• I think that flippant, holier-than-thou statement about so-called “radfems” and how they “started it” was what so turned me off to this whole post. Guess what? No one “started it” except the women and girls who have told their stories. The whole thing was so dismissive. Whether the majority of women and girls are trafficked, [...]

  • You know, I’m a fairly radical feminist and a former sex worker. Sorry, but the reasons 90% of the women were in that industry wasn’t for “fun”.

  • aznemesis wrote a new blog post: Obama, Larry Summers, & Feminism   5 years, 2 months ago · View

    In efforts to avoid thread hi-jacking, I thought I’d just create a post about this.  Recently, a comment I made about how I wouldn’t count on Obama to defend women’s rights led to an argument.  As I stated there, I did not vote for Obama.  I’m a registered independent in my state, so can’t vote in [...]
