Pride In Our Foremothers

Throwing a shot glass through a window while having a tantrum isn’t hard. Plenty of alcoholics have done this. Organizing is hard. This Pride month, pay homage to the actual workers of the Lesbian Liberation Movement. Stop believing what Men/Transwomen tell you about your herstory, dykes. Remember Storme DeLarverie. Remember Lorraine Hansberry. Remember Daughters of Bilitis. Read  Surpassing […]

Statement in support of WoLF’s and Cathy Brennan’s work on gender identity reforms

Originally posted on ANTI-MANARCHY:
I’ve had this one in the chamber for some months now. I saw it coming because I know the radical male left — but to be honest, it never really hit me until Cathy Brennan and her friends were ambushed in Olympia, WA by self-described communists and It’s Going Down (an…

When Narcissists Claim to be Victims of Narcissists – Who is the Narcissist?

Bye Bye Bernie

I wanted to believe. I went for Bernie Sanders early. I put my money where my mouth was. After all, I have never voted for a Clinton, and I have been uncomfortable with Hillary Clinton since the early days of the Bill Clinton era. I couldn’t imagine then how supporting welfare reform and the 1994 […]

Part of Her Body #SayHerName

There is bad news everyday. It is almost nonstop, really. Relentless. At some point, story after story after story about the Violence Men inflict on Women and Girls (and more often than not, erased by Passive “A Woman Was Killed” headlines), they all kind of blend together and become unseen. I live in Baltimore. I […]

#BaltimoreUprising

I have a lot of thoughts about Baltimore, but I am unable to put pen to paper at the moment. Here are some photographs. Here is a song about Baltimore. Consider making a donation to Youth Empowered Society.

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 […]

Toxic Sludge is Good for You

The most important book I have read about use of media and public relations to manipulate public opinion is Toxic Sludge Is Good for You.  If you are not familiar with this book, trust me, it is worth the read.  Essentially, the book details how powerful interests manipulate the media to get you to smoke […]
