them here to show people. It's so weird.

Feel free to join one or all of these groups.  I haven't been posting to them but wanted to make them available so they don't get deleted.  Thank you.  I am also the person who started this group.   Any questions, let me know.

I like it when it gets in the high 50s here in San Diego and everyone freaks out because it is "freezing" and they don't go outside, which makes it great for an introvert like me who loves weather in the 50's and 60s. So I get my world mostly to myself in winter and the sun sets at 4pm...I love the night, so that is fun.  
What do you love about the wintertime?
