    I think that it’s all about context with trigger warnings. If I am on a feminist blog or website I know that they will be discussing issues of rape and sexual violence etc. etc., likewise if I go to the PeTA website I expect to see graphic depictions of animal abuse. I don’t need a [...]

    @Jos – part of the problem I have is that the article has three sentences of substance and a lead-in to the video. One is about her appearance, and that’s a third of post. That is part of what creates an overall feel that I get when reading this that we are being presented with a [...]

    Or at least, that’s what I hear from a lot of the men I meet at shows as a lady in a punk rock band. The new Rolling Stone Top 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time demonstrates just how wrong their attitude is. First off, let’s look at the voters who selected the players on [...]

  • Kelly wrote a new blog post: Bachmann Sexism Watch: “Too Much Makeup”   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    Really HuffPo? Now she’s wearing too much makeup? Eye makeup and some pink on her lips? That’s too much makeup? REALLY? Please stop attacking Michele Bachmann, and all the other women in politics, just for being women, or for being feminine. Seriously. This is ridiculous. We’re talking about someone who is a global warming skeptic, who [...]
