Dick Dox Your Rapist

I was casually scrolling through the internet the other evening when I came upon a post that was emblazoned with the warning, “LOCAL RAPIST.” It was an eye-catching post, and upon further examination I realized that the picture of the dangerous local rapist was someone that I knew peripherally through bars here in Oakland. It was one of those moments that made me feel like, “Woah, what the hell happened here?” because as a woman...

Do You Want A Better Hook Up Culture, America?

0 Comments 🕔19 Aug 2015

In a recent article for Vanity Fair — which basically reads like a self-pitying search for the validation of monogamy in the modern era — the writer posits that hook up culture is an empty land filled with rapid hook ups and bad sex. While modern technology has given many of us the means to have rapid fire casual sex, sleeping with multiple people a week, eschewing emotional involvement, and veering towards female disempowerment, the fact of the...

Poisonous Nostalgia: A Pagan Witch’s Guide to Burying ‘The Craft’ Cult

Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It’s a thing that makes you answer the phone when you see an ex-love’s name pop up — and you meet that person again conveniently blipping on all the reasons why you stopped talking in the first place. It makes you long for certain fashions or styles that you remember being so attractive and flattering but when you actually pull the idealized items out of the closet you wonder if...

Since When Was Feminism About Clickbait, Column Inches And Kim Kardashian?

0 Comments 🕔13 Aug 2015

To paraphrase that great bastion of women’s rights, Ernest Hemingway, it happened first very slowly, then all at once. Feminism, once a dirty word, then a cool one, then a reassuringly popular one, then a mawkish fridge magnet-type one, has nigh-on eaten itself. It goes without saying that feminism is still amazing, and equality is still amazing, but I’m becoming increasingly uncomfortable with seeing it as an appendage with which to make a concept cooler,...

Why I Won’t Send My Kids to Catholic School, and Other Rants on the Sanctity of Marriage

My friend and I were sitting in a café talking about sex. The topic of the day: women who have never had orgasms. My friend had known a few. “The thing is, none of them even masturbate,” she said. “Maybe they are ashamed,” I said, “People will still tell you that masturbation is shameful. I went to a confirmation class in Catholic school, and they told me that masturbating would make sex with my eventual...

An Open Letter To Those Against The Amnesty International Draft Proposal To Decriminalize Sex Work

0 Comments 🕔06 Aug 2015

Last week, a draft proposal by Amnesty International, which called for the global decriminalization of sex work, leaked. It was met with immediate opposition by the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, in a letter signed by many celebrities and public figures, including Lena Dunham, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and, perhaps most disturbing, Gloria Steinem. CATW does vital work, providing aid to survivors of sexual exploitation, educating communities, and advocating for...

Great Moments In Historical Sluttery: Calamity Jane, Woman Myth of the Wild Frontier

0 Comments 🕔05 Aug 2015

The true facts of the life of Martha “Calamity” Jane Canary may never be clear. Scholars, showmen, and screenwriters have all put their thumbprints on the story of this remarkable woman figure of the Wild West, and Jane herself contributed plenty of myths to the mix. The combination of fact and fiction that survives today tells the story of a bold woman associated with one of the most notorious cities in American history: Deadwood, South Dakota. Calamity...

Hating Me Less So I Can Love Everyone More: A Story About Overcoming Internalized Misogyny

When I was a young girl, I had a hard time understanding the dynamics between my female peers and the way they treated each other. For one, I can’t recall ever feeling incredibly “girlish” — at least not in the way it seemed like most other girls did. I always felt awkward and out of place. Looking back now, I can see how a lot of those feelings were a result of growing up in...
