I didn't post about LJ's gender!fail last night mostly because I was hit by a coordinated attack of those posts from all sides and I was pretty sure between them everybody on my flist was already covered.

I did send them a polite protest though and got roughly the same kind of response as everybody else. They say it was a mistake that was never meant to go live. The changes were not official yet, so on and so forth. I would like to believe them but I suspect they are merely doing a whole lot of backpedaling right now. Whatever the reason, I'm ridiculously glad that LJ won't be going through with it.

I never cease to be amazed at how vocal and determined fandom is. (I would hazard that most of the protests came from fandom, just because of demographics) It's pretty damn awesome.

So good job everybody. I'm proud of you. :D And thank you.

[livejournal.com profile] rm blogs about the challenges of being female and getting health insurance coverage. This shit is fucked up and says a lot about how women's bodies still don't belong to them. Also it fills me with rage.

MY MOM JUST TRIED TO TELL ME THAT IT IS MY INHERENT RESPONSIBILITY TO FEED THE MEN OF THE FAMILY WITHOUT BEING ASKED TO BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN.

Not because there is a family agreement, like the wife makes the food and the husband cleans up afterwards. No, just "SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME THE WOMAN HAS TENDED THE FIRE AND THE MAN HAS GONE OUT TO HUNT" YES SHE ACTUALLY PULLED THAT ON ME. AND THEN SHE TOLD ME I WOULD NEVER HAVE A SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP UNLESS I BENT TO A MAN'S WILL. SDHLFJSDNHFSDFHDFKJDS

I. Can't. Speak. Coherently.
