There are a lot of fucking ignorant misconceptions surrounding feminism, one of which is the idea that feminists are often unable to marry (which is why they are feminists) or that being a feminist will lead to divorce. Firstly, feminists do marry (if they want to). I’m married, and I’m married to a male feminist. … Continue reading Does Feminism Lead To Divorce?
He’s five and I’m eight, You make us toast cut into pretty shapes, Triangles, rectangles, and random squares; The crusts we save to feed the ducks, You warn us: “The geese, beware – ” But Charlie never had much luck. I’m sitting here and I don’t know what to write, Not now that you … Continue reading Random Squares
It’s just a joke. I hear those words, that same phrase, over and over again. Adam Goodes, an Aboriginal man and an AFL footballer, compared to Harambe. Come on, laugh. It’s just a joke. It's not like anything serious ever happens to Aboriginal people. It's not like Pauline Hanson, xenophobic racist, and unfortunately leader of Australia's … Continue reading It’s Just A Joke
Yesterday, I heard white Republicans say they didn’t find anything remotely racist about Donald Trump’s “Go back where they came from” statement. Part of their defense was that they have black friends so they, like Trump, can’t be racist.
I propose a challenge for these non-racist white Republicans with “black friends.” Go up to one of your “black friends” and say, “Go back to where you came from.” Let me know how that works out. Let me know if they remain your friends. Let me know if you acquire any injuries and the hospital where you’ll be staying where I don’t send flowers.
Now, you may not find Trump’s comments racist, but federal law does. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has written specific rules to protect people from discrimination from racist assholes like Trump supporters. On its website (scroll to Harassment Based on National Origin), the commission…

For some inexplicable reason, I am genuinely surprised by the large amount of people who say that feminism isn’t needed because sexism and misogyny doesn’t exist. Often, the person saying this (but not always – I’m surprised with how many women also think this way) is a white, middle class (at least), straight, cis man. … Continue reading Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil
I’m sure you, like me (assuming you use any form of social media) have, at some point, come across a meme (of varying descriptions) where the creator states she’s not like other girls. She may state that, unlike other girls, she’s into sport. Really? That makes you “unlike other girls”? When I was in high … Continue reading Not Like Other Girls
Recently, I shared
a cartoon by my friend, Clay, about the
growing attacks on women’s reproductive rights by individual states. I promised to share the Supreme Court’s
contact info in my brief introduction to his post.
After hours & days of searching (OK, so it was a 30
second Google search), I found it.
What’s even better, I found an article claiming to know how Supreme Court justices prefer you
The article comes from a site called Legal Beagle. The website has posts in various areas of
U.S. law that people with law training review, even if they don’t write them
I want you to have the website’s credentials. You want to make an informed decision on
whether it’s trustworthy or not.
I’m going to give a brief (as brief as I can manage,
anyways) summary of the article. I also
