Spacefem.com is a small community owned & run by some regular people. Not a company. We are not out to recruit you for data mining purposes, there is no venture capital exit strategy, no one is asking about profit margins or even making this a full time job. There are no ads. Posts here are not a commodity to be sold. We are just a fun group of people who like chatting about creativity, nerdy things, feminism, and sometimes pants. This site started over a decade ago and hasn't even changed colors. It is a safe, inclusive place to share opinions, rant, celebrate, cuss or just take stupid quizzes. We were around before every corporate social media site had to "connect" you and we'll be around when they're all gone.

Talk about your TTRPG characters!

I love designing characters, both on paper and digitally. The tools in digital adaptations of tabletop games like Pathfinder: Kingmaker or Neverwinter Nights are half the fun for me.



In the Pathfinder campaign I'm playing in, Destrum is an aasimar cleric of Abadar who serves as the manager and drummer of the band Synergy. He's the lawful neutral type who keeps the mostly-chaotic-good group functioning. (I write our party inventory list in-character.) We're just now getting into the levels (5 and 6) where spellcasters start to get clutch support spells, so gameplay-wise he's no longer just the frontline healer.

Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism also produced a report on females in the music industry (http://assets.uscannenberg.org/docs/aii-inclusion-recording-studio-2019.pdf). According to this report on average per year over the seven years from 2012 to 2018, 21.7% of artists were women (out of 700 songs) (3.6 males to 1 female); 12.3% of songwriters were women (700 songs) and 2.1% of producers were women (400 songs). Further from 2013 to 2019 the percentage of female Grammy nominates were: 8.2% for record of the year, 6.6% for album of the year, 20.6% for song of the year, 41.1% for best new artist and 2.6% for producer of the year. Further only 24 of “Rolling Stone’s” 100 Greatest Singers of All Time are women, see here https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/100-greatest-singers-of-all-time-147019/mary-j-blige-4-35089/ (dated 2010). Of course Rolling Stone is only considering what I would call “Pop Singers” that is singers that one would hear on most commercial radio stations.

Quiz: What kind of engineer should you be?

Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already!

Should white feminists and feminist allies criticize minority created media the same?

So you'd argue...


Aaaaaand this debate is officially over. I'll answer this question swiftly. No.



I'm not conversing with someone that swiftly runs to putting words in my mouth.
