Truth Takes Time – a QueerFemme Translady Story

This animated short tells the story of a young trans girl who other people won’t let be a girl, and her journey to living on her own terms. A warning that it’s a tear jerker – Ellie Krnich’s picture book animation style brings me right back to childhood. The short is a personal, intimate story that I and a lot of other folks can relate to. Ellie’s bio and a transcript are after the jump.

Quick hit: Moving forward from past reproductive injustices against black women

Dr. Vanessa Cullins (Vice President for External Medical Affairs at PPFA) and Eleanor Hinton Hoytt (Black Women’s Health Imperative President and CEO, featured in the video above) have co-authored an important piece on The Grio framing recent progress in civil and women’s rights in proper historical context which includes reproductive injustice against women of color. This topic is especially timely because of recent revelations by the Israeli government that Ethiopian women were coerced into accepting long-acting birth control shots, likely Depo-Provera. Cullins and Hoytt write (all emphasis mine):

“As we reflect on how this progress was born from injustice, we are reminded of the many black women whose lives or deeds led the way and changed history. Fannie Lou ...

Viral misogyny alert: “The Women of LA”

Ugh. The Nice Guys of OKCupid “DJ Lubel”–the guy behind the Murray Hill video from 2009–has released a new spoof music video, “The Women of LA,” complaining about how bitchy women won’t provide the sex he and his friends deserve. The clip is so awful for so many reasons that I don’t know how to levy a real critique, but here are some highlights:

The entire video is based on the premise that women owe men sex, and that if a guy isn’t getting laid, it’s obviously because of the ladies’ flaws, rather than his own. We’ve been over this before. Despite the DJ’s desperation to convince one woman to sleep with him, he expresses ...

New Planned Parenthood campaign “Not in Her Shoes” seeks to go beyond ‘pro-life’ and ‘pro-choice’ labels [Video]

Over the weekend we highlighted new polls which show that Americans are dissatisfied with the labels “pro-life” and “pro-choice” and reported that Parenthood hopes to move beyond them in the future. Lots of smart people had interesting takes on this including Anna North at Buzzfeed and Amanda Marcotte on Slate.

If you’re like me, you assumed “the future” meant sometime in a distant fuzzy world, but in fact Planned Parenthood, being that fast-moving superstar that it is, released a new video today “Not in Her Shoes” that utilizes this new “post-label” strategy and better mimics ways in which the organization believes that Americans — especially young people — think and talk about abortion today.

Here at Feministing we ...
