    Women’s Work: Reimagining “Blue-Collar”

    26 images of tenacious, strong female loggers, welders, firefighters, miners and so forth challenging the idea of what we consider “women’s work.”

  2. "A male friend of mine that develops AAA games told me, “When a woman criticizes me, it goes to a different part of my brain than when a man on my team does. I get defensive really quickly. I’m trying to get better about it.” I don’t think his is a unique experience.

    We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

    This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it."

    Yeah, it goes to the “DISMISS ANYTHING WOMEN SAY” part of his brain, while he thinks about doing violence towards her. Men=shit.

  9. "Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women for the money. And it made her miserable.

    As a young writer, Alcott concentrated on lurid pulp stories of revenge, murder, and adultery–“blood and thunder” literature, as she called i–and enjoyed writing very much. She was in her mid 30s when an editor suggested she try writing a book for girls. Alcott wasn’t very interested, but her father was a complete moron with money and had left the family in terrible financial trouble. Alcott wrote Little Women in hopes of some decent sales and a little breathing room and got way more than she asked for. The money in sequels was too good to turn down (and her father didn’t get any smarter with a dime), but Alcott hated writing what she called “moral pap for the young” and longed to return to the smut and violence of her early endeavors."

    Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Books and Authors You Had to Read in High School (via bookriot)

    There’s a play about this called “Little Women: The Tragedy”, by the feminist theater group Split Britches.  Having read some of her pulpy gothic horror stuff, I can verify that she had a real gift for it!

    butch girls and femme girls both are taught to hate girls & hate themselves as girls and we gotta grow out of that in the same ways, we gotta love each other and ourselves, & we gotta find ways to feel like we belong with each other and can trust each other. fuck yelling @ butch girls about how they wear shorts because they’re self-hating and trying to fit in with men & fuck yelling @ femme girls about how they wear winged eyeliner b/c they’re fake and trying to impress men

    Abolish men and abolish all misogyny
