    CULT SURVIVOR I grew up in a evangelical

    fundamentalist group that was ran by my "Family". I escaped child abuse, neglect and the rise of a religious cult. I am finally willing to share my story. The more it gets out there- The safer I am. PLEASE HELP.

    Who's Afraid Of Shariah?

    Hasn't the whole notion of shariah in America gotten a bit out of control? No, it hasn't -- it's gotten hugely, obscenely, ignorantly out of control. How many of those anti-Islam protesters holding "NO SHARIA LAW" signs (as if anyone were advocating shariah law in the U.S...

    I a lot of people when I tell them I'm a "feminist" stare at me and say, "Whart do you mean, by feminist?  Women already have equality!" Yeah, right. It's true that women and women right's advocates have made great strides, but there are still those little things that...

    It Is a Shame

    It is a shame that we still have to fight to be considered equal it is a shame that some people still don't get it and it is a shame when a woman abuses it

    Why Are We Talking About This?

    I am sick of it! Honestly, I don't, have not ever and could not if I tried...see a woman as any less than my total equal. There should not be any discussions, it should have been taken care of long ago and the male dominated bullshit of the past should already be a memory, but...
