Jessica Jones, or how to make a tv show about trauma

I was excited but nervous when Marvel and Netflix announced their Jessica Jones series. I knew the source material, knew sexual violence was central to the story, and I was worried about what the adaptation would be. TV has not had a great track record with stories about rape – often featuring gratuitous scenes and […]

The Grope-O-Pedia

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a human being in possession of breasts will be groped the bejesus out of. Human beings not in possession of breasts also get groped a lot, but in my experience there is something about breasts that attracts hands like honey attracts flies, or, I don’t know, like human […]

So, what do you think of “Jessica Jones”?

Guys. This weekend I got a puppy. Her name is Margot and she is a 2.5 pound pomchi rescue from North Carolina. She is a little nervous to be in a new place, cries whenever I leave the room, and is not yet big enough for a walk outside. But Margot is undoutbedly the love […]

Tweet of the Day: @xtraxtralex on skepticism of survivors

  This tweet came across my social media feed this week and I felt like I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to remind folks exactly how sexism and rape culture are working in our world. In the midst of Bill Cosby rape allegations and debates, policies that force rape survivors to legitimate their experiences by utilizing […]

Watch: This Transgender Day of Remembrance, Cherno Biko mourns murdered trans women

Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. Each year, TDoR is a reminder to mourn trans people who died from anti-trans violence and to commit ourselves to ending the murderers and supporting the living. This year, official records indicate 22 trans women in the U.S. have been murdered. The actual number is surely much higher; the deaths of trans people have historically […]

Only children, and our families’ choices

After so many years of making small talk with strangers, I can subconsciously rattle off those introductory and intrusive getting-to-know-you questions, mostly about how to pronounce my name and “where I’m really from.” But eventually, the stranger will ask if I have siblings and I’ll respond: “No, I’m actually an only child.”’ Ninety-two percent of the […]

A few questions on mourning and the Paris attacks

I’ve tried collecting my thoughts on the violence in Paris, the concurrent erasure of Muslim death, the inevitable attacks on Muslim women, and the blue, white, and red Facebook pictures that cover my newsfeed now.  I can’t do it just yet. I’ve sifted through think piece after think piece hoping to find one that can effectively respond […]

Bearing Witness: Feminists must step up for climate justice

The environmental movement was never my movement. I grew up in a part of the country where we recycled and composted before it became more mainstream, and where you could buy “green” just about anything. Yet listening to presentations on green fashion and chemical-free cosmetics, I had the distinct impression that this movement cared more […]
