I've been reading Under the Banner of Heaven. I was supposed to finish weeks ago for book club, but didn't get to it. Now I'm watching season 3 of Big Love and all I can think about is plural marriage. It is permeating my conscious thoughts. I know there are people who are far less feminist than me and that's ok, because someday I'll convert them. But these principals? Plural marriage, subservience, obedience, the racism...I feel scared these folks will get to my baby and make him think such things are ok. Maybe I'm not scared of that. Maybe I'm more scared because I don't see how I can help the women who are stuck in places where people tell them such things are not only ok, but necessary.
I need to stop reading heavy books until I give birth, I think. Also to stop watching shows this distressing.
