Sufferage

Saturday June 28, 2008

Why is "sufferage" the term used for women voting? Is it the poll lines? The hanging chads? The pregnant chads? The dimpled chads?

Well if that's the case, they should have named them hanging, pregnant and dimpled Chadettes.

Maybe it is called sufferage because as women we can vote, but we must still suffer under the rule of the male dominated political machine.

How is that for a femminist comment?

LOVE IT! How about we have feminist comment day. I'll have to come back though 'cause I'm busy burning the jock strap Spouse makes me wear as a bra.
