    I wouldn’t be the first person in a room to espouse the positive aspects of being in a relationship. A lot of my friends would actually tell me that I’m the person who would first bring up why relationships are time-wasters (who can write papers, attend school, work, and have a social life while trying to love [...]

    Love this post. So. Much. It’s great to hear of other feminists’ exhaustion and difficulties and to allow ourselves to not define feminism as having to always be “on the ball” and “sexism watchdog” or “free of all insecurities” ! I’d recommend two books to anyone who gets a little bogged down sometimes in the [...]

    “Why does that disapproval dissipate when a “cause”, any cause, comes into the picture?” Maybe we should throw around consent as a concept along with the means to an end argument. COuld it be that disapproval dissipates when a cause is in the picture because we, as a viewing audience, see the women who participate [...]

    Hard Candy was a very interesting film and an awesome performance by Ellen Page. If i remember correctly though doesn’t the character sort of manipulate Patrick Wilson’s character into letting his guard down by representing herself as a potential hookup for him? It has been forever since I’ve seen Aliens though, definitely going to pick [...]

    I’ve been watching this meme circulate lately about the badass qualities of certain women in movies. It was created originally of course as a Twilight hating meme and has since morphed, as you can read, into a ‘Star Wars is awesome’ meme. The text of the meme says: “When the love of Hermione’s life left [...]

    I’ve run into these sorts of situations as well and found that telling someone that “It’s just a phase” is the quickest way of demeaning someone’s worth as a person along with the worth of their choices (which are arguably tied together in many ways). Thank you for your post, it’s good to hear these [...]

    Thank you so much for your insight. I definitely forgot to mention that I do not understand programming like this at all so I could (and did) miss some aspects of it that others (like you) would catch! With what you said in mind, I suppose I should rephrase my desires for the application in [...]

    Amid all the information coming out about Apple’s Siri not directing women to a place to pick up emergency birth control or to get an abortion ( See Here and Here… and Here), I decided to do a little experiment of my own. I’m a little behind the times and only have a 3GS so I borrowed the [...]

    Down in Texas, country music rules the radio waves. Everyone loves it. Even  I love it. But sometimes, as I’m jamming along in the car, I cringe singing along to some of the lyrics that go with those all-too-familiar power chords. Let’s get a couple of things out of the way before my first post in [...]
