    This #Solidarityis forWhiteWomen thing is fascinating. Feminists of color don’t like it when people of color are treated like “special interest topics” by white feminists, huh? Yeah, I dig that, seeing I get treated like a special interest topic by feminists, both white and WoC, because I’m disabled and autistic. I and other disabled women [...]

    Really, Feministing? Why don’t you just tell the lesbian to go to the back of the bus while you’re at it. And yes–I DID JUST SAY THAT. Did you think that 2 days of people framing this is simply a white women being rude to a balck woman, while completely brushing the elitism and hetero [...]

    I understand your objections, but it might be more constructive to make an objection to such language in general here, and then follow the link provided in Maya’s text the original article and confront the original author about the problems with *her* language, rather than projecting this onto “feminists” everywhere. As a disabled/autistic feminist I [...]

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post A hip hop feminist questions the “male gaze”   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    Pretty insightful article, although I don’t agree that male gaze is primarily a product of capitalism. Rather I think it’s something that men have long done in our patriachal society in one way other another that objectifies women, disempowers them and diminishes their dignity and humanty. Capitalism has seized in it with gusto and it [...]

    CK Louis bro-tastically pandered to the comedy community over the Danial Tosh crap and told Jon Stewaet comedian and feminists wee natural enemies. Now he wants to be George Carlin? What? Did he just realized last week that his daughters are going to grow up and be women who might be the subject of hostile [...]

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post In defense of crying at work   1 year, 6 months ago · View

    I’ve cried at work, but always because of hostile or otherwise unbareable workplace conditions. In those cases, I went into the bathroom to cry, because it was so not a safe environment for me to let my emotions show.

    I saw a comment on the Salon article yesterday about this where someone was like, “Yeah, yeah, Emerson is a liberal school in a blue state. Call me when this happens at a mid-west school, blah blah blah” I couldn’t believe this person, who I assume considers themselves some sort of progressive or maybe an [...]

    OMG did she so seriously compare gay people to kids who drool on themselves or need to be fed through a tube or are stupid because of some learning disability!? How dare she!!! I didn’t realize recognizing that gay people need a special effort on our part to understand and include them and to be [...]

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post Quick Hit: On Reeva Steenkamp’s boyfriend and disability   1 year, 8 months ago · View

    Wow, I’m more than a little put off but this. I’m disabled–I have autism and PTSD/depresion that I’ve struggled with since my childhood. That article by Smith is beyond obnoxious. She/he presumes to know what Pistorious represented to disabled people like myself but clearly does not. Pistorious represented to many disabled people not so much [...]

    Wow. I mean, I know the arguments against it were insanely sexist and stupid (logic dictates) to be see how people actually made to effort to make them, wow. Rhe presumptions here are just remarkable and laughable. Indulge me here: 1. Because men couldn’t bother to listen to women = women “do not care” 2. [...]

  • Oh, Cavuto. Some poor woman gave birth that dude. I love how Jon Stewart once mocked his use of the sensational question mark in his headline with “Cavuto is a…journalist???” Spot on. Yes, he made a valid point but that’s what he does–he say something that a sane, decent, reasonable person might say but it’s [...]

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post Obama taps gay latino poet for 2nd Inauguration   1 year, 9 months ago · View

    I don’t even understand why there’s a benediction for the inauguration for the president of our supposedly SECULAR government. That was a totally rhetorical comment. No need to answer me on that. I know why. You know, considering how anti-gay American conservative Christianity is what’s fueling things like the Uganda Kill the Gay bill and [...]

  • The idea that the role of gender isn’t a factor in violence because some women commit violent acts is a rationalization and a denial of why most women who commit violence do so. It can be argued they commit violence because they live in a male-dominant society where violence committed by men is common and [...]

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post Weekly Feminist GIF   1 year, 10 months ago · View

    Ha! Was I had this gif yesterday when a self-proclaimed “midwife” (I have no way of verifying that) called me “sunshine” on Twitter for criticizing her flippant attitude toward something I found offensive and demeaning to women who had had an abortion.

    With friends like this…

  • Definitely adding this to my to-read list.

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post A woman dies in Ireland after being denied medically necessary abortion   1 year, 11 months ago · View

    I am admittedly very affected by this story. Not only do I know the Catholic Church’s “pro-life” stance very well (spent almost 9 years at a Catholic University, including studying philosophy and theology in the grad program), I had an abortion for an ectopic pregnancy that had been not properly dx’d when I showed up [...]

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post The unbearable politicizing of black hair   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I have a confession: I’m a white person and when I see a black woman with a natural hair style, I turn green with envy. I had the good fortune of going to a junior high and high school where the white and black student populations were roughly equal, both around 40%. I have black [...]

    Awesome. Glad to see this happening. Also gives me ideas about how to advocate for “autism etiquette” as I as an autistic person am getting pretty damn fed up with people assuming I’m “disordered” or otherwise cannot speak for myself.

  • Cade DeBois commented on the blog post Checkmate, Pro-Choicers! A Tumblr full of anti-choice gems   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    Even though many people who are pro-life may be vicious, sociopathic misogynists who’d rather see women dead, scarred, traumatized or suffering along with their children under crushing poverty than acknowledge that abortion is a genuinely needed aspect of comprehensive women’s health care, this comment isn’t about calling them that. This really is appalling, both the [...]
