Book Recommendation! I have always felt that it's not so simple as some popular science books and authors would have you believe and it turns out, it's really not that simple.Read More
I was contacted with a request to share a link to a guide written by Sara Levavi-Eilat how women can protect themselves online. Upon inspection, this seems like a very useful reource and I am sharing an introduction to it, with a request that you read it directly on vpnmentor.com to learn more and share it on social media with your friends.Read More
First, let's get some things straight. A person might cringe and disapprove of feminism while simultaneously having no clue what feminism actually is. So, let's see what the definition is:
1: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
2: organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests
Note how neither definition contains anything about hating men, lowering the status or the rights of men, practising witchcraft or destroying the foundations of society – although it would imply challenging some of those foundations, namely ones that women and girls should be quiet and obedient and similar nonsense of the patriarchy.
So, under definition one, I am definitely a feminist. To completely honest, I do not participate in any organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests. Yes, this is a failing. I should try to at least get out to join a protest or a march when it's close. This is, in my opinion, the very least each of us should do in order to try and have a better world.
Historically, men have always had power over women. Feminism simply wants to change that. It's not that difficult.Read More
Let me just repeat author's warning before the video. Content Warning: This educational episode contains graphic sexual and violent game footage.
In this video from Feminist Frequency (site) host, Anita Sarkeesian takes notice how game developers tend to create non-playable sexualized female characters whose only function is to add some substance to the background of these games and to keep presumably straight-white males interested.
I highly recommend you take 30 minutes of your time and watch this video, even if you're not into games. I promise it will remind you how we as human beings take some things too lightly, without thinking them through. And if it helps to do that, I'd say it's 30 minutes well spent.Read More
People have always been afraid of change. Here and now is not perfect, but it is stable. It is reliable. It is dependable. The future may seem strange and unknown and scary and it might include things that make you uncomfortable, it might include things you personally do not like. But please try to see past that and try to have faith in humanity.Read More
Let this be a lesson to you: always try to save anything important. Especially if it’s in writing, you never know when you might need it and what you might lose by not saving it.
Such was the case with this entertaining discussion on Instagram. Discussion was about whether consent to sex is a consent to pregnancy. Long story short, I posted the image above on Instagram.
During this discussion this person blocked my account, so this means I cannot see her account anymore and cannot reply to her. The only way to continue discussion would be for me to use a secondary account. And that is beyond pathetic, so I will not do that.Read More
A lot of people really are acting like they can read minds, like they know absolutely everything about everybody. One of the ways these people are revealed is when they come across a nude or half nude or … almost any photo where a woman’s skin is showing. It can almost be guaranteed that someone (a man or a woman, it doesn’t matter – although it’s usually men) will comment something like:
Well, of course she’s naked. That’s how you earn money if you don’t have any other talents.
