Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet


There is so much point-missing in this condescending and disrespectful response to Sesali’s post yesterday. Not sure where Sesali dismissed the entire second wave, or advocated an apolitical “choose your choice” feminism, but hey, reading comprehension can be hard. Suffice to say: If this bullshit is your reaction to a black feminist offering a thoughtful personal reflection on the need for intersectionality and a loving take on a movement that has often excluded women like her, you have clearly skipped some required reading of your own. There may not be one right way to be a feminist, but, as Sesali wrote, “there are thousands of ways to do it wrong.” Thank you for providing such a shining example of one of them. Please sit down.

Indiana legislator argues that allowing college students to carry concealed weapons will protect women from sexual assault. Uh, yeah, that probably won’t work.

“Feminism is more than a headcount.”

The new rule preventing families from being separated for months due to our draconian immigration policies won’t help same-sex couples.

Happy birthday to the amazing Ann Friedman. We miss you, lady!

    I don’t understand why the “zomg-you-all-suck” paragraph was included when only one person made any critique of Ms. Bowen.
