Women Scholars at Central shout-out

This morning I was on facebook, looking through all the old pictures from Women Scholars. And I remembered this awesome bulletin board we made last year:

And, my favorite part, at the very bottom:

Lil Obee!

Coming Out of the Menstruation Closet

"So here's a revelation. Menstruation isn't gross, or shameful. In fact, it's actually kind of boring. It's only "weird" or "should be private" if you think of men as the default human beings and women as some sort of otherworldy creatures with bizarre practices."

The other day I was reading in my soc book something about masculinity and the author used the word panty-waist as one of the terms boys might call each other when someone's not acting masculine enough or whatever.

I've heard this term before of course, but I had never seen it in text. Panty-WAIST? I always thought it was panty-WASTE, as in, the waste inside a pair of panties. What the heck is a panty-waist? Elastic? Boys call each other boys pieces of elastic? It would be much more insulting to call someone a stinky sticky blob of lady-fluids. I think.

I was just surprised. Ohhhhhhhh homophones, you have beaten me again.

The results are in...

My workshop was kick-ass.

Every single one of my evals came back stellar, with comments like

  • She was really light hearteed which eliminated a lot of the tension.
  • Loved our speaker's personality and the word 'vag'.
  • Jamie was a very good speaker and had fun with the presentation.
  • Jamie was open and charming and knew her stuff. (To be honest, that one's from my old roommate.)
  • Thanks for the info!
  • I felt like the presenter was someone I could really relate to and even be friends with.

Tomorrow I'll be talking about this some more at the Central Scholars Symposium at 12:30. It's somewhere in the Union; I think I'm in 233.
