  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post I’m PURE, so I respect the opposite gender!   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    As a fellow Christian, I have to say I get irked by the constant assumptions about my views on such things, from fellow Christians and non-Christians alike. Maybe it’s my liberal arts college experience talking, but after two years there, sometimes I can’t even relate to my Christian friends from before. We just clearly see [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Anti-Natalist or Pro-Choice?   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    This is an argument I haven’t heard before. I myself think that many people would be better off if they didn’t have children, or delayed having children, and I myself don’t want children. Sometimes I’ll joke with people that my point is even justified in the Bible (Ecclesiastes 4:2-3, paraphrased, the dead and those not [...]

    I rejoice that you have found such a strong supportive community. Your family is just as valid as blood kin, and I too hope that someday the whole world will recognize it.

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Transphobia and tampons   2 years, 3 months ago · View

    I hadn’t seen this ad before (I’ve been out of the U.S. for the past couple months). However, I’m disappointed that the sexism and transphobia I left behind hasn’t died out in my absence. Even if tampons are only marketed towards those who menstruate, what can they gain by alienating those who don’t? I never [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Sixteen and Feminist   2 years, 8 months ago · View

    I remember identifying as a feminist in high school, though I hadn’t heard many of the “hairy lesbian” stereotypes. People just accepted that I was because I was known as incredibly liberal, (vice president of the Young Democrats my senior year) and I wasn’t really in with the “in crowd” anyway. I didn’t mind if [...]

    Good for Jessica! I am often appalled by the cruelty exhibited by children of all genders, and it is truly heartwarming to hear about someone standing up for what is right, at any ages. Also, glad to hear she didn’t get in trouble for hitting the boys; so often these things turn into a “you’re [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post The Name Game   2 years, 8 months ago · View

    I can’t believe people still use “Mr. and Mrs. Hisfirstname Surname” in any event. That is one of the biggest hates I harbor toward “traditional marriage.” I have already decided that if I ever get married and someone refers to me as “Mrs. Hisfirstname Hislastname” I’m going to tell them they have the wrong couple; [...]

  • Didn’t they also define Aniston’s character as a “maneater” in the previews? That didn’t sit well with me, since it seems to undermine the severity of her actions. I haven’t seen the film, and I don’t plan to, since I don’t want to contribute to this kind of crap (voting with my dollar and all [...]

  • I am sorry that your coworker is so set into her view of things that she cannot see how meaningful your relationship is. Marriage can be financially beneficial (in the form of wedding registry and tax write-offs) and it seems that some people take the wrong view of why they should become married. Furthermore, I [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Reconciling Zen Buddhism and Feminism   2 years, 9 months ago · View

    All religions are complex, based on the interpretations of millions of believers down the centuries, each with their own unique perspective and social issues to face. As a Christian, I have been confronted with numerous examples of the horrors committed in the name of Christ. Biblical passages talk about how wives should be subservient to [...]

    If only our leaders did have to go through this much red tape to start a war.

  • I don’t think that Maya is trying to say that men don’t have it bad. Most of us are aware that women in industrialized countries like the U.S. generally have a longer life expectancy than their male counterparts. This is a matter of intersectionality, since many of the women (and men) facing these challenges belong [...]

  • All these deaths are tragic reminders of how we so rarely “support our troops.” I’ve always hated those bumper stickers because I know that by “troops” they tend to mean “straight male troops”. Very rarely do they bring up the atrocities and abuses servicewomen face on a daily basis, just to do their job. The [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post The Name Change   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    Ugh, I can’t believe there are people out there, even feminists, who claim that there is any reason to change your name upon marriage. I can understand some people not wanting to have their parents’ name (if the parents were abusive, for example) but I don’t think choosing your husband’s name is the way to [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Let’s change the focus of dieting, please.   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    “When we teach kids about being healthy, we don’t point at fat kids and say they’re ugly.” I wouldn’t be so sure. Isn’t that essentially what the health police are saying, without saying it? I’ll never forget the day I had had enough of my dad’s fat-shaming antics (note, no one in our family would [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Expecting a cheerleader to root for her rapist is repulsive   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    This story makes me sick all over every time I hear it. The cult of personality surrounding athletes in American schools sickens me to the core. Who the hell cares if she won’t cheer for a player, especially one who raped her? People that obsessed with school spirit need to get some meaning into their [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Oh, Texas   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    This whole debacle is sickening. I would say I’m happy that they’re being upfront about the real reason for the legislation, but that makes it worse, because a lot of people would support them for that. This is like people getting affronted over ethnic studies in Arizona. Not the same thing, but in a similar [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Sports TV is an imposition of male culture   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    I should preface my comments by saying I hate sports, anywhere, anytime, any kind, and I feel disgusted having to watch them, since I view them as classless brutality. The show Bones has a poignant quote about that at one point. However, my feminist objection comes from the fact that mainstream sports in the U.S. [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post A man raped me. I am not ashamed.   2 years, 12 months ago · View

    I am very moved by this post. I’m so glad that more and more people are coming out and saying that they should not feel ashamed that someone else raped them. When I was young and first learned that people blame themselves for rape – and worse, that society around them blames them for rape, [...]

  • dark_morgaine_le_fey commented on the blog post Enough is Enough   2 years, 12 months ago · View

    Enough is most definitely enough. We have to maintain constant vigilance. It gets tiring, but I would rather fight the issue every day of my life than have to suffer through an unwanted pregnancy and forced labor. If it’s intolerable to me, though very unlikely to be needed at this point, how much more so [...]
