While updating the kids’ coloring links on my site today, I came across this lovely Goddess Coloring Book for grown-ups. It’s free! I plan to print out the pages and have some nice, relaxing time with my markers tomorrow. Hope, I’m thinking of you!

…(T)he term hymen is rooted in the Greek word for membrane. Rather than a fragile membrane that breaks, however, the hymen is actually multiple folds of mucous membrane.
The vaginal corona is a permanent part of a woman’s body throughout her life. It doesn’t disappear after she first has sexual intercourse, and most women don’t bleed the first time.
After reading the article, I have to say that I agree with the reasoning as to why there should be a name change, but I don’t really think it’s going to go far. It’s far better to just continue to work on taking virginity off the ridiculous pedestal upon which it has been placed than on trying to replace one word with another.

I watched it. I don’t feel enlightened.
Maybe it’s just been too long since I thought about this stuff, but what’s so different about applying make-up for 40-year-olds than it is for 20-year-olds?

“Using solitary confinement, Supermax is designed to inflict as much misery and pain as is constitutionally permissible,” he wrote in a letter.
No, really? That’s part of that whole deterrent factor, ya know? Jail isn’t supposed to be a vacation. Maybe you should have considered the possibility of losing a little time in the mountains before you took to being a bomber, Rudolph?
Of course, he still has his life to complain about, unlike some of his victims.
My real question, I suppose, is why is this news? What is our attention being redirected away from?
