I am making peace with the fact that Betty Freidan would be disappointed in me. I read an insightful article recently about the growing trend for women to have a picture of their child as their Facebook profile. What does this mean? Does it signify a “voluntary loss of self” as the article suggests.
I am a capital letter F Feminist. I hear this battle cry loud and clear. We are more than our children. We are. We are thinkers and dreamers and writers and people. I understand all of that.
But I don’t have a furry vest and some Minnetonka moccasins. If I did my Facebook profile picture would be a picture of me. And it would look just like this. Well, maybe all but the model thin legs.
