dear iriXx et al
i'd take this off line . . . but . . . .
is this URL kind o what you meant when you wrote Feminazi ?
or this ? http://www.qis.net/~jimjr/one108.htm
think i'll stick to DIS Ability Theory which encompasses Humanism &
Feminism . . .
Human Rights - inclusion being full members o Society rather than
ostracism and exclusion . . .
and hey don't you like those cool ramps they're figuring out how to build
into th architecture / design . . .
STAIRS ARE PASSÉ
