You All Wish You Were On My Mom’s "A Distaff View" Email List

There’s “Humor in Uniform”:

While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board the usual information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.

Finally, she said, ‘Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan ’

An old Master Sergeant sitting in the eighth row thought to himself,
‘Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman? ’

When the attendant came by he said ‘Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?’ ‘Yes,’! said the attendant, ‘In fact, this entire crew is female.’ ‘My God,’ he said, ‘I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don’t know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit.’

‘That’s another thing, Sergeant,’ said the crew member,
‘We No Longer Call It The Cockpit’

‘It’s The Box Office.’


There’s Empowerment:


‘Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.’   

There’s some Crone Jokes:

And, there’s Spirituality:

Women are Angels.
And when someone breaks our wings,
we simply continue to fly….on a broomstick.
We are flexible like that.

“What I find often in the movement is that we’re so busy understanding the fullness of our victimization, we’re forgetting our power to do it to others. That balance needs to be really worked on and achieved so that we can come into the movement in a healthier and more healed fashion. Because I find a lot of people bring their wounded selves to the movement and they think it’s the movement’s job to heal them. And it’s not. The movement’s job is to liberate them; that’s a different project.”

God yes. Also not the movement’s job to provide you with a living via your writings about said movement in lieu of movement work.
