    Wow. Honestly, this does not surprise me–women are constantly being judged on how they look and we are always going to be compared to the Beauty Myth. It’s just so sad. This woman is an Olympian swimmer–why are they not focused on that?

  • From what I have observed (I teach 7th grade Reading/Language Arts) The Hunger Games is drawing the attention from both genders! I read the books because my students were all reading them. At first, I noticed that a few of my boys were reading the series and I always ask them about what they are [...]

    Those statistics seem pretty bogus.

    Just another reason (of the thousands) why I hate Fox News. UGG!

    Decades and decades of burning bras? Wow. What an accurate portrayl of feminism. I know it’s completely accurate for me…right after my daily cup of coffee I got out on my front lawn and burn a bra. Yup, everyday. The neighbors love me!

    Christi, thank YOU for sharing your story. You seem like a very strong person and you make me never want to give up.

    Thanks for the insight, Matt. I really appreciate hearing a male’s perspective. I agree with you–most times people always expect the worst to occur.

    And…I am continuing to run :)

    Thanks for the comment bookaholic, you offer some great ideas in talking with my parents. I let my parents know the route I take and they have realized how close I am to houses ( I run right on the sidewalk next to houses for most of my route ) and I even have been [...]

    Wow, Franzia–thank you for the reply. I feel exactly the same. Why can’t I, a working productive citizen of my community use the resources the city provides for me? Why do I have to live in fear all the damn time? I shouldn’t have to. Too long have I been told by society that I [...]

    I guess this is a ranting session, but I also need feedback from the feministing community. This summer I moved in with my parents due to economic reasons.  I haven’t lived with them for 5 years so they are now seeing how I conduct my daily routine.  Lately I’ve been training for a 5K and [...]

    My mom is a talk radio lover and the other day she told me about a news story she heard while driving to work.  It was about 12-year-old Jessica Jordan, a middle school student in Granada Hills, CA.  During lunch, Jessica witnessed three male schoolmates knock down a finch nest containing a mama bird and her [...]
