danaseilhan: This is going to sound sad, but...

Upon hearing what has happened to Dr. Elgin, I'm suddenly not wanting to let go of the community. No, I don't know why. Yes, I know it's weird. >_< But I'm also getting more interested in feminist issues than I have in a long time, especially now with the mess going on in politics. This language is a little piece of the movement's history, most of the movement's not even aware of it, and I'm feeling a bit protective.

Anyway. There's your anti-flounce for the day, I suppose. :)

I am so glad that the Community is to stay.

I seem to be unable to learn a second language, so I am out of place here and couldn't offer to help - but when I first encountered Láadan, in 1986, I thought that it would be a wonderful language to be used for therapy. (There is a sampler of the vocabulary in the British addition and some of the words and concepts were very well chosen.)
