Is a weblog by Emma Humphries
If more people were slapped after they said ableist things, after they propose transphobic laws, after they plan to make abortion illegal, after demanding abuse of immigrants, and after defending cops who murder Black people, we’d have less fascists.
Mona Eltahawy’s story about the time she decked a guy who groped her at a club, and why she decided to punch him.
Somehow this was published without a layout. I also realize that “actor slaps asshole comedian over abelist comment about their spouse” is eons ago in internet time.

Emma Humphries believes in the healing power of Sleater-Kinney’s “Dig Me Out,” coffee, hockey, astronomy and the Open Web. She helps build the infrastructure that enables artists to sell their music directly to fans. In her spare time she dances, messes about with tiny computers, cooks, and rides her electric bike. She started working on the Web when she asked the Otherwise Award’s Motherboard if she could make a website for them in the early 1990's. She still has the original site on a 3.5” disk. She lives with her wife and several cats in Oakland, on lands taken without compensation or permission from the Ohlone people.
