The National Women’s Council of Ireland is about to launch its bold new program, No Woman Left Behind. The plan reflects the NWIC’s ambition of achieving ‘true equality for all women’ and seeks to ‘bring a radical shift to the place of women in Ireland and beyond’. The plan appears, on the face of … Continue reading REBLOG: So Many Women Left Behind
To the directors and trustees, We write to you as concerned readers and authors. Originally, the Women’s Prize was established to recognise the contribution of female writers who were overlooked by other major literary awards. The founder launched it in response to the all-male shortlist for the 1991 Booker Prize. Over the years, the Women’s … Continue reading Open letter to the Women’s Prize
A sledge and a crowbar has written an epic response to Denise Balkissoon at the Globe and Mail here, where Denise opens her article with this phrase.... Whatever the dictionary definition of “woman” might read, it’s always been an evolving, contentious term. Really? Really, Denise? When a male shouts at me that my ass gives … Continue reading The term, “woman” is evolving. Am I a doorknob? A piece of cheese? A cup? Only men know, because women are always evolving into different things!
I was thinking of writing a little about man logicks, which is the backward "reasoning" of males combined with their violent insistence on their own "superiority" (lol) and their hysterical lies and manipulations that they support systemically and attempt to pass off as truths. When I say that their "reasoning" is backwards, what I mean … Continue reading Lesphobia in Evo Psych, aka Male Logicks is Faulty and No One is Shocked
Solidarity to you from a radfem sister in the States. I support you!
I was in the process of writing a longer article around the events at the Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday, but I am also trying to stay on top of the rest of my life while dealing with the horrendous bullying of people around me which is underway by some trans activists and allies. I have been traumatised by my experiences on Saturday and by events since, resulting in a lack of sleep and inability to concentrate. I wanted to complete the longer article, but as lies are being circulated by those who attacked me, I feel I have to put out a shorter statement now.
When I refer to trans activists in this statement I mean people who are activists on trans issues, I do not mean that all of them were trans, nor that they represent the views of all trans identifying people. For those who don’t know what…

BOOM. That is the sound of purplesage dropping the mic because DAMN. This post is epic.
The irony. It is just astounding.
Nomorepapertowels, which is a blogger that I adore, wrote an excellent piece about racism and misogyny. Here is a part of it: "It is no accident that white supremacists are notoriously sexist, anti-feminist, anti-abortion, and demand “traditional Christian values” be respected and tolerated. Those are the exact same social practices that created white supremacy in … Continue reading White Supremacy and Misogyny
Looking back on my posts so far, I realise I have written a lot about how liberal feminists are failing other women, and relatively little about the root cause of the miserable state the planet is in: Men.
There is a reason for that. Men are utterly unimportant to me. There is nothing to be expected from them.Writing about what anti-feminist women and men should do is pointless. Anti-feminist women make choices I can only view with disgust and contempt; a sentiment that without a doubt is mutual. And men? Men can’t change.
Their fundamental set-up is faulty. When a man does horrible things to girls and women, he is doing what his very nature commands him to do. Men can’t be reformed, they can’t be reasoned with, and they can’t be fixed. They are not broken.Their lack of intelligence, depth and human emotion is built-in. Even ″matriarchal″ societies suffer…
