Prager Part II: More reasons why women should put out on demand

Dennis Prager’s thoughts on why women have no real right to deny men sex (excuse me, the “giving” of their bodies) couldn’t be summarized in just one column. No, Prager needed a sequel to his ode to marital rape.
Jesse takes apart the whole piece, so I won’t reinvent the wheel – but I will leave you with my favorite part:

Why would a loving, wise woman allow mood to determine whether or not she will give her husband one of the most important expressions of love she can show him? What else in life, of such significance, do we allow to be governed by mood?
What if your husband woke up one day and announced that ...

Reviews from the road: Charis Books, Atlanta GA

I visited Charis Books in Atlanta Georgia, at the suggestion of many of you readers. It’s located in the Little Five Points Neighborhood, which is a cute area with big old houses and windy tree-lined streets. The little downtown area has a Berkeley feel to it, with thrift stores and coffee shops. Charis Books has it’s own building, painted light purple in true 1970’s feminist fashion. Charis self-identifies as an independent feminist bookstore and you definitely get that sense from spending some time there.
Not surprisingly, I loved the store. I was immediately drawn to the displays in the front, with new books, including a section dedicated to new lesbian fiction. I knew I would like the place when ...

Ending Pink’s Reign

Shiny Shiny brings us the latest in feminized gear: a pink heart-shaped guitar for Guitar Hero. Okay, I get that some folks like the color, but can I just say I’m so incredibly sick of products being marketed towards women simply by slapping some pink on them?
I mean, there’s pink laptops, tools, websites, iPods, pocket knives – even cigarettes! The pink madness has to end. In fact, I think one of my new year’s resolutions will be to avoid all things pink (with the exception of cotton candy Jelly Bellys – I love those things).

Feminist New Year’s Resolutions

I have never been a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. When I was younger they always had to do with losing weight or to quit eating cookies or some such thing that I was told if I do would unlock the secret to the life I always wanted. As I have gotten older and more in touch with myself and my feminism, I realize that negative self talk or putting myself up to tasks that are based on insecurity and hold the ‘secret to everything I am missing’ is rarely successful and never makes me feel good. So I moved to focusing on being as healthy and positive as I can be. But this year, I am coming out ...
