Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Elizabeth Cady Stanton


If you are a woman living in America, you can thank Elizabeth Cady Stanton for your right to vote. She was a leading figure of the early women’s civil rights movement. The first women’s rights convention was held in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York. Elizabeth presented her Declaration of Sentiments at the convention and is considered the leader … Continue reading

Should we encourage guns in schools?


President Obama supports legislation banning assault weapons, along with other gun control measures. While I respect the President and our government, I don’t think banning weapons is necessarily the best option. Timothy McVeigh didn’t use a single firearm in his attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. However, he killed 168 innocent people, … Continue reading

“Legitimate rape” comments don’t pay off. Shocking, right?

“Legitimate rape” comments don’t pay off. Shocking, right?


It’s no secret that many politicians say absurd things about women’s reproductive rights. Apparently, voters don’t approve. Representative Todd Akin and Indiana Republican Senate hopeful Richard Mourdock lost their respective races last night. If you’re wondering, Akin was the guy who made the comments about a woman’s reproductive system shutting down and preventing pregnancy if … Continue reading

September 11, 2001


Apparently I have offended one of my followers by not writing a post about 9/11. My apologies. I’m a full time college student who works almost 30 hours a week. I don’t get paid to do this blog, nor do I any longer get school credit for it. I simply had other things on my plate. … Continue reading

“She Wants The D”


This is going be a brief post, so you’ll probably have to look at this link to sort a few things out for yourself.  There’s a Twitter account called “She Wants The D” (@SheeWantsYourD). If you don’t have a Twitter or aren’t up to date with teenage slang, you can read this to catch up. I’ve … Continue reading

Body image and the Olympics


I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really watch the Olympics, unless it’s the swimming or gymnastics. But I recently saw on Twitter where people were calling Zoe Smith fat. She’s a weightlifter, she’s not going to be tiny. People were saying she looked “lesbian” and like a “dyke.” So she told them that she … Continue reading

‘Zombies’ countered Westboro Baptist Church protesters

‘Zombies’ countered Westboro Baptist Church protesters


Westboro Baptist Church has been in the media a lot recently. Well, they’ve done it again. Last Friday, the church decided to hold one of its protests outside the Joint Base Lewis-McChord in DuPont, Washington. However, the protesters were met with a protest of their own. The event on Facebook was called “Zombie’ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY … Continue reading

Women & stereotypes


I’m about to take a second to break something down for y’all. Most men (not all, but the majority) and some women have this picture of womanhood in their heads. Women are wedding crazy and baby obsessed, right? Or if they’re not, they must be lesbian. Or maybe they’re a cougar because they’re dating a … Continue reading

Rock The Slut Vote 2012

Rock The Slut Vote 2012


Feminists and women right’s activists have banned together to form Rock The Slut Vote.  Rush Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” for testifying before Congress in support of contraceptives. Women everywhere are banning together to “diffuse” the disrespectful term. The founder of the movement wants to change the meaning of the word, so that it can’t be used to bully … Continue reading
