Cathy Brennan, radical “feminist” terrorist, has set her sights on a young black activist in Baltimore County, MD. Phylicia Sampson is being taken to court by Brennan, a notorious harasser of trans women and their supporters. Sampson is a recent college grad with few resources, no car and no way to fight back without your help.
As a community, we’ve suffered Brennan’s assaults for a long time—her blog is the best known for outing trans women’s personal information. She believes trans women are men who are infiltrating the feminist community and expends her resources fighting them. The idea that she is now taking her harassment to a legal venue is horrifying. That she has selected a young black woman with few resources to fight back is repugnant.
We can’t let Cathy Brennan get away with this! Share Phylicia’s campaign on Facebook, twitter, tumblr and instagram. Here are some things you can do TODAY to help:
- Tell your friends why it is important that they donate to this campaign.
- Donate what you can.
- Write to your favorite feminist blog and ask them to cover this campaign
they need to be defeated.
her experience: “I have been in the midst of roaring Lions, and Savage Bears, that feared neither God, nor Man, nor the Devil … and yet not one of them ever offered the least abuse of unchastity to me in word or action” (Rowlandson 1974, 108–109). Between 1675 and 1763, almost 40 percent of women who were taken captive by Native people in New England chose to remain with their captors (Namias 1993, 25).3

Breaking: Hung jury in case of Detroit police officer accused in 7-year-old Aiyana Jones shooting - The jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict in the case of Detroit Police officer Joseph Weekley who was accused in the death of 7-year-old Aiyana Jones.
Earlier Tuesday, the jury told the court they were having trouble reaching a verdict in the case and the judge ordered them to continue deliberations.
Hours later the court announced that there was a hung jury.
Weekley was charged with Involuntary Manslaughter in the death of 7-year-old Aiyana Jones during a raid on her family’s home on May 16, 2010. Aiyana was shot during the raid, which was caught on tape by crews filming for the reality show “The First 48.”
Aiyana’s family has endured continued harassment from the Detroit PD, including when police in riot gear invaded the family’s new home after her death.
Family members said they were struck, shoved and called racist and sexist names as police officers, some in plainclothes, forced their way into the home on Detroit’s far east side.
Five children were there at the time, including a one-month old baby, a two-year-old toddler, and a five-year old.
“I was just sitting here watching my grandson,” Mertilla Jones, Aiyana’s paternal grandmother said. “Four cop cars pulled up and then they were coming from all over. They tried to grab Bobbie (Aiyana’s cousin), but he came in the house and me and Lakiya and R. J. [Rafael Jones] went out on the porch. The Black cop hit me in the mouth with a flashlight, and pushed and shoved me.”
“But everyone was racist back then! All our favorite historical figures were racist compared to today’s standards! It’s not fair to judge them based on contemporary ideas!”
Let’s debunk this favorite derailment spawned from the headcannons of the White History fandom.
dang i didnt even tink of that but thats so true
white allies used to be right there willin to get their ass kicked, torn apart by dogs, hosed down
everything for equality
but now our “allies” cant even handle criticism

There needs to be a code word or something that means “my brain is fighting me every step of the way today and I feel like I’m going to vibrate out of my skin, so I need you to forgive everything and go slowly and speak softly and lower your expectations.” And then we could all just be like, “I know I said we could go to a movie tonight but… tangerines.” And the other person would nod and squeeze your elbow or rub your head and you wouldn’t feel like a failure.
