The Language of Labia

Discovery of the Grafenberg spot [G-Spot] was claimed by Ernest Grafenberg first in 1950. He described it as a part of the vagina that upon proper simulation would produce intense orgasms. Once again, it had to be named after the man, right? Well, that’s how we got the fallopian tubes, the bartholin glands, and skene’s glands.

Gwyneth, Ivanka, and the End of the Effortless White Woman

Women’s Internationalism against Global Patriarchy

The problem today is not identity-based politics, but liberalism’s co-optation thereof to remove its radical intersectional and anti-capitalist roots. As a result, mostly white female heads of state, female CEOs and other female representatives of a bourgeois order based on sexism and racism are crowned as the icons of contemporary feminism by the liberal media — not the militancy of women in the streets who risk their lives in the struggle against police states, militarism and capitalism.

Why America’s is the Rich World’s Most Abusive Society Towards Women

So the [American] male, entering this world, is right at home — especially the one who is already entitled to the fulfillment of his desire. He is perfectly happy using his powers to abuse society, the economy, the poor, and so on — he does not see it as abuse at all, but only as taking what is his.
