cps

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy Feminism and the blog Homeschoolers AnonymousI recently came upon something posted on HSLDA’s site some years ago that I found interesting, in light of what I have written about HSLDA in the past.

homeschooledgirls

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons So, Robert Knight, an extremely conservative writer for Townhall and whose articles occasionally appear in publications like the Washington Times, wrote an article last Tuesday called “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists.” Since the article spends most of its time talking about grown women, I have to admit to some mild annoyance to the persistent infantilization of women in conservative circles.

And there’s nothing empowering about being beholden to an employer when what you really want is to have a baby. That’s dependency of a different sort.This is the conclusion to which most women have come. Research shows that what women want more than anything else is not to work full-time and year-round but to live balanced lives. … [Read more...]
