Feminist Friday: The dreaded job-hunt

There comes a time in every feminist’s life where he or she must take a break from fighting the patriarchy to succumb to it. I’m talking about job-hunting, and specifically in this case the dreaded post-college job-hunt. Like many other (soon to be alum) Niners, I am in the throws of what may be the […]

Drink of the week: Red Bull Cherry Edition

We are in the downward slope of the semester. Professors are starting to talk about final exams and papers, and long nights in the library or by the light of a desk lamp are quickly approaching. That being said, caffeine consumption across campus is skyrocketing. If you’re not in the mood for a coffee or […]

Feminist Friday: Loving the Day of Love

As a feminist, a lot of times we’re expected to dislike Valentine’s Day. On the surface, there is plenty of reason to hate Feb. 14, and all of the red and pink things that it stands for. Fight the patriarchy, they say. Abandon heteronormativity, they suggest. Maybe I’m a bad feminist, but I actually like […]

Feminist Friday: Body shaming for everyone

I turned on my television Thursday morning with the sole intent to flip over the Netflix immediately (current obsession is Ghost Adventures. I love it). When the TV powered up, the very first thing I see is a giant picture of Kim Kardashian with three giant “W”s on her breasts and lower levels. No, I’m […]

Feminist Friday: Ryan Gosling for feminism

When Danielle Henderson began the Feminist Ryan Gosling blog in October 2011, I went gaga. I’ve been crushing on the Gos since, goodness, my early teens.

Feminist Friday: Pedophilia, assault and more

Good news, fellow feminists! Feminism causes pedophilia and abuse to significant others. Or at least that’s what Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke said last week. Burke, the highest-ranked American Cardinal during the previous pope’s tenure, says that when women in the Church are feminists, it creates a “man crisis” and pushes men toward reclaiming their masculinity […]

Inside the shadowland

Leaves crunch underfoot walking up the paved road toward the historical and abandoned old campus of what was once called the Stonewall Jackson Manual Training and Industrial School.
