    I’m really glad to see this here. I have hopes that Feministing will get better on addressing issues with disability. I have a disabling mental illness and have almost stopped coming to the site because of the alienation I’ve felt, particularly when I see terms such as ‘nut jobs’ or talk of how committing suicide [...]

    I was hoping Feministing would cover this story. Alicia Beltran, a pregnant Wisconsin woman told her doctor in a prenatal care visit about her prior use of painkillers and her efforts to stop taking painkillers on her own. She was then arrested and brought into court, in her initial court appearance she didn’t have an [...]

    This was a great and interesting interview. Zerlina, I’m stunned by your bravery and so thankful and so sorry you had to go through that.

    I see some similarity with the arguments made here and the ones made today. In particular, the women don’t want it/don’t care and the idea that it promotes competition with men instead of cooperation.

    Ugh. Huff Post is reporting that he compared Trayvon Martin to the Columbine gunmen. I am livid.

    Thank you. I understood that you probably were not responding to me specifically, but since you mentioned my name I wanted to clarify!

  • natasha commented on the blog post Quick Hit: Racist tweeps demand White History Month   1 year, 7 months ago · View

    I didn’t say the comment “wasn’t so bad”. I don’t agree with the White History Month as I said, and I don’t think it makes the entire comment okay. I wasn’t aware of these heritage months, so thanks for that info. At the same time, I feel it’s a bit like Women’s History Month, which [...]

  • natasha commented on the blog post Quick Hit: Racist tweeps demand White History Month   1 year, 7 months ago · View

    I actually partially agree with one of these tweets. Not the white history month, but the question of history months for people of other non-white races. So much of the discourse on race is focused on black and white in America and that’s an important issue and given the country’s history it makes sense that [...]

    Unfortunately some workplaces ban discussion of salaries amongst coworkers, so there can be punishment for attempting to find out what your colleagues are making.

  • I’ll spend my time advocating for an end to the draft instead.

  • natasha commented on the blog post Feminism is totally cool with Beyoncé posing in her underwear   1 year, 8 months ago · View

    Beyonce has said she’s ‘a feminist, in a way.’ So she has self-identified, at least a little. While I agree that we shouldn’t slut-shame and I have no problem with Beyonce’s cover, I am a little troubled by some of the defense here. Specifically: “It’s one thing to bemoan the fact the fact that the [...]

    I did kind of read it that way, yeah. But I get what you’re saying now.

  • natasha commented on the blog post Quick Hit: Gaslighting, explained in ‘Clueless’-themed GIFs   1 year, 8 months ago · View

    Gas-lighting exists, regardless of your own personal experiences.

  • natasha commented on the blog post Elsewhere on the Interwebs   1 year, 8 months ago · View

    I’m not really sure where to put this so I apologize for going off-topic on this post. I’ve been noticing some comments that to me read as anti-feminist, mra supporting, and victim-blaming and yet Feministing has published them. I understand that some comments slip through the cracks and that’s why the community can report comments, [...]

    Happy Birthday Chloe, I always love reading your articles here!

  • natasha commented on the blog post Brave responses to the Sandy Hook shooting   1 year, 9 months ago · View

    I am disappointed that Feministing would use the term ‘nut jobs’ in an article. Phrases like this only serve to further the stigma against the mentally ill. I don’t believe that is intentional on your part, it is very common for people to use words like these along with ‘psycho’ or ‘crazy’, and I myself [...]

  • natasha commented on the blog post Watch this new documentary on the racist, ineffective war on drugs   1 year, 9 months ago · View

    I respect that you have a different opinion, but I think most of us here would consider the war on drugs a feminist issue. As it says in the post, the war on drugs is racist. People of color are disproportionately arrested and convicted for drug offenses, in addition to being given longer sentences. Being [...]

  • Forgot to add this: a big part of why the Democrats were so successful retaining the Senate was because of the offensive things so many Republicans had been saying about rape and abortion.

  • Republicans retained control of the house, and Democrats retained control of the Senate. That has generally been considered a big win for the Democrats because a few months ago, it didn’t seem possible for them to do so in part because many more Democrat Senate seats were up for grabs than Republican seats. Not only [...]

    A lot of feminists have this same problem. I think it really just depends on you. What do you consider to be deal breakers in your relationship? I, personally, can understand someone not being very informed about sexism or feminism, but if a guy doesn’t respect me as an equal, then that’s a deal breaker. [...]
