Worse than Wrong: A Voice for Men resorts to phony screenshots and outright lying to avoid admitting embarrassing error

via man boobz: When reputable publications, online or off, make a mistake, the editors grit their teeth, swallow their embarrassment, and run a correction. Men’s Rights hate hub A Voice for Men has somewhat more lax standards than reputable publications, or even not-so-reputable publications, and generally prefers to deal with its errors by pretending they never […]

I Don’t Want To Have To Deal With Racism In Order To Support LGBTQ White People

via Gradient Lair: In the last several years, I’ve found it very difficult to talk to many LGBTQ White people. Everything I learn about LGBTQ experiences is primarily from LGBTQ Black people and other ones of colour. Because I am a cisgender heterosexual Black woman, often times LGBTQ White people approach me with the assumption that […]

No matter how many times he did […]

“So Raped” by Megan McFoley

via The Rumpus.net: For a long March week all we see is Steubenville. The cold won’t let up, and the headlines don’t stop: Teen boys, photos, drunk girl, rape. There’s no escaping the story, partly because mainstream media outlets screw up—they chastise the bone-headedness of the rapists’ inadvertent cell phone confessions, as if that were their primary misstep, […]

Why Society Still Needs Feminism

Via  Feminism is Fantastic: Because to men, a key is a device to open something. For women, it’s a weapon we hold between our fingers when we’re walking alone at night. Because the biggest insult for a guy is to be called a “pussy,” a “little bitch” or a “girl.” From here on out, being […]
