This Week in Misogyny Loves Feminism and SpaceX

About all I can say about this week is that it wasn’t quite as awful as last week. The French Open seems to be bringing out the worst in people, politicians continue to be idiots, and dress codes continue to be absurd.

A Father’s Day Tribute from a Daddy’s Girl to the Man Who Raised Her to be a Feminist (Even if Unintentionally)

My dad has three daughters. I don’t know if he ever wanted sons, it’s never come up.

She said, “Oh you know Deah, how you play with words all the time? Instead of Father’s Day you can write about Fat Hers Day.” We had a good groaner giggle…because both of us really love terrible horrible no good very bad puns and when we stopped giggling I said, “No.” Read More Dads and Daughters: In Preparation for Father’s Day

On Father’s Day–to a Father Who Has Passed

Dear Dad,

It’s Father’s Day.  And you’re not here, but I’m not unhappy that you’ve passed.  No, it isn’t because you were an abusive or deadbeat father.  None of that. In fact you were outstanding in your lovingness, loyalty, devotion, and care.  Read More On Father’s Day–to a Father Who Has Passed
