there is literally not a single pronoun or gender identifier of any kind in the post
there are hundreds of comments on this post referring to me as ‘he’ and you are the first to call that out. thank you
Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (9.29.14): At around 1:30AM CST, the police have released the unjustly arrested protesters. This is still some of the most ridiculous shit I’ve ever seen, but at least folks are back out and headed home to their families. The struggle continues. No justice, no peace! #staywoke #farfromover (PT I) (PT II) (PT III)

Happy birthday, bell hooks!
During my time in the Air Force in the early 2000s, I remember regularly seeing Fox on the TV at work and hearing Limbaugh’s angry rants blasting from the radio. Now imagine being a woman in this atmosphere in the last few years, when Limbaugh repeatedly labeled Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” and Fox hosts referred to a female pilot as “boobs on the ground” and suggested she “couldn’t park” her jet. Add that to the fact that many of these shows are aired on bases around the world using taxpayer money, and the situation quickly becomes too much to stomach …
Now put the right wing’s misogynistic messaging into the context of rampant sexual assault in the military, with an estimated 26,000 incidents in 2012, and it creates one very ugly picture. The normalization of the sexual objectification of women, which is actively encouraged by conservative media figures, only makes it more difficult for women in the military to fight the well-documented “invisible war.” If one has the ability to reduce women to mere objects to be used for amusement, what’s to stop them from hitting or raping a fellow service member, particularly if he thinks that he will face little punishment for his actions?Fox host Eric Bolling may have apologized for his remarks, but that doesn’t erase his participation in the disturbing right-wing trend of encouraging the deep-seated culture of misogyny in the military. This was far from an isolated incident. If conservative media outlets truly want to “support the troops,” then they will change the way they talk about women, in the military or otherwise. Given how many women currently serve our country, it’s more important than ever to truly appreciate their contributions to the defense of our country if we hope to maintain a fully functioning, unified military force that’s capable of handling serious threats to our national security.

a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.
This was posted in the #WhichWomen group by Professor Guglielmo but I thought people on tumblr may also be interested in attending this event:

When I was starting high school me and my friends didn't understand feminism and vaguely perpetuated misogyny by saying things like girls are catty, boys are just better and now we're starting college and last night we were talking about an ex and we were like yeah boys suck. But girls suck too. Everyone in between also sucks. The world just sucks but at least we see now that it's not because of gender or sexuality
wow. what a nuanced way of looking at the world.
