This Is National Poetry Month, When I Like To Write Novels

I really need to get back to work. 

Sometimes changing your life can be so much fun and so full of interesting experiences that you forget what you were doing and weeks go by and you haven’t done any work. 328 more words

Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison

This is a heavy novel, but it deserves all the acclaim it has received and more. Dorothy Allison takes the reader into the mind of a ten-year-old girl, Bone, growing up in the middle-of-nowhere, South Carolina in the fifties. 161 more words

Well I’ve finally wrapped up the final installment of Dos Passos’ USA, turned the last page of Maus, and moved on to other things, which is good because I just went book shopping at Goodwill. 281 more words


"Complicit No More"

by Yasmin Gunaratnam

As far as feminism of colour goes we seem to be caught in something of a doublethink. Feminism is dis(mis)sed on a daily basis but has also become part of popular culture. 692 more words


The Best of #ReadWomen2014 So Far

Hey All,I know I haven’t been posting a lot, but I really don’t want to post just to post–this blog is often all over the place–some tarot, some theatre, some queer feminism, some random–and I’m okay with that, but I don’t want to post ANY of it if it’s not going to be quality, and between my schedule and my health there’s not been a way to produce quality content more than a couple of times a week at best. 356 more words

Feminist Friday

Gene'O reblogged this on Sourcerer and commented:

I didn't find this in time to reblog it last Friday, so I decided to save it for today. I never really thought much about "queer heterosexuality" until I read this, but I will say that the creativity, flexibility, and negotiation of roles she's referring to here are the things that make intimate relationships worthwhile. I agree with the argument, and I'm glad to have this insight into a perspective other than my own. It's a very thoughtful and well-argued post. I'm also pleased to see my friend Alva making some progress with her blog, which I can't recommend highly enough.
