First off, I'm a woman. Let's just get that straight. I don't know why it's so improbable that a woman would be a chauvinist when we have dogs and cats waxing eloquent on politics and culture on the site. I was a liberal bliss-ninny well into my thirties until certain events (having two daughters (they're chauvinists too!) and 9/11/2001) changed my mind about nearly everything. Now it's faith, family, and country for me -- in that order. God Bless America!
