    Why is nobody commenting on how this commercial, in addition to being racist, is minimizing sexual assault?

  • Feminists familiar with the intersectionality of oppressive -isms probably know about Mikki Kendall, a.k.a. Karnythia. She blogs over at The Angry Black Woman, and Feministing linked to her blog discussing how feminists aren’t immune from engaging in -isms during the 2008 election. But there’s a new reason her name should be recognizable to all of us. [...]

    Actually, the Kansas school in question didn’t open their doors until 1997, which means that the issue has been on the books for 13 years.

    Oh, that’s incredibly difficult, and sad to read. I’m 36 weeks along, and the idea of having her come out at this point is terrifying enough. I can’t imagine what Jessica must be facing. I’ll keep both her and little Layla in my prayers. Whether 29 weeks or 40, I have no doubt we’re already [...]

    The continued gender policing of our country is par for the course, but there seems to be something especially deplorable in how the media has zoned in on Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and Angelina. I’ll address the underlying rhetoric of gender policing further into this comment, but has anyone else noticed that the same sources up in [...]

    No, I didn’t watch the video. I trust Jessica’s interpretation that the video talks about why PASS doesn’t exist. It was that assertion I was responding to. “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 [...]

    The real issue, when it comes down to the pro-choice versus anti-choice side, is the skewing of numbers. Pro-choice advocates would like to insist women who have negative reactions are rare, and those that do have them, have them as the result of slut-shaming and tactics designed to inspire irrevocable guilt. Anti-choice advocates would like [...]

    “Make sure to check out the vids we have up at the Video blog: a piece on racial profiling and a great spot on why post-abortion syndrome doesn’t exist.” Except that, for countless women here and abroad, post-abortion syndrome doesn’t exist. I understand why, as Feminists, we do everything possible to remove the emotion from [...]

  • tabloidscully wrote a new blog post: Defending Twilight: An Interesting Look at Fandoms   3 years, 9 months ago · View

    I made the mistake of posting the most recent Feministing article about Twilight on my Facebook. I characterize it as a mistake not because I think Twilight is an amazing franchise above criticism, but because I earnestly believed folks would be interested in what Jos had to say, and her criticism of the series. I was wrong. In [...]
