My Response to the Ad in the Washington Post Denying the Armenian Genocide

On Friday morning, I wrote a letter to the Washington Post’s advertising department in response to a full-page ad that appeared on the back of Thursday, April 23’s paper. The ad – which the New York Times rejected – is an open letter to President Obama from the Turkish American National Steering Committee that denies the Armenian genocide that occurred a century ago and killed an estimated 1.5 million Armenians. Two weeks ago Pope Francis recognized the events as “the first genocide of the 20th century.” The ad in the Post...more

Here’s my ranking of the show’s 10 best feminist moments, in chronological order....more

Why #GamerGate Is Toxic

Last week I published a post called “GamerGate Is Not all about Violent Tweets.” Although I stated my opinion on the issue (that it is good for video games – like all other forms of media – to be critiqued through a feminist lens), I tried my best to represent the non-violent proponents of GamerGate fairly, using information I gathered from my own personal research and civil conversations I had with proponents on Twitter. My article received both positive and negative responses from gamers. I had hoped that all negative responses would have been respectful but sadly that was not the case.… Read more The post Why #GamerGate Is Toxic appeared first on The Feminist Feline ....more
