Just a reminder that Feminist Monday is still up and Running. Today's entry mentions politics, the first Palestinian women's racing team, and income equality.
Feminist Monday is up. Today's post is about the cheerleaders who don't even make minimum wage while the NFL makes millions.
Today's post is about Captain Marvel and why I'm done with fans 'shipping every single female character at every damned opportunity. https://www.patreon.com/posts/feminist-monday-33497926
The full Daughter of Feminist Monday post is up over on my Patreon. Supporters get the full entry, but here's the first paragraph.
In case you didn't notice during all the fuss about the US nearly going to war because a geriatric mobster with serious emotional and cognitive issues decided it'd be a great day to murder someone in a foreign country and then threaten to commit war crimes. Virginia is set to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. The United States lags far, far behind its peers when it comes to women's rights.And if you think the ERA is unnecessary, consider this from the CNN article at the previous link: "Only 32 constitutions do not include an explicit gender equality guarantee. The U.S. Constitution is one of them. Though parts of the Constitution -- like the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment -- may appear to protect women, even Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has said this isn't the case." So, no. The ERA is not redundant. Japanese women now had more rights than their American counterparts. Even Afghanistan's constitution includes equal rights provisions for women. (It's not enforced, but it is there and provides a future path to that end.)
This weekend a popular Thriller author claimed that women can't fight. This week, Daughter of Feminist Monday is my reply.

Yeah. Not that Invisible Woman. This is just a quick note to say that the newest blog post which is about Caroline Criado-Perez's book Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men is now available at: https://www.patreon.com/stinaleicht. Thanks so much!
It's been about six months. Sorry. Feminist Monday was a lot of work and stress. So after a good long think I'm moving it to Patreon. It makes more sense. Paying that whopping $1 a month weeds out the random assholes in the comments. It also compensates me for the work involved. It's a good thing all around. So, if you're interested in my Patreon the link is: https://www.patreon.com/stinaleicht
Hopefully, I'll see you over there. The first post will be about Caroline Criado Perez's Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men. It's excellent.
Obviously, I'm taking a longer break than planned. Thing is, my parents are older and not in the best of health. I've a new car and that means I'm going to be doing more long distance driving for a while. (Mom is preparing to move to a different city.) In addition, I've been feeling pretty burned-out on blogging lately. I suppose everyone gets to that point. The internet is a different world than it once was and so are American politics. Frankly, I just need a break. I'm so tired of being angry all the damned time. It's made me feel like a less pleasant, happy person. I want to be an optimist. I think right now the world could use some optimism--the wolf you feed and all that. Will I come back to Feminist Monday posting? Yes. Absolutely. When my batteries have recharged. There's too much work to do, and I can't help feeling like my little blog was opening the eyes of some (men) that needed it. That's a good thing. But I've got to take a rest. There's simply too much going on in the world and at home. It's overwhelming.
I wish I could give you a date. But right now, I can't. I do promise to pop in when I'm feeling I have the energy. So, the blog isn't dead. I'll post on Twitter and FB (for now.) when I've something new to say. For now, thanks for being a consistent reader. Thanks for being there. I'll see you soon.
