Girly Thoughts

Venus of Venus Speaks kindly tapped me for the Excellent Blog Award, which means I have to find 10 more blogs to tap. I’ll be thinking about it over the next two weeks, while I will not be blogging (which means I might need even longer, because I probably won’t be reading blogs either). I’ll be in Italy and Prague. You may commence jealousy. I’m thinking of trying to find one blog for each of several categories:

1. Feminism

2. Anti-Racism

3. LGBTQ Issues

4. Physical Disability

5. Mental Disability

6. Fat Acceptance

7. Religious Freedom/Separation of Church and State

8. Vegetarianism/Veganism/Animal Rights

9. Anti-Imperialism/Anti-war

10. Humor

Your ten main food groups, from Feministing to Lolcats. Except I’ll be looking for smaller blogs. (Of course there are more issues in the world, and blogs often cover more than one of these, but this is a good start.) It’ll take a while, but I hope the wait will be worth it.

Also, if anybody wants to explain to me how to get that image in my sidebar, that would be pretty awesome. Edit: figured it out.



  1. I will be in Italy in June. Yay! And have fun!

  4. Thanks for advertising your own site on my blog. You could at least pay attention and advertise something relevant; although I used the word “lolcats” in my post, I was clearly not looking for more information on them, whereas you recently wrote on college revolutionaries, which would have been pertinent to my blog since I attempt to be one. Unfortunately, you wrote the post as if all college revolutionaries are heterosexual men, which is not the way to win the hearts and hits of feminist college revolutionaries. It’s also just a bad representation of reality; I would bet female college revolutionaries (especially if you add gay men in with them) are even more common than male ones nowadays, or at least it seems that way at my school. Also, you may have noticed that the ’60s have been over for almost 40 years now, and college revolutionaries have moved on accordingly. So I don’t think I’ll be consulting your field guide, as it fails even at simple stereotype-based humor, but thanks anyway. Have a nice day.

    Real commenters, I’m leaving this link up so you can go explain to him just exactly what is wrong with forgetting that women can be revolutionaries instead of just the prizes that revolutionaries fight for, and with forgetting that homosexual people exist entirely. Yes, even in a joke.

  5. Forgetting homosexuals exist? OH SNAP.
