Hi Margaret, it sometimes is difficult being an atheist, a feminist, and especially being raised Southern Baptist.

I love being an atheist and a feminist, as well. There is something about climbing out of limitations placed on one simply because of being born a female.

When I was in China, I visited a hospital and observed the birth of a baby.  The crowning event took place and the mother was excited, full of smiles and looked forward to the birth. As soon as the baby's sex was known, a little girl, the mother began to cry. She instructed the nurse to take the newborn girl away, intending to never see her again. She sacrificed her daughter in order to have a son. In those days, China had a one-woman/one-child policy. She wanted her baby to be a male. Who knows what became of that little baby girl?

China relaxed its one-child policy.

As it turned out, for China, more female babies were killed than male babies. After "35 years in force, experts say, the policy was having undesirable side effects: It upended traditional structures for supporting older adults and led to a widening imbalance in the number of men and women, one that could sow social unrest."

China Will Feel One-Child Policy’s Effects for Decades, Experts Say

In any event, I am happy to be a woman, a feminist, a humanist, and an atheist. A woman no longer expects to be dependent all her life, can expect to be in a partnership with another and can define herself as having a mind of her own, of being capable of taking part in the election of government and of even being able to run for office. We live in exciting, challenging times. We women and men can work as team members creating better lives for ourselves and for us all.

Welcome,  Margaret! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that’s on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Writing to Congress is a group to share ideas so it's easy to write or call legislators.

After you’ve searched for topics of interest in “Groups” above and in the “Forums”, don’t forget to look at Latest Activity, found along the right margin of the page .
