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.”

An Ode To Killjoys

“Killing joy is kick ass. It’s the kind of truth we deserve. I will always love you, honour you, and cherish you for all the joy you kill because that is what is required for us to led authentic and whole lives. We kill joy and space is made for our experiences to be validated. That is space we are all deserving of.”

 We Weren’t Born This Way

“For everyone that’s shaming Kim for making a public post on racism: when did you learn that racism exists?  Were you born with an intricate understanding of white supremacy?  I know I wasn’t.  Despite being raised in an Indian family in the Canadian prairies, I was taught that racism does not exist.  I, like most people in the Global North, had been fed the myth of meritocracy from the moment I was born.”

“The Bachelor,” otherwise know as: “Day-Old Cheese Pizza”

“I’m not naive. It’s not like I’ve ever expected anything radical or progressive from a reality show that buys into so many toxic notions of masculinity, femininity, marriage, family, and love that I wouldn’t know where to begin to catalogue them all. But I guess I just thought they’d try to do a better job of hiding it.”

In conversation with Alex Cu Unjieng

Carissa Ropponen speaks with Alex Cu Unhing, a feminist visual artist and printmaker about her fun and provocative art. Much of Unjieng’s work stems from the negotiation of her identity as an immigrant, and her practice also focuses on feminist issues and aims to explore, question, and challenge what is and can be known, seen, and understood. Alex discusses how her experiences and identity as an immigrant and feminist woman have shaped her work, as well as the personal and political aspects of her art.
