It's pretty clear why men fantasize about being superheroes: they're strong, powerful and revered. It wasn’t until I allowed myself to be open, to be vulnerable, that I found I could enjoy the very thing a man wants to be—strong, masculine, confident. My hero. That to allow a man be what he strives to be doesn't take away from who I am or what I can do. And I know I'm not alone in this.
It's been 76 years since Amelia Earhart's plane went missing. But even today, we can learn a lot about love, marriage and career from the fiercely feminist yet feminine pilot who was way ahead of her time.
While we fantasize about finding the perfect feminist boyfriend, the burden of bringing feminism into a hetero relationship often lies with the lady — like so many other burdens of relationships! So here are a few ways to bring an egalitarian spirit to your coupledom.
Set in Victorian-era London, the rom-com Hysteria audaciously treats the rather tricky subject women's sexual pleasure and vibrators, along with another popular current theme of the "Good Girl" vs. the "Bad Girl." When single handedly - no pun intended - tackling the common problem of hysteria becomes too much for Dr Dalrymple to handle alone, he hires Dr Mortimer Granville to assist him in alleviating the symptoms of Hysteria, brought on by women revolting against washing one too many tea cups and husbands who are clueless as to what might be involved
The book "Fifty Shades Of Grey" is rocketing up the fiction best-seller charts as well as the underwears of America's women. Because of its content, the book has inspired many essays about BDSM, sexual power and contemporary, American ladies.
The book "Fifty Shades of Grey" has brought to the forefront of modern society and readers' minds the fact that some women (and men) enjoying BDSM play in their sex lives. SHOCKING, right? What sort of deviant wants to be spanked or tied up or told they're a "bad girl?" I'll tell you: about 60 percent of my friends — mostly women, but some men, too.
Women have gained much ground concerning our rights in the last century. However, a frightening trend, which limits our rights, is making headway yet again: the right over our bodies. At the end of the day, what rights will women have left? Recently, lawmakers proposed a bill that could close down the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, making it an ‘abortion-free’ state.
Steering clear of "pot calling kettle black," I want to make sure that I simply make a candid observation. "Slinging derogatory comments at someone proves you’re more of an ass with each passing moment you open your mouth.” Now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s talk about Mr. Rush Limbaugh and his use of the word slut, which he lobbed with vile ease at Sandra Fluke just a few days ago.
Not only is Rush Limbaugh way wrong on his comments about Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke but there's an even bigger problem that affects relationships and marriages everywhere when someone with a large audience or platform like Rush makes derogatory comments about women like the ones he made recently.
The first thing you need to know is that Dan asked me to marry him while we were brushing our teeth. We had been together for almost 10 years at that point, living together for five, and we had plenty of people despairing as to whether we would ever get around to tying the knot. We finally settled matters after flossing. Big romantic gestures? Not our thing. We like to lie around eating ice cream straight from the container and watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia reruns. But then we jumped into planning mode for the wedding, a day that's supposed to be nothing but romantic moments and symbolic traditions. And even two cynics like ourselves couldn't help getting caught up in all the excitement. But when it came to walking being a bride and walking down the aisle, did I want my father to give me away?
Pole dancing is a controversial sport.It's hard to do; you have to have excellent core and upper body strength, and you have to be fairly coordinated. But it’s also undeniably erotic. Watching it immediately conjures up sexual thoughts for men, and most likely even for some women. It is inexorably linked to exotic dancing, otherwise known as stripping. Therein lies the feminist dilemma.
If I read the phrase "You've got to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince" on this site one more motherspelunking time, I'm going to spontaneously barf. You don't really believe this, do you? Dudes don't have an equivalent to this creaky, cliché trope. It's not like you'll ever hear one guy comfort another guy by saying "You’ve got to kiss a lot of whores before you find your Madonna." Or vice versa. Men don't want to date princesses.
Paul and Judith have been together for 17 years. They live together, renovated a house together, and share a home workspace. But they are not married. "Neither of us has ever been married, and we don't intend to marry each other. There are no practical reasons to do so—no kids (unless you count our elderly diabetic cat, Julius), no employer-paid health insurance—and several tax-related reasons not to." Nonetheless, they face the same financial strains and decisions that a married couple comes up against. This is the story of how an unconventional couple manages their finances, and why they've chosen this path.
