  • Esmeralda wrote a new blog post: Can’t take the trauma anymore…   2 years, 8 months ago · View

    I’m in a tremendous amount of pain these days due to a long history of male-inflicted trauma I have experienced over a period of many years.  Sometimes I feel as if I’m the only woman who has ever dealt with such heinous behavior from men.  It really helps me to read about experiences that other [...]

  • Esmeralda wrote a new blog post: Please Support My New Website and Feminist Work   3 years ago · View

    I’m posting this as sort of a little shameless self-promotion.   I am in the process of revamping my website , and I wanted to invite as many feminists as possible to view it.  Last year, I held a state beauty pageant title and I was one of the first pageant queens to promote a platform on reproductive [...]

    “The harder a guy has to work to get into your pants, the better he will treat the girl wearing them”, huh?? I once made a guy wait TEN YEARS before I gave in and slept with him. We were friends for a long time and I knew he liked me, but for some reason [...]

  • Esmeralda commented on the blog post Abuse through the laws meant to protect?   3 years, 1 month ago · View

    That is some serious bullshit!! Can I ask what caused this guy to think you were stalking him? In my experience, guys are quick to use the “oh this crazy bitch is stalking me” in order to pump up their own egos after being turned down by a woman or when a woman gets angry [...]

    When I was Miss Illinois, I spoke with Dr. Carhart over the phone…twice. I once told him, “You do know there’s a price on your head, right?” To which he matter of factly replied, “Yep, I know.”

    Tracy, thank you for sharing. What you described sounds A LOT like what I’ve experienced. I too dated a few guys who tried to dominate and control what I look like and what I do in my spare time. I HATE that!! And I too am now totally asexual. I have gone out on a [...]

    K Sturge, I am soooo glad to know that there are other women out there whose brains and bodies have “shut down” too. Whatever is causing it, I hope it fixes itself soon. As much as I enjoy being “safe” from men, not ever having any sex or sexual thoughts anymore is starting to make [...]

    I’m wondering if my sudden “shut down” is a form of post-traumatic stress?? This isn’t a conscious choice for me; my brain just won’t let me feel any sexual desire anymore.

  • Esmeralda wrote a new blog post: I’m a woman who hates men   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    I admit it–I’m a feminist who hates men. I feel nothing but revulsion, disgust, and distrust for men. I’m that type of woman everyone makes stereotypical jokes about. I haven’t always hated men. I used to have a high sex drive, and I wanted to get married and have children and a family of my own just like [...]

  • Thumbnail A few months ago, the Ms. Magazine posted an article about the Miss America Pageant discussing why more women aren’t protesting the pageant on the grounds that it is sexist and that the contestants are brainless beauties who only push Conservative “safe” issues for their platforms like abstinence-only sex-education, cancer prevention, world peace, etc. I’m sure [...]

  • Esmeralda commented on the blog post The Freedom Not To Date   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    I feel your pain, sister. I too do not date much at all anymore because I am burnt out on men putting on Oscar-winning performances pretending they want a real relationshp with me just so that they can eventually get laid and then bolt and call me a whore for giving in after a few [...]

  • Esmeralda commented on the blog post Child-free… or Just Free?   3 years, 10 months ago · View

    Yes you are right, the women who are so worried about your decision not to have children ARE members of the Misery Loves Company Club. Think about it, people who are happy with their own lives don’t give a shit about what other people choose to do with their own live. I know this well [...]

  • Esmeralda commented on the blog post “Termination”   3 years, 11 months ago · View

    I had an abortion when I was in college, too. I became pregnant by my longtime boyfriend. It wasn’t something I was happy about having to do, but I knew it was the only choice for me. At the time, I kept it a secret for a long time….mainly because it was nobody’s business and [...]

  • Esmeralda wrote a new blog post: Stop labeling women as “psychos”!!!   4 years ago · View

    I’ve been waiting for the new website layout to be completed so that I could post this long-awaited topic. It’s something that has been driving me nuts lately (no pun intended), it’s time that it was addressed and discussed, and I’m wondering if anyone else out there has dealt with this same stupid issue. Frankly, [...]

  • Esmeralda commented on the blog post What Is This Story About and Why?   4 years ago · View

    This is off topic, but could somebody tell me how to post a community blog topic of my own?? The format of this website has changed so much and I have no idea how to do it anymore!! I don’t even see a log-in link when I come to the sight anymore. My email is [...]
