A lot of times when I read about women’s rights issues — everything from rape culture to clueless men being ignoramuses to major corporations pushing oppressive and outdated gender-bashing agendas — I want to write about them for Cartoon Heart, but I get so full of feminist She-Hulk rage that I can barely see straight, much less type a coherent sentence. So instead of trying to get past my blind anger to comment on these items, I’m just going to assemble them here so you can rage with me:
– Richard Dawkins thinks he has the right to tell American women whether or not we should feel oppressed. Edited to add: Here is a great blog post about this situation.
– We already know those fuckers over at the Westboro Baptist Church are totally fucking crazy, but now someone over there is claiming that “anybody who defines themself as a feminist probably doesn’t have the, um, a proper fear of the lord.”
– This woman is writing an advice book for teenage girls. As if teenage girls need any more of this type of advice.
What kind of things are sending you into a feminist rage lately?
