• You only don’t see it as a feminist issue because you don’t know anything about how the War on Drugs affects the lives of women. I remember when women were being forced to give birth while shackled in the 90s (more than half of US states still do this today)… when marginalized (read: poor, people [...]

    Robert, Did you watch the whole testimony? Because, while, at one point, she did ask ‘why is this still relevant,’ it wasn’t about the simple phone call comment, it was about the continued implication that, somehow the State Department was ‘covering something up.’ With regards to the telephone call question, she stated that her first [...]

    Brüno, I’m not sure what point you’re making. Are you trying to say that Ron Paul is a better candidate than Obama? If so, I have three points with which to start. First off, since this is a feminist website, after all, let’s begin with his unequicoval opposition to reproductive rights for women . He claims (a) [...]

    Honestly, I was set up there, but… certain herbs (like basil), you can grow in a windowsill or even indoors. Shoot, I’ve got a neighbor who’s got all of her windows (at least the ones on the street) covered with plant life. Unfortunately, I don’t get a lot of sun in my apartment, but I [...]

    Well, I’m glad to hear that my comments didn’t come off as denigrating. I really feel like it’s way too easy to dismiss people’s experience in electronic media and I tend to be pretty arrogant and full of it in real life, lol. Also, I’m glad to hear you don’t have to make it work [...]

    Wow. My grammar is atrocious in comments. Is it any better in the post?

    Also, I want to be clear that I responded a bit to your comment in the other post and I used the pronoun “you.” I am really trying to avoid the personal garbage and want to be clear that it was more of stand in for “one,” not directed at you, personally. You’ll see if [...]

    Lissla, Thanks for the response and I think you’re right. Some of this stuff just gets on my nerves and I can paint an overly broad picture of who puts forth what arguments. Now, online, it’s really impossible to tell what someone’s background is online, so I’m mainly going off the kinds of folks who’ve [...]

    I was browsing Feministing and read an article about misogynist advertising promoting dairy and, well, it brought up a number of things for me, not just about the ad itself and the specious nature of its claims about health and comfort, but about the ways we have conversations around diet, especially when ethics get involved. Let’s start [...]

    Jennifer, The shackles are restraints… because the women are prisoners… I’m not sure what you think shackles are, but think handcuffs. It’s not a “comfort” thing, it’s a dehumanizing thing… maybe there’s some vagueness because the sentence didn’t mention that this bill relates to treatment of pregnant women in penal institutions. On OBL, I’d be [...]

    So, do you believe that the gender wage gap is simply merit-based? I’m kind of at a loss, here. First off, because “positive promotion” is not a term I’m familiar with, though it seems that you’re taking issue with Title 9 and affirmative action and the like. I’m curious as to how you hold employers [...]
