Our bodies are the only true homes we will ever know

Bridgett just sent me a link to this awesome post over at Frogs and Ravens.
Power in our culture is the ability to exist in our bodies so comfortably that we can pretend that they do not matter. But they do. The lives of women - and of other people set apart and marked on the basis of their physical selves - are the strongest evidence for this. We should all be comfortable in our homes, and not because we can pretend that they don't exist. We should be comfortable in our bodies because they are ours and because they are valued and because we and they matter.
Read the whole thing. It's good.
