"Grow Some Labia" is for women and others who are tired of self-infantilizing narratives that identify with victimhood rather than self-power. Big girls and boys don't blame 'The Patriarchy'. Twitter: @nchardenet. [email protected]
What If Human Women Challenged Male Aggression Like Bonobos?
Let's be perfectly clear on this point: Women decide when violence ends against women, not men. The passive lessons of feminism past have gone as far as they can go. Enough with telling men to stop hurting women. They already know it's wrong. We have to force the ones who don't care.
4/20 Day: A Brief Truthy History Of Weed, Maaaan…
It’s 4/20 Day! Stop whatever you’re doing at 4:20pm, or 4:20am if you’re really dedicated, and mellow out, show the world that reefer smokers are way nicer people than drunks, and really, really piss off Americans where it’s still not federally legal yet. Ha ha, with Mexico (sort of) legalized now the U.S. is sandwiched between us and them! Exhale north, nuestros amigos! Exhale south, nos amis!
Yeah, Um, About That 'Racist Coverage of Ukraine' Thing...
I'll call what Trevor Noah expressed at the beginning of the Russian war on Ukraine 'tribalism'. He accused both journalists and news consumers of racism for viewing the war differently from wars in other parts of the world. He isn't wrong, but he blithely ignores other important reasons why the West is more het up about an illegal invasion by a fading superpower of a prosperous, democratic, and yes Trevor, civilized country like Ukraine. Gas prices didn't shoot up when Rwanda broke out in massacre. Maybe we paid more for coffee for awhile. We're about to pay a lot more for wheat-based food since Russia is the world's largest wheat exporter and Ukraine, until the war, was the sixth-largest global and a top producer of rye, sunflower seeds and barley.
When Being Wrong Is Worse Than Being Abused
The new friendship came with an expiry date, I knew that much. He's black; I'm white. He was African, Americanized after twenty-plus years living in the States. I, Canadianized, after fifteen years apart from the mother country.
The 5 Best Books For Avoiding Abusive Relationships
If there's one thing I'm really good at, it's avoiding partner abuse. It's foreign to me. It's why I've come to address the unmet feminist market niche: Patching and fortifying the female brain against acceptance of abuse, and from allowing toxic men into one's life.
When You ‘Tell Your Truth’ How Much Of It Is True?
Women love to 'tell their truths', most recently under the #MeToo label, and almost always involving bad, abusive men. Gaslighters. BDPs. Manipulators. Psychopaths. And of course everyone's fave pop-psychology label, narcissists.
"But He Says He Loves Me!": The Women's Abuse Prevention Manual
Want to know what your abuser's really thinking while he's gaslighting, controlling, criticizing, and reminding you every single day how worthless you are, but how oh-so-lucky to have him, since no other man would?
Don’t Be The Victim: Patch Your Brain
Even if a computer network is 99.5% secure, the remaining vulnerabilities can be exploited by ‘bad actors’. A network manager protects the system. Her responsibility is to ferret out vulnerabilities and patch them. If a cyber attacker finds one first he can exploit it and bring down the whole system. Her job just got a whole lot harder. She must recover the network and patch that vulnerability so it can’t be exploited again.
"She Is Willing To Do Whatever It Takes To Be With Me"
You don't have to be Marilyn Manson to abuse women the way he's accused, but it undoubtedly makes things a smidge easier. Last year ex-fiancee Evan Rachel Wood outed the previously alluded-to 'powerful' man who cruelly abused her for years. She was 19 when she met the 36-year-old Manson at a party while he was still married to burlesque queen Dita Von Teese, whom he divorced the same year. Wood told Insider that they looked into each other's eyes and 'knew'.
The Great American White-Out
“Nicole, I thought I was going crazy. I spent HOURS on Pixabay finding images without people for my software app. It was insane! Nuts! I began hearing VOICES, arguing in my head with people on social media! Like, they were criticizing and shaming me for having images that were too white or too this or too that!”
