Exhibit number one billion in the case of Stupid People v. Yes, Sexism Is Still a Thing: turns out, no matter how good girls are at math, teachers still might be biased against them in the classroom.
Not a surprise that some homophobic people are gay..
Well let’s just add Mississippi to the list of states I refuse to move to. Of course, it was already pretty much off my list considering I will be marrying a black man and as a white woman, people have some certain views about our interracial relationship. Obviously, I will never generalize to an entire population and I’m sure there exist some Mississippi liberals, but they’re in the minority.
What’s seriously depressing about this article is for one, there’s only ONE abortion clinic in Mississippi. So much for safe and free abortions as made legal by federal law. If abortion is legal, why is it so scarcely available? And then, why in the world would Mississippi lawmakers want to make laws requiring abortion clinics to provide services that they simply cannot in the guise of “protecting women’s health”.
Even MORE depressing is that women can’t even cross the state line to get an abortion. The other states bordering Mississippi have 24 hour waiting periods. So, if you’re poor and have an unplanned pregnancy, you need to find a way to save up money to travel to a neighboring state TWICE while taking off work in order to get an abortion. Great. Just great Mississippi.
Ohio Senator Nina Turner is the best ever. My new hero.
The mainstream media picked this up! Thank goodness! I’ve been writing about this for the past few years and this inequity causes me great sadness. Suspension and expulsion do not work. They simply remove the student from the classroom, which allows the student to avoid the school work they may not wish to do and allows the teacher to not have to eduate the student who they deem “disruptive”.
My new favorite politician. Oklahoma Senator Judy Eason McIntyre holds a sign at a pro-choice rally yesterday that reads, “If I wanted the government in my womb, I’d fuck a Senator.” (It’s too bad, though, that the mainstream press seems focused on this particular sign rather than the fact that so many people came out to protest the awful personhood bill.
I love this. This is so true.
This article is enlightening to me personally. I don’t know whether I’ll be a mother in the future, but the thought is always followed up with “do I want boys or girls?” Of course, these things cannot be planned, but people assume by being a girl or a boy, you have distinct personality traits. As a feminist, I am aware that I could give birth to a boy and one day he may decide that he is in fact a girl. Or, I could give birth to a girl who may act in stereotypically masculine ways. There are so many different emotions and varying personalities that it is impossible to predict a child’s future based on sex alone.
I will just resign myself to be excited about whatever gendered child I am able to give birth to (or adopt) and allow them to express their personality in whatever way they feel.
There was a time, not that long ago, when interracial marriage in the U.S. was a completely illegal no-no. Well, flash forward to a half-century or so later, and the picture looks completely different.
Foster Friess, who is the main donor to the SuperPAC propping up Rick Santorum’s Presidential run, appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell today, where he offered some great, cheap birth control advice for “the gals” out there—
