My Mother the Cool Dresser; Accessorized to Kill

By HomeRearedChef, published on Jan 11, 2013

...came to serenade, with poems and with songs, and even once or twice were drenched with water by her ever watchful mother. Those poor, poor lads!

She was like a tigress on the prowl, but her hunger was sated just from knowing she was admired and desired. Even now that she is a Senior Citizen other women will envy her striking good looks. And even now she hides her age well-enough that she makes a game at keeping them guessing. Oh, how I wish I could have been like her, or even carry myself like her now; to have that kind of poise and self-assured confidence. Oh, and how I wish….

Sister, my Sister

By Anastasia , published on Jan 6, 2013

...did not want her to die in India. She did die. She died on 29 December, when I was skiing on the slopes of French Savoy.

As the details of the horror became public the mood in India turned toxic. There were widespread public protests in a country where rape and violence against women is commonplace. Not only that but the law is notoriously slow in dealing with accusations of sexual assault. There was only one conviction from the 635 cases of rape reported in Delhi between January and November of last year.

Most of India’s rape victims are poor and generally of a... (more)

The Delhi ASSAULT

By Rahul, published on Dec 27, 2012

...even believe how men could go to such extreme for sexual pleasure. She got more furious and started suggesting how those men responsible should be sentenced to painful death, I listened silently not able to utter a single word to calm her down. I could have but I just didn’t because a women treated gravely anywhere in the world were, are and will be a shame for all men alike.

For months I have wanting to write about the immoral exploitation of women and children all around the country, and now the latest brutality that happened in Delhi has urged me to do it now. The news... (more)

Oh, Cursed, Wretched Menopause, When Will I Be Free?

By HomeRearedChef, published on Nov 14, 2012

Between the untimely crying, and occasional forced laughing—often mingled with more crying—everyone can see that I take center stage. I wear a double-sided painted face—a smile and a frown. I am the main attraction!

And nobody says anything to me, no sir-ree; I think they wouldn’t dare—my being menopausal and all. But if they could, they’d surely have plenty to say, and with good reason. No-one knows from one freakin’ minute to the next what mood I’ll be in or just who to expect to see: Me or the Banshee. Why…even I never know what mood I’ll find me in, or to what side of the bed I’ll... (more)

Angels of Entanglement

By p.d.adams, published on Mar 20, 2012

... imagines creatures in a time before science.

She thinks. Here is the place where they know they are theHumans and I am machine--where understanding shouldn't matter. Yes, her formal language is beyond political ideology, beyond their logic, and yet, there's the ongoing debate about [solar women android meta-program launch of graphic intellectual computers="swamp_logic"].

Is it theJungle and its own quantums--geometrics of signal processing in fempto space--that are meant for future entitlement addictions? Is there a natural twisting and bungling of neuroscience for bright... (more)

The Sundown Laws of the 1930's

By Patricia Adams, published on Mar 4, 2012

...the driver says under his breathe, but loud enough for everyone to hear. He jams on the brakes and swerves the bus to the curb. Mama gathers up our belongings, takes my hand, and leads me to the back door of the bus. When the door opens, we don’t get off.

As soon as Mama sees the Black women are on the bus, Mama calls out to the driver in an apologetic tone, “Ohhh, my mistake, I thought this was our stop.” We go back to our seats.

The bus driver shrugs and drives on, but when Mama makes the same “mistake” several more times, forcing the driver to stop, he loses his... (more)

On the Origins of Gender Balance

By MUGISHO N.THEOPHILE, published on Feb 13, 2012

Worldwide, some people would admit that the relationship between men and women is top-heavy and even biased. Others wonder if gender balance is not a western invention and culture. I believe hindering women’s rights is individual’s commitment not to consider women as human beings. This situation has been existent in the world for ages, it is not particular to a given community.

There exist too many debates on gender balance throughout the world. This is often referred to as gender equality. We note today that in some countries consensus exists that equalities of opportunities, such... (more)

Spiritual Abuse: Darkness You Can Feel

By Thom Hunter, published on Feb 3, 2012

...damnation delivered by those who deem themselves our judges, we emerge from the pursuit of purity not without blemish. Perhaps I was not necessarily destined to fall again, but I did.

For those of you who have not wandered through the dark and seemingly-endless tunnels some men and women do -- of sexual addiction, homosexuality, pornography addiction, adultery or other form of sexual brokenness -- reach deep within and thank God for the grace that He has extended to allow you to avoid all that . . . and then extend that grace to those who dwell in an indefinable darkness. You... (more)

Understanding Women - What Really Turns Us On

By Felicia Stevenson, published on Oct 27, 2011

I'm one of those women who love too much. I fall in love quickly, and sometimes have mistaken infatuation for love. I'm 33 and have only been in a committed relationship for about 7 years (on and off, but still)

So while I don't really like to think about it, much less admit to it, and won't share numbers, I guess I've "known" many men.

Throughout those different relationships, some lasting a few months, others up to two years, I've been different sexually with every one of my partners. I've come to realize that I wasn't the problem, various partners were because of the way... (more)

Kobi Levi Shoes: Fashion Meets Art

By Felicia Stevenson, published on Oct 19, 2011

His designs are shoe sculptures, and they are from another world, original, humurous and wonderfully imaginative.

Levi tells us that each design can take about a month to complete, and that prefers quality over quantity, no doubt the secret of his success.

His unique shoe designs, like the "Coffee time" shoe, have certainly made a "splash" in the fashion world. (hahaha)

Apparently, Lady Gaga has purchased pieces from Levi's collection, which doesn't surprise me at all, since she the first person who came to mind when I saw them!

I've always had a bit of a shoe fetish,... (more)
