Feministing’s Community site offers a platform for a variety of feminist activists and organizations to write their own blog posts, rants, reflections, poems, you-name-it. The Community site is open to anyone who would like to submit a post. However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site. Be sure to check out our comments/Community policy on the FAQ page before submitting your first post. Additionally, posts that contain no feminist lens or analysis, or that are “spammy” in nature, will probably not be accepted.

To get started, click “sign up” below. You’ll be asked to create an account on the site and provide a very brief (one sentence) description of your first post. Once your account is set up, you’ll be able to edit your profile to add a bio and links to your social media sites. In order to have an avatar photo, you’ll need a Gravatar account. If you don’t have one already, create one using the same email account associated with your Feministing account, and then upload a photo of yourself.

Becoming a College Rape Statistic

It was the first time I’d ever used a fake ID, the first time anyone had ever bought me a drink, the first time I’d ever worn too little clothes on a freezing December night because hours of dancing didn’t need a winter coat. I was celebrating the end of an intensely controlling and jealous relationship: new friends, new excitement.

Tinder Tales from a Feminist

I did it. I downloaded Tinder and I asked every guy in a twenty-mile radius if he considered himself a feminist.

It’s almost like I enjoy hitting myself on the head with a hammer.

Masters of Sex Just Set Itself Back Another Few Decades

For the first ten minutes of Sunday’s episode of Masters of Sex, it looked as if the unthinkable was about to happen: a character was going to have an abortion because it was the right choice for her.
