Today I am thinking of women too often ignored or even hurt by the feminist movement. Trans* women, women of color, disabled women, fat women, queer women, elderly women, poor women, women in prison, women who are sex workers, women who are undocumented, women who are more than one of the above. Today is your day, too. I celebrate you and your strengths.
“A woman’s worst nightmare? That’s pretty easy. Novelist Margaret Atwood writes that when she asked a male friend why men feel threatened by women, he answered, “They are afraid women will laugh at them.” When she asked a group of women why they feel threatened by men, they said, “We’re afraid of being killed.””—
This reminds me of a discussion we had in school, and one girl was talking about living in fear of her safety because she is a girl, and this guy chimed in and was all “It’s hard for guys too! I’m so awkward around girls! It’s embarrassing!” Yeah, not the same thing, exactly?
This reminds me of an article about online (heterosexual) dating that I read a while ago. It listed men’s and women’s worst fears about meeting someone from online. The highest ranked fear that men had was that their date would be fat, whereas the highest ranked fear that women had was that their date would turn out to be violent and kill them.
the two things frida kahlo hated most were white people and capitalism so I mean I’m not going to presume to speak for her but I find it hard to believe that she’d be down with you buying cameo-style earrings of her face from some riot!grrl etsy shop in order to earn feminist points
Sponsors of GMO labeling bill predict victory over Monsanto. Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal of Manhattan, and her co-sponsor, Senator Ken LaValle of Suffolk, blamed agribusiness giant Monsanto for lobbying against the bill, which was introduced last year, but never passed out of committee. They’re confident they can get it through this year. But they need our help. WE THE PEOPLE: LET’S GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD, NEW YORK. LET’S DO IT!
