What My Kidney Stone Taught Me About Sexism In The ER

The Establishment | Posted 07.13.2016 | Women
The Establishment

The good news about my research and confirmation from other women is that it means I wasn't overreacting. The bad news is that the more times women have to insist those issues aren't the problem, the longer everyone is suffering -- and the faster a fatal disaster could occur.

The Thickest Of Skins Won't Stop A Bullet

Janis Irwin | Posted 07.06.2016 | Canada Politics
Janis Irwin

The senseless killing of British MP Jo Cox is "a manifestation of a coarseness in our politics and hatred toward the other that we must not tolerate." That from American politician Gabby Giffords, herself the target of an assassination attempt. We must do better. We must hold each other to account. We must condemn threats against women in politics, because the death of Jo Cox shows what can happen when threats are actualized. We must not let threatening, misogynistic, or hateful discourse online or elsewhere go unopposed. We must not let hate win and we must not let people try to tell us that we cannot be better.

A Letter to Bernie Supporters From An Angry White Woman Who Loves Hillary

Liza Long | Posted 06.09.2016 | Politics
Liza Long

I am one of those angry white women. You don't hear too much about us, mostly because, as you might expect in a country rife with institutionalized misogyny, all the focus is on the angry white men who support that pseudo-candidate with the fake hair and small hands.

What I Learned About Hillary Clinton from Baby Books

Psyched in San Francisco | Posted 06.03.2016 | Politics
Psyched in San Francisco

A woman in Clinton's position is faced with the impossible: to please everyone while everything about her is called into question--her appearance, her marriage, her sexual appeal. She must be both mother and monger enough to convince us she could be Putin's opponent.

Why Wouldn't a Christian University Take Sexual Assault Seriously?

Susan M. Shaw | Posted 05.27.2016 | Religion
Susan M. Shaw

We could cynically point to hypocrisy. Certainly that's there. But I think the underlying belief system that allows a Christian university to overlook sexual violence is a kind of misogyny related to particular conservative Christian convictions about women, gender, and sexuality.

2016 is the year I have realized that the men on the other side of the window are not all religious or political conservatives. Many of them are liberal in their worldview and the champions of progressive causes.

Trump's Southern Regions Strategy

Steven Conn | Posted 05.18.2016 | Politics
Steven Conn

The GOP has indeed been waging a war on women since the Reagan years. Campaigning against Hilary Clinton, Trump will amplify that contempt and make the GOP's misogyny cruder and more vile than any of us can imagine right now.

The Misconception About Feminism

Montclair Diplomats | Posted 05.17.2016 | Women
Montclair Diplomats

Feminism is not the hatred towards men. The point of feminism is not to discriminate against men. Feminism is not a movement to discourage men. Feminism is not a movement plotting to pull all men out of power.

Trump's Brand of Bigotry Isn't Going Away. So Neither Are We.

Jim Wallis | Posted 05.13.2016 | Politics
Jim Wallis

I'm not sure Donald Trump has the personal conviction to be a racist. He just sells racism -- and that's worse. Trump's racial, religious, and gender bigotry will lose him many religious Americans, including those whom the media has often called "values voters."

I know firsthand how important it is for those with ADHD to get support for their condition. Diagnoses are of course not always helpful for everyone, but my own diagnosis gave me the power to see that there was nothing inevitable about the way I felt.
