    Catcall for What?

    March 17th, 2015     by Claudia Chen     Comments

    The “Catcall for What?” music video was sparked by a group of young women of colour sharing their experiences of being harassed on the street. In this video, young women of colour reframe sexual harassment: the perpetrators of catcalling are no longer the focal point of the story; rather, it’s the strong women who are taking a stand and adding some fun to it (with stuffed cats) who really tell the story.

    March 12th, 2015     by Jackie Mlotek     Comments

    In one of my favourite classes I took last year, my professor told us a story about her then toddler aged son. His hair was long and he wore it in a braid, and some of the other kids at the daycare asked him if he was a girl or “why he had long hair like a girl”. He responded sombrely, “There are many ways to be a boy in this world”. I tell this … READ MORE

    American Horror Story: Ableism, Voyeurism and Popular Culture

    March 10th, 2015     by Maria Arseniuk     Comments

    On October 8, 2014 the fourth season of American Horror Story, Freak Show, premiered. The season aired for four months, concluding on January 21, 2015. The trailer’s (watch here) opening line speaks to the tangible ways in which ableism - any form of discrimination or social prejudice against Persons with Disabilities (PWD) - and voyeurism - the fervent observation of sensational subjects, typically from a distance or secret vantage point - continually intertwine to reinforce the cultural subjugation of bodies that fall outside normative conventions.

    February 12th, 2015     by Romi Cameron     Comments

    As February begins and the time for valentines and love letters nears, the desire to express your feelings might quickly blossom alongside a feeling of anxiety over what will happen once the love you feel has been thrown out into the world. This conversation between desire and anxiety is the inspiration for a new zine entitled A Finger Traced My Left Nipple; I Thought that it was Love. Produced by Toronto writer and poet Amanda Norsworthy, the new zine will introduce readers to a wide range of female and queer artists from Toronto. READ MORE

    Fat Girl at the 5K: Five truths for runners and walkers of size

    January 22nd, 2015     by Denise Reich     Comments

    Running and racewalking are more inclusive for fat participants than many other sports, at least on some level. While many folks choose to turn races into social events and run with their friends, for many others, it’s a very solitary pursuit. The other runners aren’t really particularly concerned about you or what you look like, because they’re focused on their own game. However, as in just about everything, sizeism does creep into running culture in major ways. READ MORE
