Oh opinions, everyone has them. Just like anuses and poor life decisions. Aren’t they great? Lots of people want to share their opinions, ESPECIALLY when other people are talking about something deeply personal, painful and emotionally traumatizing! Well fear not, person who feels oh so important! I have a guide for you about that very […]


This post has been crossposted at The Spectrum Cafe I don’t think it’s much of a secret that feminism as a movement (and sometimes even as an ideology) has some troubles. A movement plagued by prescriptive nonsense on a fairly regular basis, it has been guilty of body policing, life choice policing and attacking those […]


Crossposted to The Spectrum Cafe. There’s a funny thing in the United States (and in a few other places too). It’s called a right to privacy. It isn’t perfect. After all, any right will have some limitations to account for clashes of rights. But for the most part, we all have a right to not […]


Activists work together. Very rarely is there a lone wolf thing going on with activists. We can be pretty social (mostly by necessity, trying to do this shit alone is hard). Quite often a community forms around bloggers, lobbyists, small organizations and non profits. This community coordinates the efforts of individual activists, aids them, supports […]


Allies. Supporters. Helpers. People who work with you in alliance, to aid your interests. No doubt they’re important. Alliance is what gives us the numbers we need to fight back against systemic oppression. We can’t go it alone, obviously, so we recruit people to the cause. Alliance is not just giving lip service. In fact […]


This post has been crossposted as a guest post at Questioning Transphobia here. There was an incident a few weeks ago. It didn’t happen to my face but it still was a direct invasion of my privacy. First, some background: If you don’t know me, I’m polyamorous. I date, love and am intimate with multiple […]


Addendum: After more recent events with Melissa McEwan’s whiny apologism for feminism trying to morally mandate us out of existance and pathetic privilege mongering, as well as her entire site engaging in apologism for her, I finally came to the realization that feminism is fucked as a movement. The rot is in the core, there’s […]


MORE update! Turns out that Bil never really learned the meaning of too little, too late. Seriously? It took massive fisking and your own contributors threatening to leave for you to realize that trans hate language wasn’t okay? Really? It took your fauxpology being rejected blogosphere-wide? I really can’t see much sincerity here. It looks […]


Addendum: Replaced the ableist word stupid with fucked in the title. Oh look, another post about Roman Polanski. *sighs* Rape apologists are sort of like the really out-of-touch-with-reality conspiracy theorists. Only, they go in the opposite direction. Instead of making up ridiculous bullshit, stringing together barely coherent arguments based on a complete and utter disavowal […]
