GUEST POST: You are not a feminist

Stop coopting the term “feminist.” If you privilege trans concerns over woman-born-women’s concerns, you are not a feminist. If you believe that the question of “what does it mean to be a woman?” has been settled, and that the only legitimate answer is that a woman is anyone who declares that identity, you are not […]

Notes from RadFem 2013

Many of you have asked for my impressions of RadFem 2103, a radical feminist conference that recently occurred in London, UK. This was the second conference in a row in London.  I was lucky enough to be able to attend both conferences. I have tried to wait for jet lag to wear off before I […]

My Womb Is Not A Football For You

“Mothers don’t kill their children unless they are very ill,” said Diane Sanford, a psychologist who has written two books on postpartum depression.”They believe they are protecting their children from having a life of misery and suffering.” “Motherhood is near to divinity.

“Feminist” Facebook page with 25,000 likes posts homophobic article discussing Lesbian sexuality and how Lesbians need to learn to appreciate penis so Lesbians and “people with penises” can have “fun” together.

Apparently, Anonymous is a Homophobic Men’s Rights Activist

Not shockingly, Men’s Rights Activists have descended on this blog since I posted a statement from the organizers of Rad Fem 2013 about the intimidation of the London Irish Centre by MRAs. You can read the comments there to see how violent and paranoid MRAs are. There are more comments I need to scrub of […]

Listen To What Men Tell You

I recently finished the book The Gift of Fear by Gavin DeBecker. A feminist friend suggested I read it because of the online harassment I get from Men (and Women, even from “Feminists”). I commend it to you, it’s a good read (oh and there’s a discussion of “sociopaths” in there for all of you who think […]

GUEST POST: A Woman with Turners Syndrome Discusses Feminism and Gender

By June42. You can read more of her on her blog. I have recently started getting involved with a radical feminist group, something I have been intending to do for a couple of years. Part of why I have wanted to get involved is that I have found feminist thought on a number of issues […]

All Hail Greggawatt, King of the Feminists!

Oh San Francisco, I love you, but your porny bullshit is tiresome.

The Life of a Radical Feminist Pirate

 “Ever since childhood, I have been honing my skills for living the life of a Radical Feminist Pirate and cultivating the Courage to Sin,” she wrote in the opening of “Sin Big.” …The word ‘sin’ is derived from the Indo-European root ‘es-,’ meaning ‘to be.’ When I discovered this etymology, I intuitively understood that for […]
