 “Nag, nag, nag, that’s all she does.” This statement is a resounding quote made distinctly by men about women. The verb is even definitively used as a noun to describe a complaining woman. When I see couples in my office, the woman typically comes in with a list of valid ways that the man is not showing up in the relationship. When I ask the man what he would like to change in the…

My cartoon, NO VAGINAS ALLOWED, is featured today on ElectWomen.com.  

I painted it to express my dismay when I learned that two Michigan legislators (female) were banned from speaking when they dared to say the word "vagina" as they were debating a bill on abortion. Please read the article and Speak Out!  

Do you think 'vagina' is a dirty word? …

When Bald Beats Hair Loss

kiki-and-stella.jpg For the second time since first losing my hair over a decade ago, I have hair.  Not a lot of hair, not long hair, not normally textured hair, but hair.  What I mean is that the total area of my head with hair growth is greater than the total area without hair.  I’m still losing hair, not all over all-at-once, but in roving bald spots.  So I have to be creative, moving…

The Beauty Behind the Bald Barbie Movement

bald-barbie.jpg I’ve been a fan of the Bald Barbie idea since I first heard about it.  I followed the debate that grew out of it and initially kept my voice of support to myself as I understand the voices of support and dissent.  Prior to knowing much of anything about the movement, I assumed the person behind Bald Barbie was…

Wanted: Doctor Who Gets My Response to Hair Loss

The Hardest Part of Hair Loss

survey-question.jpg As an Alopecian, the hardest part of hair loss for me is that I am assumed to be sick, or more specifically, to have cancer.  Not only don’t I have cancer, but beyond my immune system’s assault on my hair follicles, I am absolutely healthy.  Bummer?  Yes, but life goes on and I choose to move on with it.

A couple of years ago, I…

Blinded by Hair Loss Help Sites

blinders.jpg If I told you there was an online “hair loss support” site dedicated to supporting those of us (men, women, and children) with hair loss, maybe you’d think, “That’s great!”

If I told you that among the topics covered there was “What Your Hairstyle Says About You,” and that under that topic, we are told exactly which hairstyles we need to don in order to communicate that we…
