Photo of the Day: #FergusonOctober

The Weekend of Resistance in the Ferguson area culminated in an overnight march and sit-in at St. Louis University lasting until the early morning hours today. Hundreds of protestors, including relatives of Vonderrit D. Myers Jr., the black teenager killed by an off-duty police officer last week, joined the march, which included playing hopscotch, jumping rope, and tossing footballs in the streets. Earlier, 17 protestors were arrested at a peaceful sit-in at a gas station. More acts of civil disobedience are planned throughout the day, as organizers take a cue from North Carolina’s Moral Mondays protests. Follow #FergusonOctober and #OccupySLU for updates.

Photo of the Day: What kind of guy thinks rape is like bike theft?

Yesterday’s Quote of the Day was a priceless gem from a Stanford student who told Bloomberg that women need to protect themselves from rape by staying sober, etc., just like people should lock up your bikes. You know. Because that’s an accurate analogy.

So who is the type of person who thinks women should find a U-lock for their bodies?

My friend Marybeth Seitz-Brown, a Students Active for Ending Rape board member, thought she’d Google the guy. And here’s what she found (Screenshot of the Day?) from his Stanford Daily writer profile:

Photo of the Day: Attack of the giant vagina!

This qualifies as Important Feminist News because I’m pretty sure a man-eating vagina that entraps innocent men is every MRA’s recurring nightmare. And it actually happened to this poor US exchange student in Tübingen, Germany.

It took 22 firefighters to get the kid out of Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara’s giant sculpture. There’s a lesson here somewhere.

Photo of the Day: Brown grads protest campus violence

I’m all about Brown University feminists these days. Last week we gave a Friday Feminist Fuck Yeah to campus mag Bluestockings for their awesome anti-violence — and now you have to see photos from Brown graduation this past weekend. Students used what looks like red tape to mark IX on their graduation caps as a reminder of the promise of Title IX: education unhindered by violence or harassment. This image was taken by Lydia Y.

Photos of the Day: “A celebration of those who choose to exist outside of the binary”

I’m loving this portrait series by photographer Meg Allen exploring “the butch aesthetic, identity and presentation of female masculinity” today. The project began with photos of her friends in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, and Allen describes her motivation like this:

It is a celebration of those who choose to exist and identify outside of the binary; who still get he’d and she’d differently throughout the day; who get called-out in bathrooms and eyed suspiciously at the airport; who have invented names for themselves as parents because “Mom” nor “Dad” feels quite right; and who will generally expect that stare from the gender police trying to figure out if they are “a boy or a girl”. It is an homage ...
