"You in the moonlight With your sleepy eyes Could you ever love someone like me And you were…"

“You in the moonlight
With your sleepy eyes
Could you ever love someone like me
And you were right
When I walked into your house
I knew I’d never want to leave
Sometimes I’m a strong one
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cry
But that time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I’d get by”

“Is love so fragile
And the heart so hollow
Shatter with words
Impossible to follow
You’re saying I’m fragile
I try not to be
I search only
For something
I can’t see”

Every morning I think, “Should I look at [redacted]? It gives me a stomach ache.” Then I do, and it does. Radical Skepticism works, hurts.

I met a LOT of these women covering the campaign (Megan, remember the ones who cornered us at the bar in Philly?). Yet another reason for Hillary ‘12.

“This paper analyzes how military service can be a source of women’s antiwar voices, using the Israeli case of “Women Breaking the Silence” (WBS). WBS is a collection of testimonies from Israeli women ex-soldiers who have served in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The WBS testimonies change the nature of women’s antiwar protest by offering a new, paradoxical source of symbolic legitimacy for women’s antiwar discourse from the gendered marginalized position of “outsiders within” the military. From this contradictory standpoint, the women soldiers offer a critical gendered voice, which focuses on criticism of the combat masculinity and gendered identification with the Palestinian “other.” While they reaffirm the republican ethos that grants political dominance to male soldiers, they also deconstruct the image of hegemonic masculinity as the emblem of the nation and undermine gendered militarized norms.”

- Interesting.
