  • Nancy Lynne Kanter wrote a new blog post: SLUT: See Limbaugh, Unevolved Troglodyte   2 years, 6 months ago · View

    ThumbnailRush Limbaugh has been all over the news since his misogynistic rant about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student who testified before Democratic members of Congress about birth control coverage being a necessary part of women’s health. His rant went on for over three days, during which he called her a “slut” and a “prostitute,” along [...]

    ThumbnailUnlike most commercials, those that air during the Super Bowl are ones that people actually want to watch. These $3.5-million-per-30-second-time-slots can be opportunities for companies to be clever, maybe even inspiring … but instead, many insist on falling back on lazy and uninspired sexist clichés. This is so expected in fact, that MissRepresentation.org, a campaign named after the [...]

    ThumbnailA significant component of being confident in our own skin is honoring and respecting our bodies. It’s in recognizing that our bodies are sacred — that they belong to no one but ourselves. That they’re private property, and no one has the right to trespass. That no one has the right to touch them without our permission [...]

    Thumbnail The other day, my friend shared this image on my Facebook wall. I’m sure she had good intentions, as did the creator. At first glance, it seems like a girl-power-feel-good-kind-of-message that challenges the pressure to be thin, similar to the “real women have curves” mantra made popular by the movie of the same name. It seems [...]

    A) “I’d like to add to this that I’ve encountered more than one former teenage boy with this story, not to be all “what about teh menz”, but just to be factual and in remembrance that trafficking can be painful to whomever it may ensconce.” — Yes, I completely agree. Trafficking can happen to both [...]

    ThumbnailIn pop culture, a whore is demonized — she’s a woman who sells her body for money, a prostitute. She’s promiscuous and immoral. She’s unclean — she’s a dirty whore, a filthy whore. She’s damaged goods and the opposite of virgin. It’s a bad thing to “whore yourself out” or to be anyone’s bitch. A Google [...]
