Wonder Woman’s Body Hair Is Not A “Feminist” Issue. It Is A White Feminist Issue

It is said that every 60 seconds (don’t quote me), White feminists do and say some shit that is so woefully asinine and obtuse that the world has to collectively Megazord Up™! and challenge them on it. Of course, since that is very fucking often, we tend to ignore most of what they say and … Continue reading

Scott Derrickson Thinks Praise Is More Effective Than Criticism. Here’s Why That’s Bullshit

Dearest Lovers of the Zoo. I know what you’re thinking: I know what you’re thinking: Lex, it’s only the fourth day of the year. Why are you wildin’ already? In a way, you’re right. It is too early to wild. But if I am to keep it 100, I must say that there are plenty … Continue reading

For Colored Girls Who Are Tired of Lena Dunham When Her Racism Is Enuf

I debated over what I would name this piece for a minute.

Because if that’s the case, this tweet should bother you as well: I’ll be honest with you. A lot of my … Continue reading

Dear Mark Ruffalo: “Woke” You Are Not

And yes, I wrote that as well as said that in my best Yoda voice. As you can tell by these last couple of posts, this weekend was an interesting one. To say the least. Lena Dunham wildin. The Orange One™ skittering into Black churches. And then, Mark Ruffalo…going full Well-Meaning Chet™. “What he do, … Continue reading

Dear Amy: That Rape Joke Wasn’t Funny

Well, you’ve finally gone and done it. You finally showed your ass and exposed yourself as a White Feminist™. I gotta say. While I usually expect either the worst or absolutely nothing from people, I didn’t expect this from you. Maybe I had my blockers on previously or maybe it’s some of that secondhand Parks … Continue reading

The Thicke Black Line: A Black Man’s Perspective on the Clear Schism Between Black and White Feminism

(previously published on nerdhenshinlovegogo.wordpress.com by Howard Tyrone Smith II) As a Black man, I’ve seen a good portion of the Black experience. But it’s the fact that I was raised by a highly matriarchal family, along with being raised by a father that was as well, that helped me understand (to a degree) the plight of … Continue reading
