Rehashing Women’s Studies

I added a new link to the side: Sociologists for Women in Society. They’ve issued a report card grading gender parity in academic departments and scholarship at the nation’s universities. Additionally, they note the worst abusers. Check out the report, it is a good read.

A lady likes to pee standing up –

After reading Cunt, I want to take more charge of my bodily fluids – change my relationship to my cycle.  She, Inga Muscio, writes of inducing her own abortion using herbs and her mind.  She writes of using moon charts.  She also highlights spending money on women’s products created by women and owned by women.

A New-To-Me Blog

Femocracy.net is a blog that is new to me.  Amanda is the authoress who apologizes to no one and is well informed about the topics she discusses.  Her ‘About’ section is as follows: “Femocracy includes commentary about politics, news and the media, with an interest in social issues and civil rights. The site is written […]

Home Births, again.

I have written about home births before and I am going to write about it again. One, I seem to behind the boat about New York Magazine‘s little narrative about home births.  This is another reason why being subscribed to the print magazine doesn’t always cut it.  I had missed several responses (not all negative, […]

Sex in the Classroom

After an odd night with a toxic soul I decided to read some feminist commentary to reassure myself that my principles are accurate and not wrong-headed nor unreasonable.  More importantly, to console myself that I am not “crazy,” “nuts,” “unstable,” or “indecisive” like all women are according to the septic tank who spoke so eloquently […]

Lady Gaga is like . . .

Goldfrapp Peaches Kylie Minogue M.I.A. Gwen Stefani Santigold Pink Grace Jones Christina Aguilera Erykah Badu And, of course, Madonna.

Happy Women’s History Month!

I have been reading the book, Cunt.  It’s a fantastic book by Inga Muscio.  The author’s website has womanifestoes that fans and readers have submitted. So, to start off Women’s History Month, I am going to include one. “Irigaray wrote that as women we are always plural: two lips touching each other, secretly, constantly. as […]

America’s Next Great Pundit Contest

As I was getting my daily dose of feministing.com, I ran across yesterday’s post by Jessica Valenti asking for support for one of their contributors, Courtney Martin, to win the Washington Post’s “America’s Next Great Pundit” contest.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love feministing.com, it is one of my favorite sites.  That’s why it’s […]

The United Nations Website

I’m not sure when or how recently the UN overhauled their website, but it looks fantastic.  Clearly, someone in the right place heard the complaints about their crotchety website and the confusion about the actual structure and organization of the massive organism itself. Let me tell ya, I like progress. I can actually find the […]
