don't want to wake up with no one beside me. don't want to take up with nobody new.

pnkrokhockeymom points out that feminism is not about men.

Man, there's a sentiment that could get some airplay.

Civil rights activism is not about white people. Gay rights activism is not about straight people. Ad nauseum.

Also, go look at the original post and the postcard at Feministe.

NB: The part that is about men: male writers? Understanding the naked terror and righteous wrath (conscious and actualized or subliminal and unprocessed) the madonna/whore complex evokes in many western women will help you write better female characters.


Actually, I rather believe I've known a few men who would understand that sentiment, as well.

And now I promise to stop spamming lj and go read a book.
