Since the feminist movement, women have openly discussed and debated what it means to be female. This multi-decade dialogue has led to a more nuanced understanding of the complexity of womanhood, and what it means to grow and develop as a multi-faceted woman. A similar dialogue between men about the nuanced intricacies of malehood has been slower to develop.

For years Facebook has maintained an imperious and stony silence against pleas from users and victims about its most objectionable content. But on May 27th, Facebook finally flinched. And then it cratered, caved and capitulated in the course of a single phone call after a one-week #fbrape campaign by the smartest feminists on the planet. By the time Glenford Canning's moving blog post to Mark Zuckerberg appeared on Huffington Post, Facebook was on the phone to campaign organizers, agreeing to every term demanded from the outset.

When it comes to the debate around Disney's redesign of the heroine from Brave, the version of Merida with the bow and arrow is acceptable. The other Merida is the problem, the Merida decked out in the emerald gown with the sash and who applied some de-frizz serum to her hair and left the weapon of destruction at home.

I'll Take Disney on Ice, But Hold the Firearms

As a parent who has been trying to keep my three-year-old son, Emile, away from "shooters," I'm not particularly impressed with the presence of army men at Disney on Ice: World of Fantasy. We're barely a week beyond Newtown and removing guns from kids entertainment should be a first step in reducing the our society's fetishization of firearms.

Public, Corporate Funded Education - Is this Good?

Larry Leach | Posted 12.27.2012 | Canada Alberta

The Calgary Board of Education has recently opened the door to the naming of classrooms to corporate sponsorship. Naming of classrooms or programs leads to some very fundamental questions about public education and has many drawbacks. One of which is if you allow Coca Cola a five year deal on a school gym, why not another school sponsored by Pepsi? If they can sponsor a high school gym, how about a junior high? A middle school? An elementary?
