  • NC73 commented on the blog post Dear SNL: You should learn about #latinafeminism   6 months, 2 weeks ago · View

    Yeah this is a total misread of the skit. Marisol wasn’t stupid, she was just a recent immigrant who didn’t really speak English all that well so it was easy for her boyfriend to manipulate her into not understanding what he really does for a living. It’s not “stupid” for a person who grew up [...]

  • NC73 commented on the blog post Checkmate, Pro-Choicers! A Tumblr full of anti-choice gems   2 years, 3 months ago · View

    I heard somewhere that an anti-choice group adopted Dr. Seuss’ famous “A person’s a person” line as a slogan, in some campaign or other, and they were promptly sued by his estate, because his family knew that he was pro-choice and would resent the misrepresentation of his words. Dunno if that’s true or not, but [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post The new fall TV season is dominated by women   3 years ago · View

    The lack of people of colour and other marginalized groups on TV is nothing new, though. It is indeed a big issue, and worthy of a lot of comment. But let’s look at it this way: Last year, TV was dominated by a bunch of white able-bodied dudes. This year, the “white” and “able-bodied” hasn’t [...]

  • nicolechat wrote a new blog post: A simple goodbye to a far-from-simple man   3 years, 1 month ago · View

    I was going to post a silly fluff piece about my dog this week. And that will come. But today, I’m writing something a little more serious. I am sad today. I am sad, because Canada has just learned of the loss of one of its most prominent politicians , a few short months after he succeeded in [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Thought leader Rick Santorum converts me on gay marriage   3 years, 1 month ago · View

    Water is water. Fair enough. Water is defined as H2O. Beer is not. It’s all very simple. So, tell me, Mr. Santorum, when does water cease to be water? If I mix a pouch of Kool-aid powder into a glass of water, then it surely stops being water and becomes Kool-aid. But what if it’s [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Wednesday Weigh-in: What is the least “lady-like” thing you’ve done?   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    Ha! This is a fun game. And hard to answer because what the fuck does lady-like even mean and how do you measure it quantifiably? I can tell you the most unladylike thing I’ve done lately: pissing behind a tree in a skirt with my panties pulled down on a side street at like 7 pm [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Scandal turns into opportunity for first female IMF chief   3 years, 3 months ago · View

    I can appreciate that the first woman heading a major international financial institution is a big deal, but is there anything to celebrate here other than her womanhood? Has she ever demonstrated any pro-woman, or even pro-worker, leanings as she’s risen through the ranks of her career? The IMF has a horrible track record for [...]

  • nicolechat wrote a new blog post: Come out to the SlutWalk to support victims of sexual assault!   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    Remember the cop in Toronto who said that women who don’t want to be sexually assaulted shouldn’t ” dress like sluts “? Well, activists in Toronto and elsewhere are fighting back! Toronto has organized the SlutWalk this Sunday. Come out for the march and stand up for every women who’s ever been told if only her hemline were [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Former SNL star Victoria Jackson’s homophobic rant against Glee   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    Her whole system of interviewing seems to be “Ignore the question, cite the Bible.” I mean just look at that last answer – how is she even responding to the question at all? It sounds like ridiculous ranting.

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post You decide: Which anti-choicer takes the cake?   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    *edit: They’re more likely to become abortion providers than president. President. Joke fail. Sorry.

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post You decide: Which anti-choicer takes the cake?   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    I would like to remind Jean Schmidt that the unaborted babies are all much more likely to grow up to be abortion providers than doctors.

    Just sayin’.

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post The smaller the body size, the bigger the paycheck?   3 years, 8 months ago · View

    I don’t really see this as America’s lack of “integrity.” Like Emily, I caution against assuming correlation = causation, but even if we are to assume that you’re more likely to get hired if you’re a thinner woman, I doubt that’s indicative of any great social injustice. I think in any culture around the world, [...]

    This.

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Acceptable? Sexism on TV – How I Met Your Mother   3 years, 8 months ago · View

    I think you’re kind of right. HIMYM is definitely prone to the same gendered stereotyping that all sitcoms are prone to and we’ve seen Barney a million times before. Like Franzia said, he’s Charlie from Two and a Half Men; he’s Joey from Friends; he’s the best friend of every single male lead in every [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Anti-choice bf doesn’t fit the mold   3 years, 8 months ago · View

    You know, some things are simply things that two people will never agree on. My boyfriend is pro-choice and has more or less feminist views on many things. But there are things he and I disagree on politically. And that’s because he and I are not the same person, and we shouldn’t strive to be. [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post Fox News: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem having an “anchor baby”   3 years, 9 months ago · View

    I don’t mean to derail, but that tagline for Fox News Latino is worthy of a whole other blog post itself. “We’re aiming at Latinos … who are deeply American, but share some of the cultural sensibilities of their parents or grandparents.” Fox News is implying that to be “deeply American” is necessarily a different [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post “Miss TSA” calendar reminds us just how unsexy some “sexy” poses are   3 years, 10 months ago · View

    I also don’t agree with the conclusion and I don’t agree that the calendar is sexist, either. I think it’s pretty clever, actually, and one could even say it has feminist connotations. Where’s the sexism? Because the models are assuming typically feminine poses, or something?

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post More Gender Policing for Shiloh from Life & Style Magazine   3 years, 12 months ago · View

    What’s particularly upsetting about this is that this media attention is ultimately what’s going to hurt the little girl as she grows up. If Shiloh does indeed continue to like this sort of clothing as she gets older – as she gets to about 11 years old or so – she’s going to have a [...]

  • nicolechat commented on the blog post You’re a WHAT?   4 years ago · View

    Honestly? I’ve been identifying as a feminist for like 7 years now and I’ve been dating a man who does not identify as a feminist for five of those years. And if I dumped him because he initially seemed thrown off by my admission that I’m a feminist, well, I would have missed out on [...]

  • That’s a good point. I mean, donating blood is a charitbale act. And many people want to participate in that. I’m sure lying on the forms/to the questioner is quite common. And how is that helpful?
