Anonymous asked: I'd like to let you know why I'm unfollowing you. I'm doing it because I am a proud Gender Studies student who works adamantly for social justice, all while trying to convince both academics and non-academics that we don't sit in class discussing what is and is not problematic all day. And this blog seems to be becoming more of a personal one (ie your most recent text post). I was hoping this might be a better reflection of Gender Studies as a whole, perhaps showing what's going on in the field.

ok love you bye

Are you ever going to give it up, asshole? I wonder what your mother would say, you sad fucking worm.

For my readers in the UK, the very amazing Indie film Frozen River is currently available on iplayer. 

Directed by a woman. Starring mostly women. Oscar-nominated. It’s probably in my top ten films ever. If you’ve got a free couple hours between now and Saturday, check it out.

Anonymous asked: Have you seen the photo's by a Chicago teen pregnancy campaign that show pregnant boys to underline shared responsibility. Are these photo's transphobic? Seeing a lot of disagreement in the comments section of the news and I'm not completely sure about this 1.

I hadn’t; i had to google it to find it, but after looking at the campaign—yes, i would agree it’s transphobic. 

Here’s a (Daily Mail) article on it, inc. pictures: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2325100/New-billboard-campaign-launched-Chicago-features-images-pregnant-boys-remind-baby-isnt-just-girls-responsibility.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

Anonymous asked: Could you provide a list of how abortion save lives and how it does not leave the person who had an abortion traumatized forever afterwards?Thanks:)

This took me literally less than two seconds on Google.

Recent studies that have been used to assert a causal connection between abortion and subsequent mental disorders are marked by methodological problems that include, but not limited to: poor sample and comparison group selection; inadequate conceptualization and control of relevant variables; poor quality and lack of clinical significance of outcome measures; inappropriateness of statistical analyses; and errors of interpretation, including misattribution of causal effects. By way of contrast, we review some recent major studies that avoid these methodological errors. The most consistent predictor of mental disorders after abortion remains preexisting disorders, which, in turn, are strongly associated with exposure to sexual abuse and intimate violence.”

And the great news is there’s a whole internet of research and data out there for you to investigate for yourself! THANKS AND HAVE FUN!
