Around here, people use similar critters as sensors; to know if someone is prowling nearby. These are seen a lot in apartment complexes. Have seen frogs that ribbit when you walk by and heard an owl that hoots when you are near. It's actually unobtrusive and looks decorative, but the sound alerts you to someone being nearby.
Ok. Lol I only watched with half an eye ..thought you made them chirp lol...ok I see it might work

We have outside lights that only go on when you come near the house ..

It woukd be hard to have that parakeet in my house if it was,sensor..have 2cats and a dog..all rescues...

If we don't agree we are anti feminist ..And that is just NOT true for many of us..especially us women who grew up in the sixties!!!
I have to agree to disagree on the "abortion has become its banner" statement.

Personally, I think all feminists, myself included, simply want to see the legal right of a woman to CHOOSE abortion, should she not want to stay pregnant and give birth, to remain in place. What I strongly object to is the clear agenda of the anti-choice movement to take that right away from women by severely restricting access to abortion, and, regrettably, some forms of reliable contraception. That's what is going on in several states, including Texas, North Carolina, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Virginia, and Mississippi.

The war on women rages on, no matter how many times conservatives deny there is one.

Outlawing women killing their babies in their wombs is punishment?
That's a socipathic-like statement.
What's truly sociopathic is FORCING women to continue pregnancies they never wanted to begin with, and most likely used reliable contraception to try and PREVENT.

And pregnancy IS a punishment, to a woman who never wanted pregnancy or children in the first place.

Have to age e to disagree todisagreagain

Nit all of us who fought for women's equality were so called bra burners in the sixties.

We fought for equal pay..for better jobs ...fir acknowledgement in our respective fields of endeavor endeavoring getting as much education as non professionals could..started classes of our own ..git recognized...certified..made organizations that coukd get DEVs on a very local level..to better ourselves..And get respect from employers.

We welcomed the pill ..And other family planning tools.
And we raised our daughters to get a better lot in life than we had .

To bevokecactusl professionals who hired people who were now certified in their professions.

But once ROE became law all the politics went to abortion ..to the point where the freedom to kill one's own child is more important than guaranteeing education..

And it has split this country in two
Killing the offspring if a mother is NOT what a lot of us ..those women in non college jobs ..who fought for recognition and paid for our own knowledge FOUGHT FOR..IT was respect ..not to have the women's issues hijacked to abortion clinics...huge money maker

Birth control by your own statistics is NOT EVEN practiced in half the women who have abortion ..probably more.

This lack of responsibility leeches into all aspects of a woman's life.

We learned to take our responsibilities to ourselves seriously..

Limiting family was one facet..But that limit did NIT COME at the expense of another life.

It is a horrid message to pass on tonight daughters.

It's ok ..you can do what you want ..YOU ARE A WOMAN ..little matter the offspring she kills ..It's only a clump of cells.
And that message has made it alright ..to the tune of 800thousand abortions a year.

I keep hoping someday it Wiesbaden on these women..hey if mom hadn't found ME convenient..I would not be here..But so far it hasn't

The NEW WOMEN'S,MOVEMENT has done its job well..Receding the very concept of life ..aided by politicians wanting that LIB vote..

I have resigned ..turned in my card ...Nit for any movement that throws away life so easily ..for a practice that should be so rare by now ..with all the methods we have to prevent the pregnancy in the first place .

I disagree. Reproductive rights are part of the fight for equality, not it's "banner". You just hear about it more, because it's controversial.

As for the 60s, the methods may have been different between groups (the shock value of bra burning, for example), but the goal was the same...equality.

As my grandmother used to say, if we were all the same, they'd only make green paint.

Why do you have a stripper name? Are you a stripper for Jesus? Do you touch yourself in your privates and pretend it's the hand of Jesus? When you strip do you imagine Jesus is out in the audience? Do you give your priest private lap dances?

Yup ..what a waste..burning good clothing .Lol

But as I say the abortion movement has eclipsed everything else. To the point most people cannot talk without agitation ..Or in some cases,screaming protests

And politicians on both sides ..use this ..instead of trying to make a better country.

Where has the outrage over the debt gone...it is humongous compared to what Bush had ...

And our grand kids will pay dearly .

Oh well No one listens to people my age ..But I still vite..useless as it is in my county.

If no Roe...We would have stayed focused ..had mire responsibility fir
Ourselves using either smarter sex ..No sex without a life partner...OR
CONTRACEPTION. or call three.

Life has become expendable. Because life in the womb is...And we did NOT Used to feel that way.

I know we cannot undo it sadly ..But I wish we had s rated focused on

Family planning ..not killing preview babies...

It has not eclipsed everything else. The fight for equality continues. Again, you just hear about it more, and that is the fault of those who are working against equal rights in that area.

And no, a woman cannot have equality until she is free to make all of her own medical decisions. Just like she cannot have equality until she makes as much money for doing the same job as a man. Just like she cannot have equality until she has equal access to education as a man. It's all part and parcel of the fight for equality. It's all important.

Rose, now you are being naïve. Life has always been expendable to humanity. Always. How can you look at the history of war and slavery and pretend it hasn't? Every soldier is/has been considered expendable to the gov'ts that send them to war. RvW added nothing to that.

Abortion has always been around, and used. It was mostly herbal, aside from the objects inserted into the vagina. What has changed throughout history is the fact that it went from being considered no one's business what a woman did with her own pregnancy, to others thinking they had the right to tell her what she can and cannot do. RvW merely put the decision, as much as possible, back into the hands it belongs in, the woman who is the one gestating, and facing possible risks to life and health.

For what it's worth, and I may be wrong, perhaps the big difference between the feminist fight for rights in the 60's and today is that back then, reproductive issues were not at the forefront simply because it was felt that those were "womens issues" and the government was not going buck wild like they are today over it. In the last few years, there have been so many attempted bills at regulating abortion, because they know they can't outright ban it, and some politicians are trying to include contraception as well, which is why we see more women stepping up to defend those issues today as opposed to the 60's.

But Bitner.

Equality at the expense of 50 million newborn lives ???

What are we.

The other things,you cited are a horrid legacy.

But supposedly ..well we used to say..if women ran things THERE EOUKD BE NO KILLING. WARS. ETC

WHAT have we women become!!! AT A WHAT PRICE to our own offspring ..

When with using responsible tools that number coukd have been so much lower.

We are no better than the warring men we used to put down.

Death for different goals ..

And so unnecessary

It's sad

Not what I thought we women should fight for.
