This week I wrote about taking up space…
And my friend Maria explains, cancer is not sexy…
I’m incredibly busy this week and last, but I got a bit of writing in:
Me on women’s worth as being directly proportional to their fuckability factor to your average Joe:
And I review Valenti’s “Why Have Kids?” and Kinzel’s “Two Whole Cakes.”
This week I wrote about lady friendships and growing up…
A very sad and disturbing story of teen pregnancy in our sex negative world.
And being viewed as a person vessel instead of a person
This week I wrote a little bit about how one person turned Nicki Minaj’s Mitt Romney non-endorsement into a time to shame the singer’s body:
I also reviewed three of NBC’s new shows:
This week I wrote a little about the DNC and gay rights:
I also covered Lana Del Rey’s GQ photo shoot:
This week, I wrote a bit about Lady Gaga and disingenuous Ann Romney.
I also spent a moment speculating about “Fat Amy” in the Pitch Perfect movie trailer.
This week I wrote about
…the motivations behind narrowly defining rape: http://www.nerdyfeminist.com/2012/08/why-narrowly-define-rape-hint-rape.html
…when “thin is in” http://www.nerdyfeminist.com/2012/08/when-thin-is-in.html
…and the dumb dad stereotype http://www.nerdyfeminist.com/2012/08/dumb-dads.html
In addition to my usual blogging this week, I started a new project on Tumblr called: Sexism! As Seen on Facebook (www.facebooksexism.tumblr.com). If you want to learn more about it, you can here: http://www.nerdyfeminist.com/2012/08/announcing-sexism-as-seen-on-facebook.html Please follow it on Tumblr, submit, and share! I also wrote about: The wrong idea of equality… http://www.nerdyfeminist.com/2012/08/the-wrong-idea-of-equality.html Breaking Bad, power, [...]
I don’t think much of the criticism is focused on thinking it’s degrading to preform oral sex, it’s about how S.E. did NOT consent to this situation. This isn’t a picture of a woman partaking in a sexual activity. This is an image created without her knowledge, specifically designed to demean her. It’s not sex [...]
I totally agree w/ you, Zerlina. This is truly disgusting and highly offensive. But it’s really frustrating because S.E. is denying that we’re standing up for her. She’s ignoring us. For example, she said, “It seems that feminism has devolved into an institution that has picked losers and winners and has decided that some women [...]
aLynn commented on the blog post Ohio mom ousted as Boy Scout troop leader for being gay 2 years, 5 months ago · View
I completely agree and came here to make a commnent to that effect, but you’ve said it better than I could. This is directly why I don’t partake in Boy Scout fundraisers (where they try to sell me popcorn.) That organization does NOT reflect my values…I’d much rather give my money to the Girl Scouts, [...]
This week I wrote about:
3) Community’s comeback.
Hi Veronica, I totally agree w/ you and I’ve written a bit about the tendency to call thin women bitches here: http://www.nerdyfeminist.com/2011/06/skinny-bitch.html I stand w/ your assertion that you are a real woman and that fat women should quit shaming thin bodies, just as much as vice versa. However, where you lose me is in [...]
I wrote a follow up to my last piece about my girl hate issues w/ Zooey Deschanel and the whole MPDG thing:
I also wrote about the importance of being a bit selfish as women:
I definitely agree with your point about the sandwich, but as for the bodily functions thing, I just saw that as her getting hit with the food poisoning first…everyone else’s bodily functions went out of control after that as well.
