Dead Wild Roses: Video Gaming: Misogynistic Harassment is the Wheelhouse of Losers.

Women in video games, destroying men’s lives everywhere!!! Spending your time harassing people just doesn’t seem like productive or pro-social behavioural choices.  According to a study recently undertaken it seems there is a positive correlation between unskilled players and the amount of abuse they heap on other players, especially females. “Some male players, however — ...

Dead Wild Roses: Street Harassment – Because the Lived Experience of Being Female in Public is Different

Part of the reason why feminist analysis is such a valuable tool is that FA deconstructs and identifies the constructed norms of society and rightly points out how craptacular said norms are for women.

Dead Wild Roses: 2014 is not a good year to be a teenage girl – Clara Bennathan

Dead Wild Roses: Dudely Wisdom cirra 1975 – Susan Brownmiller

    I’m finishing Brownmiller’s book, Against our Will.  Funny how the arguments really have not changed and are still regularly trotted out by ‘feminist allies’ and critics here in 2012.  As Brownmilla concludes, she thoroughly brings the noise and lays it all down on the table with bon mots like this: “Critics of the women’s ...
