Complexities and Messiness: Race, Gender, Disability and the Carceral State (Part II)

August 14, 2015

BROADVIEW, IL - MAY 25:  An undocumented immigrant stands cuffed and shackled at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) processing facility before he and other undocumented immigrants were transported to the airport for a deportation flight May 25, 2010 in Broadview, Illinois.  The immigrants at the suburban Chicago facility were flown by charter flight to Harlingen, Texas where they were then bussed to Brownsville and finally walked to the Mexican border and released from custody. The U.S. deports over 350,000 immigrants a year for entering the country illegally, most are Mexican, and more than 90 percent are men.  (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

By Carolyn Tyjewski The BlackLivesMatter movement was founded on the premise that we should centralize the most marginalized within the Black liberation movements of old. Specifically, the movement intends to center “Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum.” I’d like to...

In Memoriam   I mourn my vagina, and miss her. My husband mourns her too.  As things progressed, we’d used a special Morse when he wanted to make love.  ‘How is she?’ he’d mutter, ‘Alright?’ (dot.dot.dot.)  ‘Not so good,’ I’d stutter, and he’d hug me, too guilty of health to request a hand job. Sometimes,...

THE MOON IS TRANS The moon is trans. From this moment forward, the moon is trans. You don’t get to write about the moon anymore unless you respect that. You don’t get to talk to the moon anymore unless you use her correct pronouns. You don’t get to send men to the moon anymore...

By Jamie Huff   Since the recent killing of nine Black congregants at Charleston, South Carolina’s Emanuel AME church on June 17, debates about the confederate flag have again surfaced on a national scale, particularly for South Carolinians hoping to eliminate the state’s most overt symbolic tie to its history of slavery and secession....

COLLEGE FEMINISMS: Hillary Clinton for President? Why She’s Not the Woman We Need

June 29, 2015

Illustration by Alex Fine Illustration

By: Aviva DeKornfeld Hillary Clinton is a woman and as it turns out, this is big news. Back in 2012, both Clinton and Barak Obama fought for the Democratic nomination, and perhaps fought even harder to distance themselves from their gender and race, respectively. This time, Clinton is ostensibly embracing her womanhood, openly sharing...

EPIGRAMS FOR A LADY   If you hate it when your son is preternaturally boy, freight him with your trunk’s warp. A woman could form a bastion with a man, but for it to persist, both parties must wield Kalashnikovs and permission from Uber-Mom. The idiot, the bad apple: the same thing as prototypical...
