After more than 60 years together, Jimmy Carter has announced himself at odds with the Southern Baptist Church. He called the decision "unavoidable" after church leaders prohibited women from being ordained and insisted women be "subservient to their husbands." Said Carter "At its most repugnant, the belief that women must be subjugated to the wishes of men excuses slavery, violence, forced prostitution, genital mutilation and national laws that omit rape as a crime.
I love this woman: Helen Mirren: I think every woman in our culture is a feminist. They may refuse to articulate it, but if you were to take any woman back 40 years and say "Is this a world you want to live in?" They would say "No".
"You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn't doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman's looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she's ugly, but everyone else thinks you're an idiot."
