the problem of abortion - Curiosity killed the... wait, what was I talking about?

Mar. 26th, 2009 04:08 pm the problem of abortion

"For men, abortion is a question of science, law, morals; for us women, it is a matter of violence and suffering. Whereas we demand the abrogation of all punitive abortion laws, and the provision of adequate resources so that abortions are performed in the best possible conditions, we refuse to consider this problem separately from all our other problems, from sexuality, maternity, the socialization of children, etc..." - the Collective of Via Cherubini, Feb 22, 1973. Cited in Sexual Difference, p. 62.

I wonder if @darcy has read this book. It was key in understanding my @relationship with @troy ... so much that i tracked down a copy of their original manifesto book and have it on my shelf. but i've never been able to write the project that integrates the two.

I should call darcy and tell her she has "permission" to go in my room and on my shelf if she'd like to see where that book is ... in my family doors don't mean absolute privacy, but rather spiritual privacy. my parent's house has two sets of barriers on most doors - a spiritual barrier and a physical one .. so i'm not used to having to use a physical barrier to convey both. but I know @Kat - cat - their cat and @darcy would understand.

goodnight, reality. *rock me to sleep* food ... hungry, angry, lonely tired, HALT, 12-step ... goodnight.
