Me and the F-Word Blog Awards
I woke up this morning to discover that I have been nominated for a Canadian F-Word Blog Award in the Support Bro category.
And I just want to say I'm very honoured. I don't deserve an award. But I am really proud to be a strong supporter of women's rights.
Although to be honest I didn't really have a choice. I grew up in a household with three generations of feminists, my granny, my mum, and my sister. And the matriarchy RULED.
The boys picked up after themselves, did the dishes, their laundry.... cooked dinner on Sundays. And when granny spoke about the long struggle of women for equality they listened....or else.
So I naturally grew up believing that women were the superior gender, and nothing I've seen so far has changed that opinion. Or the conviction that if women ran the world it would be a better, kinder, gentler, and safer place.
And then of course as a gay guy I share the same enemies as the women's movement. The brutish forces of the patriarchy that would force us all back to the Middle Ages.
So joining my sisters at the barricades isn't just a duty.... it's a pleasure eh?
Anyway, that's all I want to say except thank whoever nominated me. Congratulate the good people at A Creative Revolution for hosting the awards. And urge everyone to go vote for your favourite feminist.
And by so doing support ALL of them.
Support bro? Woo hoo !!!!
I LOVE that word....
