heres a tip if you want your feminism to be genuinely inclusive stop equating breasts, periods, XX chromosomes with femininity because a lot of women dont have these things and a lot of men and nonbinary people do have these things

Activists in the Philippines rallied outside the US embassy in the capital, Manila, and burnt US flag to express their anger over the killing of a woman by a US Marine.
On Tuesday, the demonstrators demanded that Washington hand over the Marine who allegedly strangled a 26-year-old woman in a motel room.
Jennifer Laude, a 26-year-old trans woman, was last seen entering the Celzone Lodge in Olongapo City with a short-haired male foreigner, aged 25-30, on Saturday night. Later, Laude’s body was found in a bathroom at the hotel, apparently strangled and drowned.
Philippine police, with the help of a key witness, have identified the Marine as Private First Class Scott Pemberton. He will soon be formally charged with murder.
Authorities will file a murder complaint against the Marine on Wednesday, national police spokesman Wilben Mayor said.
“If he remains in US custody, certainly he can escape from our justice system again. We don’t want another Daniel Smith,” activist Corky Hope Maranan said, in reference to another US Marine in the Philippines who was convicted with raping a Filipino woman in 2005. He was able to leave the country in 2009 after a Filipino appeals court overturned Smith’s conviction.
The protesters also demanded all US troops leave the Philippines.
About 3,000 US troops are to leave the Philippines after two weeks of military exercises with Filipino forces.
The 11-day annual military exercise dubbed “Phiblex” began on September 29.

Hello everyone! Today is the launch of our gofundme for CHIFLADAparty!! This is an event that will take place in San Antonio, TX at the end of November or the beginning of December. We want this to be the start of these sorts of events across the the U.S. We want to create communities of creative latinxs everywhere. 
Along with the party, we also want to raise money for the physical zines we want to print! These zines will include our favorite posts of CHIFLADA Issues 1-5. This money will also go towards making the t-shirts, patches, and stickers we want to make for the party as well! 
CHIFLADAzine is something uniquely important because it is a safe space for everyone, especially Latinxs, to showcase their artwork, poetry, prose, photography, films, etc. This CHIFLADAparty will be the beginning of creating artistic spaces for young poets, artists, musicians, writers, vendors, etc. across San Antonio. Latinx voices are typically underrepresented in the media, especially Latina voices. Through CHIFLADAparty, these Latinxs will have a space to come together and have their voices heard. We believe this is important because Latinx representation is important. If you agree, then this is why you should pledge! The event space is approximately $500 to rent, plus $1,000 for food, decor, vendors, and music. The most costly expense will be the physical copy of CHIFLADA which will cost around $1,500 since we will print over a hundred copies and the pages will be in color. Another $1,000 will cover the The CHIFLADA T-Shirts, patches, and stickers.
If you donate from, we’ll be sure to send you a copy of the physical zine! Let us know if you donated so we can mail the rewards out to you! 
read more about our project on our gofundme page!! please donate! we’d appreciate it! 
if you prefer not to donate to gofundme for personal reasons, you can also donate to us at our paypal

Yay! Feminist Anthropology time!

Prehistoric Cave Prints Show Most Early Artists Were Women

I added the emphasis in bold, but the “that” was already italicized in the article, and it’s probably my favorite part. I love this article, although I’m not a huge fan of the fact that it’s considered so incredibly shocking and radical to imagine that women possibly participated in society 40,000 years ago.

In other awesome feminist anthropology news: it is now somewhat accepted that the venus sculptures, rather than being depictions of female beauty by male artists, were self-portraits by women looking down at their own bodies. The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies. 

See also: This quote by Sandy Toksvig

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. ‘This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar’ she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book The Women’s History of the World (recently republished as Who Cooked the Last Supper?) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.

the willendorf sculpture and others like her were /the first selfies/ and its amazing

The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies.

I really, really love this sentence.

if someone missed the reference

28 days is the duration of the menstrual cycle (the lunar cycle is 29 days, so don’t get them confused)

i’m smiling so hard
