Dear Beloved Reader, we're going to be real with you. We're asking you to join our membership program so we can become fully financially sustainable (and you get some cool perks too!) With plummeting ad rates across the media industry, we're at an urgent risk of shutting down. And we don't want you to face Trump and his kind without the unique resources we provide. If everyone reading this only gave $12, we could raise enough money for the entire year in just one day. For the price of a single lunch out, you can help save us. We're an independent feminist media site led entirely by people of color. If Everyday Feminism has been useful to you, please take one minute to keep us publishing the articles you've come to rely on us for. Thank you!
Have you come across “neckbeard” as an insult? It conveys a common stereotype of a “fat loser living in his mom’s basement” – and this cartoon reveals why it has no part in the world we’re building as feminists.
“You minorities always make a big deal out of nothing – I’m sure it’s not hard to handle!” When you’re not society’s “default,” you have a big burden to carry. This cartoon proves how privileged identities are normalized.
