Because putting a single mother in jail is DEFINITELY going to improve the life of this 9 year old girl.

By crocuta on Commodity Fetish: This Is Not Really What a Feminist Looks Like

This was great!

I've also noticed that most companies like Feminist Apparel seem entirely unconcerned with where their products are sourced from. It's bit ironic to have something like "Feminism is for Everybody" printed on a shirt that might have been sewn by an underpaid teenage girl in a third-world sweatshop.

Very interesting piece. Thanks for that. Just one comment: the Immaculate Conception doesn't refer to Mary's virginity. It means that she was conceived without Original Sin.

They all earn less than men in equivalent positions?

By Kalorama_Kat on On the Affirmative Action Ban in Michigan

@sammysayalot Agreed, thanks Jia. I spent some time in Ann Arbor and found it, like Boston, to be extremely self-segregated and, like Boston, full of liberal whites who were concerned about racial prejudice and their own privilege, but had virtually no friends or colleagues of color. There exists a tacit frustration in this dynamic; these white people, well-meaning to a fault, WANTED friends and colleagues of color and were very self-conscious about their lack thereof. Meanwhile, a lot of white Michigan natives who are otherwise progressive liberals, have come to loathe affirmative action in the same way they've come to loathe the UAW. Michigan is a bizarre state.
