Feminism

Satan may not be psyched about this, but most Satanists don’t believe in him. Despite what we know from metal lyrics, South Park, and B-horror flicks, the concept of a cloven-hoofed red guy with horns demanding worship and blood sacrifice from his followers doesn’t really resonate with the modern Satanist. You know what does? Feminism, reproductive rights, animal welfare, and political activism. So, what is Satanism? If your image of Lucifer is a bald guy with a goatee, you are thinking of Anton LaVey, who founded...

If you are horrified by the news of families being separated at the border: good, you should be. If you are not horrified, you must be misinformed or not paying attention. Understanding and spreading the correct information is one of the first ways you can start to help. The Trump administration is telling people that families are being torn apart due to a law put in place by Democrats and they are simply “following orders.” This is fake news. But does it sound familiar? Maybe that's...
Today, New York Representative Jerrold Nadler is introducing the Keep Families Together Act, the companion to a Senate bill calling to end the separation of migrant families. Like the Senate’s bill, this one also mandates that border control officials complete child welfare training and that the Department of Homeland Security put measures into place to reunite separated families. A new idea the bill introduces, though, is that prosecutors must delay taking action against immigrants seeking asylum. Nadler told TIME that “what the bill says in effect is...
Stenberg identifies as nonbinary and uses both she/her and they/them pronouns; she requested we use she/her pronouns when writing about her in our 2017 cover story, so we'll continue to follow her request here.  In happy news this Pride month, Amandla Stenberg revealed that she identifies as gay.

A recording of children’s voices from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Facility has been released and it is heartbreaking. In the recording, you can hear the wails of ten children, ranging from ages 4 to 10, who have been taken from their parents at the border, ProPublica reports. The children are crying for their parents, screaming “Mami” and “Papà” while a border agent jokes that they sound like an orchestra. Over the screams of the other children, one 6-year-old girl pleads with consular representatives...
"Feminist" academic Germaine Greer made the news again recently for yet another of her controversial theories, this time surrounding rape. Speaking at the Hay literary festival late last month, Greer argued that the legal system cannot cope with the “rampant numbers of rape cases,” and that offenders should serve a reduced sentence of around 200 hours community service, as well as having an “r” tattooed on their hand, arm or cheek. Dystopia much? If, like me, you happened to come across the speech, there is a good...

His lawyers are arguing that it does not count as sexual assault because it occured in Nevada, where the legal definition of sexual assault is limited to “penetration.” Read more at BuzzFeed.
