fb-share-card

Scroll down to get started. Let me know how it goes! I wrote this post and made the included graphic yesterday in a moment of what I call using humor for self-preservation.

Update: in response to this post yesterday, check out this simple guerilla activism project using this sign and get involved. Print, Post, Progress. A while ago I had the opportunity to sit in on some meetings where a group was lobbying their state legislators for gender neutral bathrooms. Recently, I attended a town hall where the same issue […]

The Intentions vs. Outcomes Matrix

Intentions-vs-Outcomes-Matrix-Edugraphic-THUMB

It’s no secret I’m not a big fan of how highly we regard intentions. There’s even a whole chapter in my book about it, and it recently led to a great conversation, which led to this more visual representation of the dynamics between intentions and outcomes. Use it how you want and let me know […]

15+ Fantastic Resources for Talking about Homosexuality and The Bible

Even worse, kids are disowned and […]

You, Me, and the GP

Hey folks! With all the stuff that I do, and my book now being out, it’s come to my attention that most of you really don’t know much about what led to me being here (and you reading this), what goes on behind the scenes, and the dollars & sense* of what I do. *this […]

Being an Ally Between a Rock and a Hard Place

What do I call you?

I’m an ally. I’ve written before why I’m an ally, and I’ve even once defended my allyship publicly, highlighting many of my privileged identities. But one thing I’ve never fully addressed is the double-edged-sword, Kobayashi-Maru-no-win scenario that can be what it means to be an ally like me. I haven’t focused on this because I don’t want […]

I made all of these comics for my book. Some of them will be in there. Some won’t make the cut. And many more that aren’t here will (and will end up being posted here after the book comes out). Hope they give you a gender-equity giggle.

I recently had the honor of being asked to give a TEDx talk all about gender. You can watch the video below, and see as I try to condense hundreds of pages of my book into 16 minutes of comprehensible, enjoyable, and sometimes-rhyming words. What’s your favorite part?

30+ Examples of Masculine Dude (“Bro”) Privilege

It's Pronounced Metrosexual

I’ve written a few privilege lists, several of which are about privileged identities I possess. They are serious articles that provide a couple hundred examples of systemic oppression (in the US and elsewhere). This article is not that. I ask that you please humor me as I take a moment to address the many privileges […]

5 Reasons Why So Many People Believe Feminism Hates Men and Why They’re Not True

I'm a Feminist

I originally wrote the following article for Everyday Feminism. You can view that here. “The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.” Pat Robertson famously said this in the […]
