Advanced Feminist Logic™

Some will say that it is an oxymoron to speak of feminist logic, but after many months of careful study, I have mastered the basics: 1. Do you have a vagina? 2. Vote Democrat!

Ethics in Doxxing?

@IjeomaOluo is a feminist and a thoughtful writer. This is a rare combination. Feminism has for decades been an intellectual ghetto inhabited by bad writers spewing tedious jargon (the misogynist oppressor mansplained, sitting at his desk surrounded by about five dozen books of feminist theory).
