Justice for Cindy Gladue

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

I am very sore today because merely standing triggers my pelvis pain to the point where I drag both my feet.  Also, Paul very efficiently tricked me into mowing the back lawn, so I was really, really sore by the time I was done. 2.0 hours on the cpap – keep forgetting to put the […]

My response to an fb post about Paul Elam

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

Who is a noted MEN’S RIGHTS ACTIVIST. Who doesn’t want women to work outside the home at all. No matter how much work of what type women do, they are going to get told that it isn’t real work, because real work is what men do. I hear what he’s feeling – he feels useless, […]

Shot my mouth off on twitter this morning – bottom to top.

Round up

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Now that is a very nice use of the gif format. I haven’t seen Alexander yet.  Katie called yesterday and she’ll call me when she’s ready to receive visitors at home. This infographic on prayer made me alternately very uncomfortable and amused.  As an atheist, I can’t separate prayer from ‘wishing so hard that you’re […]

22 ways rapists hurt men

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

They reduce the number of women interested in sex.  Then they blame women for not being available.  They drag you along for that ride. They damage women physically and sometimes give them long term health problems which your taxes help pay to ameliorate. They spread diseases. They make men who don’t rape look bad by […]

Young feminist brings a mighty deconstruction to some ugly words.

for a callback for the onset of a period of adjustment – I’ve finally bought my machine. for inspiration about esthetics for sunday for inspiration to make my comments on the minister’s Rite of Ordination but despite the waiting there has been movement; I made supper for breakfast this morning; chops and fresh green beans […]

There are a lot of men rubbing their eyes and scratching themselves and thinking…. the math isn’t right.

What kind of man are you, Robert?

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Here’s the offending document, from Skepchick. Here’s my response.   Dear Robert, I was interested to read your email to skepchick.  I have a number of questions.  I am sure that your email box is full, so I’ll give you a couple of weeks to shovel your way out from under the uptick in mail […]

Notes from rape culture

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Amazing.  The power of a good metaphor should never be underestimated.

Part of what I’ve been doing with my time off

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

My Moleskine comes with stickers. There are romance stickers. One suited nominally male and skirted nominally female, two more that are same sex. My first thought, “But what about transpersons, genderqueers, fellagirlies and the polyamorous?” Is it possible I’ve been hitting the self-paced gender studies a little too hard during my time off? bwa ha […]

I blame the patriarchy

Friday, May 6th, 2011

….is a blog, not mine.  The rude and rowdy feminist who runs the site quoth she, quoth she: Did you know that not being happy for people on demand is some sort of crime? It’s true! The minute you aren’t happy for somebody who is making the worst decision of her life, they absolutely have […]

Canadians are lucky.  We could be Libyans or Bahrainis or Japanese, but we’re not.   Watched this last night. Appalling.  Then I read this. And ya wonder why I’m a feminist. So as a chaser.   Something cute. Something excessive.

Why I’m still a feminist

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Wow.  I don’t hate men, and I don’t hate these men.   The poster and the commenters are very confused, though.  I can’t remember seeing this many unexamined assumptions in one place since I visited a white power site.

I wish there was a tactful way of putting this in front of a couple of men I love dearly.  JEFF IS NOT ONE OF THEM, btw.  Anyway, have fun, and don’t let your blood pressure go up too much.  Have especial fun with the comments.
