Women Ignorant of Feminism #WomenAgainstFeminism

One misfortune of my new job is that I have fallen far behind in my reading of Jezebel. Luckily, my dear friend Nerd of the Sands chats me up on Facebook, keeping me up to date on all the goodies. He brought my attention to a satirical article titled ‘Things I Learned From #WomenAgainstFeminism.’ Reading it reminded me that, amid all my discussions of feminism and gender equality, I was forgetting to victimize women and hate men. I’m really sorry, guys. I’ve lead you all astray. Continue reading

Defining the Complexity of Living Wages in America

Minimum wage workers have gone on strike time and time again to demand they be paid something they can live on. College graduates sink under their student loans, often unable to make their loan payments even with a salary a little above legal minimum wage.

BLOGERVER

Blogging is a constant struggle. Do I write, reply, read or comment? Then there’s all the updates I’ve wanted to do to this blog, which no one will probably notice (I’m just a perfectionist). I know I said I had a list of priorities going, but that’s not really working for me. If I don’t feel like writing a blog post, I’ll reply or comment. If I don’t feel like doing that, I’ll read something. If, for some insane reason, I feel compelled to do everything, I’ll skim over blogs, like some things I intend to read later, write half a blog post and then lament that it’s 12:30 am on a weekday night.
