My Final Ballabuster Piece

On Friday, I published my final Ballabuster column for Jewcy. While I very much enjoyed writing it and exploring topics of Judaism and feminism, I'm looking to spread my wings a bit and start exploring some new sectors and ideas.

So here it is--a deeper exploration of "she lo asani isha" and the perils of feeling nostalgic for old, oppressive forms. Nostalgia, though natural, can be a negative force in the fight for social change.

Speaking of nostalgia--I just rescued several of my old stuffed animals from my mother's donation bags, pretending to take them as toys for my newly adopted dog. This type of nostalgia is fuzzy, cuddly, and harmless.
