This dude probably thinks he’s doing women a service

What starts out as a banal lifestyle piece: You’ve heard it before, but I’m not going to browbeat you about the immorality of going all the way on the first night. I’m also not going to say, as the London Telegraph does, that you’re likely to drive away relationship material…

Social Security is not our biggest problem

One of the few problems I had with Michelle Goldberg’s book The Means of Reproduction is that she indulged the argument that while developing nations need to reduce their population, developed nations need to increase ours, an argument that comes straight from the hyperventilating anti-sex, misogynist hard right. It’s true…

How to write a popular online article

Step one: Fulfill some stereotype that sexist men have about women, especially those who they think are trying to have their feminist cake and eat it with a side of dependence and chivalry. Ideally, you get pregnant to trap a man into paying child support. As this doesn’t really happen,…

Boobie jokes

Catching up on my blog reading, I read this post at Hoyden About Town that was both depressing and interesting, about how there’s a minor panic on the blogs because it was revealed that Salma Hayek is breastfeeding a 13 month old baby. To calm, rational people, the response to…

Anti-choice stereotypes

This new video is about the various nasty stereotypes that anti-choicers have about women, and why they’re bullshit. Considering that “women are stupid” has made its way into a Supreme Court decision, this isn’t small stuff. RH Reality Check: Anti-Choice Stereotypes from RH Reality Check on Vimeo. Considering that the…

Please people

Update, because a few decent people are confused: I was trying to let off some steam with a funny rant, and if you don’t get it, I’m sorry that I failed in making that more obvious. What this has to do with feminism is that the blog is getting swarmed…

Why topless beauty pagents matter

Gloria Feldt links McCain’s open hostility towards his wife with his larger hostility towards women. This moment has really exposed the lip-smacking piety on the right as the base sexism it is—if “pro-life” Christians do better at biker rallies that hold up women for lust-driven ridicule than they do at…

Choads thwarted by teenage girls

Girls have caught up to boys in math scores. The first sign of crankery, by the way, is when you maintain the conclusion, and just change your arguments, after your initial “proofs” are proven wrong. The idea that women are inherently worse than men at math has been a mainstay…

Nice Guys® still not vindicated

As you read this, I’m in transit to Hollywood to film an interview for a documentary about the chastity movement. To no one’s big surprise, I’m against it, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is blogging may be spotty until Thursday morning, when I’ve safely returned from Gomorrah-on-the-Pacific.…

Nope, really is misogyny

Apparently, “moral” refusal laws extend to EMT workers, who are allowed to refuse to give women who are in emergency situations rides to the hospital if they have reason to believe that the doctor will do an emergency termination to save a woman’s life. I continue to be annoyed at…
