“I don’t think being post-racial is a worthy ideal. . . I think we should be fully comfortable with seeing somebody of a different ethnicity, and recognizing that they are. The problem comes when we make irrational assumptions after we notice that. . . Forget race, and look at gender. I don’t think most women..

http://jeffbethke.com/a-few-thoughts-on-women-men-porn-sexual-assault I don’t entirely agree with Jefferson Bethke’s position on sex and pornography, but I do appreciate the rest of this video. In particular, I think he raises a great point about the fact that it is oppressive and damaging when people talk about rape victims as “someone’s daughter” or “someone’s sister”; it takes away..

A friend recently posted an article titled “Modesty, Beauty and Men.  What Should We Care?”. Here are some of my thoughts on the article: Unfortunately, I find this article really problematic in a lot of ways.

In September of 2012, I made a speech at SlutWalk Winnipeg. The speech was about a lot of things, not least of all my experiences with victim-blaming. I spoke about hot the perpetrator blamed me (because my “body language was asking for it”). I spoke about how law enforcement blamed me (because “my social media..

When I saw that there was an art exhibit at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Women, Violence and Art, titled “Off the Beaten Path” I knew I wanted to go.  I intentionally altered my schedule in Winnipeg so that I could attend the exhibit on opening day (and because there was a World Vision event..

Sometimes I feel like I am basically a walking contraction. I thrive off of teamwork and being around other people, but I am an introvert that experiences social anxiety regularly in large-group situations. I love being awake early and feel more accomplished when my day runs from 7am-10pm, but I do my “best thinking” in..
