I like to repost great things from great people. This time it’s a TED talk by a teenage feminist and editor called Tavi Gevinson.

The Disney movie Tangled that I reviewed a while back is apparently not well liked by the Christian fundies. (What do they like?) A few days ago the blog Love, Joy, Feminism posted a list of four blogposts; two from that crowd, and two replies. Since it was just a short list of links, I’ll repost […]

Last Sunday some of the more extremist of these people even bombed a clinic in Wisconsin, USA. It isn’t the first time. Of course, they are not all crazy lunatics. Some […]
