Morning Quickie aims to provide you with a daily five minute feminist fix. As consummate procrastinators, we know the importance of combining entertainment with the news of the day — any excuse to avoid work.
We are feminists, but more importantly we care about what is happening to the women around us. We break all the rules — talking about sex, politics and religion. And we have no shame.
Many sites process the news through a strict feminist studies framework, but we don’t believe this reflects the experience of the average woman. We tell it like it is and throw political correctness out the door.
Who are we? We are experts in a variety of fields including journalism, law, psychology and human sexuality. We are women and men who care about the people around us.
We are hairy-legged, party-pooping feminists — and proud of it!
On being feminist
We believe that feminism is the radical notion that women are people too. Or, as the dictionary says, the doctrine that women should have the same economic, social, and political rights as men. What that means is open to interpretation for each individual. All a feminist needs is common sense and a desire for equality.
On being pro-sex
We believe that sex is something to be enjoyed without moral judgment. People should be free to experiment and enjoy whatever they like, to be as vanilla or as kinky as they want with whomever they please. All that is required is the enthusiastic consent of your partner(s).
On being editors
We believe in free range writers. As editors we shape the subjects Morning Quickie covers, but we never impose our beliefs on our writers. As a result, we sometimes publish things that we don’t personally believe. We’ll delete offensive words, change offensive grammar, but trust the readers to judge the ideas for themselves.
