Keeping our space

Part of what I’m trying to do with this blog is give radical feminists a place (albeit small) of our own. We have very few spaces dedicated to women who were born female, raised as girls, and navigate the world from a radfem perspective — and I want to create another such space.

For that reason, I will no longer be approving comments from men, even feminist allies — and those allies will understand why. I’m happy to exchange e-mails with allies off-blog, but I want to honor the feedback I’ve received from the women who visit and comment here.

Women’s-only radfem spaces are rare, and we need them. I dedicate this one to us.

  1. What an honorable human you are!

    Without being too inquisitve, may I inquire if budget cuts have affected the education budget in your area?

    Here, a new effin tea baggin’ Governor has taken collective bargaining rights away from the teachers as well as a multitude of other unforgiveable sins against working class folks. The teachers are majority women and the financial and emotional burdens will be challenging to say the least.

  2. Hi, Chonky…thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, the budget cuts have affected us deeply. Arizona is an epicenter of monetary/standardized testing weirdness, as well as destructive conservative politics. It’s so easy to blame teachers — we’re mostly women and modestly paid — and so we are blamed for everything that’s wrong in public schools. And everything that’s wrong makes for a long, long list.

  3. Look at the bright side, you have Jan Brewer and John McCain. Oye!

    Ohh, wait a moment! They ARE part of what is wrong with Arizona.
