Le bon féminisme

Nous ignorons encore si c’est leur plus gros cerveau ou leur poil sul’ chest qui leur confère cette clairvoyance, mais nous avons cru bon de vous faire part de leurs avis éclairés et bien renseignés sur la marche à suivre quant aux discours et tactiques féministes. Afin d’ajouter aux commentaires des derniers jours, nous avons joint quelques conseils d’hommes cueillis ici et là, au fil de débats sur l’actualité dans les derniers mois. Le bon féminisme en est un d’égalité ; en opposition au mauvais féminisme, qui en est un de supériorité des femmes et de matriarcat.

The additional exposure does not hurt, and regardless of the timing, we feel as if our product will be well received amongst the trans community.

What Is the Belly Button Challenge? Something Bad? Yes

In 1780, John Adams wrote a letter to his wife, Abigail, in which he laid out his plans for what his children and grandchildren would devote their lives to. Having himself taken the time to master “Politicks and War,” two revolutionary necessities, Adams hoped his children would go into disciplines that promoted nation-building, such as “mathematicks,” “navigation,” and “commerce.”

His plan was that in turn, those practical subjects would give his children’s children room “to study painting, poetry, musick, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelaine.” Two-hundred and thirty-five years later, this progression—“from warriors to dilettantes,” in the words of the literary scholar Geoffrey Galt Harpham—plays out much as Adams hoped it would: Once financial concerns have been covered by their parents, children have more latitude to study less pragmatic things in school.

Here Are the Cultural Appropriating Outfits It's Time to Retire For Good

And with those festivals comes the inevitable onslaught of cringe-inducing outfits with the faint taste of cultural appropriation, a la the notorious "hipster headdresses" of Coachella. Native American headdresses are one of several "fashions" that have been picked up by non-native wearers who were either inspired or simply unaware of the item's heritage. Not everything inspired by another culture is cultural appropriation, of course. Susan Scafidi, the director of the Fashion Law Institute at Fordham University, described it as "taking intellectual property, traditional knowledge, cultural expressions or artifacts from someone else's culture without permission.
