"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]
This Is What Zero Tolerance For Abuse Looks Like
Honestly, it really wasn't a big deal. I knew it at the time, but I still didn't like it. My parents had gone off on a weekend trip. They'd had an argument in the motel room about something minor. Dad rapped Mom lightly on the thigh.
'Private' Domestic Violence Is Now Everyone's Business
Warning: Brief mentions of animal and child abuse. Canada's worst mass shooter, the late Gabriel Wortman, returned to the news as police release information about his extremely violent genealogical history. Wortman's father Paul was highly abusive as was George, Paul's father.
We Accept Transgenderism. Are We Ready For Transracialism?
Rachel Dolezal is still black, in case you were wondering. Dolezal, a/k/a Nkechi Diallo (she legally changed her name in 2016) is now on OnlyFans, where she hawks beauty and fashion tips, and box braid tips for her fellow sisters.
Overturning Roe v Wade Will Weaponize Rape In Some States
Controlling women's fertility has been the number one tool in the patriarchal misogynist's box for thousands of years. When a woman has no say in whose babies she'll have, or how many, even when she doesn't want any, she's trapped in an iron fist. She's forced to stay home and raise children, even if they were conceived by incest and other rape.
Smashing The Patriarchy? What's In It For Men?
In my last article, What If Human Women Challenged Male Aggression Like Bonobos? I explored theories as to why our close primate cousins evolved toward the more peaceful society many of us humans claim we want. Bonobo society exhibits some elements of a 'matriarchy' rather than a patriarchy, but still appears much more equitable for both sexes in a way the patriarchal model of male dominance never has been.
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.
