KPFK Feminist Magazine Radio Show

KPFK Feminist Magazine Radio Show

Yesterday, I was invited to participate in a radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles. The show is a one hour talk show run by a coalition of (brilliant) feminist activists called, Feminist Magazine. I am on air for about 12 minutes mid episode and am flanked by some really fascinating talk. Right after me is a group of women who talk about the issues facing women in the black feminist community.

Girls on Games Interview

Girls on Games Interview

I was recently interviewed by Girls On Games and, as far as I can tell, did not make a complete ass of myself. @Brianna_Melina was an utterly delightful interviewer and did a great job of not making me feel naked in front of the camera (I’m not wearing any pants) »

Logophile Tuesdays: Portwomanteau

Logophile Tuesdays: Portwomanteau

Anne brought to my attention, this week, the use of an appalling portmanteau: “womenpreneurs.” This is unclear if this is a more grievous offence to women, or language. I would argue that it is a worse crime against the latter. Regarding women, it is simply adding gender to a term that was previously fairly gender-neutral and celebrating the long tradition of reminding ladies that prof... »

Sunflowers, Suffragists, and Artistic Development in Children

To pay the bills, I work as support staff in an Early Childhood Education Centre. I’m lucky in that I very much enjoy this job, especially when I get to design art activities for the children. Earlier this year, my preschool class planted some sunflowers outside in our garden. All spring the children watered the flowers as they grew, and learned about plants in the classroom. Shortly after o... »

Gender Inclusivity in Games

Gender Inclusivity in Games

I work with awesome people. I’ve been illustrating a new storytelling tabletop game for the past few years and it’s probably the most rewarding project I’ve worked on since I started freelancing. Part of that is how fun, different, and creative the game itself is, but much of it stems from the open and inclusive attitude the game designer, Sam Fraser, has had from the get go. The... »

Quilling: Infused with Sexism and Religiosity

Quilling is a paper craft or art form that uses strips of paper to create shapes, create images, fill in areas, and create decoration.  Generally the shapes are rolled around something small (like a toothpick) or pill bottle, or woven using something like a comb.  While there are other options, the primary one is a toothpick like tool. When researching the history you will find too many different ... »
