    As much as we may loathe racists and bigots and be pleased whenever they are taken down a peg– Feministing should not be endorsing theft and illegal behavior towards those with whom they do not agree. A good rule of thumb is if you won’t want it being done to those whom you support (say, [...]

  • Unfortunately, there’s no difference between them. They’re all destruction of someone else’s property as a way of speaking out against what that property stands for.

  • I love you, feministing, but you’re being incredibly hypocritical right now. Time and time again this website has posted photos of feminist graffiti and lauded it . Or posted it as the photo of the day . And yet here you’re becrying it when it doesn’t suit your outlook. You can’t have it both ways. Either property destruction is [...]

    Both Mitt Romney and Scott Brown are sexist. You only need to look at their political polices to see that. But these are not the best examples of their sexism. The Brown joke about Warren not taking her clothes off is only fair. She commented on him taking his clothes off in a joking way, [...]

    Brittany Zimmerman was found murdered on April 2nd. Earlier that evening she had managed to call 911. Not hearing anything on the line, the 911 operator did address the situation as an emergency. Turns out that when the 911 tapes were released, you can hear signs of struggle. The county has of course come under scrutiny [...]

    We of the feminist community know of the split between our sisters and brothers over the role of pornography and whether it does good or harm to women. I think there is another large debate is how much of our gender roles is defined by society, and how much by nature. Every little thing in [...]

  • destra wrote a new blog post: Men Hate Their Bodies When Looking at Women   5 years, 11 months ago · View

    We’ve heard study after study on how the inundation of the contemporary ideal form can affect how a girl or a woman feels about her own body. When shows like Baywatch were introduced to Pacific Asia, the numbers of women who felt uncomfortable with their bodies shot through the roof–and unfortunately eating disorders did too. [...]
