Be kind to yourself while blooming. I know sometimes it feels like your soul doesn’t always fit. It’s all a part of the process.

Today I registered for my last semester of graduate classes to finish up this MA!

I had a ton of trouble getting my financial aid straightened out, and dealing with courses I needed maxing out at SEVEN people, but I finally got everything in order and my registration complete. (Though I’ll only be taking one Women’s Studies class, which I am slightly bummed about.)

It looks like this upcoming semester will be filled with:

  1. Sociological Theory
  2. Women in Early America
  3. Breaking Waves: Feminism as a Social Movement in the 20th Century. 

(In addition to assisting in an online WS undergrad course, teaching Math/Science/& Robotics classes all over North Dallas, applying to PhD programs, and organizing the biggest project of my entire life, of course.)

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

and all around me are the lovers,
the two-headed beasts
turning to stare
at the madness
of a singular self
