Please Donate Now to Women’s Liberation Front to help keep women/girls as a protected class under the law; ensuring their right to safety away from predators, violence, sexual abuse, and harassment that comes about from transgender policy loopholes that makes it lawful for born males to access any female facility only on the basis of a self-declared gender identity, at a time when peeping incidents with electronic recording devices are high. Schools are being threatened with federal defunding if they do not comply with vague, unscientific transgender policy rules. Female students are now being told they have no right to complain about feeling uncomfortable. These new bills aren’t about harm reduction, nor are they necessary reforms of TitleIX; it is the destruction of it’s intended purpose; making sexual abuse acceptable under law.
This extreme intimidation is completely anti-woman and anti-feminist. Vandalizing feminist literature, and attempting to scare women out of a feminist space shows a complete lack of respect for women’s struggle and the history of that struggle to gain our humanity and rights. These patriarchal male dominating tactics of making feminists the enemy should prove beyond a doubt that the new left is attempting to erase woman, our right to organize, and our history of intellectualism and achievements for a cult mindset.
I’m not sure when the definition of progressive queer activism changed to mean defiling and destroying women’s spaces, but unsurprisingly, the violent men of Queer activism (terrorism) are at it again. And quite honestly, they (GAG) can fuck the hell right off – violent patriarchal repression of women with a shiny coat of queer paint is still male violence and misogyny – and has no place in a society that claims to value women and stand for ‘equality’.
This violent shit doesn’t raise eyebrows or cause a stir in the media because the targets are only women after all. Meghan Murphy and the Guerrilla Feminist Collective are on the case though. Thank heavens.

I was so incensed by the news that Michigan State’s women’s lounge was closing in favor of something more “inclusive” that I wrote the university’s president imploring her to re-open it. I kept it short and to-the-point:
Safe spaces for women and other minorities are absolutely necessary. We’re not living in a post-sexist society. Women need women-only spaces to protect them from abusive, entitled, misogynists. Re-open the women-only lounge.
As MSU continues to evaluate facilities and programs to ensure access for all students, plans are under way to convert the space that has historically been used as a women’s study lounge in the MSU Union. This decision was reached to ensure access for all students, consistent with the University’s federal Title IX obligations, and not as the result of any one individual’s complaint. The redesign and construction of the space is slated for…

Dear Michigan State University,
The first thing you should knowabout me is that I’ve looked up to you as an institution since I was a child. If there is such a thing as a legacy MSU student, I was one—the third generation in my family to be offered admission at MSU and accept. I graduated from Michigan State’s professional writing program in 2009 with high honors, and I have proudly represented my alma mater since.
The second thing you should know about me is that I am a woman, a fact that has had a profound impact on my life experiences in general and those I had in college in particular.
I come from a small town in northern Michigan, so it was not until college that I learned to fear walking alone at night. It was not until college that I experienced walking to a party and being followed…

Women’s safe spaces are under attack by transactivists and MRAs. Please Sign.
I was just reading an article about how a self-proclaimed men’s rights activist got Michigan State to close their women-only lounge based on cries of “discrimination against men.” When you’re done hurling plates against the wall, sign this petition to reopen the lounge and provide a safe space for women.
Also, feel free to write the university’s president Lou Anna K. Simon here: firstname.lastname@example.org
