Are You Domestic?

The first party I ever went to in Seattle ended up having "Are you domestic?" as its catchphrase once one of the men queried the women in such fashion. "Are you domestic?" meant "do you cook/clean/act like a housewife?" And while it's becoming more and more common to expect women to remain outside of the home, we're all still domestic in one sense or another, a subject that Julie Blackmon examines in her surreal photography.

Michele told me we have some things in common and until I reached the end of the post I was thinking: doppelganger! (I don't know how to spell that word, but apparently neither does the spellcheck.) Robin
