Just heard that California’s Prop 73 did not pass.

I am very relieved.

Let’s just say it had something to do with a women’s right to privacy/right to choose.

If passed, it would have been a precursor to much much more.

In my early twenties, this was a key issue that got me involved in youth advocacy work.

    I heard Arnold got defeated all the way around. I feel no pity for him.

    As a “California Girl”, I’m still in touch with CA politics even after living here for 6 years. And I’m so glad that the proposition did not pass.

    The right to choose and the right to privacy are so crucial to women’s health and issues.

    I always thought I’d have daughters to pass on my feminist views to, but I don’t. My poor sons don’t stand a chance though and WILL be responsible and accontable. Well….that’s another rant.

        Our boys don’t stand a chance!

        My good friend here in town has two girls, but they’re too young for those discussions yet. And besides, they’d hear them from their own mom first. I’m kinda like the surrogate mom to them. I have nieces but they’re far away and still young yet as well.

          my neices are in Massachusetts. they are 5 and 14. my 14 yr. old wants me to talk to her mom about merely talking to her about boys, then letting her date. my sis would kill me.

          my son has dated the same girl for almost a year now.

  3. I am glad it didn’t either
