How will you participate?

I'm wearing red, and I'm signal-boosting articles on feminism and feminist issues, taking care to share the writing of WOC and LGBTQ+ women.

Hey fellow feminists. I know I've been absent for awhile. I just skimmed through everything posted in the last few months.

Periodically I blog about why I'm a feminist. Yesterday I shared 5 more reasons. For me, it's helpful to dig deeper than wanting gender equality. I often hear the question (usually condescendingly) of what legal rights do American women lack. Knowing that equality is more than just the letter of the law is an important step in achieving equality.

I found a glorious hashtag from an amazing feminist on Twitter. Because sometimes we have to laugh to keep from crying.

Why you should vote for #GaryJohnson in the general election.
tl;dr Vote for libertarian Gary Johnson for president. I did my best, I really did, to encourage Democrats to vote for Bernie Sanders and to encourage Republicans to vote for literally anyone except for Donald Trump. My post on the presidential primaries…

Hey, bloggers! I'm doing some research for a political blog post, but national surveys haven't quite asked the right questions yet. So I put together my own! If you're an American, would you please answer my survey? Only 6 questions, all multiple choice!

If y'all remember back in the day, I used to share a monthly blog link-up for feminist bloggers. I ended it after little-to-no participation. I've now revamped the blog link-up! The F-Word is a permanent link from the nav bar on my blog. Anytime you write a blog post on feminist issues, feel free to add your post to the link-up.

Have you ever started a hashtag on Instagram? I did a few months ago! Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite posts so far.

If you're not following the transphobic stupidity in the American South, here's a response.

The short story? North Carolina essentially legalized discrimination for any reason, but the main talking point has been requiring people to use the bathrooms that match the biological sex listed on their birth certificates. Now South Carolina is trying to pass its own transphobic law. The rationale is to protect women and children from sexual assault... Which is clearly BS.
