I am off to argue with people I agree with...

...which means I'm going to the National Women's Studies Association conference in Chicago. Or, rather, west of Chicago. I anticipate many hours spent waiting for the NWSA shuttle to take me to the conference site. Must remember to pack knitting and a book. Sigh.

Point is, you won't be hearing from me for a few days because I will be busy conferencing. However, this is a conference that has in past years drawn folks like Mary Daly, Sheila Jeffreys, Wendy Chapkis, and other controversial feminists. So...I may return with stories.

I am off to pack. See you when I get back.

Well...I actually didn't go to either Jessica Valenti's panels or to Gail Dines and Robert Jensen's panel. I just couldn't bring myself to go, as I'd had plenty of drama for one conference by that time, already.

But I did think of you, and wonder which panel you and Belledame would have had me attend, as Valenti and Dines/Jensen were at the same time.

Jensen, hands down, but you might have had to subdue me with extreme force...
