Whoa, lotta shit goin’ down. April 26, 2008Posted by phledge in fat, feminism, phlegm.
This blog, for me, is just a place for my random thoughts and emotional venting. I like to pick my ideas apart in front of everyone (yeah, all—what is it, now, seven?—all seven of you) and allow others to help me clarify what’s right and good and holy about humanity. So I’m a little worried that maybe I should be more aware of all the feeds that come into my brain, have a little tango, and wash back out onto my shores, based on seeing what’s been going on with the whole blogger of color/white feminist privilege thingy. (I will not name names here because I don’t think I have even a sliver of insight about the conflict.) Let me say this here: if you see something here that belongs to you, or if you think I’m wagging my privilege, call me on it. Please. The last thing I would want to see would be someone feeling left out or taken advantage of because I’m a little bit of a bull in a china shop. I try try try to be cautious and compassionate and I don’t expect someone to “correct” my privilege—that’s mine alone to deconstruct—but I know I don’t always succeed.
Oh, and if you feel so inclined, I’m always looking for folks to put on the blogroll. If your name isn’t there it’s not because I don’t like your blog but rather because, for a future medical professional, I actually have a rather short attention span. Oo, daisies!
