I think I'm going to have to whine at HydeLoveDM to see if she minds me using her scans for TnK again... or else find some way of purchasing that issue. *ponders*
I don't think that article is funny. It basically blame women for the "social problems of the nation’s children" because they left home for work.
I think it's too bad that generally when people think of feminism, they only think about radical feminism that seems to put all the blame on men, which hardly encompass what feminism is.
I thought it was interesting to read the outsider view of what the American 'mindset' is like - I just picked the line about feminism at random to use as the text to click onto..

*places a pillow under nepenthes59's head* sleep tight!
it's good that some websites give culture tips about the US, we tend to think we know all about Americans just becoz we drink Cherry&Cola everyday, but it's not true ^_^
thx for posting this
mmm... i'm a total feminist but it's true that empty households cause many wrong things now. i just wish pple could remember that men are responsible for their absence too

There, I've just gone and done the unthinkable... I read that entry at the hydeist comm.
Now I feel all dirty and sinister. XDDD
Anyway, just wanted to point out that "sinistra/sinister" has had an association with evil for quite some time. Whether this connection started in the way the poster points out, or in any other, that's up to be discussed by historians... and I'm sure there are plenty of theories about this.
Yet, "left" has been considered to be "not right" (Please, give me extra points for the lame pun. kthx.) for quite some time.
Even in the Bible you will find that association (the good ones will stand at God's right, and the bad ones at God's left... then the fun begins.)
Left-handed children in the past were forced to use their right hands instead of the natural inclination to use their left hands.
Some people were suspected of witchcraft and association with the devil because they were left-handed; and prosecuted by the European Inquisition for it.
It's not derogatory or mean to say this. Humanity has learnt over the time to be slightly less idiotic (although it still keeps 99% of its natural, original-flavor idiocy) and not to cling to "magical" thoughts.
Of course in some cases science helped us learn the reasons behind such mind-bending wonders, which is where the illumination period fits in after the dark ages.
In spite of all this, well... not all of humanity has learnt... =/ not all of humanity has lost the idiotic trace, and not all of humanity can make a lot of money out of it.
Ermm.. who or what is HydeLoveDM? Sorry if I sound ignorant... but I was wondering if it's ok for me to use these scans for my icons?
Hyde is just so irresistible in them!
Thanks for posting them though...
