"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]
It's Not Your Job To Educate Others, But Do It Anyway
"It's not my job to educate white people!" Man, it's tough to be a 'woke' black antiracist today. If a twelve-generation legacy of slavery, 100ish years of Jim Crow and Herschel Walker aren't enough of a cross to bear, you still have to keep answering Stupid White People Questions.
We Are The Murky Middle: The Enemy To All
Something happened to Kendra in the last twenty years. The woman who once was, in true progressive form, willing to accept another’s deeply held belief contradicting her own, recently defriended me on Facebook because she claimed I 'misgendered' people and was 'transphobic' and a 'TERF'.
Did You Ever Ruin Someone’s Life?
I recently sent an apology to someone for nasty shit I did forty years ago. Better late than never, n'est-ce pas? I was digitizing my life, scanning journals, stories, and photographs, reminding me of silly crap like my first boyfriend, playing 'beerhunter' with friends, the uber-drama of who likes who and who just broke up with who, and dumb private in-jokes whose humor is lost to the annals of time.
Lesbians, I Know That 'Cotton Ceiling' Guy Who Called You 'Transphobic'
I'm not a lesbian, so correct me if I'm wrong, since definitions change faster than Donald Trump's excuses for stashing classified documents, but as I understand it, traditional lesbians are girls who are attracted to girls and not boys. They like girls with girl-parts, not boy parts, and most especially not a penis and testicles. They like women with women's bodies, not jawlines with a five o'clock shadow or bodies that can win the men's decathlon.
"NO MORE BLOWJOBS!" A New Feminist Protest
A few years ago actress and feminist activist Alyssa Milano suggested a Lysistrata-style protest by women after the latest round of Republican-backed abortion rights limits. She was pooh-poohed, including by myself for suggesting a sex strike, but now, with Roe gone, maybe she had a point...?
What Do You Do If You Suspect A Potential Mass Shooter?
Weeeeeeeelllll...not sure I'm happy about that, even as I agree with your political assessment. Not crazy about you owning a gun being suicidal and all. Even as I recognize you might NEED it living in AmeriKKKa...
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.
