RECYCLED ART JOURNALS
I make unique Art Journals featuring repurposed and rescued vintage book covers. Each journal is bound by hand and completely one-of-a-kind. Inside every Art Journal you’ll discover an inspiring mixture of colors, textures and patterns that coordinate with the cover: 100 hand-cut pages of vintage and modern paper, authentic vintage book pages and other ephemera.
Same-sex spouses, who cannot divide their labor based on preexisting gender norms, must approach marriage differently than their heterosexual peers. From sex to fighting, from child-rearing to chores, they must hammer out every last detail of domestic life without falling back on assumptions about who will do what. In this regard, they provide an example that can be enlightening to all couples. Critics warn of an institution rendered “genderless.” But if a genderless marriage is a marriage in which the wife is not automatically expected to be responsible for school forms and child care and dinner preparation and birthday parties and midnight feedings and holiday shopping, I think it’s fair to say that many heterosexual women would cry “Bring it on!”
Gay marriage can function as a controlled experiment, helping us see which aspects of marital difficulty are truly rooted in gender and which are not. A growing body of social science has begun to compare straight and same-sex couples in an attempt to get at the question of what is female, what is male. Some of the findings are surprising.”
Fantastic, necessary article by Liza Mundy on what gay couples can teach us about healthy, happy marriages as society’s conception of marriage in general continues to evolve.

- Helen Keller, 1911
Why did we learn about Helen Keller’s childhood in school and not about the socialist and feminist advocacy that was her focus for the vast majority of her adult life? She was a suffragette and a disability rights activist! She helped to found the ACLU! She was a member of the Wobblies! She supported birth control and the rights of sex workers! In school her story always ended when she went off to college and “became a writer.” She was a badass political activist, not an inspirational disability trope, and if we learned about that we would think of her as more than just a joke in Apples to Apples.

Step aside, fellas! The art of grilling is an equal-opportunity activity, despite generations of marketing designed to make it look guy-centric.
