    What took her so long?

    George Carlin was saying this 40 years ago. Forty years ago. Ridiculing how women have to bring a “note” like children have to just to get something authorized. According to Carlin, there was no reason for this except to humiliate women and keep them under control of “guys,” especially since in those days almost all doctors [...]

  • This marks the point in every election cycle where I can’t take any more news and have to seek sensory deprivation of politics to save my nerves from Republican insanity which gets more extreme and ugly each time. Catch up with everybody after the election…

    On the bottommost basic level, that’s what the struggle is. Against the erasing of women’s existence!

    OK, Smash. I looked at each of the links in this post and didn’t see anything that had to do with pornography. What are you talking about? Did you mean to post that comment elsewhere and put it here by mistake?

  • Joanna commented on the blog post Enough with “I date women and trans men”   2 years, 1 month ago · View

    The movement for trans rights has made so many advancements in the past few years. But reading your description of the gender dynamics there, all I can think is: There has been no actual progress for trans people in society. Not when these backward social attitudes toward trans people characterize the (ostensibly) most progressive people [...]

Every day you’re killing living sperms in billions, So how do you feel about that, brother? I hope she reads this news story and gets a kick [...]

    I’m 52 years old. I was a middle schooler when Ms. magazine was founded, ”I Am Woman” was a hit song on the radio, and Bella Abzug was in Congress. Generationally I’m a kid sister of the Second Wave. But in my feminism I strongly align with Third Wave principles, and my hope for a better world is with the young women.

    It tells a story on atmosphere alone. It’s the most atmospheric movie I can think of. It isn’t the usual element for a director to base a whole feature-length film upon. It has to be handled very delicately and with an awareness of how to use atmospheric effects to tell a story.

    Put yourself back in ancient Rome. You’re a Christian convict who can either worship Pagan-style at the temple of Jupiter where the judge tells you to go, or it’s to the lions with you. Exact same deal. (Except for the lions.)
