Being A Woman In A Big City Is Like Living Under A Permanent Curfew

Mariana Mazzini | Posted 02.03.2016 | Latino Voices

Bern the Witch-Hunters

David Trumble

In the absence of name-calling, smear campaigns, misogyny and conspiracy theorizing by Bernie, his supporters have compensated by doing it all themselves. The Sanders campaign has no need for attack ads, their supporters write infinitely more toxic slurs and accusations in countless blogs.

While Marc Gafni attempts to package himself as a spiritual and sexual revolutionary, he has shown himself to be yet another ethical train wreck--a sexual predator with a pretty face, an impressive resume, and terrifying charisma.

Sexual Harassment Is Not "A Thing" -- It's Misogyny

Marissa Castrigno | Posted 01.15.2016 | Women
Marissa Castrigno

To be a woman is to be an invitation; to be a woman with a same-sex partner is to be a conquest; to say "no" to a man is to issue him a challenge; to say "no" twice, rather than conceding, is to be a bitch.

For the men who claim that women no longer carry themselves as queens, several questions emerge: "What makes you a king?" "Who decided that all men were kings?" "Can you lose your crown if your actions prove that you're no longer worthy of wearing it?"

The Problem With Drake Is His Problem With Women

The Establishment | Posted 11.30.2015 | Entertainment
The Establishment

The crux of the problem seems to be that he wants to categorize women into one of two categories: good girls and bad girls. While this paradigm is both well-trod and seemingly straightforward, Drake makes it something more complicated.

Men Need to Stop Telling Women What to Write, Say, Think, Feel...

Kimberley A. Johnson | Posted 11.29.2015 | Women
Kimberley A. Johnson

Men who give unsolicited advice about what I should or shouldn't be saying are sexist chauvinists who just can't stand that a woman has a voice. To them I say with a smile; too bad.

My Open Knees Are None of Your Business

Kimberley A. Johnson | Posted 11.23.2015 | Women
Kimberley A. Johnson

The truth is I've never participated in an orgy, and I have no actual desire to do it -- but judgy conservatives make me want to do it as a way to hold up my middle finger. It's my body and I'll get off any way I see fit.

When It Comes to Street Harassment, Bravery Isn't Cut-and-Dry

On Halloween, four boys who most likely went to my university pulled up next to me in a battered sedan as I walked to meet my friend. "Must be cold in that skirt," they yelled, and then gunned the engine before I could respond. I ran the rest of the way home.

Nora McInerny Purmort

I'm alive and I'm a person. I don't like when a**holes tell me to smile. I don't like being told to be quiet, and I don't like having to turn the other cheek because strangers on the Internet could light me up all day long because they don't like big mean feminists. You don't get to make me afraid.

Michelle Rodriguez Can Have Several Seats When It Comes to Trans Narratives

Sidney Chase | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices

Not only does this put into the minds of Americans that transition is something external that is forced, but it also paints us as villains in a time where over 20 trans women have been killed this year.

From what I can tell, although you don't really align with a political party, you believe in the conservative "bootstraps" theory: that people just need to put their shoulder into a task, have good ole American gumption, and they'll be alright.

'Why Won't She Go to the Police?' or How the Police Tolerate Gender-Based Violence in Their Own Ranks

Soraya Chemaly | Posted 11.03.2015 | Women
Soraya Chemaly

Why won't women "just go to the police"? Maybe because they don't have faith the police will help them. Brutality often begins at home, including in police families. In department after department, law enforcement officials are ignoring disciplinary and legal standards for officers accused of sexual violence and domestic violence.

The Offensive, Sexist Joke That Is Candy Carson vs. Michelle Obama

Ashley Mae Hunt | Posted 10.21.2015 | Women
Ashley Mae Hunt

Obama has "DirectTV," Carson has "cable," and apparently, the American people have no class. Just because these women have husbands that have chosen a life in the public eye, serving the public, does not make them fair game for sexist jokes and offensive comparison.
