    I analyzed ESPN’s latest Body Issue to see if the representation of female athletes has gotten any better. Spoiler: it’s complicated!

    I wrote: Not in My Name, about Israel’s massacre in Gaza.

    I also wrote (towards the end of this outfit post) about a fat-positive burlesque show I went to.

    Today in science- Prozac makes fish cheerful and confident, but turns clams into raging bivalve sex machines. It’s always the quiet ones…

    This week I addressed that NHS anti-rape poster.

    I also updated my feminist reading list with some lesbian films and novels, The Advocate’s 175 essential films for LGBT people, and some feminist theory 101 reading.

    In Pride, Ecumenism, Contraception, and Divorce, I take a look at how the first two relate to how churches should influence how they approach the last two.

    For National Immunization Awareness Month, we shared Care’s story. As a Peace Corps volunteer, she saw the devastation wrought by diseases like measles in West Africa — and when she returned home, she caught whooping cough in Texas. She can tell you from experience: Worldwide, vaccination matters.

    Also, if you want more links to click, we have a collection of headlines for you, including a profile of the amazing Willie Parker, one of Mississippi’s last abortion providers; articles about the conservatives’ war on contraception; pieces on the rapid shutdown of abortion clinics across Texas; and more.

    Women are still proclaiming they’re not feminists over at Tumblr…

    So why do women sometimes fight against their own interests? It’s an important question since it’s sometimes used to justify sexism.

    Why Would Women Grumble and Tumble Over Feminism?

    Side-by-side comparisons show how strange it looks when women and men get the same sex object treatment.

    A lot of people get “sexual objectification” confused with “sexy.” Why is objectification of problem?

    This week was my Silver Anniversary. So there are pictures, and presents. But I didn’t have the brainpower for introspection.

    Also, a cover reveal for a re-release

    This week on the blog, I wrote about coping with generalized anxiety, even when it feels unrelenting — Managing is an illusory concept.

    Our blog joined the call for the inclusion of all women – trans women are women – in the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival.

    I find it to be a distasteful form of bullying to harass people into stop reporting misconduct on Facebook or other forms of social media.

    When this woman shoved her car through a too small corner of the parking lot at the AMTRAK station, I immediately thought “TOWANDA!”

    I’ll have vinegar with my licorice tea, please.
