    My son, age four, was playing around with two plastic Disney princess dolls.  A friend’s daughter, age 5, wandered over and asked “Whose princesses are those?”  I nodded toward my son.  “They’re his.” “He likes princesses ?”  “Yup.” “He’s a boy.”  “Yes.” She couldn’t think of anything to say after that.  She just stared, and thought.  And thought. And a seed was planted.  Love it.  [...]

  • admin wrote a new blog post: Story Telling vs. Exploitation   4 years, 3 months ago · View

    So last week a friend of mine tweeted the following question: How do you tell the story of a marginalized people without exploitation? Being a sucker for philosophical discussion, I started to type my answer, and found myself backspacing and typing and backspacing again. I was stumped. (Especially with a 140 character limit…) Over the past week, the question [...]

  • admin wrote a new blog post: Some thoughts for the 4th   4 years, 3 months ago · View

    x-posted from my Facebook In which I make myself HUGELY unpopular… So as the 4th approaches, I have found myself contemplating these United States and what it is that we are meant to stand for. In the current state we find ourselves in in this country, I hesitate to call us “united.” In a country whose most [...]

    Hi folks. I figured that my original post will get buried, so rather than keep adding to the comments I will add new posts when I have updates. Mods, of course, please tell me if that is not ok. Here is the facebook page for my project attempting to end gratuitious sexism in Pixar movies. Updates: a) We have 46 [...]

  • admin wrote a new blog post: Feminist songs?   4 years, 3 months ago · View

    "Lady Marmalade" has been one of my favorite songs for awhile, and I find myself listening to it very often. I do have feminist friends that don’t approve of the theme, though, but they don’t approve of prostitution or the porn industry in general. What do you think of that song, and can you recommend any feminist [...]

    (Warning: I do spoil a small part of Toy Story 3 here. If you haven’t seen the movie, you may want to wait to read this.) So I went to see Toy Story 3 last weekend, and it’s a fun, warm, funny movie – with several grievously sexist moments. And you know what? I’ve had enough. SO. I [...]

    Today is my birthday. I’m 32 years old. I’m not 32 years young. I’m not *whisper*32*whisper* I’m not 29 with 3 years’ experience. I’m not 29…again! Tee-hee. I’m not having an coyly unspecified birthday. I’m posting my real age on my social networking profiles, and telling it to anyone who asks. At normal speaking volume. [...]

  • admin wrote a new blog post: No One Showed…   4 years, 4 months ago · View

    Warning: I’m going to be very vague, as to not call out any specific organizations. Also, the title of this blog is a huge spoiler alert about the topic, so my apologies for that in advance. :) As I have written before, I work at a girl-serving feminist oriented nonprofit organization. This week, another local organization, [...]

    Thursday, May 13th is National Bike to Work Day and I encourage everyone to celebrate it! Bicycling has so much potential as a rewarding form of transportation. Just today, I pulled up alongside a fellow bicyclist (a rare sight in the area I was in) and she smiled and said, “a nice way to get [...]

  • admin wrote a new blog post: Yeah, but I’m not one of those crazy feminists   4 years, 5 months ago · View

    Okay, I want to ask you what people think of feminism and feminists in general. I just got off the phone with an old friend of mine and I was surprised of this young woman’s reaction. We were talking about life in general and she tells me about this project on feminist after the WWII. She seems [...]

    April is Cesarean Awareness Month , sponsored by the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN). Founded in 1982 by Esther Booth Zorn when the cesarean rate was in the range of 16-20%, ICAN’s mission is to “improve maternal-child health by preventing unnecessary cesareans through education, providing support for cesarean recovery, and promoting Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)”—all the more relevant [...]

  • admin wrote a new blog post: Good Effort: How to Tame Your Dragon   4 years, 6 months ago · View

    Cross posted from my blog. So I recently wrote about how Disney has had some feminist scores in the genre of children’s films with Alice in Wonderland and The Princess and the Frog (at my blog). I would now like to add Dreamwork’s How to Train Your Dragon to the steadily developing short list of feminist-ish [...]
