To love at all

I'm just going to post a link to an awesomely illustrated C.S. Lewis quote. It's good.

Feminism and Motherhood: not incompatible

One of my Facebook friends just posted an article from Thought Catalog entitled "I look down on young women with husbands and children and I'm not sorry." The gist of the article was that women who choose to marry at a young age are sacrificing their opportunities for adventure, travel, happiness, etc. Oh, and they are choosing to do something just about anyone could do instead of something that really stretches them and helps them grow. I understand that not every woman's goal is marriage, but unlike the author of the article, I think being a feminist really does mean supporting every woman's right to choose what she wants to do with her life, without stating that a particular choice (in this case motherhood) is worthless.

Thoughts for the New Year

It's almost the end of January and I haven't written a post since last year. I've had a few ideas, but none of them made it from my brain to the computer screen (unless I count the paper I'm writing for an academic conference in March and other assorted assignments). Perhaps, so as not to overly neglect the aforementioned assignments, I will make a quick list of things I'm thinking about. After all, this blog is supposed to be about thoughts, right?
