  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Friday Feminist Fuck Yeah: It’s National Masturbation Month   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    “I live under the idea that you shouldn’t involve other people in your sexuality without their permission. People shouldn’t have to look at an image of someone else masturbating just because they were out running errands.” Hear, hear. We often talk about our right to our own sexuality and how it is a private issue. [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    More attention should be paid to the ignorance demonstrated by the Virginia miscarriage notification bill. It is NOT possible to report “within 24 hours of fetal death” because in the average miscarriage, you don’t know when that is. I’ve had three miscarriages. I’ve also had spotting in a normal pregnancy. Ah yes, I can see [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Will the teen mom shaming ever stop?   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    As the child of a teen mother, I can tell you it sucked. It was bad to have a mother who could not get a good job because she was uneducated. And it was bad to be parented by someone who wasn’t an adult. And yes, the reasons it sucked to have a teen mother [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post For the mamas who don’t get love on Mother’s Day   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    I’m conflicted. My husband and I had our only child when I was 39. We both had good educations and careers. Five years later, he died–and since young widows are rare these days, the slut-shaming began: Is the father in the picture? Was this PLANNED? Even though I was a self supporting adult. I cannot [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Weekly Feminist GIF   1 year, 5 months ago · View

    I’d rather be called a female, which is factually true, than a “girl,” which is untrue and infantalizing. This gif makes me pretty irritated at Feministing. Please STOP giving space to television shows and people who identify women as girls. If you can’t talk about women without giving these people space, at least call them [...]

  • Thank you, Smash. I so agree. Thanks for saying it.

    I will NEVER watch a show about women that has “girls” as or in the title. Never.

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post The Wednesday Weigh-In: How are we doing in the aftermath of Sandy Hook?   1 year, 9 months ago · View

    How are we doing? We’re following the video game tradition of prettifying and romanticizing it, that’s how we’re doing. The long-haired and slender principal’s photo appears everywhere. The school psychologist, who was 56 years old and a little pudgy, died just as heroically but doesn’t have her picture on the front pages as often. And [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Nancy Pelosi shuts down Luke Russert for sexist question   1 year, 10 months ago · View

    We can’t ignore or just wave away the fact that she WAS asked, in person, and in public, to step aside because of her age. McCain’s age was something discussed around him. No one that I remember directly attacked him for it. This is the reason Nancy Pelosi was correct in saying, “I’ll treat this [...]

    I want to be more like her.

  • Please. PLEASE. This is a FEMINIST website. Please stop repeating the nonsense about women “without the right to vote. She was born without her right to vote being “recognized” or “guaranteed by the Constitution.” Men did not” give” us the right to vote, although they’d like to think so. This bad turn of phrase is [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post New Romney ad geared toward women is a joke   2 years ago · View

    When Romney was asked, “Do you support equal pay for women and the Lily Ledbetter Act,” he said, “I’ll get back to you on that.” Clearly he does not SUPPORT equal pay for women. He may not give a hang one way or the other, but he clearly does not SUPPORT it. Even if he [...]

  • I’m no good in abortion “debates” because I can’t see how any educated thinking person can believe that a fetus is human life. This is because I have some knowledge of science. And I know even the Catholic church was not vocal in abortion opposition until the 1900s, allowing it up until what they called [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Are men more violent?   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    It’s a very good point. Whenever a mass murder occurs, the cry is “banish the guns” rather than “take a look at the perps!” It’s one reason I think stronger gun control laws are sexist: women tend not to commit gun violence so stronger restrictions on guns would punish the 51 percent of the population [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Important info, infographics & actions on gun violence   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I’d very much like to see the numbers of legally owned guns/handguns involved in violence. And I mean REALLY legally owned. If a teen takes the family car without parental permission and commits a crime with it, the media generally reports the teen “stole” the car. Which is right. If a teen steals guns owned [...]

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Important info, infographics & actions on gun violence   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I have a great idea: Let’s make murder illegal so it doesn’t happen. And so it is with guns. Making them illegal will not stop crazy people from being crazy. About three miles from where I live, a jeweller was robbed at gunpoint. With an illegally obtained weapon. It is nothing but the truth to [...]

    “I mean, what else could a shackle refer to? Seriously?”

    I am glad the shoe got cancelled.

    Now will people please reconsider those nose piercings? Because, SERIOUSLY, they are traditionally used to indicate slaves or farm animals.

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Checkmate, Pro-Choicers! A Tumblr full of anti-choice gems   2 years, 3 months ago · View

    Please stop saying “pro-life” when you mean “anti-choice.”

    I am sorry to have to point that out, again.

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Checkmate, Pro-Choicers! A Tumblr full of anti-choice gems   2 years, 3 months ago · View

    She also doesn’t seem to know the difference between “check,” (I am able to win) and “checkmate,” (the game is over).

    Curious that she calls us pro-choicers instead of baby-killers.

  • F.Toth commented on the blog post Weekly Feminist Reader   2 years, 3 months ago · View

    “Push Girls.” “Girls.” Girls this, Girls that. Why isn’t Femisting calling women out on labeling themselves “girls???”

    My daughter is a girl. She’s 6. “Push Girls” are women.

    And language DOES matter.
