GataAgressiva411 & Male Violence
Christmas Day, 2012. GataAgressiva411 to OTHER WHITE FEMINIST: Thank you for sharing this article with me. I read it, and I agree with what’s said here. As for the CT shootings, I’m restricting the amount of energy I give that incident because people of color are suffering from regular casualities such as these each and every day, in different ways. I cannot and will not […]
One Down, How Many to Go?
WordPress has apparently caved to trans demands to censor trans-critical blogs. The most recent casualty is mansplaintrainsplain, a brilliant blog that quoted verbatim the woman-hating words Men’s Rights and Trans Activists say to and about Women. Apparently, it’s ok for Men’s Rights and Trans Rights Activists to say Women-hating words to Women, it’s not ok […]
Tell Me Again How Women Are “Equal”
Here’s Republican State Representative Cathrynn N. Brown of New Mexico. The NRA and the Right to Life People love her. And she loves them back!
If you repeat a lie often enough, does it become true?
Americans gave up the idea-or tried to, or pretended to-that there are certain characteristics and qualities that are essentially black and essentially white a long time ago. At the very least we can say that it would be considered wildly offensive and thoroughly idiotic to articulate ideas like that now. Yet somehow we don’t think […]
What About The Men?
I am an avid reader of your blogs (I think I sent you a FB message once saying something to the effect of “keep fighting the good fight”). I was wondering if you might write up a post some day on how lay men who are not part of this particular struggle can be allies […]
GUEST POST: You Are Next
First they came for Janice Raymond and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t an academic. Then they came for Mary Daly and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a lesbian. Then they came for Norah Vincent and I didn’t speak out because I didn’t even read her book. Then they came for Lierre […]
For Every One of Us You Silence, 100 More Will Rise to Take Her Place
I received the following (unsolicted) email from Gallus Mag at GenderTrender, which I present unedited: “As some of you may know, my posting access to my GenderTrender wordpress.com blog was suspended at the end of the business day on Friday January 18. My last post, on Friday morning, was a collection of screen caps: a […]
Straight Man Says Women “Bad” For Knowing Sex =//= Gender
Dan Solomon is a “straight, white cisgender man” from Texas who has things to say about Women like Suzanne Moore and Julie Burchill who dare to (1) notice that transwomen are men and 2) have the guts to speak out about it. Dan wants you to know that he’s got the backs of his fellow Men, […]
Oh, Yes, “Creating Change”
You might recall that last year, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force waited until the last possible moment to remember that L in NGLTF stands for Lesbians. As a result of pressure put on NGLTF by Lesbian activists, NGLTF begrudgingly allowed Lesbians to have our own caucus for actual lesbians (that is, women-born-women, not […]
