I used to read about true crime a LOT. I distinctly remember it being more fun. It’s pretty hard to parse or explain *why* it’s fun to ppl who don’t get it (sororial unit, signally) but there’s a need to understand the extremities of human behaviour and experience, I suppose. You want to know the…

"Killer" isn’t necessarily a societal failure, I think. But "serial" is.

That’s the part that struck me when reading ‘From Hell’, and then all the speculation books I read afterward on the Ripper. Nobody cared about the victims per se. The horror was all about the ritualism; the fact that the victims were sex workers was handled with a shrug and a sense of ‘well, work hazard’. What I took away from the books was wanting to know more about the victims. (And that most of the ‘candidates’ for the Ripper were already unpleasant.)

My response to the ‘I am not a feminist’ internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (it is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.

Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”

This is disturbing and it makes me sad. We need to fix this. Right, tumblr?

I honestly don’t know why this bothers me so much right now but…

Putting a list of hot men on a Pinterest board called ‘Why God Made Us Women’ is calling on a whole host of assumptions that I am personally uncomfortable with, even more so because we are friends and you are a pretty kickass lady usually.

So one day a dwarf is talking to a human and finally realizes that when humans say woman, they generally mean “person who is theoretically capable of childbirth” because for whatever reason, humans assign social expectations based genital differences….

Extra relevant because as a person who makes things and has defined herself so much by enforced gender norms, this kind of thinking is world-changing. 

Now I know what being liberated feels like; like being extremely happy and very angry at the same time

'I can’t recall ever reading a novel where a couple had sex on a horse but I have read a book where they had sex on a camel.  That just gave a new meaning to “hump day”.'

Guys if you don’t subscribe to this blog you need to do that RIGHT NOW; I’ve been reading it for years and it is always good.

Since I’ve been sort of …’coming out’ about this feels like the wrong phrase, since I’ve never tried to hide it but it’s come up a few times: Hi, I’m Hazel, I started reading Marvel comics 11 months ago, after seeing the Thor film.

This surprises people, primarily because I can bang on about…
