  • It’s not the “conventional” definition, it’s the legal one too. Rape is a complex term because at the end of the day, it is most, above everything else, a crime. And a crime has statutory components that must be met to meet the burden of reasonable doubt. Rape is defined legally as a sexual assault [...]

    That’s not the point that Tom is making. He’s making the point that suicide results from mental illness or distress and that the lack of a gun in the home, given the determination of the actor to die, likely would not deter them; they would select another method. Point out to me where he says [...]

    As a regular reader here, I know that mental illness is not a foreign topic to these boards. In fact, it comes up and is addressed with some frequency. I have encountered a great deal of diversity of thought among my feminist-identified friends when it comes to how to talk about mental illness. I have [...]

    I’ve written about my family on these boards before, but in the past few days, they have journeyed from our tiny town in Montana to visit me in Los Angeles, where I currently reside. My mother and youngest sister were walking down the street with me. We were in the park and sat down on [...]

    I have always been aware that feminism, and those who hold feminist beliefs, is deeply linked to many tenants of non-violence and a majority of women I know who identify as feminist also embrace the ideas of pacifism and non-violent living. And that’s a admirable thing, which I respect them greatly for. However, it’s become [...]

    There’s been something weighing on my mind quite strongly, and I just thought I’d throw it out here and see some the thoughts I get back. Well, here goes… I am a redneck. I am from an extremely small town in western Montana (pop. Less than 600 people). Up until I left to attend school [...]

    I know feminists devote a lot of energy and time to thinking about how people have a tendency to “gender” things (and why they shouldn’t be at all) but this last week, I sort of got a short introduction into what may be the hardest things we have when it comes to un-genendering… our names.

    I have been mulling over this for a few days, since the incident occurred, and I am still trying to formulate answer as to what I think the best response is. I am part of a group that is comprised of people with varying mental disorders – this is through my therapist’s office. One of [...]

    I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, and I finally got around to posting on it, which is good. I have many friends who are conservatives and a good number who are conservative to moderate women. I also belong to a rifle range where I like to go and shoot sometimes. Through both [...]

    Ok, I have a confession to make, one that seems very inconsequential, but for some reason has gotten me some very strong responses from people – feminist and non-feminist alike. Allow me to state some background before I begin… During high school and college, I got a few select piercings – I have 5 my [...]

  • drahill wrote a new blog post: What Happens When All You Have Are Sisters?   5 years, 11 months ago · View

    I don’t think this is a HUGE issue, but it just annoys me to death, so here goes… I am one of 5 children that my parents had. All 5 are girls, ranging in age from 23 to 9. My parents are very content with this and have never expressed a desire to have it [...]

    (warning: it’s freakin’ long!) I do not know who I am going to vote for. I am vote for Obama, but I may vote for McCain. Trust me, I know what an unpopular sentiment that is, especially in the progressive blogosphere. I expect to get criticized for it. But let me explain exactly how I [...]
