the Don Imus situation. I commented that many young women didn't appreciate the battles that women in history took on for us to get the vote, access to birth control, equal pay, freedom from harassment, etc. I further commented on the demeaning images in the media that portrays young women as objects to be used - told husband I found this very disturbing. These young women seem to be accepting of this as the norm. Of course, my hyper-aware ktbug (in the living room with television blasting) came in with question after question. Our conversation came down to self respect. While I am not a militant feminist, there are times I feel that I must present a militant attitude toward kt for her to understand the concept of self respect for her body, her emotions - her life as a whole. It was hard to balance this & let kt know that not all of the male gender treat women as "ho's" or their "b*tch's". (kt has heard this type of talk at school/day treatment when boys are describing their girlfriends.) Have you found a good way to discuss this with your daughters - difficult child or not?
