“…Now and then women should do for themselves what men have already done - occasionally what men have not done - thereby establishing themselves as persons, and perhaps encouraging other women toward greater independence of thought and action. Some such consideration was a contributing reason for my wanting to do what I so much wanted to do.”

Hey, bro, cool story.
DFTBA sells a bunch of shirts, and we market to ugly people and nerdy people and small people and big people and pretty people and we’re doing okay and plus we don’t need physical stores with LITERALLY THE WORST MUSIC EVER CREATED BY HUMANS PLAYING AT EAR-BLEEDING VOLUME SO THAT ALL OF YOUR PURPORTEDLY COOL AND BEAUTIFUL EMPLOYEES ARE MADE DEAF BY THEIR WORKING CONDITIONS.
So that’s another way of doing it.
Also I hate your jeans.
Since the company was bought by Mattel 15 years ago, the dolls and their stories have shied away from the controversial subjects that once made them distinctive.
True, and very sad.
① University of Michigan’s DJ Hadeel Al-Hadidi created and broadcasts her own hour-long radio program.
② Scholars teach that Islam encourages sports and physical activity for all, wrote Sayed. The prophet Muhammad is said to have invited his wife Aisha to a foot race.
③ Nadia Afghani, left, and Nadia Chohan make up Hijabi Deafness, a Muslim punk rock/hip-hop band.
④ Michelle Yim, a network engineer, skis, swims, body surfs, rides motorcycles – all while wearing the hijab.
⑤ Atlanta-based Mariem “Punchenella” Brakache (5-5, 1KO) is a former IBA Junior Middleweight Champion, boxing coach and renowned trainer.
⑥ A ballerina and tap dancer from Texas, Hiba Awad is anxious to prove “how versatile and unique a Muslim woman can be.”
⑦ Nousheen Yousuf said the practice of tae kwon do “taught me to treat daily prayers as a real meditation, where the focus is on my relationship with God.”
⑧ Nosheen Cassim, a part-time makeup artist and full-time mother of two, was born and raised in Illinois, but has been threatened by strangers who told her to “go back to where she came from.”
⑨ No matter how different they may look from other beachgoers, Sama Wareh, left, and Aurelia Khatib believe in doing what they love, including surfing.
⑩ Asma Azim, a step-grandmother from Pakistan, has been a manager of mechanics and a truck driver for more than a dozen years. She said her male contemporaries treat her with respect – especially when they discover she can repair her own engine.
I just looked outside to check the patriarchy and apparently it’s reigning men
McFarlane thinks if he has seen a woman’s breasts, he has won and she has lost, and he is now entitled to gloat about it. Women whose breasts Seth McFarlane has seen are meant to feel humiliated and degraded by that fact, even though it’s expected of actresses to show their breasts to get work. Meet the expectations placed on you by your industry, talented actresses? Too bad you’ve now injured your own dignity such that Seth McFarlane can mock you about it in front of a billion people. Even if your character is naked *because she’s being raped* (see point 2 above), it still amounts to a victory for Seth McFarlane to have seen your breasts.
Read the whole thing. It’s not very long.
Gopher Women’s Hockey Team Has Record Breaking Undefeated Season, Minnesota Shrugs
The University of Minnesota women’s hockey team skated to a 3-0 win over St. Cloud State to become the first program in NCAA history to finish the regular season undefeated. Senior goaltender Noora Raty held the Huskies scoreless to garner her NCAA record tying 39th career shutout.
The Golden Gophers (34-0-0, 28-0-0 WCHA) carried a 1-0 lead into the third period, but goals from senior Becky Kortum and freshman Milica McMillen helped the team claim their 34th win of the year and 42nd consecutive victory.
Minnesota now heads to postseason play, which begins next weekend at Ridder Arena. The Gophers will host either Bemidji State or St. Cloud State, pending the outcome of BSU’s game against Wisconsin. The first round is a best of three series with games slated at 6 p.m. on Friday and 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
42: Consecutive games won(broke Harvard’s record of 21 on Nov. 17).
42: Consecutive games won or tied (broke Wisconsin’s record of 32 on Jan. 25).
25: Consecutive road wins (broke Mercyhurst’s record of 15 on Dec. 7).
34: Wins in 2012-13 (most wins in a season: Wisconsin, 37 in 2010-11).
0: Losses in 2012-13 (fewest losses in a season: Wisconsin, 1 in 2006-07).
If you are looking for any information on this in today’s StarTribune, go to page C3 of the sports section, look at the huge article with pictures about the men’s team tying Duluth 2-2 last night, look to the left, and there is basically a small blurb about the women’s team rewriting the college hockey history books.
