"I believe it is time for all social justice-minded activists, professionals, and citizens to ask how they can call themselves champions of human rights if they are overlooking very real human rights issues, ignoring human suffering in half of the population, and inadvertently preventing the healing of our human family." -Laurie A. Couture http://disinfo.com/2015/08/critique-feminism-humanitarian-wont-silenced-sexual-domestic-violence/

I 100% support your words and am so happy to hear more young people standing up to the prison of forced schooling. My son unschooled through graduation and learned by following his passions and interests. Of the amazing experiences he had as an unschooler, most schooled youth can't even imagine a fraction. #DontStayInSchool

Visit my blog and check out my latest post, Part III of "The Gender Politics of Toys", this time discussing the upcoming "Lammily" doll, which at first glance looks like a great idea. But can you tell what is missing? http://www.laurieacouture.com/2014/03/the-gender-politics-of-toys-part-iii-the-lammily-average-is-beautiful-doll/

@Naomi, what about rape of BOYS? MEN? Your comments prove that feminism is sexist and biased.

Please check out my latest blog post, "In the Aftermath of the Elliot Rodger Tragedy, Society is Still Ignoring the Real Causes of Youth Violence". It can’t be stated any clearer: Until we as a society address and remedy the neglectful, abusive and inhumane ways that our society treats children, violent tragedies will continue as the most disturbed of these children lash out their pain on society. How many more tragedies will it take before our society addresses the real causes of violence? http://www.laurieacouture.com/2014/06/in-the-aftermath-of-the-elliot-rodger-tragedy-society-is-still-ignoring-the-real-causes-of-youth-violence/
