Sexual Assault or Lovers’ Quarrel?
sluthaditcoming: naomiwaxman: Yesterday, I wrote about the Washington Examiner’s characterization of Miss D.C. 2009 Jen Corey’s sexual assault as a “bar fight.” Actually, a man sexually assaulted Corey, and she defended herself physically in order to protect herself from further attack. Today, Amanda Marcotte filed a helpful post identifying how media outlets routinely describe assaults against...

revolutionqueergrrrlstyle: … I read about this the other day & it truly angered me. “You’re So Gay” & “I Kissed A Girl” apparently doesn’t qualify as offensive to Perry. Are you fucking kidding me? It’s alright to encourage queer stereotyping & fake lesbianism for male approval, but…

No Sex Please, We’re Middle Class →
stfuconservatives: Today’s NY Times op-ed by Camille Paglia manages to be sexist, racist, and classist all at once. It’s one of the most condescending things I’ve read in a while. Here’s why Americans aren’t having sex, she says: women. God damn women with their god damn equality had to ruin sex for everyone: In the discreet white-collar realm, men and women are interchangeable, doing the...

stfuconservatives: tart-tart: southpol: See, it’s a Gay Pride parade. In Arkansas. And some folks either don’t understand or pretend not to understand that the point of the parade is to express how unashamed we are of LGBT people and choices. How it’s not something we need to hide from public view, and certainly not from the eyes of children. The protests have been organized by the Ameircan...
On rape and men (Oh yes, I'm going there)
thepeacockangel: fearknot: brave-slut: littlelightx: Yes, we’ve hit one of those times. Something has been building, and it has to come out. There is a point in discussions of rape, when the discussion turns from the particular to the systemic, when the idea that, for example, many cultures have a value system that makes men believe they are fundamentally entitled to women’s bodies (or...

Also, I am too indignant to work now so I may as well go home sick. Well, guess what, Stepford Steinem Feminists? We don’t care if you don’t consider us a part of your cultish club. You see, we have minds of our own. And, unlike you, we respect women and...
