  • Yekaterina commented on the blog post Is Slutwalk Advancing the Feminist Cause?   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    I can understand some of the concerns raised about this terminology, what it implies and most importantly, what kind of effect it has. As I was selectively ‘facebook-inviting’ people to the NYC Slutwalk event, I was contemplating what percentage of those invitees will look at this as some sort of crazy spring-break-like funtime and completely [...]

  • Yekaterina commented on the blog post A little Christmas misogyny   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    I’m sorry you and your mom had such a terrible Christmas family time. I wish I could suggest a way that you could try and change your family’s opinion, but honestly, it does not seem like there is anything that can be done here. From my experience, even very traditional, religious, misogynist, etc. people have [...]

  • Yekaterina wrote a new blog post: Former Israeli President convicted of rape, facing real jail time   3 years, 6 months ago · View

    Former Israeli president Moshe Katsav was convicted earlier this month of rape and sexual harassment of several employees, and can now get up to 16 years in prison for it. The conviction is seen as a very significant dent  in Israel’s male entitlement culture, as well as a victory for women’s rights groups and even the Israeli [...]

  • Yekaterina wrote a new blog post: Suprisingly, high heels are bad for your feet   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    This may not be a huge feminist issue of the decade, but I found it extremely comical and sad that “wearing high heels” made this msn health topics list of “Suprising” Unhealthy Habits. Not that the rest of the list is exactly rocket science, but this one is just amazing.  I wonder if they actually believe [...]

    Congratulations on your decision! the Quaker ceremony sounds really sweet, too. I hope everything goes well, including parental approval, and the like.

    Oh and I hope your fiance is looking for two engagement rings (though may be not, since you dont sound too thrilled about the idea of engagement jewelry)

  • Yekaterina wrote a new blog post: high school football player kicked off the team for pink cleats   3 years, 8 months ago · View

    Last month (October, breast cancer awareness month) many people, including NFL football players wore pink in support of breast cancer patients. In Mississippi, a high school football player wore pink cleats given to him by his great grandmother to practice *. Both his grandmother and great grandmother are breast cancer survivors, and he wore the shoes in [...]

  • Yekaterina commented on the blog post Is changing your name when you get married ever a feminist move?   3 years, 8 months ago · View

    I will not change my name if I get married – I do kind of like the idea of a “family name,” so may be I would be willing to take his last name as my middle name if he does the same with mine. The only situation in which I can foresee taking a [...]

    Thanks ferrgusfisk and Cambra! A little disappointed she wasn’t saying anything revelatory along the lines of “Mom, I snagged one of ‘em rich ones, just like you said I would!” But its nice to know anyway.

  • Yekaterina wrote a new blog post: What’s the Difference Between Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan?   3 years, 9 months ago · View

    Rebecca Macatee asks what is the difference between Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan that makes the media and the public view them so differently. Drum roll…

    Oh by the way. Be an angry feminist. Totally.

  • Yekaterina commented on the blog post “All Asses Are Not Created Equal”   3 years, 11 months ago · View

    Funny, but even as we (understandably) criticize insensitive advertising like this, we still manage to put some women down (this time, all on our own!) Bad, bad advertising, implying that some asses are better than others, and excluding all women size 6 and up! Enough of those “fairly shapeless,” “non-shapely” models. “If the models shown [...]

    Congratulations! All the best to Jessica and Layla, I hope they both recover and come home soon.

  • Yekaterina wrote a new blog post: Facebook’s latest attempt at gender equality is still male-centric   3 years, 11 months ago · View

    So after nearly half a decade, FB woke up to the fact that women use it, too. Now if you check your gender in your profile as “female” and do not have a profile picture, the default picture assigned to you by facebook will have a “girl” silhouette with shoulder-length hair. If your gender is [...]
