  • * Sorry, I meant I just don’t KNOW if he’s the victim, at all.

  • To clarify, I don’t think victims of sexual assault should behave a certain way, or whatever it is that you implied. I just think that facts are extremely hazy and it’s VERY dangerous to write about something as confusing as this. Especially with such strong opinions. I am a huge defender of victims of sexual [...]

  • Sorry I just don’t buy that. I heard that he was fondling her breasts as well, that it was consensual! And at the end of the tweet he was like ‘bruh bruh’, implying that he was actually bragging about it! I just don’t think he is a victim, at all. Just like you said we don’t [...]

  • He hasn’t said anything, and I think it’s pretty shitty of Pryde to publish this. If we should listen to anyone, it’s him. He said he ‘didn’t miss a bar’ mid-fellatio, which leads me to believe that he enjoyed it if he was bragging about it later.

    ** Sorry I offended you, rather.

    Hi Angel. Stepped out of this discussion because, to be honest, it wound me up. But you’re right, I was wrong. I am sorry you were offended. To be 100% frank, I didn’t know this word was offensive in English, as it’s not in Portuguese. Anyway, trying to get in touch with feministing to change [...]

    “If yours is the type of allyship that’s being offered through intersectionality, then it is neither wanted nor needed.

    “You should really, REALLY do more reading on the subject before you make yourself look any more foolish.”

    Likewise :) try to read properly and not dismiss what’s inconvenient to you, is my advice.

    How am I privileged and how do I ‘dictate’ words society uses? For the FOURTH AND LAST time, because I can see you lack any kind of understanding of other cultures but your own, where I am from (where the culture was not invented by me, because, you know, I’m not a wizard) this word [...]

    Look, I get it you are offended. I already said I’m sorry, and just so you know I’m not white. It’s not up to you to decide if I really mean it or not, so you take the apology if you want to. I am trying to defend the use of the word because I [...]

    I’m not offended, I was explaining why, personally, I feel that it’s not offensive, from my cultural background. Actually, no, mulato (as its spelled in Portuguese) is actually a self identifying word, trust me I AM Brazilian. I’ve lived here all my life, and to be honest, it’s quite disappointing that in explaining a certain [...]

    ‘Mulatto’ is an accepted term where I live – Brazil. Women and men pride themselves in being mulattos and upon research I did to write this, I found it is an accepted term. I haven’t had any complaints except for this one, and I write on my personal blog for an audience from all over [...]

  • Nicole Froio commented on the blog post Barbies will ruin my future daughter’s life, and here’s why   1 year, 5 months ago · View

    It was really a tongue in cheek piece, don’t take it too seriously! I am simply saying Barbies can be detrimental to girls body image, just as every single woman in the media. It’s an image of unattainable ‘perfection’. In actual practice I will let my kids choose what they want to play with, this [...]

    Last week I made a somewhat precocious decision: at 22, with no prospect of getting married or pregnant in the near future, I decided that I will never buy my future daughter a Barbie. I am sure she will beg for one, and I will allow that real parents might say I don’t know what [...]

  • When someone is murdered, an investigation is launched. When a victim is paralyzed when mugged at gun point, no one asks why they didn’t scream or says they asked for it. When someone is robbed, the judge doesn’t tell the victims they should have shouted in protest against the violation of their home to prove [...]

  • Nicole Froio wrote a new blog post: Five feminist teachings in Parks and Recreation   1 year, 5 months ago · View

    Amy Poehler has created a brilliant feminist TV series and, more importantly, differential feminist models we can all look up to. Parks and Recreation is about a government employee who believes in change above anything else and her endeavours to change her hometown Pawnee, despite the stagnant pace of government action. Leslie Knope is the [...]

    “Right here, in this conference room,” said a woman in her early twenties to Leymah Gbowee, Nobel Peace prize winner. “Only around five or six women are black, among a hundred or so. As a black woman yourself, what do you think we should do about the exclusion of black women from spaces like this?” [...]
