    Happy birthday, Katie! Just one comment on the video—equating being a woman with having a vagina ignores the reality of trans* people. We should not be ignoring trans* women!

    Even if she doesn’t run again (or doesn’t win again), I kind of love her for not being satisfied with resting on her laurels. First Lady, Secretary of State, Senator… why stop there? Hlilary Clinton has shit to do.

  • Jen commented on the blog post Halloween open thread: did you go as a sexy _____?   1 year, 11 months ago · View

    I’m the pastor of a small church which hosts a Halloween event every year (as a stop for trick-or-treaters, with candy and cupcakes for the kids and hot coffee for their frazzled parents), so I wanted to go in costume but “sexy” anything was not going to fly. A brown robe (which I believe was [...]

    Marryam, I’m sorry you are going through that! Like I said in my post, I’m no doctor. My advice would be to talk to a gynecologist about what you’re experiencing. I also wonder if you have talked to your partner about it. If your relationship is healthy, he should be concerned about your well-being and [...]

    On a related note, did anyone read the piece about Sarah Robles, the weightlifter with a very good shot at the gold, who was living on food stamps because she’s “too big” (said with the most exaggerated airquotes possible) to get lucrative endorsement deals? Being at the top of your sport, if you’re female, doesn’t [...]

    I was supposed to be at Momentum this past weekend (I spent $100 for a ticket—as an unemployed graduate student, that’s a lot of money!). Reading this made me wish I could have been there all the more. But I went to the Emergency Room with a kidney infection on Friday instead, and spent Saturday [...]

    The comment about losing your virginity was kind of a throw-away line, but this is what I meant: For some women, losing one’s virginity hurts. For others, it does not. What I think is harmful is the idea that it must hurt, that you must leave blood on the bedsheets, or else you did something wrong (or [...]

    Fair warning: the following post is about sex and is somewhat explicit. I can remember only one time in high school that I tried to wear a tampon. I grabbed one of my mom’s, sat on the toilet, and tried to put it in. It wouldn’t go. I remember it just felt tight and uncomfortable. [...]
