Wearing a Woman

It’s somehow embarrassing to think about gender so late in my life, but it’s not surprising. Gender never fazed me really, it just seemed like a made-up game, which it still do, but I never really questioned my own gender… Continue reading →

Fan-Fiction: A Woman’s Revenge

So, dear men and women giving us beautiful, fun masterpieces full of men, with one, maybe two women as a decoration in the middle, passing tests in making those two women exchange a line about their clothes, you can vouch… Continue reading →

Ageism in Xena’s skirt

Or some young girl will run around in Xena’s skirt. This is the time when women in their late twenties show up on cougar lists. Ageism isn’t a thing reserved only for Hollywood benches. It’s a universal thing. It’s rooted… Continue reading →
