created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 109-10 Women, in general, give the appearance of being more spiritual than men.

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 94-98Debi starts off this section by discussing the 1989 movie Dad. I haven’t seen it so I have only the wikipedia summary to go off of.

Upon waking up from a coma, the father suffers delusions that he spent his life on a dairy farm, rather than as an aerospace industry worker, and keeps speaking of people who never existed. … [Read more...]
