  • Emily commented on the blog post BREAKING: OMFG Justin Bieber is anti-choice   3 years, 5 months ago · View

    He sounds like a typical uninformed teenager. Since the “STOP KILLING BABIES!” crowd is the loudest, people who don’t really pay attention usually just go with that rhetoric. The vagueness of the statement “I don’t really believe in abortion” sounds like what the majority of my health class sounded like in ninth grade. It’s a [...]

  • Emily commented on the blog post The smaller the body size, the bigger the paycheck?   3 years, 5 months ago · View

    Correlation does not mean causation. However, the correlation certainly is interesting. It is possible that the women who have higher paying jobs are better able to keep their weight down, as they are more likely to afford to belong to a gym and perhaps have more resources to eat healthier. While I think that there [...]

  • Emily commented on the blog post Misogyny on ‘Wife Swap’   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    That’s Wife Swap. They find people on the polar opposite ends of an issue and mix up their families. I’ll bet that the wife from the other family was uber-feminist and fought him every step of the way. It is not uncommon on that show to see a husband who is used to being waited [...]

    What’s with all the sports analogies in the anti gay marriage argument? I think that making a baseball comparison to win an argument should be considered a logical fallacy.

  • Emily commented on the blog post Weight Watchers plan changes are more about profit than health   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    I’ve done Weight Watchers, or Chocoholics Anonymous, as I like to call it. I went to the meetings because I found that I was more disciplined if I knew I was going to weight in next Wednesday. While paying was annoying, the meetings actually were pretty good. Maybe they weren’t worth a full $20, but [...]

  • Emily commented on the blog post Quote of the Day, brought to you by Secretary Clinton   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    That’s awesome. Of course, the rest of the internet is probably going “OMG What a bitch! Most women pay more attention to fashion than men, that’s not sexist!”

    The trailer alone gives me the heebie jeebies.

  • Emily commented on the blog post Anita Hill, still courageous 20 years later   3 years, 9 months ago · View

    The wife of the man who sexually harassed her called her out of the blue and asked for an apology for testifying against her husband. You don’t think that could be a bit damaging and opening old wounds? Why would Virginia Thomas do that? Her “olive branch” story is crap. This is a further attempt [...]

  • Emily commented on the blog post Women’s Tattoos and Piercings   3 years, 9 months ago · View

    1. How many tattoos or piercings do you have? 8 piercings total. No tattoos, yet. 2. Where are they located? Are they easy to hide? Two are in my left ear lobe, three in my right ear lobe and one in my right cartilage. I also have nose and naval piercings. The only one that [...]

  • Emily commented on the blog post I like it when you pick up your purse and do something.   3 years, 9 months ago · View

    I totally agree. These memes are for attention as opposed to doing anything for breast cancer. If there was a viral status update posting your bra color, or where you like to put your purse for fun, it wouldn’t bother me as much. But doing it under the guise of “raising awareness” for breast cancer, [...]

  • Emily commented on the blog post What We Missed: Girls Gone Wild, child care costs and more   3 years, 11 months ago · View

    Did you watch the video? She makes it very clear that women certainly can have adverse psychological symptoms after an abortion, but that it is not widespread enough to make it into a classified mental illness. I believe there are some studies that have concluded that an unplanned pregnancy can cause anxiety (duh), but that [...]

  • mlemac28 wrote a new blog post: The Privilege of Pam Tebow’s Choice   4 years, 5 months ago · View

    We’ve all been reading and writing plenty about the FoF Super Bowl ad featuring Tim and Pam Tebow.  While there are many criticisms of CBS and how they are airing a probably anti-choice type of ad, while refusing to air the United Church of Christ ad and Mancrunch gay dating site ad, there are some issues [...]

  • mlemac28 wrote a new blog post: Girl’s perceptions of math may come from teachers   4 years, 6 months ago · View

    I thought this was an interesting article.
    In some ways, the belief that girls aren’t good at math can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

  • mlemac28 wrote a new blog post: My experience with some different methods of BC   4 years, 6 months ago · View

    I want to first start off by saying that my experiences aren’t universal.  The problems and benefits which I had with the birth control methods might not be the same for other readers.  These are just my experiences and thoughts, as well as advice as to what might make intercourse with these methods more pleasurable. The week [...]

  • Emily wrote a new blog post: Is “Lucy” feminist?   5 years, 3 months ago · View

    My boyfriend and I were having a discussion recently about "I Love Lucy", which is easily one of my favorite shows of all time.  We disagreed as to whether the show was an overall positive portrayal of women, or negative. Considering that the show was produced in the 50s, when a married couple couldn’t even be shown [...]

  • Emily wrote a new blog post: Arkansas Families First needs help   5 years, 9 months ago · View

    In terms of proposals on ballots this election, California is getting much of the attention.  I certainly hope and pray that prop 8 is voted down, and I have donated what I can to it, but I’d also like to bring another proposed initiative going up for a vote. In Arkansas, Act 1 on the ballot is [...]

  • Emily wrote a new blog post: Antibiotics and Birth Control   5 years, 9 months ago · View

    A couple of weeks ago, I was on antibiotics for an ear infection.  It was just a standard Z-pack, two pills the first day and one pill every day after that.  My boyfriend came to visit me for the weekend and then went back to Memphis, where he lives.  A couple of days later, I was sitting [...]
