Dammit Janet and Jeeze Louise. What the hell is so difficult about feminism?
There are two stupid snits going on right now in the Canadian blogosphere both demonstrating that, as Barbie would say, 'feminism is hard!'
Snit One: the annual clusterf*ck over a feminist category at the Canadian Blog Awards. First, the nominations were freeped. Then, an 'outside expert' with cred in 'Women's Studies' was called on to cull them, during which Noted Feminist Blogger and Vicious Abortion Crusader, JJ at Unrepentant Old Hippie, got booted.
Luckily -- and it must have been sheer luck -- the winner, Shameless, is not only a good read but is also actually Feminist.
If your head hasn't met your desk in a while, go read the discussion here in which we feminazis are being given a lesson in 'inclusive' feminism that apparently should include people who say 'I am not a feminist'.
Snit Two: SUZY ALLCAPS gave the world a dazzling display of her pre-xmas Xian charity in a five-part rant about evul feminazism that JJ, the Insufficiently Feminazi, blogged about here, which in turn inspired our deBeauxOs to respond.
One of ALLCAPS's biggest boogeywomen is Status of Women Canada, or as SHE dubs it, SOW, complete with a logo sporting a lipsticked pig. Again, the Sadly Lacking in Feminist Cred, JJ, took HER on here.
Then, Canadian Cynic got into it. There's a link to the idiocy going on in HER comments here.
All I can say is: Oy.
BONUS (USian) SNIT: Go read matttbastard on a Merkin so-called progressive who demonstrates a narsty streak of bitchiness.
