"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

It Would Be Dark (Like This Blog Has Been for a While)

This is how I feel about feminism right now:
Not that feminism is dark, of course, just that it's very complex and can produce endless debate--and for right now, most of what I can come up with isn't much more than something like "It would be dark."

But I'm getting there. Hopefully back soon.

funny, i read the metaphor here as feminism being the sun...

Well, leesajay, you just have an inherently more sunshine-filled perspective on the world than I have. ;)

Also: Did I know you had a food blog? Well, I do now...yay!

I know the feeling. . .

I don't understand the metaphor, Jeff. Like leesajay, I would have expected the sun to represent feminism. If feminism would be dark, what would be light?
