Lost Grrrls: Feminist Blogging Frustrations →
thefeministhub: cuppy: I write for a feminist gaming blog. In fact, I’m the Lead Editor (which is my title because I own the website, not because I actually have more say than our other two editors). I am new to feminism within the last year. I am still learning terms and learning… My friend, keep your head up. Everyone’s always going to criticize something. There are a mess of...
mybiggestregretever: My biggest regret ever is joining Tumblr. Most of you on here are idiots that have nothing better to do other than anonymously put others down and post stupid gifs all day long. Do yourself a favor and spend your time learning some kind of a skill rather than clutter up the Internet all damn day. Use the time you spend creating gifs to do something useful. [Male, 19] ...

Staying in a Straight Relationship as a Gay Woman
mybiggestregretever: My biggest regret ever is staying in a straight relationship as a gay woman all through my teenage years. I should have got up the courage to get out of it, and to come out. I wasted seven years, and lost my confidence and self esteem through his abuse. I should have been true to myself and I am now. [Female, 21] You had the courage to get out. You just didn’t...
Why this matters.
I get that many queer folks don’t think we need to be worried about joining the military because it is the fascist arm of a violent mind. Just like many queer folk aren’t too concerned about marriage because they feel it is a patriarchal institution. But if you have the freedom to decide to enter into an institution, profession, or relationship- you have freedom. My thoughts on the...
18-Year-Old Iranian Jailed for Blogging About... →
padaviya: On September 18, 2010, 18-year-old Navid Mohebbi was beaten, dragged from his home, and thrown into jail in Iran. He awaits sentencing in a small cell he shares with a convicted murderer. What was Navid’s crime? Apparently, he’s a threat to national security, promotes anti-Iran propaganda, and has insulted current and former leaders of the Islamic Republic. At least, that’s what he was...

Who believes in the flu shot?
Thanks for answering my random question. I have the luxury of not being in a high risk group, so I avoid it- but when I was raising a child I had her immunized. I guess I have this fear of being fucked with, and shots seem like an easy way to fuck with folks. (Especially considering the US occasionally “admits” to using injections to give people things they didn’t ask for.)

Allowing a Man to Sexually Harass Me
mybiggestregretever: My biggest regret ever is allowing a man to sexually harass me when I was 13. He would pin me against the wall, fondle me, and make lewd comments. Now he’s a Mormon missionary. Nobody would believe me if I admitted what happened. [Female, 19] I believe you.
