A Jumble of Passions, Misgivings, and Wants

I'm Laura and I am a writer and actress living in New York City. (I know, such a cliche.) Here are some things I find pretty, funny, inspirational, or inspirational as well as the occasional personal post.

—Women who rail against feminism, like those at IWF, work hard to present themselves as “pure,” whether it’s through promoting abstinence-only education and decrying hookup culture or kowtowing to conservative men’s agenda for women. It’s a survival technique: If they can paint other women as “impure.” then they’re safe from criticism. It’s a lot easier to attack other women, after all, than it is to attack a sexist society.
