My daughter goes to a very liberal boarding school in Massachusetts. It is so liberal that their textbook for their required sex ed course is by Scarlateen. Today in history class the history teacher asked how many students were feminists. My daughter was the only one who raised her hand. She was shocked by that, and I am too. I'm also proud of her and feel complimented.
I'm probably not going to stay up to watch (via live blogging) Tony finish his marathon swim (26 miles in a pool!), but I am moved by his dedication.
