my young daughter wanted long hair but she often balked at washing or brushing it, so it looked a dirty mess. i told her that she didn't have to look at it (unless she went past a mirror) but the rest of us had no choice but to see it. so if she was kind, she'd make sure it wasn't painful to look at.

Too many times...

    My boyfriend actually had to quit work because his boss, who was also a man, was sexually harassing him. And I've had straight male friends who were harassed by women. The point stands though. if you're hitting on someone and you get visual or verbal clues that they aren't interested, you should back off.

Despite the persistent gender gap in opinion polls and mounting criticism of their hostility to women’s rights, Republicans are not backing off their assault on women’s equality and well-being. New laws in some states could mean a death sentence for a pregnant woman who suffers a life-threatening condition. But the attack goes well beyond abortion, into birth control, access to health care, equal pay and domestic violence.

Being derailed from your own struggle to comfort the feelings of others. Keep focus, keep fighting, keep fierce. We are being raped, we are being beaten, we are dying. We are dying. We are dying.

Gamergate’s anti-woman agenda made clear: Actor Felicia Day threatened for speaking up

  • Alexis

    I'm so sick of these assholes giving gamers a bad name and threatening people!

  • NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon

    I was afraid of that.

  • Katherine Teacher

    If I hear one more gamerdouche go on about how this ~movement~ totally isn't about misogyny, I will scream. If it isn't about misogyny, why are you wasting your breath arguing with me? Why aren't you going after the cretins that are making YOU look like (even more of) a dipshit woman-hater?

  • NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon

    Under my personal account I posted some pins about her to a big geek board today and I will come down like a ton of bricks on any "gamberdouche" (love that name) who comes after me I am sick of gamergate.

An eight year old child bride died in Yemen on her wedding night after suffering internal injuries due to sexual trauma. Human rights organizations are calling for the arrest of her husband who was five times her age. This is beyond disgusting and evil that ANY culture would allow children to be treated this way. ALL children have the inherent need and right to be loved, protected, cared for, and respected as individuals. Anything less is inhuman.

Seriously? Fox News to young women: Don't worry about voting, just focus on your Tinder profile

  • A~

    I'd like to revoke her vagina. And then her brain, since she's clearly NOT USING IT. How I loathe the whole FOX news woman schtick.

  • NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon

    Oh she's clearly using her brain (or the people who write the scrips are). They're trying to suppress voter turn out any way they can, and they ESPECIALLY want to keep people who care about reproductive issues away from the polls.
