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. It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind.” ― Howard W. Hunter […]

Being Feminist Means Telling Lesbians To Have Sex With Men

“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. The punch line? The article was posted by a 23-year old  woman. Like, I have been a Lesbian longer than you’ve been alive. If […]

Straight Man Says Women “Bad” For Knowing Sex =//= Gender

Dan Solomon is a  “straight, white cisgender man” from Texas who has things to say about Women like Suzanne Moore and Julie Burchill who dare to (1) notice that transwomen are men and 2) have the guts to speak out about it. Dan wants you to know that he’s got the backs of his fellow Men, […]

Oh, Yes, “Creating Change”

You might recall that last year, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force waited until the last possible moment to remember that L in NGLTF stands for Lesbians.
