Feminist Mormon Housewives

I just noticed this new LDS blog (“Feminist Mormon Housewives: angry activists with diapers to change“), maintained by two self-described feminist Mormon housewives. The blog has some funny and thoughtful posts, such as:
The Prozac Relief Society: “Is it just me, or does it seem like every LDS stay-at-home mother is on some anti-depresant or another?” (So that’s what they do in homemaking meeting!)
-“sweet, innocent, and pure” — should a thirty-year-old mother take that characterization as a compliment? (Representative quote: “Is my purity really the best thing about me? I beg to differ.”).
-and a post about being appreciated as an “independent thinker.”

FMH looks like a great new (ish) addition to the bloggernacle!

    Yes it is a very insightful and fun blog to read. And it is yet another example of a ‘Mo blog that doesn’t allow for anonymous comments — as if the blogger.com comment system didn’t stink up the house enough already. Yech. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh. :)

    Just bite the bullet Daniel and set up an account.

    OK. I bit the bullet. Here’s my new blog:


    Somehow I don’t think I’ll be asking for this one to be listed at “A Soft Answer”

    Ah, I felt that last comment was too mean-spirited. I deleted that badly-named blog. Sorry ’bout that.

    You are such a party pooper, Dan. I was so excited to post on such a blog (I have a few issues). Then you go ruin my fun and take it away.

    That’s it. I am never going to church again.

    Part of the problem Kim was that I couldn’t find any of those red hot pepper thingies to sprinkle around the site design. :)

    Hmmm…maybe I should create a blogger template. ;)
