Dishing Out the Consequence: Dead Men Don’t Rape

October 25, 2012 2 comments
I just found out that there are a group of men in Chico, CA who are abducting and raping women and girls. There have apparently been ten incidents so far, since August. I also learned that Chico State University responded by instructing female students not to walk alone at night. WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!! It’s those men who need to be run off the streets,...

The Grand Coverup

This article was first published in Moxie magazine, in 2000. In Afghanistan today, a woman is considered provocative if the wind blows her skirt above her ankle, and the price for such “lewdness” is acid thrown in her face. The fact is women have been covering up formen’s indecency for millennia, hiding our own bodies in deference to men’s...

Encourage True Girl Power

I get pissed that this society not only takes advantage of the vulnerability of girls and young women, but that it celebrates that predatory behavior. It delights in it.

My Face

Effeminated: Stripped raped exposed dumbed down numbed out terrorized into silence complacency painted over shaved away cast into hiding in her soul in her home in her head afraid to speak out to push back to roar with her mane wild in the wind because you have taken her word female feminine girl and you have defined her out of it so that she has to bend...

I Just Might Join the National Rifle Association

I just walked in the rain. I left after 11 pm, when women are supposed to stay inside. And stay inside they do! The only people I encounter in my late-night prowls are men. Save for the women escorted by said men. While I was walking, I was not only enjoying the rain, but also thinking about how, as a woman, I have to be vigilantly aware of my surroundings...
