    hm… I dislike that it’s like a problem to say “hey maybe lesbians ARE more common to this movement for a reason.” B/c I seriously doubt the # of lesbians in feminism reflects the national average for population? One thing I was confused about here was when you defined “feminism”: “I would define feminism most [...]

    Thumbnail A SYTYCB entry Everyone has probably seen the “What guys want” lists that show up month after month, year after year, in women’s magazines- from those aimed at preteens to more adult issues of Cosmo, magazines love to remind us that our bodies are a constant performance and we should always want to know what [...]

    “Pop music shouldn’t have to apologize for being what it is.” But shouldn’t we critique something that has a heavy influence on society and how people interpret things like sexuality, and relationships? Sure it doesn’t have to “apologize” for being what it is and we don’t have to necessarily be ashamed for concessions we make, [...]

  • Miley is badass most of the time. She’s had her booboos in the past but for the most part she’s really upfront about being who she is even if this doesn’t fit 90% of people’s ideas of how she should be, because they can’t get over the idea that she is growing up and does [...]

    Thumbnail A SYTYCB Entry (image courtesy of AccessHollywood.com) Several summers ago I was working at an overnight camp as an arts and crafts director/counselor help, and as usual, I had a cabin full of middle school aged girls.   If you’ve ever worked with kids before, you probably know that there’s always a few who are resistant to talking, or [...]

    edit: should read potential “hurt” not hate

  • NotaPrincess commented on the blog post Breast Regards: The “I (heart) Boobies” Bracelet Ban   1 year, 11 months ago · View

    I think the potential good of “I heart Boobies” type campaigns tends to be over-emphasized. We’ve basically reached a point where the entire culture is saturated with the understanding that Yes, Breast Cancer Exists, And You Should Get Checked. And it’s great that we’re saturated with that particular message, but it means that every additional [...]

    followed this from your twitter- really glad to already be reading blogs from other feminists from the conference! :) (roxiluna27 on my twitter). Anyhow, I’m glad you wrote this because it’s been something I’ve been cognizant of but not totally… willing to acknowledge outright as I’ve grown into my feminism. Back in the day I [...]

    I’m glad she went and did the show. I heard there were calls for her to cancel previous to the show and I had hoped she wouldn’t. She’s the type of person who can make so much more out of something using her voice rather than avoiding it.
