Good statement Kathryn. From the little I know, and what I've read in
the papers of feminist opposition to PK, it seems to me that while the
PK may be overly religious, which would set off the atheistic sirens of
any radical fem, for reasons having nothing to do with family, their
main arguments for opposing PK read to me like the same sort of
doublespeak we are seeing here in the "property is theft" thread.
