  • You say:

    Much more than being socialized male, I was socialized to put other’s needs about my body and identity ahead of my own.

    Then You say:

    This doesn’t mean queer cis women and gender non-conforming female assigned folks can’t fuck trans men, but then they owe it to these guys to reframe their sexuality [...]

    Um did you read the Stephen King article? In the first two paragraphs is has two fat phobic slurs. I agree that the rich should pay more in taxes but do we need to fat-shame Chris Christie to make that point. Not cool, Feministing, Not Cool.

    This story makes no sense to me at all. First let me say that I do think that ICE really screwed up here. However, other than the quote about Jakadrien having to work all day and being tired it doesn’t say that she tried to either convince ICE or the Colombian Government that she was [...]

    You just know that there is mandatory prayer after sex at the Santorum house. Like “AAAAaaaaaaaaahmen!”

    This post is in response to the main blog post : As I and a few others commented the post and the criticism kind of miss the mark on the struggles of women in engineering. Just as Feministing wouldn’t have a post written about one groups struggle be written by a person that has isn’t even involved [...]

    May I recommend Geek Feminism . It has a large focus on women in STEM but also women gamers (which I am not, but it is interesting to hear about). I am so glad I found it.

    Ah I also agree with the Swedish Model of focusing criticism on people buying sex not people selling sex.

    I was in Thailand this last Spring and I traveled with two guy friends, we are all in our 20′s. Me had an ongoing argument/debate/discussion about prostitution in Thailand and I bought a book at an English Bookstore in Phuket, “Sex Slaves” by Louise Brown (2001) and I am about 3/4 of the way through [...]

    Many, Many Churches Do not see their leaders as God’s infallible representative on earth. And even in faiths that do traditionally see their leader as God’s rep doesn’t mean that all followers agree with that belief. But please keep showing your ignorance by generalizing all faiths and all followers. Also, there are nations where citizen’s [...]

    SamBarge, Let me give you an example, Let’s say you’re a citizen of a country that provides no rights to women. Okay, You country actively persecutes women and supports systems where women are abused. How do you expect me to perceive you nation and it’s citizens? I support you in your struggle for change. I [...]

    I personally would not have minded if he had let unemployment run out and the tax cuts expire. I have a job, enough to live on, no debt, and no family. But a lot of people have no job, a family and barely enough to live on so I think letting them suffer so we [...]

    Full disclosure: I am a life long member of the United Methodist Church (UMC) and I think that United methodist women is one of the greatest feminist and humanitarian organization on the planet. I also lived for 2 years in Utah. I take issue with the idea that “the faith” is an actor, like when [...]

    I guess everyone says this…. but let me start by saying I am really not a reality TV show watcher.  I have however been recently fascinated by True Beauty , first because I love Carson Kressley and second because I really hate how mean people are on reality TV and I like seeing people get laid into for [...]

    I live in a dorm.  I am a graduate student attending a school in an extremely expensive city on an island so housing is extremely, extremely expensive.  Add on cost of food and how little graduate research assistances get paid, the dorm was my best option.  My dorm is not part of the college; it is [...]
