  • Here’s a similar article detailing the carceral consequences of cisnormativity in relation to this tragedy.

    Thank you for sharing this.

    While I do agree with much of your sentiment that Thatcher was “anti-feminist” (though in many ways as staunchly feminist as she was its adversary), I think that we should look at the life and work of Thatcher devoid of an American/Republican appropriation of her words, ideas, and actions. In Was Margaret Thatchet a Feminist?” , The [...]

    She should simply ask the same of him and state, “Well, if my sexual orientation so fundamentally alters my own political proclivities and ideological viewpoints, then cannot the same be said of your heterosexuality?” Heteronormativity works by rendering all other forms of sexual identity, expression, orientation and preference abject and other, while thereby simultaneously rendering [...]

    While I understand that the quoted “reminder from E.J. Graff”, is that, a quote, there should be some sort of indication or nuanced revision of his quote to also include that rape is utilized to control men’s, genderqueer, intersex and trans lives as well. Although women are predominantly the object of sexual violence, they are [...]

    I sent this message to one of the co-writers. You can send him a message on this page here, and I recommend we all do because this deals with both cissexism/transphobia and sex worker stigma. My message: Dear Mr. Baker, I am writing this article in regards to your recently co-written article, “Woman Dies in a [...]

  • Ragnar wrote a new blog post: On Thin-Shaming   2 years, 5 months ago · View

    After much discussion with a variety of people – activists, feminists, thinkers, average people – I would like to discuss something particularly relevant to our discussions of lookism, body-shaming and fat-shaming/fatphobia: thin-shaming. I am thin. I have always been thin. I am thinner than many females, and almost all men. I model because of my [...]

    I would like to make a point as a vegetarian, virtually vegan, feminist who has dealt with isusues. Disagreeing with a single campaign of one advocacy group such as PETA does not mean you should therefore disavow all animal right’s groups or ideologies. Simply because PETA is misogynist (true in this campaign), does not mean [...]

    Regarding this: “The only organization that makes me want to eat meat just to protest them.” That’s actually a fairly shallow and somewhat dangerous thing to say. Simply because you disagree with the political agenda and tactics of one animal rights organization does not mean you should thus, out of spite , try to go against [...]

    Great piece, Jos. I sent the following email. Anyone, feel free to copy-and-paste this as the template for your own message. PLEASE SEND OUT SOMETHING – ANYTHING – TO THEM SO THAT THEY THINK TWICE IN THE CASE THIS HAPPENS AGAIN! To whom this may concern, I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the [...]

    Concerning McCain’s statement, I would like to bring up a point of discussion that concerns the intersections of media, public perceptions and politics. The point McCain brought up, which is the notion that the Republican party has been homogenized in terms of its political stances (e.g. ‘all Republicans are anti-gay’) is a stereotype rigorously enforced [...]
