What is trap feminism?

There is a new branch of feminism that we need to know about: trap feminism.  Sesali Bowen explains that it is essentially a blend of feminist lyrics with trap music, the type of music they play predominantly on WIIZ-FM (97.9 FM) in Barnwell.  Hopefully, trap feminism can convert residents of predominantly African-American communities such as Allendale, Bamberg, Blackville and Denmark into feminists.

Saturday Night Live has added two African-American women to its writing team.  Depending on what they write about, it could win me over into actually watching the show. [The Frisky]

The entire family of Honey Boo Boo was injured in a crash after a truck ran a red light in Milledgeville, Ga. and T-boned the SUV.  Honey Boo Boo had a headache after she hit her head on the roof during the collision.  No word yet on whether the truck driver will face charges. [WSB-DT 2]

AT&T is offering $450.00 credit for anyone who wants to leave T-Mobile.  No thank you.  AT&T is the epitome of corporate irresponsibility -- they illegally spy on their customers, they do the bidding of far right wing organizations and they are one of the leading opponents of Net Neutrality.

A bad 1989 law, modified in 1999 when it was due to sunset, treats women as incubators for Texas.  Thirty other states, sadly, have a similar law.  Marlise Munoz's father, Ernest Machado, told the New York Times, “All she is is a host for a fetus. I get angry with the state. What business did they have delving into these areas? Why are they practicing medicine up in Austin?”  I share his sentiments.  If South Carolina does to any pregnant loved one of mine what Texas is currently doing to Ms. Munoz, I will send the state into the federal courthouse in Aiken as defendants.  That is a goddamn promise.  You've been put on notice, Columbia!

Kathleen Hanna can teach Texas, Georgia and South Carolina how to respect women.  She said that her abortion is among the best things that happened to her.  Preach sister! [Jessica Wakeman]
