  • Victoria wrote a new blog post: Some good compilation of 2012 reading lists   1 year, 8 months ago · View

    Originally posted at Female Impersonator Yes, I am just as sick of reading all of those “best of” or “looking back” lists about 2012 too. And yes, I am also just as prone as you to get sucked in to their bullet-pointed seduction techniques. I figured as long as I am reading a ridiculous number of [...]

    Originally posted at Female Impersonator I came across a gif this morning that featured this quote from Ellen DeGeneres, “Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else’s expense. And I find that that’s just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be [...]

  • Victoria commented on the blog post BREAKING: Health care law upheld!   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    Jos- For the record, I am totally celebrating the decision with you. However, I think that while Paul is wrong in saying that the ACA is unconstitutional, that does not mean that he is wrong in saying that being constitutional does not=being declared by the Supreme Court to be so. I blogged about that here. [...]

    Originally posted at Female Impersonator I love this piece over at Jezebel. In it, Dodai Stewart comments on an interview with Velvet d’Amour, a plus-sized actress, model and photographer. Some of my favorite quotes by d’Amour that are mentioned in the Jezebel piece are:

    Fleshy, curvy women have been relegated to men’s magazines, whilst edgy editorial fashion in [...]

  • Victoria wrote a new blog post: Self Esteem and Street Harassment   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    Originally posted at Female Impersonator Mandy van Deven over at the Bitch Magazine blog brought up a problem about the way some self-proclaimed feminists judge people (usually women) who are flattered by street harassment that I have always felt but never articulated. Namely, that sitting in judgement of the victim of street harassment’s reaction to their harassment [...]

    Originally posted at Female Impersonator As we have said before , rape on college campuses is a huge issue that needs to be better addressed. It looks like the proposed SaVE Act may be a step in the right direction.

    Laura and Jenny- I think I agree that Kate Middleton should in no way be seen as an example of modern feminism. However…. pdx- I DO think that this represents a more progressive move for the royal family. Kate is the first future princess to hold an advanced degree and is a “commoner,” which makes [...]

    Luckily the Senate voted down the ridiculous bill passed by the House of Representatives that would have cut all federal funding for Planned Parenthood. But women’s health advocates can’t celebrate just yet.
    “As the negotiations for the spending bill continue, it’s clear that social conservatives want to ban funding for Planned Parenthood in future spending (negotiations),” said [...]

    Originally posted at Female Impersonator This made my day.

    Yeah, you read that right: Men’s Health magazine, full of “how to have better sex” and “how to lose the belly fat!” advice for men, has a blog for men about feminism. This unequivocally rocks for three reasons. First, it’s a sign that the feminist blogosphere has moved into [...]
