Most Obnoxious Double Standard: Last week I discovered an upcoming film called Free the Nipple, a movie based on the real-life events of New York women who fought against censorship laws. In this article, the director Lina Esco explains the ridiculous social media guidelines that allow videos of women being decapitated and sexualized boobs for the male gaze... but bans desexualized boobs. Can we just talk about how ridiculous it is that men can go shirtless in public, but not women?
Best Biblical Exegesis: If you're a Christian feminist, then you know that certain Bible passages are cringe-worthy. But part of being a Christian feminist is studying those passages, free from the close-minded chains of patriarchy, and discovering new interpretations that don't oppress anyone. I read this awesome blog post on 1 Timothy 2:12, which has traditionally been used to deny women ordination in the Church.
The Latest WTF?! by Forced-Birthers: A brain-dead woman is literally being used as an incubator right now in Texas. I lack the words to describe how horrifying this is.
