    Ooh, an excellent selection! Came on to the site today to see if there was any mention of that ridiculous ‘creep shaming’ thing the MRAs are all worked up about (apparently, reacting negatively to someone stalking you is the same as blaming rape victims for their assaults- go figure!). Now, Sweden, what’s the deal? How [...]

    I dunno, I think they could have kept the joke while still allowing more time for the women leaders they invited to speak for a significant amount of time. But, the way TDS’s interview style work, with the interviewer knowing the joke beforehand and the interviewee discovering it in-interview, maybe pulling it off in the [...]

    Yesterday, I saw a homosexual brother of the OSB give a talk on the Church’s teachings on homosexuality. He tried in every way he could to express that he disagreed with the Church’s position- tried to show where room for theological interpretation might be, tried to emphasize the personhood of gay people- but he couldn’t [...]

    Oh, Padre… the Church isn’t going back after Vatican II. The sisters run their own communities now. I think you’ll find controlling them a little harder than it once was- an obstacle in your path for which sisters and the communities enriched by them will be very thankful. We stand by the women religious.

    A Student Response to Guyland A woman, a white woman, at a feminist book discussion, once opined that all women, of all walks of life, have a common experience of female oppression. As the room nodded in agreement, one woman, a black woman, stood up, and said, ‘Well, no. What do you see when you [...]

    True. I guess in addition to more less-privileged characters, we need more less-privileged writers and publishers.

    Agh, the Cracked article… I was reading it, going, ‘Yeah, yeah, finally’. Then he started in on that ‘men have no control over our sex drive’ thing, and I died a little inside.

    Also, PETA… ugh, PETA. They won’t stop until animals are treated with more respect and dignity than women.

    What’s that, Belvedere? You want me to drink Smirnoff instead? Well, gosh, if you say so…

    So far, I’ve been skimming by on the fact that the government thinks I registered (in my state, they register you automatically when you register to vote, so I can’t exercise my right as a citizen without implicitly consenting to have my head blown off for Halliburton) and they don’t know that I’ve burned my [...]

    Isn’t that argument more or less, ‘a woman’s place is in the home’? That seems awful on so many levels.

  • Emmett J Doyle commented on the blog post Drafting Women for Military Service   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    It’s true that women soldiers face different challenges than men, including much, much greater rate of sexual assault, but it’s also true that men face much greater rate of death, proportional to the amount of the force they make up. Women’s death rates are disproportionately small in the military compared to the percent of the [...]

    Hold the hell on- you’re using biology to argue that gender should determine one’s role, responsibilities, and so forth, or has justified such determinism historically? I could argue that women have breasts and get pregnant and are therefor needed in the late pregnancy and early childhood periods, which makes them less dependable employees and justifies [...]

    I was raised by a single father after my parents divorced and all four of us kids chose to leave my physically and psychologically abusive mother. I was an autism spectrum boy with ‘special needs’, and my father was indispensable to my upbringing. If my father had been drafted, who would have raised me? The [...]

    Presumably ‘yes, draft us’, but most war mongers are not feminists.

  • Emmett J Doyle commented on the blog post Drafting Women for Military Service   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    I concur! I think it’s a tragedy, that my sisters will never get to experience the visceral thrill of burning their draft card.

  • Emmett J Doyle wrote a new blog post: The Problem with Demi and Ashton   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    As I walked into the dining center today, I was asked to take a picture with a sign that said, ‘Real Men Don’t Buy Girls’- a sign that, I later found out, is for the Demi and Ashton foundation, against human trafficking and sex work. Being the feminist I am, I obliged immediately- taking only [...]

    Now I want to see young adult fiction starring an alcoholic, unmannered, crutch-using, unattractive, POC beggar/shoplifter/scavenger who speaks in an extremely colloquial dialect.

    You may think I am being sarcastic- I am not. That would be an interesting character.

    Woops, replaced the male deaths in third class percentage with male deaths in crew percentage. It should read 84%, not 78%. Weird how even though they were locked down there, 46% of the women still managed to escape, compared to 16% of men…. but, it couldn’t have had anything to do with gender, right?

  • Emmett J Doyle commented on the blog post (Rich, White) Women and Children First!   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    Eh, I’m sorry, but I do take issue with this. Yes, the sacrifice wasn’t completely one-sided, and yes there were factors of class involved, too- that should be recognized. But, that doesn’t change the fact that an awful lot of men really did die, for the sake of women, out of the ideals of chivalry- [...]
