Profile Information

Who I am:
I’m a writer and an artist, and I have a master’s degree in social psychology. I’ve just completed my first book: If Beauty Is Inside, Why Do We Hate Our Guts?: Pop Culture, Sexism, & Body Image. In my book and website, I examine how the media treat women’s bodies as if they’re our most valuable attribute – and how we buy into it. I argue that this constant stream of sexist and degrading imagery undermines both our social and political power, and I offer ways to reclaim that power.

SLUT: See Limbaugh, Unevolved Troglodyte

Posted on March 12, 2012 at 5:34pm 3 Comments

Rush Limbaugh has been all over the news since his misogynistic rant about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student who testified before Democratic members of Congress about birth control coverage being a necessary part of women’s health. His rant went on for over three days, during which he called her a “slut” and a “prostitute,” along with about 50 other insults. Apparently,…


Super Sexism - Not Buying It

Posted on February 6, 2012 at 9:29pm 1 Comment

Unlike most commercials, those that air during the Super Bowl are ones that people actually want to watch. These $3.5-million-per-30-second-time-slots can be opportunities for companies to be clever, maybe even inspiring … but instead, many insist on falling back on lazy and uninspired sexist clichés. This is so expected in fact, that, a campaign named…


Real Women Have ... Bodies

The other day, my friend shared this image on my Facebook wall. I’m sure she had good intentions, as did the creator. At first glance, it seems like a girl-power-feel-good-kind-of-message that challenges the pressure to be thin, similar to the “real women have curves” mantra made popular by…


Whorin' Ain't Easy

In pop culture, a whore is demonized — she’s a woman who sells her body for money, a prostitute. She’s promiscuous and immoral. She’s unclean — she’s a dirty whore, a filthy whore. She’s damaged goods and the opposite of virgin. It’s a bad thing to “whore yourself out” or to be anyone’s bitch. A Google image search for “whore” will bring up lots of porn (so make sure your SafeSearch is on) and quite a…
