Anonymous asked: Just curious on your opinion about the difference between being sex-positive and being totally okay with our current sex-saturated media, if there is one at all. (I have an opinion on it, just like to know yours, and inevitably some followers' as well~)
Anonymous asked: Can I recommend Prime Suspect for the people who've been asking for feminist-friendly TV shows? Yeah, so far there's only been one episode of the US version (the UK version has Helen Mirren!), but it looks like it'll confront workplace sexism head-on so I'm optimistic.

Someone actually had an abortion — not a miscarriage, not an ectopic pregnancy, not a last-minute change of heart — on national television. The lengths TV shows will go to avoid having characters go through with abortions have become something of a running, not that funny...

zoearcher: Women love to clean; they love it so much, they wear nice clothes when scrubbing the toilet and they dance with their mops. Only women know how to clean or use cleaning products. The moment a man says his wedding vows, he becomes an infantilized moron with no judgment skills and incapable of the most basic decision making. Fortunately, their wives are also their mothers.

karnythia: soydulcedeleche: peecharrific: karnythia: I just had a convo with a parent at my son’s school about how she has to straighten her hair to keep her job. Like her white boss actually came to her & said her kinky hair is not professional enough. I told her what I could about resources for fighting back, but we’re in an at-will state & she’s a black single mom. I doubt...
