BCR held its last regular meeting at the dear old Democracy Center last night, after six years.  We shared our favorite memories of the place, there was laughter, tears, loud noises from the improv group in the next room… and we did a jam comic!    Everyone should always support the Democracy Center, a bastion of ramshackle progressive independence in the now all-too-corporate Harvard Square.  But for BCR… on to the Cambridge Public Library!

And I was there. Farewell old venue.

Points if you can guess which one is mine!

"This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader. And all the grown-ups will say, "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say, "Haven’t you heard? Rick is dead! The People’s Poet is dead!"
R.I.P. Rik Mayall - March 7th 1958 - June 9th 2014

Sad

Forever a Young One.
RIP The People’s Poet.

Why indeed?

fantaszing asked: would you consider yourself feminist?

thisfeliciaday:

Yes.

Feminist: One who supports the cause of feminism.

Feminism: The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.

Pretty simple to support, huh? Man or woman. I think the only reason a person who believes in equality of the sexes would NOT call herself/himself a feminist is because of people who have distorted the perception of the word as a dirty and shameful label the past few decades. But if you reject the word based on how THEY have shaped the perception of it, in an insidious way, you’re letting them define you. 

Go back to the REAL definition of the word, not THEIR distorted definition, and see if it is something you believe in. And can be proud to call yourself. Man OR woman. And go from there.

Because, if you break it down, if you are NOT a feminist, then you do NOT believe in equal rights for men and women. Is that what you believe? Or is it that you’re rejecting what the label has been distorted into? 

It used to be that “geek” was a dirty word, too. A shameful label. Not anymore, thank goodness. 

"Feminist" needs a transformation like that too. It’s overdue.

Yes.
