I know it’s depressing but the only thing to do is to still fight. I wasn’t kidding when I posted how proud I am of the ACLU. Nearly every state ACLU is doing voter rights and registrations and you could volunteer with that to help register voters for November. You can also donate money to the ACLU who has been… Read more
We went to the labor strike in Washington Square Park to listen to radical feminists of color talk about individual issues such as the NYC stripper’s strike, the strike in West Virginia, the oppression of Palestinian women by the occupation, etc! We did that for the two hours we would have been blogging. It felt… Read more
Then shouldn’t people who DO have that luxury do what they can to stand in solidarity with/for their sisters who cannot? I don’t know about you, but I feel as though I have a responsibility to stand up for/help people who don’t have the same access to certain privileges that I do. I don’t believe in leaving all of… Read more

I always use Joanna Rothkopf’s own KEDSUM 200PCS ADHESIVE CABLE CLIPS, WIRE CLIPS, CAR CABLE ORGANIZER, CABLE WIRE MANAGEMENT, DROP CABLE CLAMP WIRE CORD TIE HOLDER FOR CAR, OFFICE AND HOME to affix my feminist patches to my clothing. That makes me extra feminist.
Trump looks like a political cartoonist drew him, thought the caricature was too exaggerated, crumpled the sketch into a ball and threw it away. Later, under deadline, he said “Eh, fuck it, good enough” fished the sketch out of the wastebasket, smoothed it out with his hands and sent it in. Read more
Nobody is saying what this is really about - self-deportations. The government is well aware that it lacks the resources to round up over 10 million people. It simply cannot do it.
