Mothers and Others: Alloparents and Commoning

Categories:

For the Old Mole Variety Hour May 10, 2010.

The well-read red likes to consider histories and holidays: Memorial Day, Columbus Day, and Easter , Queer Pride and International Women's Day.

So, we've noted before, on the Old Mole, that Mother's Day, which began in the 19th century as a grassroots call for peace and collective action, was quickly co-opted as a celebration of nationalism and militarism, and became a hook for capitalist marketing.

Interview with Country music star Chely Wright, who just came out as lesbian

 

In 1999 Chely Wright's dreams came true.  She became a country music star with her hit, “Single White Female,” and topped other charts—People’s 50 Most Beautiful People list, FHMs’ Sexiest Women in Music—and she was collaborating, on stage and off, with some of the country’s most eligible bachelors. She performed around the globe, entertained the military troops, gained awards and mainstream success and maintained her belief in God, family and apple pie.

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Susan Douglas about her new book, Enlightened Sexism: The Seductive Message that Feminism's Work Is Done. Douglas exposes popular images of women in the media as mere fantasies of female power, assuring women and girls that the battle for equality has been won, so there’s nothing wrong with resurrecting sexist stereotypes—all in good fun, of course.

Clergy Abuse: Can we hold the abusers accountable and heal the community?
 
Revelations earlier this month implicating Pope Benedict XVI in cover-ups of clergy abuse in Europe are just the latest developments in an issue that is rocking religious institutions to their foundations. It is dividing communities into those accused of blind faith and those labeled anti-church, while preventing reformers, clergy abuse survivors, and the faithful from moving forward. How can we shift the debate to address the underlying issues creating clergy abuse?
