  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Feministing is 10 years old!   3 months, 1 week ago · View

    Congrats everyone! I was introduced to Feministing a little over four years ago by a friend who would later become my boyfriend. It would be a rock to hold to in a tumultuous storm when I went through my breakup with an emotionally abusive ex. Feministing was there to teach me about rape culture and [...]

    Oh, sweet! We can all go home now, guys.

    You know, Zerlina’s name always made me think of Don Giovanni! I thought it was just a coincidence. Happy Birthday, Z – you’re the feminist I’d want to bring to my deserted island. :)

    I really appreciate these necessary pieces on sex workers’ rights at Feministing. Thanks to our Resident Hooker for the work you do on this site – your pieces say things that need to be said.

    Congrats, ladies!

    Reporting in from Washington, DC – I have indeed seen Plan B on the shelves here. I did a little dance when I first saw it.

    Seriously?? This is a thing that happens? -.-

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Guest post: An open letter to desperate men on social media   12 months ago · View

    I was totally on board with this article until I got down to the FetLife comment. I feel like I need to say, just because someone is into a weird kink doesn’t mark them as a creeper. What makes them creepy is when they insist on throwing that kink into your face without solicitation or [...]

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Can you figure out what this police x-ray captured?   12 months ago · View

    You have a small typo in the last paragraph discussing the breakdown of people’s various backgrounds. You say there was a total of 78 women and 16 men in the trailer, but proceed to outline 78 men and 16 women. Just a heads up. Trafficking is a crime that is ignored all too much these [...]

  • Couldn’t this idiotic mentality be applied to ANY situation when voters get active? -.- “Oh, listen, voters are opposed to what we’re doing, that must mean we’re doing the right thing.” I hate my governor. He makes me embarrassed to be a Texan.

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Victim blaming at its worst: She’d been “making eyes at me”   1 year, 1 month ago · View

    The pathetic thing is that that perpetrator knows good and well what he was doing. If he actually thought a girl was “making eyes at him” – giving him the so-called come-hither look, he wouldn’t have bothered to have a pal guard the door.

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet   1 year, 1 month ago · View

    That FemFrequency post honestly made me want to cry. I was furious at the constant accusations of her “entitlement,” as if wanting a little representation in video games is somehow more entitled than people with privilege assuming that all protagonists need to be male. Scoffing that they make all protagonists male because they want their [...]

  • Hold on – back up – This was a thing that happened? “She was an incredible surrogate and supporter during the 2008 election cycle, but when she did this conservatives lamented the motion as a “terrorist fist jab.”” I mean…what? That doesn’t even make any sense. Have conservatives and pundits never heard of fist-bumping? Do [...]

    This is a beautifully written and compelling article. I really appreciate having the chance to hear your story, even if I don’t know who you are. Thank you for posting this for us.

  • I’m sure this is the initial response of many people. A story like this can evoke a very visceral response. My first reaction was shock and to press a hand over my own chest. And then the more I read, the more admiration I felt for her making this decision. It had to be incredibly [...]

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Pedagogy of the Undressed: A how-to guide for feminist fisting   1 year, 3 months ago · View

    Fisting terrifies me – I am very small! So this may not have been my favorite choice for a first topic for this new column. However, other than THAT little minor thing – words cannot explain how super psyched I am for more of these! Kink and consent and sexual education get me so hot. [...]

  • This is beautiful! I really applaud her for being confident enough to be herself without feeling like she needed to make some kind of announcement for the public’s sake. She sounds like a great role model.

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Not cool, bro   1 year, 3 months ago · View

    I have lots of emotions tumbling around in my head in response to this, but I don’t know how to articulate them. Thank you so much for this post. It means a lot to me. I am with you.

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Eradicating biphobia within gay communities and gay media   1 year, 3 months ago · View

    This is exactly how I felt as well. As a bi woman who has worked through a lot of complicated relationships with people who doubt my sexuality, this claim that bi men have it harder because it’s accepted for women’s sexuality to be fluid made me feel as if I was totally excluded from this [...]

  • Aislin Kageno commented on the blog post Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet   1 year, 3 months ago · View

    The Donglegate article is really well done and has a lot to offer – though I didn’t really appreciate how it seems to focus on how feminism and MRA are polar opposites. The thing that really gets under my skin about MRAs is that really, they sort of want a lot of the same things [...]
