Wrote this in the car on the way to work this morning. It's about not being a situational feminist. Feedback? http://www.battymamzelle.blogspot.com/2013/01/feminism-my-convictions-are-not.html#.UQaThr9lWSo

Q: I am the parent of a young son. I catch him experimenting with what I suspect might be the "n word." I try to tell him not to say it, but he can't figure out which word I'm referring to unless I say it myself. Should I say the "n word" to my child, just to clarify? Read more

JEZZIES I NEED HELP. I have been going back and forth with a dumbass friend of someone I know on facebook for 2 days ( I know, I KNOW...) over the existence of rape culture, male privilege and the need to tell women to be careful when they go out, the result of which is THIS: Read more

So I watched Miley Cyrus's "LOL" movie, and I surprisingly liked it. It wasn't amazing by any means, but I think it portrayed teen relationships pretty well, and Demi Moore looks AMAZING in it.

Ladies, I've been ill with the flu for about a week now. I thought I was getting better and up to yesterday I was down to just congestion and a really racking and constant cough.

Possibly/Probably insensitive question: Why do people who have lost their hair to chemo/chosen to shave it off in preparation for chemo always cover their bald heads? There's nothing wrong with being bald, and I feel like covering it up is like attaching an "I HAVE CANCER" beacon to your head. I have seen very few Read more
