The Unfundamental Conversion
Life Cycle Socks

Content Note: Women’s cycle. I did not realize it was a homeschool thing. Or just a conservative thing. Or unique to some families. I thought almost every man er family tracked mom’s cycle, and all the daughter’s cycles too. Libby Anne recently wrote a post on Charting Your (Wife’s) Monthy Cycle. Here’s what she says: …

Shine on my little girl

I write a lot about how missions and travel changed me. Travel led my heart away from fundamentalism and opened my mind to other ideas. Missions forced me to choose between my integrity and belief Add Media in hell. International living led me to see real poverty and real corruption and made me see through …

Feminism matters because people matter. We often say, “Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.” Its true. One day while swimming with a friend on a different continent than my home country, I asked her, speaking a different tongue than I am writing now, “Do you ever wish you were a boy?” She …
