What We Missed


Of course fucking Sarah Palin is getting crazy media attention for addressing Boehner’s tears and double standards for women that feminist bloggers have already covered.

More International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers coverage from RH Reality Check (and the Research for Sex Work) on stigma and violence against transgender sex workers.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office has announced they won’t prosecute the late Lizzy Seeburg’s sexual assault case at Notre Dame.

On a lighter note, this picture is sort of amazing.

    Where is the ‘like’ option for comments? That was one of my favorite features, and now it seems gone.

    Anyway, I can’t read stories like that of Lizzy Seeburg. I try to but it upsets me too much. I got halfway through it and just couldn’t read it any more, skipped to the end. Yeah sure, it galvanizes us to speak about rape culture. Yeah sure, we backslap and exchange congratulations about how aware we are and now righteous we are. It’s not going to change the abhorrent low conviction rate for rapes. It’s not going to bring this girl justice. She is dead. I’m sorry, I wish had something more positive to offer. I wonder what this guy feels, if he feels anything, what he’s doing to address the accusations.

    This isn’t the first time that the USian media has ‘discovered’ an issue after Palin starts talking about it.

    I don’t know if you noticed, but there was no sexism in the coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. According to the media, sexism in the coverage didn’t become an issue until Sarah Palin ran for VP.
