SORT BY Relevancy
GENDER STUDIES, WOMEN’S STUDIES—DO WE REALLY STILL NEED THEM?
You remember women’s studies – started around the time young women were supposedly burning their bras. If you’re a supporter of the programs, they are a place to learn the history of feminism, equality, and women’s accomplishments in the world. If you aren’t a supporter, those programs are for women with short hair and Birkenstocks to learn how to resent men. Fortunately, both those stereotypes are off the mark. So – what is women’s studies and how are such programs relevant today?
We’ll get those answers and more as Yi-Chun Tricia Lin, Director and Professor of the Women’s Studies Program at Southern Connecticut State University, joins us for Saturday’s show. Growing up in Taiwan, Tricia was expected to follow a life as previous generations of women had- obedient and submissive to patriarchy. That didn’t work for her, and instead she went to graduate school and became a teacher focusing on social justice issues, including gender, racial, and socio-economic issues. She also is very active in leadership of a number of academic and political organizations, including Veteran Feminists of America, New Haven League of Women Voters, and the National Women’s Studies Association. Tricia also contributed to several publications including a special issue on transnational Indigenous feminism with Lectora (University of Barcelona), forthcoming in 2016. If anyone knows the current status of women’s studies, it is Tricia.
For this show, I plan to talk about what is trending on Facebook and Twitter. If time, I will take in call, (if any) to talk about anything that's on their minds. I will also be talking about what has been happening with me and tell you more about me and this station. I just became a Trekkie, so I might be throwing in a bit of Star Trek reference. Forgive me if I can't spell anything in here correctly, this section of inputing alpha-numaric sentances does not have auto-correct.
So here is what will happen in order....
1: I will talk about me and about the station.
2: I will talk about trending topics on Facebook and Twitter (at the current time).
3: I will take in calls if anyone is listening.
4: I will give a thought of the evening
I hope you will enjoy listening to Gender Chat on Blog Talk Radio, and I hope to hear your views and ideas. Details are on the station/channel/profile page.

the revolution of the mind continues...
Amazon recently declared that children's toys will no longer be separated by gender. No more trucks for boys or dolls for girls... Everyone plays with everything.
Which led us into a debate...
Are gender role assignments crucial to mental health and stability... Especially in communities of color?
Are gender "roles" even fair? Shouldn't everyone assume whatever "role" they must to ensure life liberty and happiness? Or are these "roles" the very glue that binds our society?

in The Bible
This is a continuing bible study within the word of God. This study is on the word believe. The Lord Jesus gave me that word to do a study on.
This is a Holy Spirit led study, so if the Lord takes it in another direction in the middle of the study, that is where I want to go, following His lead. That is when He opens up understanding of his word to us, through us being obedient to his lead.
These studies were interrupted about seven months ago because of an emergency situation that put me in the hospital, and nursing home for about one week short of three months. The doctor at one point, from what I have been told by family members, said that he did not expect me to live. So praise the Lord! One more time the word of God kept me alive!! Been back to the hospital for tests and surgery since then, so still in the recovery stage.
Started home bible study back up last week and it went quite well, so wanted to try and do the on line study too. Looks like Blog talk has changed quite a bit, so Lord willing I will be able to get back on.

"Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for the law provides the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God which is through faith in Jesus Christ to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference." (Romans 8:19-22)
In these inspired words, The Apostle Paul illustrates clearly that The Law exists ONLY for the segment of humanity of which he later explains in this book as being those who have NOT come to Him By Faith. He then emphasizes that true righteousness HAS been "revealed" to mankind that is "apart from" yet is "witnessed by" The Law. A righteousness that is by Faith in Christ Alone. In spite of this clear evidence, there are still many Modern Day Legalists who during this time of the 'Famine of The HEARING of The Word" continue to errantly declare otherwise. That Christ only caused the cessation of the laws of animal sacrifice" in spite of the reality that scripture clearly teaches otherwise. Join me on this leg of my series "From The Schoolmaster to The Savior" as we look to the Infallible Word of God to expose the errant musings of men who "desire to be teachers of The Law, but have NO understanding of what they're proclaiming or of the things they claim to be affirming."
