Oh jesus fuck, Betty Friedan died.

Here's the NY Times Obituary.

OK, maybe I'm old school, but Betty Friedan. She's older than my dad, yeah, but The Feminine Mystique was literally and absolutely the first feminist essay/analysis/thing I read, and it sunk in, and ideologically, she's just as much my mother as...who else? It's in the bone.

Betty Fredian is Dead

Does anyone have
female same-sex desire in the British metrapole,
at the turn of the century,
within an imperial frame?

I am aware!
i trace commonalities between sexological discourses of sexual deviance and constructions of indigenous sexuality.
I am looking for work.

Thanks.

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks. Thanks. Thanks.

The possible implication of middle-class white women's dissident sexuality morphed
seamlessly, girlishly, promiscuously, as well as its possibilities for disrupting imperial discourse,
giving intellectual pretensions to a world where the highest ideal is to acknowledge your "inner slut."

I'm looking for the origin of the term
ascribed to a piece
that addresses discussions of the third wave, and I want to unpack
this terminology

it is a sad, sad day. she is missed and will continue to be missed.

someday i'm going to start writing down the letter combinations i have to type in for the "word verification" thing when i post comments.

today it says "ddpok." i don't know what that means, but it seems oddly appropriate for this occasion.

The cultural impact that Betty Friedan made; or even a global impact, for that matter, is truly a magnificent thing.
