  • Caitlin wrote a new blog post: Coping With The Fact That I’m A Feminist   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    There comes a time in every young Feminist’s life, male or female…yes, male Feminists exist, when they have to finally take a bullet and admit to themselves that they are, indeed, actually a Feminist. I’m kind of joking, but if you start to make a list, which I’ve done, of all of the social/cultural factors [...]

    What an incredibly beautiful video!

  • Caitlin commented on the blog post What is wrong with people? Hate speech edition   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    I remind myself that hate speech comes out of a place of extreme ignorance and misunderstanding. I can only try to imagine what this girl is going through after posting this disgusting video on the internet, but perhaps this experience may teach her to be a bit more compassionate and open minded. Or perhaps the [...]

  • Caitlin commented on the blog post Desperately Seeking Sterilization: the politics of privilege   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    What a horrible experience to go through. I am no authority on this subject, but it does seem clear that there is some targeting of women as the pre-destined vehicles for birth going on in our country, hello conservative mission. That being said, the comments about doctors fearing prosecution seem valid, as well as the [...]

  • Caitlin commented on the blog post The conundrum of a skilled feminist response to fratastic misogyny   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    One other point. Misogyny is incredibly dehumanizing to heterosexual men as it makes them incapable of engaging in any sort of multi-level relationship with women. I’m not saying this to garner pity for these men, they are clearly being assholes, but perhaps part of the cultural solution to this issue lays in showing men, and [...]

    I feel uncomfortable with the gendering in this discussion due to the fact that the offensive party in the above article is male. It should be acknowledged that misogyny is a culture perpetuated and internalized by both men and women. In order to combat this culture we have to root it out in ourselves and [...]

    That is totally great advice! As a woman, whenever I’ve tried to show disapproval for this type of behavior I immediately get written off, usually with the term “feminist” which to these type of people usually means they feel no need to listen to my opinion. I can imagine that criticism of this behavior would [...]

  • Caitlin commented on the blog post Men’s stake in reproductive justice   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    Really interesting discussion. I am glad to see that there are some male voices present as I am sure it can be kind of intimidating at times to voice an opinion on a feminist site. On the topic of unwilling father’s and paying child support I just wanted to point out that everybody knows that [...]

    Here’s hoping they disbar this judge. God! Anytime it gets to the question of what the woman was wearing you know its all going downhill from there!

  • Caitlin commented on the blog post Death, taxes, heartbreak   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    Thank you for your beautiful post! It can be really hard to reflect on the grief of others when grief always feels so intensely personal. I had my heartbroken about a year and a half ago and I think I am only now coming out of it, but during that period of time I met [...]
