    I heard this clip yesterday and found it so disheartening. I engage in feminist politics precisely because I find it a much more hopeful vision of how the future can/could be than the vision of anti-feminists and those committed to oppositional gender essentialism. To dismiss all of the amazing, creative, future-building things that feminist men [...]

    Stupid headlines like this irritate the hell out of me: “Report: Boy-heavy China Faces Impending Crime Spike.” This was a story in the Boston Metro (free transit newspaper) today that my housemate and I noticed while riding the T out to Harvard Square.

    The "no shit" headline of the week award goes to National Public Radio for this story :

    Not that I expect anything different from Pope Benedict, but c’mon dude . It would be nice if around the Christmas holidays you could show a little more compassion and demonstrate that you’re not completely out of touch with real-world problems. But no .
