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 […]

You Think Pronouns Are The Issue?

Cemia “Ci Ci” Dove, also known as Carl Acoff Jr., was a transgender woman killed by someone, brutally, in Cleveland, Ohio. Acoff’s body “was stabbed repeatedly and dumped into a pond, tethered to a block of concrete.” An intentional killing, obviously. The killer did not want anyone to find Ms. Acoff’s body. I will “speculate” that a Man […]

We Don’t Need No Education

One of my all time favorite movies is Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Have you seen it? It features the incomparable Peter Sellers (one of my all-time favorite actors, male or female) in four different roles, including Dr. Strangelove, who invented The Bomb. It’s a satire about […]

Ruth Barrett Responds

My response to the request to boycott the Michigan Festival.  April 11, 2013 Dear Community Sisters and Performers of the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, I want to give Alyson Palmer a standing ovation for her brilliant and eloquently crafted letter in response to the trans-activist’s call to the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival performers to boycott […]

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 […]

What About The Men?

I am an avid reader of your blogs (I think I sent you a FB message once saying something to the effect of “keep fighting the good fight”). I was wondering if you might write up a post some day on how lay men who are not part of this particular struggle can be allies […]

For Every One of Us You Silence, 100 More Will Rise to Take Her Place

I received the following (unsolicted) email from Gallus Mag at GenderTrender, which I present unedited: “As some of you may know, my posting access to my GenderTrender wordpress.com blog was suspended at the end of the business day on Friday January 18. My last post, on Friday morning, was a collection of screen caps: a […]

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, […]

To the Victor Go the Spoils

This is a post on my OBSERVATIONS of Transwomen. As this post is only my observation based on my personal experience, your experience may vary – or you may notice similar patterns of behavior from “Transwomen.” Not all Transwomen behave like these clowns. Sadly, these clowns are LOUD. Let’s begin! Transwomen sound like Violent Men. […]

Intersectionality Has Its Limitations

Why is it that heterosexual third-wave feminists understand “intersectionality” when it comes to everyone except Lesbians? You know, Lesbians? Your sisters? Your sisters who love other Women (and by Women, I mean Women – not Trans Women). A friend alerted me to a discussion on the Guerrilla Feminism Facebook page, run by a Woman named […]
