Monsanto Feels Backlash →
It confuses me sometimes when people so involved in activism and community building have no idea where their food comes from. I consider the food that I buy and consume to be a form of activism. I was a vegetarian for eight years. Recently, I switched things around. I eat some meat now, if it is local and humanely raised (insofar as raising an animal for slaughter can be humane), and buy organic...

Sometimes I just want to punch people, then sit them down and make them explain to me why they think that this is ok. Then I want to explain to them why they’re wrong. In detail.

Would You Like to Come Sit With Me?
Today on the bus I saw a woman being harassed by a guy. He was getting in her face, talking loudly, and coughing on her. As women often do, she got out a feeble word of protest, then tried to ignore him. Instead of ignoring her, I helped. I walked over, tapped her on the shoulder and asked, “don’t I know you (I didn’t)? Would you like to come sit with me?” And she did....

According to ThinkProgress, “Over a lifetime, the pay gap adds up to more than $430,000 in lost wages for an individual on women.” Earlier this month, Senate Republicans…
No Shame in Abortion →
This is a smart woman. She speaks to the importance of changing the game, and the use of protest as a powerful tool. Consent is important privately, and politically.
True, and scary
thisiswhiteprivilege: White privilege is everyone knowing about Chris Brown assaulting Rihanna but no one knowing about what Sean Penn did to Madonna (tortured her for 9 hours), Charlie Sheen did to his exes (he freaking shot one of them and was arrested for domestic violence before), Nicholas Cage did to his exes (he was arrested for domestic violence), or really any white artists who were also...

Abortion is a Public Health Issue
Women have been having abortions for centuries. They just didn’t call it that. “Restoring the menses” was a common, unquestioned practice for women: they used herbs like pennyroyal, tansy, ergot, and seneca snakeroot as abortifacients (substances used to restore menstruation to a ‘blocked’ woman). It was not considered a pregnancy until ‘quickening,’ the...
Dear Team Pro-Life
Congratulations on supporting the sanctity of human life in your loud condemnation of women who choose to abort their fetuses, zygotes, embryos and the like! So what now? I assume that since you so adamantly want these pre-humans to grow and be born as babies that you have some plan to support them. Since even now there are more babies (and children) waiting to be adopted than adoptees, how will...
