Typical, we keep you waiting for weeks and then upload three videos at once, which is our way of saying THREE NEW VIDEOS WOOOO!!!

First video: Hugo Schwyzer: How NOT to do feminism

Jenn talks briefly about why everyone hates Hugo Schwyzer. Further reading on the bigger issue of how an abuser was allowed into women’s spaces and what this tells us about white privilege.

Make sure you check the description bar under Jenn’s video too for extra reading around this particular case.

Wimmin’s sports

A video about sexism in women’s sport, despite me being the least sporty person ever. I preferred it when it was all egg and spoon and sack races anyway.

Also I promise this video was ready earlier, but my internet connection would not upload it. I’m choosing to blame the Olympics.

Earlier today Becca took part in a debate/discussion about International Women’s Day hosted by Truthloader.

The second contributor was the organiser of International Men’s Day, and as a result we mostly seemed to end up discussing men’s issues, but here’s the video anyway.

Let us know what you think!

Prude Shaming in Poly Communities

Just cause you have a queer pin on your jacket, doesn’t mean that you don’t shame others or punish them for not being into the sexystuff.

Sporty does not equal manly

I have a lot of feminism and sports thoughts.

So yeah, let’s dispel this useless thinking that being good at sports is masculine, and embrace sportyness for all the genders :)

Men! Feminism! Fatherhood! Yaaay…?

A video that I’m really hoping doesn’t act as the proverbial red flag. Click through to YouTube for the links I mentioned and Happy Father’s Day for the 17th June!

Second upload, re-edited to add the bit about my dad because Holly-Rae’s video made me want to. Plus my dad is totally responsible for the nerd I am today, which just makes him even cooler.

Also yeah, it’s a day late again sorry. Video deadlines seem to really set my depression off. I’m working on it.
