Gimmie Some Feminism!: Does Pink Hurt Girls? →
I don’t think its that we should worry about the color pink… I think its we should be worried about the lack of other options available to young girls. For me, pink is pink haha its a color. If someones favorite color is pink then great. But I feel we push on the color of pink too much. Along with the color pink there is the view of femininity, and with our society, femininity is viewed...

Obama admin. appoints self-proclaimed 'proud... →
From Dan Savage via The Stranger: A Thought Experiment: A scientist describes himself as a “proud white supremacist” or a “proud anti-semite” or a “proud sexist.” What are the odds that Barack Obama would appoint that guy to “an elite scientific panel”? Nonexistent. But Obama just appointed Jonathan I. Katz—a man describes himself as a proud...

The Lantern - Procedure at home better than... →
I wish that people would take into account that all trauma isn’t physical. In fact, I think this procedure, while admittedly wildly more humane, still amounts to a major abuse. Imagine you are a girl in your early teens and your father takes you to your trusted neighborhood doctor who you’ve been seeing since you were very young. You don’t know why you’re going to the...

http://www.andrewtobias.com/newcolumns/000504.html Sunday, April 30, 2000 By SHARON UNDERWOOD For the Valley News (White River Junction, VT) Many letters have been sent to the Valley News concerning the homosexual menace in Vermont. I am the mother of a gay son and I’ve taken enough from you good people. I’m tired of your foolish rhetoric about the “homosexual agenda” and your allegations...

More reasons to hate Joe Lieberman and Obama... →
First of all, FUCK YOU Joe Lieberman… Jesus christ why do the dems still let you caucus with them?! Second, Obama, as the article aptly points out a lot of progressives campaigned hard for you and put a lot of hope in the fact that you wouldn’t fuck them… but you seem hell bent on doing just that. Sure you’ve been fucking us queers the whole time but now you’re...

Lesbians unqualified to serve on SCOTUS →
But really, conservatives think that no one other than rich white christian men are qualified to do anything. I really didn’t take them long to start claiming that she’s a lesbian. While part of me wants to see a queer justice I think in this case I’d like her to be like, “Actually, I love the cock; I have just made my career a priority, ASSHATS!”
Gay Rights Groups →
I couldn’t agree more with the sentiment in this post. The HRC is a worthless organization that is doing little if anything for queer people… at best its helping white gay men and no one else… remember when they stabbed trans people in the back on ENDA? I donate to the ACLU with the extra money I have and plan to donate to Lambda Legal in the future. Never will the HRC get any...

More on this FGM thing… I really liked this quote: “There are countries in the world that allow wife beating, slavery and child abuse, but we don’t allow people to practice those customs in this country. We don’t let people have slavery a little bit because they’re going to do it anyway, or beat their wives a little bit because they’re going to do it anyway.” Really, this shit is crazy....
Is Outing a Rapist OK? →
I totally agree with the three points made in favor of outing rapists on facebook (or anywhere else for that matter) but I disagree with the points made condemning this action. Frankly, almost no rapists go to jail. The criminal justice system in this country has failed women and continues to fail women and there seems to be no end in sight for the failure… so I say take matters into your...

File this one under completely ridiculous… when exactly does hacking off a girl’s clit not cause “physical or psychological harm?” I’m going to go ahead and say never. This is a barbaric procedure meant to give men power over women by removing her ability to enjoy sex. This makes me so angry… this is a no brainer… just say you oppose it! Do not give it...

Day Of Prayer Becomes Culture War Skirmish →

Religion in the workplace
It received an email this morning from a co-worker inviting us all to some sort of “National Prayer Day.” This isn’t the first time that she’s sent out emails to everyone in the office about some sort of religious event and these emails always infuriate me. You are welcome to have your religion but please don’t try to push it on me and please keep it out of the...

So… somehow I missed this… but here is my (short) rant anyway: Perhaps in honor of The Pill’s 50th birthday we should consider all the threats that women still face to their health from the religious right.

I’m sending this link to my mom with the message “Remember when this was you?” See my mom used to tell me and my sister that there was no way that our little brother was having sex because his girlfriend had a promise ring.
