Hey! I was thrilled to see this group. I hope it takes off. If nothing else, at least we've found each other, huh?Anyway, my name is Kim. I'm the 25-year-old mom of 2: a 14-yr-old daughter and a 6-yr-old son. Sophie is a freshman in high school and a "gifted" student. She's a complete tomboy (this is the only picture I have of her with her hair done--and she hates it) and into the punk scene, just like mom & dad. Valor is an incredibly intelligent boy with autism. I've been married for 15 years to an incredible guy. He's the kind of supportive, pro-female man who I thought could never actually exist. I'm truly blessed in that sense.Rigth now, I'm primarily a stay-at-home mom. I also go to school, but taking care of Valor requires a lot of time, so going to school and working outside the home just isn't possible. So, yes, a feminist housewife, indeed.Other than my family, though, politics are my main passion--specifically, leftist politics. Feminism has been the motivating force in my life since I was a teenager. I was raised very conservatively in an old Mormon family. Needless to say, I rebelled against that.Besides that, my interests are primarily punk/hardcore music, "cult" TV shows with strong women and reading. Most of my library consists of feminist writers--everyone from Mary Wollstonecraft and Emma Goldman to Susan Faludi and Mary Daly. Sophia Valor
