    When I think about mothers I think about all of the ways which they sacrifice for the good of the ones they care for.  And I think about this example of my own mom, which is not so terribly remarkable or elegant, but for me, a quite salient demonstration of her mothering.  When she cooked chicken dinner for her husband and two kids--dinner which she shopped for, prepared and cleaned up after, a daily chore she administered in addition to cleaning and keeping us all in fresh clothes, and a hundred other things she took care of, all of which followed her 40 hour a week job; the one…

Not only was she white — like all but nine of the 94 winners beforeher — she also fit snugly into a narrowly defined standard of Westernfemale attractiveness: early 20s, long flowing hair and a thin, painstakingly tanned physique that would not seem out of place in a Victoria’s Secret catalog. Critics have long bemoaned this problematic ideal, especially in regards to influential pageants like this one. And they make a strong point: Why…

    By Peter d’Errico Civilization, in a standard dictionary, is “the stage of human social development and organization that is considered most advanced.” The dictionary equates “advanced” with “the comfort and convenience of modern life.” A thesaurus adds “progress, enlightenment, culture, refinement, sophistication.” Maybe most of us find these definitions acceptable, despite the fact we know there are different civilizations, with different ideas of enlightenment, culture, refinement, etc. The way of life of a particular area—Western…
