"For so many women, myself included, apologies are inexorably linked with our conception of politeness. Somehow, as we grew into adults, 'sorry' became an entry point to basic affirmative sentences."

"These new insights have strengthened, not weakened, the institution. Changed understandings of marriage are characteristic of a nation where new dimensions of freedom become apparent to new generations."
The Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality is, as President Obama declared in his remarks following the ruling, “a victory for America.” It's also a major win for feminism. In the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy recounted the history of marriage in brief, emphasizing that even ...

Have you ever seen an embarrassing photo of yourself? You know the type, a notification pops up on Facebook and the picture you see makes you cringe. Now imagine getting a notification that includes your name, but this time when you open it up you see something criminal, something you can’t unsee, and sadly something everyone else can look at too. This time, you see yourself naked and unconscious. My name is Chrissy Chambers. Some of you pro...

Did you know 1/3 of Android users in the US are parents with kids age 12 and under at home?

Starting today, we’re making it easier to find high quality, family-friendly apps, games, movies, TV shows, and books on Google Play with new discovery features which will empower parents to make better decisions. Approved apps and games opted-in to the Designed for Families program will be made available in the new family sections.

Life would be awful if people actually did these things – so why do people do it when it comes to rape?

This is the cartoon you need to give to all those people who tell you that they got where they did as a result of their 'hard work.' For reasons beyond me, these people are incapable of seeing the myriad complexities that ensure that our world is not a meritocracy and that most people are poor, not as the result of a lack of hard work, but of a system that rewards some by feeding them more resources when they are young and having a support system during the early years of working.

   By the own article's admission, the conclusion is pushed a bit too far though.
   Many of the benefits come from the "improvement of mental and physical health", as in a confident healthy woman also gets more than a mentally-fragile, unhealthy woman… That's a privilege of healthy people: they more easily get jobs and friends and sexual partners (that's so fundamental that there's a whole cosmetic business based on it, worth a lot $)… That's a privilege of confident people: they more easily get paid (ask about it to introverts!)… These are real privileges too. But they're all being lumped as "male privilege" in the article.
   The denunciation is useful and the list is great, it can make people reflect, but lumping privileges should be avoided or it will blur the appropriate response.

Good. 
In March of this year, Congresswoman Katherine Clark of Massachusetts started agitating very publicly for the Department of Justice to quit ignoring online threats against women, asking them specifically to devote more resources to investigating things like the threats and abuse heaped upon game developer Zoe Quinn and others by Gamergate fans.
