Stuff You Can’t Make Up

From Beca Grimm (@becagrimm): I fertilized some lettuce I grew with my period blood for @VICE then made/ate a salad: http://t.co/N4ZSRmXxkH — dj crumple chin (@becagrimm) July 30, 2014 Have I ever mentioned my insanely obsessive curiosity? When something catches my attention, it is my habit to research the topic within an inch of its […]

It’s a Man’s (Virtual) World, Baby

Before starting this discussion, permit me to point out that no entrepreneur in conservative online media has been more successful than Michelle Malkin, who launched two digital start-ups — HotAir.com and Twitchy.com — and subsequently sold these Internet properties to Salem Communications for sums rumored to be seven figures each. The knowledge that this woman’s phenomenal […]

Woman’s Harassment Lawsuit Claims Yahoo Executive Is Lesbian Predator

Maria Zhang (left) and her accuser Nan Shi (right).

Sex Trouble: Feminists Worry That Disney Movies Are Making Girls Heterosexual

Jasmine was a victim of Aladdin’s magic patriarchal carpet. Is your daughter a victim of male oppression? Blame Aladdin – as well as The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, The Lion King and Toy Story 2. Disney cartoons and other G-rated children’s movies are full of “gendered sexuality,” subjecting women to the male “objectifying gaze,” as “heterosexuality is constructed through hetero-romantic […]

Where Feminism Comes From

Earlier, I quoted a Canadian feminist blog about “how bullies and abusers function” and then — having “set the hook,” as a fisherman might say — reeled off the history of the Brett Kimberlin case, without getting into the specific issues the Canadian feminist was talking about, which are interesting enough that they deserve their […]
