Ok…so you know. Sex and politics…two of my favorite sports. Two things that I dont think most women are concerned enough with to deeply engage all of their beings: sex and politics. Two things that I believe effect each woman–more than anything else–need to concern themselves with because sex is internally personal to each woman and politics controls how society governs womens sexuality.
To say that I was disheartened by the coverage of Palins return (read that as retreat!) to Alaska a few days ago, when she was treated like royality with her fake smile and pagent wave, would be quite an understatement.
However….today I read a post (with a great YouTube video and incredible pictures) of the “Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally” at Mudflats. It gave me strength to remember that the media does not always show the truth! Apparently, the “Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally” received more support than Welcome Home Rally for Sarah Palin on that same morning. Although many can say how loved and admired Palin is within the state of Alaska, the pictures and video do not lie.
AKMuckraker, the author of Mudflats, muses that the “Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally” “was organized by a small group of women, talking over coffee. It made me wonder what other things have started with small groups of women talking over coffee.” Very intelligent indeed…the world has been changed by small groups of women chatting over coffee. Except now, we do it over blogs! ~~Dee
