Apparently, women are now the advantaged gender. And it’s our fault that they’re committing suicide at a higher rate than we do.
I’m so, so sorry that some people want to end their lives.
But that higher rate is connected to male privilege. So blame patriarchy, not feminism. Read the rest of this entry
So if your girlfriend asks if her new jeans make her look fat you should frankly say, “No fatter than the rest of your clothes.”
Is honesty overrated?
Psychological research finds that couples who idealize each other early in a relationship are more likely to still be in love months later. Couples who see each other realistically early on feel less in love, and are more likely to break up sooner.
Having heard the battle cry, “Gays are against God!” my Women’s Perspective club decided to visit the Christian club on campus.
We’d visited a lot of clubs, on numerous issues, hoping to take in various points of view. So we took a turn with “The Upside Down Club,” so named because they felt that their ideas were the reverse of society’s.
This group surprised us more than any other. Read the rest of this entry
After all, they tried raising their sons and daughters the same way, yet their girls still liked frilly pink dresses and their boys still played with guns.

Forget love potions and magic spells, this is actually much, much easier than you might think. Many of us struggle with our own sense of attractiveness, and influences such as advertising and the mainstream media’s portrayal of beauty do not help. We are trained to think that “Because she is beautiful people are attracted to her, and because of that she is confident and happy.” We spend fortunes on clothing, makeup, hair do’s (and don’ts!), expensive restaurants and other gimmicks in an attempt to cover up our own insecurities and copy what we see in the media. Notice how everyone is making buck of this little charade? Everyone except you! In order to become genuinely and irresistibly attractive to others we need to rethink everything, flip it all on it’s head. We don’t need to be “beautiful” to attract people in order to become happy and confident. We must become happy and confident, which makes us beautiful and attractive to others!

I’m puzzled by the reasons people give for their anger over Rachel Dolezal’s transracial turn.
Like arguments that contradict each other:
It’s okay to be transgender but not transracial because Read the rest of this entry

We’ve become more accepting of transgender people. But why aren’t transracial people okay?
The media has been storming over Rachel Dolezal of late because she was born in a white body but she feels black.
In fact, she has adopted black children, she is a professor of African-American Studies, and until recently she was a branch president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Apparently, a black woman who feels trapped in a white body is a major problem that all of society must obsess over and condemn. Read the rest of this entry
