Washroom Wars: Yay for Gender Neutral Bathrooms; Nay for Ignorant Buffoons 

“In the midst of supportive colleagues it only takes one person like this to bring me back to reality to remind me of the palpable tyranny that exists, of the oppressive patriarchal dogmas and why feminist advocacy is so important. We may have won the battle this time with the newly installed washroom, but there is a long war ahead of us.”

Stealthy Freedoms and the Colonial Gaze

“As Western feminists we have a responsibility too: to be critical about the kind of struggle that is brought to our attention and reflect upon the reasons behind the publicity they receive. As coloured feminists, we should be alert about the colonial relations that appropriate our movements and not hesitate to denounce them, as Amina Taylor did so bravely and in doing so exposed the racism engraved in certain Occidental feminist movements.”

Who gets to talk about the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver?

“If I could feel myself so angered by the voyeuristic gaze of social scientists and the like, what right do I have, as someone who has neither lived nor worked in the DTES, to take up space with my own voice?”

Vegetarianism & feminist food autonomy: Why I don’t care what you ate for dinner.

“For many, feeling good about eating is hard enough – we don’t need to shame each other about what we’re eating too.”

Romance and Representation in “Insurgent”

“That it is Tris and Four’s relationship that I focused on in this post, and not Lynn and Marlene’s, speaks volumes to where power structures continue to play an enormous role in the production of popular culture. We’re going to need to rock the boat a lot harder if we want that to change.”
