What is a Woman?

misandry is not real

I am not a radical feminist. Proletarian feminism is a more comfortable label for me, but I am influenced by Womanism, Xicanisma, and transnational feminism. The inspiration for this gallery is the lack of feminist content on the web. I personally curate everything posted on this page, but I also take requests via email.

Women remain underrepresented in computing, despite of their significant contributions to the field during World War II. In the present year you can find articles where Sophie (born Rodger) Wilson is cited as an example of a respected woman in computer science. The mere suggestion is misogynistic, and a continuation of the erasure of women in science and technology.

The real power, as you and I well know, is collective. I can't afford to be afraid of you, nor your of me. It takes head-on collisions, let's do it" this polite timidity is killing us. CherrĂ­e Moraga
Hacking doesn't stop with computers. Every revolutionist is a hacker, hacking the social system. The nerd-heroic Wright brothers hacked bicycles before they started hacking airplanes (because bikes were cutting-edge tech: elegant cheap mobility.) Ms. Manners, a feminist hero, hacks social interactions. The hacker approach works for everything in life. At least, it will make you more likely to analyze the elements of your life. At best it will make you want to transform those elements like an alchemist.Jude Milhon The Joys of Hacker Sex

All too often women believe it is a sign of commitment, an expression of love, to endure unkindness or cruelty, to forgive and forget. In actuality, when we love rightly we know that the healthy, loving response to cruelty and abuse is putting ourselves out of harm's way. Bell Hooks All About Love
According to our social pyramid, all men who feel displaced racially, culturally, and/or because of economic hardships will turn on those whom they feel they can order and humiliate, usually women, children, and animals--just as they have been ordered and humiliated by those privileged few who are in power. However, this definition does not explain why there are privileged men who behave this way toward women. Ana Castillo Massacre of the Dreamers
