A library is thought in cold storage. -Herbert Samuel
When I was a teenager, I came across this quote and it has stuck with me ever since. I love the imagery and sentiment that it invokes. This blog is my study of feminism and books and the lives of women and Christianity.
My intent is to discuss books and to encourage peaceful conversation and compassion when we consider opposing views. Topics are likely to include:
- non-binary genders
- LGBT issues
- human rights
- human trafficking
- maternal health
- reproductive rights
- and pretty much any other social issue included in a book that piques my interest and can relate back to feminism.
While doing so, I promise to not rant and will not abide the following things in comments:
- hateful rhetoric
- inflammatory speech
On all sides of any of these issues, I am concerned with respectful discussion. Unfortunately, radical opposites are an unavoidable evil in this world. Any discussion is welcome, including opposing points, so long as it is done respectfully. Bear in mind when making these comments that not everyone will convert to your way of thinking, it is not a requirement in a discussion to agree at the end of it.
If I feel like someone is being inflammatory or hateful, I will warn them first and delete their comments if they persist. I am also not here to be lectured or preached to on any issue. There is a difference between discussion and lecturing/preaching, please respect that.
