Cranky Fat Feminist Speaks

liberal feminist from the south who ran away to college in the mid-west, and quickly retreated back after my four years were up. trying to save the world one picture book at a time; attempting to live healthier to lose weight, but without giving up beer. challenging the idea that “big is beautiful” as well as what I’ve learned and experienced about women, gender, and feminism from my time in college as well as my time in West Africa. pissed about the apathy of the world, ready to create change one mind at a time.

I'd love any comments you'd like to share! And as always, I'd love for you to click on an ad when you're done reading, it's a simple free way for you to give money towards my student loans!

[feminist] Scott Walker recall election!

I'm excited and nervous for the historic recall election which will begin in a few hours... Wisconsin is voting again for governor-- to get conservative tea-bagger Scott Walker out of office and instate Tom Barrett, the former mayor of Milwaukee (both were opponents in the last election).

Scott Walker is in favor of both corporate and fetal Personhood.

He thinks it is acceptable for pharmacists to not fill birth control medications if it goes against their personal beliefs; as well as for insurance companies and employers to not cover contraceptives.

He has reduced access to women's basic health care for the poor and uninsured.

He has worked to change and restrict abortion laws.

Women in Wisconsin currently earn on average 78 cents for a man's dollar.
