    this is a hard one for sure. i do think that abortion *might* be murder, and is obviously a sad/not ideal option. and still, given that we have the technology (and i’m glad we do) i absolutely think that every person has the right to decide what happens with their body. it is a tough, [...]

    “is that person a feminist?” indeed, an age-old question that to be honest, I’m kind of sick of hearing. Does *she* identify as a feminist? It’s possible that since she gave that interview (that you cited) she’s changed her mind, or her politics, or at the very least her label. It’s possible that now she [...]

    “Is there a moral difference between drag (particularly for doing a caricature of “the other gender”) and face (particularly for doing a caricature of another race)? … I don’t think it’s appropriate to judge past motivations against current motivations for blackface any more than we do for drag.” I absolutely disagree with this. Everything is [...]

    Yeah, unsatisfying as it may feel, in the meantime, you just validate her choices, tell her how much you love and care about her, and if it seems to be taking a toll on her emotionally, or something, you can absolutely say– “it looks like this relationship is taking a lot out of you. That [...]

    Hey, I work in domestic violence. There are a LOT of kinds of abuse, and many of them don’t seem like abuse, so even if your sister WOULD tell you if she was being abused, she may not realize it. Examples of different kinds of abuse could be: pinching, hitting, pushing, getting up in your [...]

    wow, I totally disagree. I admit, there are times when I react the way that you’ve described, but those are notably times when I have to admit that my anger got the better of me and when I failed to engage someone in a constructive critical discussion. These things take time. If every time it [...]

    anything on MEF.com. Maybe start with tough guys, about masculinity, but there’s a lot of good stuff on there that you can watch “just for preview” online.

    yes but Scripps is neither big nor does it have a marching band (that I know of)… and though I enjoyed the classes I took at the 5Cs that had gender as a focus, Scripps (an all women’s school, mind you!!) has only ONE FULL TIME faculty member in the women’s studies department. And this [...]

  • beckeck wrote a new blog post: sexist ad?   5 years, 4 months ago · View

    Hey :) so I have been surfing around this sight for ages but this is my first post! and I’d like a little advice. There is a poster ad up around my school right now for a music concert titled "aural pleasure" and the picture was up red lipstick covered lips licking maraschino cherries (or lollypops?) that [...]
