    “Another comment that bothered me was a peer in my class believed that both the girl and boy should be charged with something. I quickly told her that you can’t be charged with rape. The girl was old enough to drink which means that there is absolutely no fault. ” …I think this wasn’t worded [...]

    I’m guessing the lesson is ‘Don’t try and walk into giant sculptures of vagina’s unless you know how to get out the way you got in.’

    I actually got this talk from my manager at work — we’ve apparently been apologizing “too much” to our customers because, in his words “We’re making them a great product that will take a few minutes to cook. We shouldn’t be sorry about that.” Here’s the catch — my boss (and myself) are privileged, upper-class, [...]

    To answer your question, Katie: No — they aren’t planning to adopt any kids, because it would infringe on their right to have the freedom to choose to adopt children.

    (So, let the hypocrisy begin!)

  • Yeah — go, Willis, for trying to do something and not being condescending. That’s cool!

  • Jacqueline Hentzen commented on the blog post Ladies, you should probably masturbate more   3 months, 2 weeks ago · View

    How were the surveyors defining ‘masturbation’? Any kind of sexual activity that didn’t involve another party? Penetration? A complete orgasm? The intention behind the action? Those kinds of questions aren’t only scientifically important, but would help get a sense of how women define masturbation because of the screwed-up ideal that society gives us (aka masturbation [...]

    …Dude? Did you THINK before posting that? Or is there some nuance that I’m not picking up on? Because, from my perspective, I read that reply and see ‘Yeah, but you never know how many women are just making it up when they accuse men of raping them, so shouldn’t you give those poor accused [...]

    I never understood the ‘Giving away pieces of yourself’ thing — blame the Aspergers, if you want, but my train of thought was always ‘Well, if I can give that away, isn’t that a GOOD thing? If you give away money or possessions, that’s thought of as charity, so giving away ‘pieces’ of yourself to [...]

  • Of all anime to talk about with feminist/sexist themes to point out you chose Utena, Penguindrum, Kill la Kill and Madoka Magica? That’s… that’s ABSURD cherry-picking, but I shouldn’t complain — anime is SO huge in swathe and influence that you really need to give each individual series/franchise an individual look. I mean, you wanna [...]

    What, no love for Amy Tan (Joy Luck Club, one of the most famous books with female protagonists ever written?) She’s got a lot of books, too by the way — her most recent one was ‘The Valley of Amazement”

    Also look up Lisa See, Joanne Harris, and Jhumba Lahiri.

  • Jacqueline Hentzen commented on the blog post How to Be a Short-Haired Female   8 months, 1 week ago · View

    Um… am I missing something? Is this supposed to be satirical? Mocking the articles that focus on women’s beauty and style? Because, if it isn’t, it seems a little… um… not… post-worthy… for feministing? Just sayin’.

  • PEOPLE! Maybe focus more on the intent of the article — that is, calling out Bill O’Reilly for being an awful excuse for a human being who truly, sincerely believes his disgusting, transphobic words — instead of the feminist-allied guy, whom is standing up for trans-rights, writing the article accidentally mixing up ‘Trans-boy’ and ‘trans-girl’?

  • I’ve noticed actually a similar trend with men — hear me out — in that when two men have a particularly close friendship, they’re either pigeonholed as ‘gay’ or expected to partake in some pretty disgusting displays to prove that they’re ‘still men’. And, really, I think it all comes from the same source — [...]

    Watch it, there — your privilege is showing (and yes, this is coming from someone else who’s privilege shows from time to time, so that’s saying something) The thing about always smiling, always putting on a happy face for customers is that, after a while, you start smiling like this: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121113171624/zimwiki/images/e/e0/NICK.png And, for some reason, [...]

    How these are supposed to be “Acts of Service” to women, I MIGHT have an idea — the idea that she’s making him go through what SHE probably has to do to be considered conventionally appropriate/attractive.

    Even more outrageous (-ly stupid): Where’d she get the ’5 months’ from? If you visit the emergency room for a rape kit, it’s (hopefully — I know the stigma and shock can be deterrents) within 24 hours. What idiot thinks that a rape victim would go into the emergency room FIVE MONTHS after the fact? [...]

    Oh, wait — he was talking about the HBO TELEVISION spin-off? Oh, well then, obviously it’s racist! If HBO gets their hands on any good book and makes it a TV series, of course they’re going to fuck it up with racism and sexism abounding. They already changed the relationship between Dany and Khal Drogo [...]

    First, allow me a cheap shot and a nitpick at the post that was included in the Weekly Feminist Reader: Daenerys being like a liberal white woman, but being compared to Laura Bush?  Um… are we thinking the same Laura Bush?  Wife of least-popular-president George W Bush, very conservative, THAT Laura Bush?  Calling her a [...]

  • About the article in general, I’m sorry to be the lone dissenter, but I can’t be offended by Salmon’s position that women bloggers are happier — especially given that most women bloggers that I’ve seen are feminists and activists. After seeing so much shit about how activism and women’s rights has made women ‘unhappy’ (Looking [...]
