Who is Feminista Jones?
I think of myself as a post-modern, sex-positive, Black feminist woman. That is a mouthful, but it basically means that I’m multi-faceted, at least in my expression of myself and my embodiment of feminism. I exist in a new era of critical thinking and self-identification. I promote the positive aspects of ×sex, sexuality, and sexual liberation. I’m Black and my race/culture inform an enormous amount of my values and perspectives. I am a feminist and as such, I believe that men and women should be treated equally and granted equal access to resources such as education, employment, government, etc. I am a woman. My idea of womanhood and femininity is my own and I own it.
I'll start with a riff on an idea that's been brewing about why have a beef and a problem in intersecting social justice circles so darn often.
from there we'll rip through some news and wrap it up.
Do outsiders feel overwhelmed by the amount of new ideas and concepts?
Should we use fewer acronyms or inside jargon?
Is the problem that people don't have adequate access to quality sources?
Should we provide any type of education such as Lessons,Key word Search terms, links?
How much patience should we have people that are being introduced to new concepts?
All comments are not only welcomed, but encouraged.
Every moment of everyday we get to see evidence that culturally black lives don't matter.
Let's dig into it in this episode.
Texas law-makers are in a fight to pass new legislation that will not only place such harsh restrictions on abortion clinics that all but a handful would be forced to close, but they are also trying to put a ban on abortions after 20 weeks. We have seen many sides of this story but for this episode we take the time to hear from women who had abortions at 19 and 20 weeks about how this would have affected them and why its important to fight this bill!
About 2 weeks ago Tunisian activist Amina Tyler, founder of the her own FEMEN branch in Tunisia, posted pictures of herself topless on Facebook with different political messages written on her chest. She did so, as she said "to make the voice of Tunisian women heard and stand up against oppression."
As a result, she was threatened by a couple religious leaders in the country. So then, girls from the European branches of Femen decided to "support" her by holding many topless protests against what they call the “lethal hatred of Islamists – inhuman beasts for whom killing a woman is more natural than recognising her right to do as she pleases with her own body.” As a result, many Muslim women world-wide are pretty pissed about all this talk by European women about how their liberation should be defined. Pics of Muslim women speaking against Femen have been all over twitter etc.
It's Freethought Thursday and these Uppity Negroes still don't have any cotton to pick.
