Kelly Okamura has a birthday and is gifted a dog tag – that says on the back, 'well behaved women rarely make history'. She promptly dons it, and takes on the vexing social etiquette of zipping up with smug silent pity when a stranger’s zipper’s undone.
With her rebel trademark undyed hair she stands on the side of Aldous Huxley who said, 'Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.'
In this episode, she explores conscious action based on long held social protocol, the Millennial 5 minute rule, and Indigenous wisdom. And, because of all that birthday cake, by counting calories.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
