I just felt like the coordinator was talking down to me and assuming that because of the factors listed above I was new to their cause and needed to be brought up to speed on the basics or something. There was just this condescending air...I've seen it directed at "the older" woman with a kid in these circles even before I was The Mom myself.
Should I go ahead and do volunteer hours at a center where I'm the old fart (at 27) and The Mom and the definitely uncool one? I hate showing up somewhere and being in that kind of one-down position from the get-go.

So you prescribe: 1. Stop thinking about child abuse and focus on the positive. 2. A campaign to promote empathy. 3. Scholarships for people to become therapists. 4. Community centers and mediation. What would you do for a child who is currently in a home where physical and sexual abuse is happening? I know it's "negative" to think about those kids, but they exist whether I think about them or not.

Eddie Izzard is way too chic for kilts! (I'm anti-snake and anti-kilt. Especially utilikilts. )

I mean lesbians born into the culture of meringue dresses are part of that culture and own it as much as anyone else in...
