About

The thoughts of Jet Silver, feminist.

I started this blog because I wanted a place to be angry. I’m angry about many things, but as a white cisgendered woman in a heterosexual relationship,  I am most often angry about sexism.

The blog is called I Am Not Cake because I am a person, not a cake. I imagine most people reading this do not think of themselves as cake, either. Excellent! We’ll get on well. Women, particularly, are not cakes. We do not require ‘icing’ in the form of ridiculous lingere. We are not delicious edible inanimate objects who just need to go that extra  step to please our partners. Women are not commodities, and I Am Not Cake challenges that meme.

(The ‘cake’ conversation did occur. It made me angry. I started a blog.)
