Kendall Jenner‘s Pepsi ad sparks backlash   by Sandra Gonzalez @CNNMoney April 5, 2017: 6:27 AM ET with subtext by TEKgirl    Wendy Williams: ‘Women can’t do it all’ (Maybe she really meant to say: Privileged White Women can’t do it all but still try to convince us they can). Kendall Jenner’s new ad for Pepsi has fallen flat. After pumping up the excitement for her new role as a Pepsi spokesperson, the model unveiled her debut ad on Tuesday and quickly became the target of backlash, as did the soda company. In the ad, […]

The Dawn Of Trump's America

I won’t always be writing about the: Cheeto-In-Cheif, but I did want to post this film because this is what the core of Trump’s America consists of.  Don’t kid yourself, this is no small faction.  This is the core and Kelly Ann Conway’s double talk on TV, her “alternative facts” and Dan Spicer’s outright LIES as they are commonly referred to are nothing more than smoke and mirrors. This is no small faction because these individuals are everywhere.  I do mean everywhere, emboldened by a white supremacist sympathizing malignant narcissist that was elected President.  

Protesters rally worldwide in solidarity with Washington march

Donald Trump hammered home in his inaugural address outside the Capitol building Friday the promise he had sewn onto so many red ballcaps: that he would Make America Great Again. In the same spot the following day, Women’s March on Washington protesters with far less nostalgia for America’s past – women who lived through the Civil Rights movement, who came of age in an era when abortion was criminalized, who have vivid memories of a time when gay men and women were regularly victimized – have gathered to say, We are not going back. I’m […]

Steve Bannon’s disturbing views on ‘genetic superiority’ are shared by Donald Trump

Rare photo of Me: ‘TEK Girl’ posted solely to illustrate the fact that despite the lightness of my complexion, I identify as a woman of color. The rhetoric in the accompanying article to be extremely disturbing and outdated.  It is also why marginalized groups need to focus on what’s is important and NOT get sidetracked by such things like a white woman wearing an Afro wig on the cover of Black Hair magazine.  Yes the photo culturally appropriated and was distasteful, but that doesn’t compare to what may be in store for all of us.

She Gets It

I am completely disappointed in the United States, In it’s citizens who are soo going to realize they’ve fucked themselves over, in Obama who consistently took it up the arse to appease Republicans who worked so arduously and succeeded in erasing his legacy. Even Björk understands the notion of white supremacy.   She Gets It by a   I’ve enjoyed her music for 20 years, and though she is often parodied, her way of thinking is similar to my own.  It’s is Pensive, Reflective and Polychronic. Even Back Then She Got it. Related articles Former […]

Don't Tell Me This Was About "Change" And "Outsiders"

As I watch Republican incumbent after incumbent win hold of their seat, the idea that this election was about “change” is garbage. This was about hate. Nothing more and nothing less. There is NO WAY you get this result because something is about “change”. The only reason “white” America stands so squarely against every other group is to retain supremacy. Change my ass. But as I previously wrote, there were Black and Brown people who voted for Trump. There were somke in the LGBTQRIS.T.U.P.I.Ds who voted for him also. You can lump those people in […]

Coming Out as a Writer

by Nicole Dennis-Benn My father left Jamaica when I was three. We were practically strangers until he suggested I live with him in America while attending college. In the U.S. — my new country, my new home — writing became a necessity for my survival. I wrote in journals, scribbling poetry to pacify my homesickness. I liked to imagine the words floating on water, carrying me back home. Writing helped me navigate the complicated relationship I had with home and, most importantly, with myself — each identity in conflict with the other. I wrote to make sense of it all. I […]

We already know that at least one of the men killed on Sunday was a friend of an Autostraddle team member, and it’s likely that many of you out there have connections to these beautiful souls yourself. The Orlando Sentinel is one of many outlets who have been posting stories and information about the victims lives and I wanted to do so here as well. […]
