If you wear this bathing suit, no one will know you have a vagina. Created by Lydia of Purple, Christian seamstress and raving lunatic. No, I’m not sure what the significance of the big blue oval is either. Maybe this is a planning shot for the sniper who’s going to kneecap her.

Festival of Christian Ladies still going strong, now with 13th century gardening metaphors

Kyso Kisaen over at punkassblog has joined in with a look back at one her favorite articles from the Modest and Submissive Christian Lady® genre: What did you talk about at the tea party, dear? Nothing, just gardening. Those of you who are medievalists, or even those of you who aren’t, know that the walled […]

Everybody loves to talk about sex!

Especially if they can be anonymous on the internets. In the wake of the Blowjob Shitstorm, Bitch Ph.D. decided to create an explicitly non-judgmental space for people to talk about their sexual preferences. Unlike Twisty, Dr. B. is not asking people to blame the patriarchy, and the better-feminist-than-thou nonsense of the late shitstorm is expressly […]

The festival of Self-Loathing Christian Ladies continues

By · Tuesday, June 27th, 2006 · 34 Comments »

You probably know Burrow of Angry for a Reason (aka Lost Clown), but if you’ve forgotten, here’s a reminder: she’s that wonderful feminist blogger who hosted the 11th Carnival of Feminists back in March. Burrow did a fantastic job of choosing and presenting a broad selection of posts, and thanks to her, several new feminist […]

Weapons of Yellow Fuzziness

The wingnuts have got themselves in a tizzy about some old chemical shells that were found in Iraq back in 2004. These were just degraded shells which the DOD itself says were from Saddam’s pre-1991 armament. Yet the magic of wingnuttery has suddenly transformed these relics into the long-lost Weapons of Mass Destruction. Maha correctly […]

I blame the patriarchy

By · Thursday, June 22nd, 2006 · 46 Comments »

The feminist blogosphere has been roiling for days now. Sides have been drawn, gauntlets have been thrown. Sisterhood has been trampled in the rush to judgment on this most compelling of questions: is poutine some disgusting shit or what? I posit that it is. I’ve never eaten poutine, of course, but I’m not going to […]

Back on the Father Hugo thread, Steve asked: So here is my question. And I admit it is asked with some sarcasm: Who are the women that guys like Glenn Sacks are hanging with? Or the women whose behavior and privilege and advantages have been so oppressive to him? Damn, I’d like to meet some […]
