Sunday in Outer Blogness: Women and Men Edition!
Today’s trivia question: Which band wrote the song alluded to in my title this week, and the song in this one?
The good news is that the gay marriage question is going in the right direction. Of course the GLBTQ community’s problems are far from solved — indeed some feel that other issues are bigger than marriage. And women’s issues have taken a turn for the worse, prompting some feminists to resurrect the ERA. Fortunately, some men are allies and get it, but not all. Then there’s the whole question of what is gender anyway? Does it matter?
Sorry to keep tacking racial issues onto the end of the sex-and-gender discussion, but it seems like instead of having a big blowout on the subject, we see a few intriguing discussions each week!
Other discussions included the Word of Wisdom, critical thinking for kids, Joseph Smith: prophet or con artist (like somebody else), and the mysterious magic of Mormonism (Oh, and continuing last week’s discussion, it turns out that whole Quakers-on-the-Moon belief wasn’t weird for its time). Are Mormons sweet or sneaky? Don’t miss their best idea ever!
Then we’ve got our perennial topics: those wacky Republicans, arguments for and against God, and polygamy in Mormon history.
The podcast about online forums has prompted lots of introspection about our online habits! Some folks were lucky enough to meet fellow bloggers, others are still hashing things out with family and other Mormons.
And not to miss: for weeks, Diane has been writing parodies of LDS Hymns — she’s passed 23!
Have a great week!
