"The women of Bikini Kill let guitarist Billy Karren be in their feminist punk band, but only if he's willing to just "do some shit." Being a feminist dude is like that. We may ask you to "do some shit" for the band, but you don't get to be Kathleen Hannah."--@heatherurehere

Men Speak Out

I'm a little bitter about this, because I submitted something to this anthology which was rejected, but I'm still eagerly awaiting the upcoming book edited by Shira Tarrant, Men Speak Out: Views on Gender, Sex and Power. I think it will likely be worth a pre-order, even without my stuff (which I eventually turned into blog fodder here, here and here).

It seems like we're currently riding a wave of feminist interest in how men fit into feminist movement, which is very nice to see, and makes me hopeful.
