Transcript Page 2 BROADSIDE February 1974 BROADSIDE STAFF: Editor Tan Dilbeck Advertising Pat German Circulation Chris Feahr Contributors Janice Blue, Martha Failing, Ibis Gomez, Teanne Necaise, Toan Ritter, Mary Ross Rhyne NOW OFFICERS: President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Teanne Necaise 772-4843 Harla Kaplan 772-4987 Linda Bayer 644-4861 Toan Ritter 645-9378 Dear Reader: Watching Hazel Bracken make an ass out of herself on the front page of the Houston Post was quite a jolt. It's been many years since I escaped the public school system and I somehow naively hoped that things had improved. Here I am, using every effort to raise the consciousness of my contemporaries, while Hazel Bracken and otl of her ilk are raising yet another generation of overbearing men and timid women. I tell you, it gives me the stomach ache. Lest you underestimate the influence that this kind of attitude ultimately has on young girls, consider this: TASK FORCE COORDINATORS: Center Directors Child Care Education Employment FCC Fund Raising Marriage and Divorce Politics and Lobbying Rape Crisis Center Reproduction and its Control Speakers Bureau Women in the Arts Women in Poverty Sally Bedford 622-7250 Mary Tane White 523-3232 Tan Pierce 522-1278 Linda England 721-2831 Kay Whyburn 667-8556 Linda Bayer 644-4861 Tanice Blue 522-0020 Toan Ritter 645-9378 Eileen Martin 448-5167 Helen Cassidy 748-5369 Linda Cryer 748-6915 Nancy Kuykendall 664-4152 Muncy McKinney 944-5534 April Raines 627-2459 Peggy Hall 528-3424 I was sitting in Miss Thompson's sixth-grade class one day when she called me to the front of the room. "What do you mean sitting there like that? I can see EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT! Now go back and sit down like a lady." Horrified, almost sick with embarassment, I crept back to my seat. What did she mean? What did I have that was so terrible? hi all probability I had been sitting spraddle-] (as my grandmother would say). Therefore, must have been outraged by the sight of my poor little innocent eleven-year-old crotch , even though it was adequately covered by my white cotton panties. My mother would have died and gone to hell before she let me out of the house without underwear. That dreadful experience is seared on my brain for all time. And the attitude of that teacher is the natural outgrowth of pious platitudes about women being secondary and inferior. So, the back of my hand to you, Hazel Bracken. And to you, Molly Thompson, wherever you are, my crotch is doing quite well, no thanks to you.
