A Chicken comes home to Roost; Rep. Bobby Rush cries Lynch and the Media gave him the perfect right to do so.

FemiSex found it appalling that the press threatened the electorate with charges of racism if the electorate failed to vote Obama.

Feministing as Female Enfeeblers--Just Say NO!

Recently, this popped up on Feministing.com :

“. Sex and the City-I know I'm going to get some shit for this, but I have to ask how we can consider something truly feminist that has NO CLASS or RACE ANALYSIS. I enjoy it. I'm down to watch it. But do we have to call it feminist?”

A Christmas Present for FemiSex.
Readers often send personal notes to FemiSex via the Contact Link on the page. I usually consider those not for printing, but this week the below missive came to us and it is simply too excellent not to post. The intent of the writer seems clear--sharing it with the most eyeballs for the greatest response. I will not publish any identifying information on the writer, but would be most happy to publish her name if I hear from this writer that she wishes for us to do so.
I did no edits other than the addition of Caps to guide readers.

Obama’s Cabinet hits above the mark for Black representation; for women—not so much.

This story just appeared on CNN: “Why Some women’s groups are miffed at Obama”

On Sexting and Shame

If you would be so kind as to take a listen to this video clip from CNN you will hear a male anchor ask: Is there no Shame anymore with a lot of our young girls?
