If I had I been more spiritually evolved, or more grounded at 22 when I got breast implants, I never would have gotten them. Yes I got lots of attention, sexual attention. And for awhile I enjoyed it. But as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for. It became apparent that the attention I received was not from quality people… Why did I mutilate my body to appease the tastes of SOME men? We were all duped by the media, the medical profession, our low self-esteem. I am now ready to have these D cups removed.
Why would terrorists target girls and mothers?
You’ve surely heard of the ISIS attack at Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” concert in Manchester, England.
“Dangerous Woman” — an anthem of female empowerment. Scary stuff to male-supremests. Read the rest of this entry
Some guys pressure their partners for the porn star experience.
Sure, some women are into PSE. But if you are pressuring her, it can totally backfire. Read the rest of this entry
A number of Trump supporters read my blog and I’m curious about your thoughts on a question I have.
After Trump’s election I had hoped that he would at least help the working class, as promised.
Yet he has sided with the elite on every major issue: Read the rest of this entry
Why would my wife like corsets? Especially since she’s feminist?
One of my male feminist friends wondered about that.
Meanwhile, the New York Times’ Alexander Fury brought this news alert: the corset has become:
A symbol of empowerment, of sexual freedom, of control. She’s the one holding the laces, the one constructing her own femininity.
So Jayson Gaddis asked men on his Facebook page why they thought they did, and then he wrote about it for The Good Men Project.
What is objectification? Jayson describes it as:
Staring, gawking, or checking out women and their bodies and body parts. Seeing them as objects instead of actual people, and thinking of them in a sexual way.
Why do they do it? Read the rest of this entry
In The Handmaid’s Tale Americans — and women especially — were gradually stripped of their rights, with little protest.
A small march here or there.
Is “The Handmaid’s Tale” a prediction?
Author Margaret Atwood is commonly asked that question. Read the rest of this entry
Some women wore shirts bellowing, “Trump can grab my pussy!”
People often confuse patriarchy with men. But they aren’t the same thing.
Plenty of men fight against patriarchy/sexism. And plenty of women are sexist.
Why are women sometimes sexist? Read the rest of this entry
The theocratic Gilead of The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) devalued and disempowered women and forced them from the public sphere.
It all happened gradually… drip, drip…
Mirroring what some in the (probably more fundamentalist Christian branch of the) Republican party try to do today.
Like their fight against birth control, which keeps women in the home and dependent, as we’ve seen.
But there’s more. Here’s a sampler: Read the rest of this entry
When Donald Trump ran for President I lived in a liberal bubble.
Obviously, he was uninformed, self-interested, hot tempered — and just might blow up the world. And his sexist buffoonery appalled me.
I mocked him on Facebook, thinking no one else took him seriously, either.
And then some “red” friends unfriended me.
That got me out of my bubble.
I stopped chiding him and started trying to understand them.
And then something strange happened. Read the rest of this entry
