    PA is poised to vote on a mandatory ultrasound bill even more restrictive than Virginia’s.

    The problem with many of these characters is that they exist purely to bring light and sunshine to depressed men’s hearts. They’re fantasies viewed through the male gaze. They exist purely to lend support to the hero. They don’t have their own motivations or dreams. But the quirky dream girl image is cast in a [...]

    HAHA thank you for this! The Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope really annoys me, because she’s just another shallow dream girl for wannabe hipster dudes. The childishness of the characters reminds me of the ways girls/women are sometimes portrayed in Japanese anime. Just no. Please. One reason I stopped being interested in a guy was [...]

  • artofme commented on the blog post Self-Awareness is the Cure for Female Rivalry   3 years, 10 months ago · View

    I read and enjoyed The Beauty Myth , but Wolf engages in nothing more than gender essentialism in this article. Yes, those kinds of rivalries do happen between women, but not always, and my guess is that socialization is to blame. We rarely see this dark side of women’s rivalry portrayed in the media. I admit my knowledge [...]

    I like this post. Very thought-provoking, though I admit I’m not a watcher of the show. Can a strong commitment to feminism and a deep love of fashion happily co-exist? I think they can! I think feminism is about freedom of choice, which means choosing to wear whatever you want to wear, whether that’s a flannel [...]

    News like this makes me so, so sad and I just don’t know what to do about it. I hate very few things more than I hate bullying and administrative ignorance of it. There is something wrong in our culture when this is happening. I’m currently in training to become a teacher, and I know [...]

    Sarah Palin is forgetting the history of the word feminism. When you look at what Sarah Palin believes in, and then what every generation of feminism has believed in, they are very different. She’s just showing once again how ignorant she is.

  • artofme commented on the blog post Johnny Weir on the difference between gender and sexuality   4 years ago · View

    We don’t know how he meant the quote. He isn’t the one who titled the article, and who knows where that sentence might have occurred during the interview? Perhaps he was responding to any thoughts that he might be transsexual because of how he dresses, along with assumptions about his sexuality. I think it’s wrong [...]

    How could anyone possibly think it’s a good idea to make an ad like this? Sexism is often not so overt in our culture: it’s the fact that no one thinks twice at using a woman’s body to sell a product or as a prop that shows how sexism still pervades our society. The advertising [...]

    Favorite all-female band: Sleater-Kinney. Awesome feminist rock music. I would love to hear of more female drummers, guitarists, and bassists. I think i-revolt above posted a pretty thorough list. I also happen to love Azure Ray and Vienna Teng.
