Colleges Need Quotas Favoring Men?

Female privilege versus male privilege

Female privilege versus male privilege

By  @ The Ms. Magazine Blog

Every year as a new school semester begins, someone writes an ominous article about the fact that more women are graduating from college these days than men.

The latest hand-wringing salvo comes from famed anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly, and it’s a doozy. Schlafly wrote on World Net Daily that not only is this imbalance bad for men, but also for women, since a dearth of males on campus puts a crimp in women’s plans to find husbands, leading them instead to pursue meaningless sex. Schlafly writes: Read the rest of this entry

I Didn’t Come From Your Rib. You Came From My Vagina.

I didn't come from your rib. You came from my vagina

I didn’t come from your rib. You came from my vagina

Once upon a time we imagined God as The Goddess.

Women give birth, and so from the goddess worlds were born.

But once we knew the role men played the goddess birthed a son who grew to become her lover and consort. And from these two worlds were born.

Later, gods overtook goddesses. And eventually, from God the world was born. (Why this pattern? I’ll discuss it later.)

And these patriarchal types have been trying to control women’s reproduction ever since.

Whether or not he is guilty, the game institutionalizes sexism. And it’s the sort of thing that can spur assault.  Read the rest of this entry

Using Men for Money, Sex and Self-Esteem 

self-esteemBy Adriana Martinez 

Life holds lessons. Some, you must learn first-hand.

As a young teen I had a crush on my brother’s friends. Once, when we were hanging out, my dad ordered me back in the house.

“What were you doing out there with them?”

“Just hanging out.”

“If you keep hanging out with boys you’ll grow up to be a slut.” Read the rest of this entry

ISIL Rape Theology: When “God” Erases Conscience

conscience 3ISIL leadership has deemed rape to be spiritually beneficial.

Why do (some) women watch gay porn?

Why do women — especially lesbians — watch gay porn?

Well, not all women – probably a minority of them. But still.

But gay porn stars are also HOT.

And how much of the allure comes from spotlighting — shall we say — a certain part of the male physique? Read the rest of this entry

Robin Williams’ Depression. And Mine.

Robin Williams

Robin Williams

Robin Williams died about a year ago. As a tribute I am reposting a piece I wrote last year, in hopes that others might benefit from reading about my struggle with anxiety and depression. I’ve also learned a little more in the last few months.

Robin Williams’ death jarred me. And disturbed me. Reading about his struggle with depression and anxiety, his words kindled my own dark memories.

Unlike Robin, I’d found a way out. Read the rest of this entry
