Fascinating, don’t you think, that those folks working so diligently on matters of energy for the US of A, would be at all interested in what one feminist poet posts on the interweb, eh? Even more fascinating to this poet is the page on which those interested folks choose to enter and leave P’n’P. If it were a one-time thing, I’d blow it off, but it’s getting a little boring to see the stats for the Blog-for-Choice page rise each time I post a mildly NO NUKES piece. Or, is it that the folks at LINL are truly concerned for women’s right to reproductive freedom?
Truth be told, I don’t know and I don’t really care. But I’m really happy I thought to check my stats on this hot prairie day.
Unrepentant Old Hippie has nominated me for a Thinking Blogger Award and though I’m a little late on the uptake, I want to thank her for the honour!
The participation rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think, 2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme, 3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (There is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).
Five bloggers who make me think are, in no particular order:
Le Revue Gauche can always be counted on to bring forward the anarcho-socialist pov to any issue that arises and that never fails to make me think twice about my own analysis of the issue.
The Conscious Earth keeps me thinking not only about the environmental havoc we’re wreaking on the planet but also about what we need to do to fix the mess we’ve created.
Accidental Deliberations catches a lot of what the mainstream media misses, or corrects it, and it’s always information that makes me think more deeply about the issues.
Thought Interrupted keeps me up-to-date on many of the goings on in Alberta which makes me think it’s rilly, rilly good to be living in SK!
There are several others that come to mind, such as April Reign, POGGE and Red Jenny, for example. Hopefully someone else will nominate them for the Thinking Blogger Award at some point in the future. So thanks for making me think.
Women bloggers from the USA have issued a call inviting bloggers worldwide to mark today, January 22, 2007, as a day to blog for choice. Tell us and your readers, they say, why you’re pro-choice.
For me, that’s an easy job. I am pro-choice because I believe reproductive freedom is a human right. If women are to ever be equal participants at all levels of society, then the freedom to reproduce at a time of her choosing, or not at all, is entirely up to the individual woman, and not her husband, her family, her government, her doctor, her church, her god(dess).

From what must be one of my kidling’s books, Amelia et les papillons by Martine Noel-Maw, which was sitting immediately to the left of the monitor.
