MacKinnon on street harassment …

“Unwelcome sex talk is an unwelcome sex act.  When threatening, severe, or pervasive enough, it works to exclude and segregate and denigrate and subordinate and dehumanize, violating human dignity and denying equality of opportunity.” Only Words, Catharine MacKinnon, p45

So good to put into words what’s so problematic about it! (It’s not just annoying, it’s not just bothersome, it’s not just we can’t take a compliment, and on and on…)

Davina Squirrel on needing male allies

“‘But we need male allies’ you cry in defence. Nope! We don’t. … ‘Male allies’ have had six thousand years or longer to get their shit together. They are from the ruling class after all, so have more impact than females. …” 


Date Preparation in a Male Supremacy

“Men worry that their date won’t measure up to their aesthetic preferences.  Women worry that they’re going to wind up dead.”

Great post:

Catharine MacKinnon on words and images …

“Words and images are how people are placed in hierarchies, how social stratification is made to seem inevitable and right, how feelings of inferiority and superiority are engendered, and how indifference to violence against those on the bottom is rationalized and normalized.” Only Words, p.31

The ReGender App – review copies available!

What if there was an app that could cloak you in a cross-gendered hologram?  And it had a voice modulation module?  Women could present as men and get better-paying jobs.  Men could present as women and get groped in the subway.  Cool.

Proof of Sexism

Read this:

Men have no idea how hard daily life is for women.  Women have no idea how hard daily life is for them either because they don’t know how easy it is for men.  Everyone should reverse for a week.  At least online.  If you’re male, use a female name; and if you’re female, use a male name.  See what happens. 

What we say is very telling

Gender Fraud: a fiction – new novel – review copies available!

I hope that ‘gender recognition’ legislation, which reveals a failure to differentiate between sex and gender and, with respect to sex, a denial of the definitive role of chromosomes, will soon be repealed.

I fear that this horror story will take its place.

Review copies (free) are available (obligating you merely to CONSIDER writing a review; you may decide not to). Please send requests to (indicating your preference — pdf, epub, or mobi).
