Flashback: Sexism is still ALIVE in 2008 Thursday, Dec 11 2008 

     TV addressed sexism even in th 80s.  Degrassi, which has a reputation for “going there” put sexism on the forefront in the “Censored” episode of Degrassi Junior High.

Alexa: L.D., they’re only pictures.

L.D.: No, it’s how people look at women.  It’s important.  If we don’t battle sexism, who will?

    So, are “pictures” a problem?  Absolutely.  Just as the image of feeding beer to a cardboard cutout is disturbing.  Women’s rights faded in importance for awhile, but this election season caused many women to wake up to the sexism we currently face.  If women and enlightened men work together, this guy, Jon Favreau, would be fired for his disgusting facebook already.  In case you were wondering, yes, the picture is still up on his Facebook, clearly nullifying any “apology”.

Lest we be distracted by Blagogate…. Tuesday, Dec 9 2008 

You know they only arrested the Governor to get us to forget about “Gropergate” (coined by Murphy).  *wink*  No, seriously, we can multi-task.  Keep up the pressure to fire Jon Favreau:

Also, give the Chicago Tribune a little love as they were so nice as to print We the People’s birth certificate advertisement.  Blagojevich info: http://www.chicagotribune.com/media/acrobat/2008-12/43789468.pdf

Ok, I’m not surprised that the Illinois Governor was involved in corrupt bribery.  What I am surprised at is that he is being arrested for it.  Will Fitzgerald be able to get Nobama as well before the Electoral College vote?
