Slutwalk NYC

From: discoverfeminism.com |

This past weekend, I went to Slutwalk NYC. I could talk about what an incredible, inspiring experience it was. I could talk about how I did feel conflicted about what I saw as certain gaps between theory and practice of the movement. I could write a lot of things about the experience. But there has already been a lot written about Slutwalk – on this blog and many, many others.

Not Oprah’s Book Club: Love Cake

From: discoverfeminism.com |

Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha’s new book of poetry, Love Cake, is a delight to read. I have to admit I’m not a big poetry reader, but I’ve been a fan of Leah’s since I saw her during Mangos with Chili a few years ago.

A Unified Theory of Orgasm

I just published a long article on orgasms and so-called “orgasmic dysfunction” over at the girl-power site Off Our Chests.

From: discoverfeminism.com |

Oh, hey fat hatred. I haven’t seen you in…oh, right. I see you everywhere, all the time. I know very little about New Jersey governor Chris Christie, and from what I do know I have no interest in defending his politics.
