Senator Claire McCaskill for President (in 2020)

Laura Goldman | Posted 11.19.2015 | Politics
Laura Goldman

"Plenty Ladylike" is a warts and all memoir that provides a walk down memory lane of the bad old days of rampant sexism. It is equally a story about triumph. While McCaskill admits to crying at some of the insults hurled at her, she, for the most part, let them fuel her rise to the US Senate.

College campuses are lively explorations of just how far youthful exuberance can take rebellion against political correctness. While we diversity professionals emphasize that slang and snarky jokes do not translate across cultural boundaries, we're fighting an uphill battle.

The Strange and Wondrous Life of an Urban Goat Herder

I think we can all agree that goats are a little weird. Or at least, seemingly. They are, perhaps, not unlike the elusive durian--much-maligned for being thorny and smelly. But just as the durian's facade gives way to delectably sweet fruit, so too does a goat's.

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.

College Students Need Lessons in Tolerance and Free Speech

Peter Scheer | Posted 11.18.2015 | Politics
Peter Scheer

Today's students' equating of hurt feelings with scarring wounds is a departure that leads to dangerous overreaction. When unwelcome ideas are decried in the language of pain and injury, the impulse to suppress them -- rather than to challenge and debate them -- can be irresistible.

Women In Brazil Are Footing Too Many Bills -- And Not Writing Enough Of Them

Karen Sztajnberg | Posted 11.10.2015 | World
Karen Sztajnberg

We have to stop seeing egalitarianism as an act of largess on man's part, a concession. Maybe we have failed to quantify and sufficiently show Brazilian men that it benefits everyone to live in a society where women have more of an equal footing.

Without black women administering the ministry, praying for the pastor, teaching the children, singing in the choir, cooking in the kitchen, answering the phones, photocopying the bulletin, and testifying to the goodness of the Lord on Wednesday nights, there is no Black Church.

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.

Spike Lee, You Should Have Done the Right Thing With 'Chiraq

Ernest Owens | Posted 11.05.2015 | Black Voices
Ernest Owens

"The trailer for 'Chiraq,' in all its glitz and shock value, is arousing - but the premise of this film isn't." You make this a black-on-black trauma without taking into consideration external systemic factors. And to top it off, you place women of color as the barriers to these men's burdens. That's not original, that's just plain pathetic.

Since men do not have direct experience of the damage that female pornography causes, they might have to trust us, to listen to and honor what we are telling them. They may also have to tell themselves the truth about the suffering their behavior causes.
