mermaidgirl, perhaps the thread could be an on-going thing for feminist conferences, marches, etc. and it could start out with info about the Young Feminist Summit? Wish I had a really clever idea for a thread title.

Zora, do you want to do the honors and start the thread for friends and family of the incarcerated or institutionalized?

In the light of everyone "confessing" secrets and sins in ATWT, is anybody up for me re-starting the "little accomplishments" thread, maybe alongside these threads in ATWT (instead of in AbFad where it used to be)? Seems a good way to remind ourselves to celebrate at the same time we are unloading these heavy emotional burdens!

Yes? No?

gumby - the only thread I can think of that might be right is "are we functional yet" in friends & family. (feel free to correct me anyone).

Otherwise, start one up I say!

Love the 'Other Bush'. And great thread idea miss_jane!

Miss Jane, go for it! Name-wise, I'm afraid I'm not much help though.

maybe: The other bush - the politics of shaving? That's a bit constraining though

Thanks for the okay Edna. I think it's a combination of the NOW yearly meeting and the young feminist summit. Definitely all ages are welcome.

I'm not sure whether I should start up a new thread for this one event though. Basically I'm just wondering if anyone else is going, it wouldn't be much of a discussion.

Anyone else want to weigh in? Thread or no?

Is there a thread for busties whose parents are divorced/divorcing? I couldn't find one anywhere but think it would be helpful...for me, at least :-)

I know a thread like this would either die or be troll infested within a couple of weeks, but I was wondering if there was any interest in a feminist thread about beauty i.e leg shaving, cosmetic surgery, makeup, diets, etc. I've noticed a lot of the other thread to do with beauty have a lot of "this is not the place for politics" vibe and i thought it might be interesting to have one with a "this is not the place for hints and tips" vibe.

Any interest?

mermaidgirl, that sounds like a legit topic for the F-Word. I'm an old feminist on the other coast, but I would lurk.

((zora))
Could the thread include those of us with friends and family who are 'put away' in other sorts of institutions? I have a friend and a family member who both entered mental institutions in the last couple of months; sorting out my own feelings about them and their situations is hard, not to mention figuring out healthy ways to be supportive to them.

OK "The Scary Playground of Life - Bullies" thread will be in F&F. I'll go do that now.

i third the idea of a bullying thread. it took me years to (mostly) get past the bullying i experienced every day in elementary school and jr. high.

runningwestward - I have bullying horror stories. I don't know if they will help to hear and they might depress me to tell them, but I think a thread about it might fit well into "Freinds and family." And I like the title "The Scary Playground of Life - Bullies."

zora - I wouldn't be able to add to the thread as I don't have a lot of experience with that, but some others might turn out for it. Again, maybe in "F&F."

Does anyone here have a relative or a close friend that is in jail or prison? My brother is currently in jail and I'd like to have a little support group but I don't know if there is an appropriate thread for that kind of thing, or if there are any people out there going through the same thing. If there are, can you let me know? I'd like to discuss this but I don't know where.
