    1. You are very welcome. An issue that needs a lot of attention. Just heard in the news yesterday (or day before) that no law in any of the 50 states against a husband raping his wife. REALLY??? Did you know that the first conviction of wife abuse was actually won on the grounds of animal cruelty? (Back in the 50’s and before, wives were considered no higher than animals; they were property. You can find statistics on this website: http://www.icadvinc.org/what-is-domestic-violence/history-of-battered-womens-movement/
      Keep writing and encouraging, helping women. I’m not in favor of the feminist movement because I think they’ve carried things too far; however, I can appreciate the basis for which it got started.

      1. Oh yes, without a shadow of a doubt!
        That’s horrendous!
        ~My poem was based on my novel, “The Defeatist” and Jude & Joe are actually gay. I’ll have a look on that website.

  2. Forgot to answer your other questions. Yes, I am on FB and Twitter. I have two FB pages but the one that says Aleta Dye is my author site, although my friends and family post there too. FB messed up (or maybe it was my fault; maybe I didn’t know how to add an author page to my family/friend page), anyway, people use both. The Aleta Dye page is supposed to be the author page, also promoting other writers, authors, poets, and artists, within limits.
