Witchfest and Amazon Cuntree

Originally posted on when women were warriors:
You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen over four miles of Amazons with their mohawks and ripped jeans, neon pink frill, backwards ball caps, buzzed heads, hiking boots and booty shorts, cowgirl hats and cigarettes as they saunter and squat to piss in the corn fields or set…

You Will Always be in my Heart

Originally posted on one woman province:
I am not sure where to even start on a post about my journey last week to the 40th Michigan Women’s Music Festival. I had signed up to support WoLF (Women’s Liberation Front) in hosting an intrafest event called Radfem Rhapsody within Michfest as a space for exchange of radical…

A meditation on the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival : 1975-2015

Originally posted on phonaesthetica:
The nutloaf was nutty. The drumming was drummy. I bought a dykey leather bracelet, got my period, howled like a wolf, showered in the open air and woke up in a tent underneath several inches of water during a thunderstorm. I washed dishes in a communal trough and let a silky…

Loving Women

Originally posted on Radfem Repost:
By Natasha Chart You remember lesbians, right? They’re sort of like gay men, but they are female people who are only sexually attracted to other female people. They are discriminated against in every society in the world, and often specifically targeted for rape because of their rejection of men. They…

I live in Baltimore. I […]

Straw Transwoman err Man

A straw man is a logical fallacy based on the misrepresentation of an opponent’s argument. To be successful, a straw man argument requires that the audience be ignorant or uninformed of the original argument. Transgender Women and their Helpful Allies DEPEND ON the straw man specifically with regard to arguing against “Cathy Brennan.” I generally do not […]

Repeat a Lie Often Enough, It Becomes True

In another lifetime, when I was young, I was very active in the effort to amend Maryland’s anti-discrimination law to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation. I believed then, as I believe now, that sexual orientation discrimination is, in fact, sex discrimination. However, my feelings on this are irrelevant, as Maryland law made quite clear […]

A Driving Feminist Issue

Driving is a feminist issue. Driving is necessary. It’s particularly necessary for Women. We need to move to get away from Men who abuse us, to relocate for Jobs or Education. Driving is vital. Given the poor state of public transportation in many parts of the world (and Maryland in particular, with its emphasis on […]
