“Feminism is not only for women. It’s something everyone can participate in, and evolve together, as the first step in the right direction. I see feminism as a tool to achieve … balance and peace. … Patriarchy is a fundamental imbalance underlying society. And it’s one we rarely address because it’s so universal. But as I get older, I see that peace is a product of balance. You can’t start with imbalance and end with peace, be that in your own body, in an ecosystem or between a government and its people. What we need to strive for is not perfection, but balance.”

– Ani Di Franco talks feminism while promoting her new album, Which Side Are You On?, which is coming out on January 16. It has always surprised me how some people think feminism means a matriarchy in the sense of oppressing men and women being in control of society. Really, people who care about gender equality care about just that: letting who you are dictate your opportunities, not your gender. How come that’s so hard to understand? [Independent UK]

If you’re not already a fan of Melissa Harris-Perry, you will be soon: she’s a Tulane University political science professor who appears often on “The Rachel Maddow Show” and just scored her own show on MSNBC. Last night she went head-to-head with another talking head, the inimitable Stephen Colbert, while promoting her new book, Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes and Black Women In America. As was to be expected, Stephen is not too keen on talking about this “race” thing. or stereotypes experienced by black women. I dare you not to snicker a little when he asks, “Of these stereotypes, which one are you?” This is Stephen Colbert and Melissa Harris-Perry at their best. [Colbert Nation]

8 Kids Movies That Lied to Us

Production companies have made millions giving children exactly what they want: whether it’s to be an adult, get rich, or meet David Bowie, indulging childhood fantasies is a hallmark of family films.

Imagine the trauma those same children undergo when they’re forced to realize that being an adult sucks, getting rich entails smuggling drugs in your ass, and meeting David Bowie entails smuggling drugs in your ass. Well, as children scarred by the false expectations set up in films, we say no more! Below, eight movies that are begging to be unmasked for the dangerously optimistic propaganda they really are. Read more…

I don’t really see it, but I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been told I look like Barbra Streisand. I typically attribute this to people who have never seen a Jewish woman in real life or something, but apparently this also happens in the cat world. Where are you, darling Barbra-a-like feline? We should probably make a record together.  [Neatorama]
