Twitter grilled on policy approach that reinforces misogyny

Twitter has faced a barrage of awkward questions from the U.K. parliament over its ongoing failure to tackle violent abuse targeted at women.  Katy Minshall, the social media platform’s head of U.K. government public policy, admitted it needs to do more to safeguard women users — but claimed the company is “acutely aware” of the problems women experience on Twitter, saying it’s in the process of reviewing how it applies its policies to fix its long-running misogyny problem.  “We are...

Owner of civil war reenactment business sues school district that canceled field trips after his far-right social media came to light

Riley's Farm is a staple of Los Angeles overnight school trips (my daughter visited last year with her elementary school); it's an apple farm with a pick-your-own apples sideline that branched out into civil war re-enactments, with some students staying overnight in tents. The farm's owner, James Riley, uses his Facebook and Twitter accounts to air Trumpian political views that complain about "black supremacy" ("If there's a problem in America today, it's BLACK supremacy.

Outsmarting the Auteur: Reassigning Power in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Marnie'

None Is Alfred Hitchcock's 1964 film, Marnie a sex story? a mystery? a detective story? a romance? a story of a thief? a love story?

United Nations: too many women are being killed by their loved ones at home

Despite gains over the past century in the area of equal rights, equal pay and, in some regions, not having some assclown with a penis dictate what they do with their bodies, women, on the whole, still hold the short end of a very shitty stick. While men might feel safest and most comfortable inside the walls of their home, a new report from The United Nations has reiterated what far too many woman already know: the place that women call home is more dangerous than anywhere else they might roam....

How medical bullshit and authority helped Larry Nassar get away with it

Larry Nassar, the USA Gymnastics doctor who sexually assaulted hundreds of young girls, will spend the rest of his life in jail. USA Gymnastics circled the wagons and shredded the files, and as a result it's hard to understand details of how it faciliated and protected Nassar. But Kerry Howley's startling article in The New Yorker shows how important medical bullshit was to his strategy and how the fraternal relationship between medical and administrative authority covered for him. 17-year-old...

Has “feminism” beaten “complicity” or are feminists complicit too?

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionaries,“Feminism” is Word of the Year 2017,” as announced by a headline in The Guardian. “Complicit” was a strong runner-up in Merriam-Webster’s Competition though, and came in first place on the list. Both “feminism” and “complicit” have been around for some time, so it is not as if 2017 gave birth to either word. Feminism came on top both because of a number of significant spikes in searches as well as a general increase in usage. According to ...

'A Brief History of Feminism' Tells It and Shows It Like It Is

Curiously, some of the most era-defining landmarks in the history of feminism tend to take place during times of intense political or social resistance to feminist ideals. Since 2010, for example, we witnessed Malala Yousafzai defy the Taliban's prohibition against educating girls; we heard Chimamanda Adichie's spine-tingling manifesto "We Should All Be Feminists"; we witnessed global superstars Beyoncé and Taylor Swift openly endorse the word "feminist". At the same time, however, a self...
