Patriarchy is at its most potent when oppression doesn’t feel like oppression, or when it is packaged in terms of biology, religion or basic social needs like security, comfort, acceptance and success. Heterosexuality offers women all these things as selling points to their consensual subjection.
…so you don’t have to wait for us to do it! Yay!

We’ve done a re-run of my poetry book and CD, Toward the Clearing, more copies available!
Jean describes her poetry as “a choreography of words” as she joins her poetry with musical accompaniment. Her poetry book includes a CD of the poems accompanied by oboe, English horn, flute, piano, fretless banjo, violin, and balafon in the final product that is a beautiful collaboration with regional musicians and readers. Jean’s work has previously been published in It’s All Relative – Tales from the Tree, and in The Great Smokies Review – Online Publication through UNC Asheville
The Forest Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), PROPOSED REVISIONS to NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ACT (NEPA) REGULATIONS
Sent in from Green Corner, the Montford Community Newsletter – Mitch Russell
I don’t usually advocate and try to remain politically neutral in this column, but to shut out our voices in a process isn’t American. There is a potential change in the US Forest Service National Environmental Policy Act, NEPA, that could have catastrophic consequences. The change could include removing public comments and involvement, as well as not utilizing outside scientific analysis. You may comment using any of the methods at the end of this article, but please do so by August 26 @11:59pm
Pisgah National Forest is the closest to Asheville and in its entire range contains roughly 513,000 acres managed by the Forest Service. There is additional acreage managed by other agencies or entities.

When President Trump tweeted on Sunday that “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen” — an apparent reference to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, who are all women of color — should “go back” to their countries, the backlash was swift. It also sparked another conversation: What makes something racist?
Ibram Kendi, a professor and director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, joined “CBS This Morning” to address that question from a historical perspective and discuss whether racist actions or words make someone a racist. Click to continue

Saying “A Black Lady Sketch Show” is funny is like announcing an iceberg is cold. Well, of course it is. Convene a cast of seasoned comedians and you’re sure to elicit some laughs. But just as a behemoth block of floating ice has depth and breadth beyond what meets the eye, the new HBO series is more expansive and profound than what you might expect from a half-hour comedy. Created by Robin Thede, who previously hosted “The Rundown,” a late-night BET series brimming with political and cultural commentary, “A Black Lady Sketch Show” airs this Friday.

For the past several weeks, a group of us has been working on a project to tell the story of the Mueller Report in an accessible form. The Mueller Report tells a heck of a story, a bunch of incredible stories, actually. But it does so in a form that’s hard for a lot of people to take in. It’s very long. It’s legally dense in spots. It’s marred with redactions. It’s also, shall we say, not optimized for your reading pleasure.
