2. last night i was reminded of the disgusting sexism on superbowl. i googled and

found a step up on the blatant, in your fuckin face, pornification of women. i was so disgusted and angry. they have ruined the superbowl for so many. it is a fun time in our home. i have a hubby and two sons that want to jsut have fun with it. i want to have fun with them. what i saw in the commercials last night was beyond.

pornifying in at least one commercial, i think of the families sitting in front of their tvs with their kids, just wanting to have fun, being fed this garbage.

thank you so much for this. at least it is something we can do. this year is going to be bad.

5. Women are fighting back now.

Many of us are fed up. Including Beyonce, even.

3. Thanks, redqueen.

Shared on Facebook amongst my liberal/progressive friends, many of whom seem to think things are hunky-dorey-fine for women these days.

Edit to add snark... "Because more women than men are graduating from college now!!! See we fixed everything!!!"

6. Thanks for sharing it!



And yeah, I love the various logic fails used to justify thinking that feminism is unnecessary now. We have a lot of work to do.
