Femme Philosophers

I've been honored!

My good friend jugglingpaynes has created a new award for Femme Philosophers!

Here is her explanation of how this new honor came about:

"I've been lucky to find a number of women here and in real life who challenge me to think, but also offer me a secure sounding board. I know they will still be friends even if our ideas differ. It's not as important to me that they agree, just that they are as respectful of my opinions as I am of theirs."

"I don't want to rehash our discussion here, except to say that it ranged from war, tolerance, and supporting our troops to the plight of Afghan women and how to prevent abuse. Weighty topics for late-night e-conversation. Anyway, my enjoyment of our late night talk made me joke that we should have our own Fem Philosophers Club. But my little jest doesn't seem to want to let go of me. So I'm thinking I will turn this into a kind of tag. Don't worry, I'm not going to make you pick 5 people or make a list of your random thoughts." These will be the rules:

Choose a button.

"If you are awarded the Femme Philosopher, you are now able to stick a Femme Philosopher button on your blog. If you are savvy of these things (I'm not) you can also link it on the post that won it for you. Copy these rules to include on your post so that others will know what it's about.

Now you are free to give this award to others! Along with blogs you agree with, please look for blogs that are not necessarily your views, but rather ideas that stir thought and allow for respectful discussion in their comments. We cannot stimulate our own thought processes without running up against some opposing views. (With this in mind, it is not necessary for the Femme Philosopher to be femme. It's named for the femmes that started it.) Use it as often as you like or not at all (killjoy).

I want to start things off by awarding a button to MOMflippedisWOW at her Balderdash & Blokus address. She inspires my thought be it through boiled frogs or patriotic spam. Congratulations, my friend, go forth and inspire others to think outside of their comfort zone."

I would graciously like to accept this award and say

Thank you, Christina.

I, too, enjoy our rambles into provoking thoughts of the whys and wherefores

of life.

You are a treasure!
