I have the pleasure of having been included in the latest Doctor Who anthology from Mad Norwegian Press, which is available NOW wherever books are sold! Click the link above to read all about it! :)
I love every. Single. Thing about this story.
I’ve gotta say, this is pretty damn cool. I hope this doctor’s wife LAUGHED IN HIS FACE when he got home. ;)
A really interesting article by a female director/screenwriter about how Hollywood (and the general public) react to the visual of women in power.
So, this dude actually tried to sue CBS for sexual discrimination. Because a job he applied for (waaaaaah!) was being reserved for a woman.
Of course, the assumption being that he was SO insanely qualified, that it would be IMPOSSIBLE to find a WOMAN as qualified to take the job. And that’s “unfair.”
This kind of stuff happens all the time. Yes, it’s happened to me. One day, I might even write about it. But for now, read unwinona’s story…
And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important. Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman. How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in everyday life….
Yes. Yes to the entirety of this article at Hello Giggles.
“The NBA has been around since 1946, so there’s the association with teams as a part of city pride that allow for a much more deep-rooted history than the newer WNBA founded in 1996. However, we’re coming down on something because it’s newer and less popular, yet earned and justifiably deserved as this country had a lack of female representation in professional sports. We asked for this kind of progress. They represent us as a nation and as women with the freedom to do what they love, and that’s as backward thinking as a suffragist saying she’d rather watch the men vote because they look all strong and serious punching in those little holes. We need these women.”
I’ve been to one Liberty game when I was living in New York and it was so much fun. Would’ve loved to go to more (much like I’d love to go see more roller derby), but I’m just that broke. What’s funny is that while I’m not “into sports,” I always am more into them when it’s women playing. I’m not a “soccer fan” but I love Women’s Soccer. I’m not a “basketball fan,” but I love the WNBA. I love roller derby. I think that says something huge. I think it says that there are probably many girls and women who aren’t “into sports” because they think there’s nothing for them there. They could be sports fans if they could see themselves in it, not necessarily because they want to play, but because they can see someone LIKE them play.
Support women’s sports.
I’m honored to have met this woman. Read this, please.
This post comes with a trigger warning for rape and sexual assault that should be visible from space.
Rape. From the Latin, ‘rapere,’ to take or snatch. Usual meaning: to penetrate another person’s body sexually without their consent. From the Sexual Offences Act, 2003: “A is guilty…
Oh, Ann Coulter. I think it’s so cute how you try so hard to stay relevant by saying any damn fool thing that comes into your head. It’s adorable, really.
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter on Wednesday said that President Barack Obama was campaigning with women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke because his base was “stupid single women.”
