This blog in written by Christa and Robin. We live in West Philadelphia, and like ice cream, asparagus, cats, deconstructing gender and making art, among other things.

We started blogging at the SDS Womyn’s Caucus blog when we were members of Students for a Democratic Society. Eventually we moved on to new projects and life phases and decided to start our own blog.

Bursting at the Seams is our place to riff and rant on things that are on our minds. We love examining how power, privilege and oppression play out in different situations.

We welcome respectful comments and encourage discourse on the blog. Feel free to e-mail us at seamsblog (at)
