The F Word: from Meghan Murphy, “Of course pornography is a prisoner’s right. Because women aren’t actually human beings.”

I Blame the Patriarchy: “A bit of lighthearted fun”. . . so it’s on consent and PIV, of course!

Echidne of the Snakes: “The Elizabeth Warren Case”. . . on Elizabeth Warren, who essentially created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, being passed over for Obama’s nomination to lead it. Who got it? A dude with the same exact views as Warren.

Woman on a Journey: “Are t-shirts a women’s right? (Or, maybe they’d rather we go topless)” . . . on the creator of woman-born-woman shirts being threatened into stopping production.

Twanzphobic Since Forever: “Excuse me, which way to the Squirrel Bathroom?” . . . seriously commit this sentence to memory:

Any so-called internal identity that requires any form of external validation, is not an internal identity at all.

Cherryblossomlife: “Manufacturing GID” . . . on how ‘gender presentation’ is totally dependent on people buying a bunch of shit.

Femonade: “Strange Days”. . . on the horrific songs/videos for Rihanna’s S&M and Katy Perry’s E.T.

Newsweek: “The Growing Demand for Prostitution”. . . on a new study about ‘users’ of prostitutes and pornography [TW for sexual violence]. Perhaps the saddest part:

“We had big, big trouble finding nonusers,” Farley says. “We finally had to settle on a definition of non-sex-buyers as men who have not been to a strip club more than two times in the past year, have not purchased a lap dance, have not used pornography more than one time in the last month, and have not purchased phone sex or the services of a sex worker, escort, erotic masseuse, or prostitute.”
