I’m a bigger asian slut than you.

I didn’t become a feminist blogger to spread my message, folks, I became a feminist blogger so I could change google forever.

A friend of mine found out over the weekend (really, none of us want to know how or why) that if you do a google image search for “asian sluts” guess who’s face pops up in the second row of search results? Yours truly. And better yet, I’m wearing a t-shirt that says, “I am not your fetish.” The best part? Google is indexing this picture under “asian sluts” because the image is related to a presentation I did at SXSW on the objectification of asian women on the internet. At least that’s the best and most acceptable (to myself) answer I can come up with.

I win at the internet. It’s NSFW, but you can see for yourself. And naturally, my new tagline for life is now, “fighting patriarchy, one sexist google search at a time.”

After the game, one male viewer, David Hickey, wrote a letter to the editor asking why it was aired when women’s soccer clearly doesn’t compare to the men’s game. “Women can’t play football,” he wrote. “They don’t even know the basic rules.” Here’s his full message:

Students stage walkout over Oklahoma high school’s treatment of three rape survivors

In an inspiring show of solidarity — and a depressing indictment of both their fellow students and their school’s administration — a group of students is staging a walkout at a Norman, Oklahoma high school this morning to protest the way the community has treated three girls who were raped by a classmate. ThinkProgress reports:

Student organizers are standing in solidarity with three rape victims who say they were assaulted by the same male student. Although school administrators did suspend the alleged assailant, activists are concerned about the fact that the teen girls have faced bullying and harassment from other students since coming forward with their stories.

After a video of one of the assaults was posted online and passed ...
