Bad feminist?

June 21, 2007 at 9:00 pm (Feminism, Pop Culture)

A few things that make me a “bad feminist”:

– I love pink stuff.Every time I read one of those articles bemoaning the fact that everything is turned pink, I secretly think “how cool!”

– I rarely leave the house without makeup

– I would LOVE to take a pole dancing class

So shoot me.

You go girl.

I wonder if someone asked her if she’s a feminist in an interview would she say yes?

Pride and Prej

June 11, 2007 at 10:56 pm (Pop Culture, Random Musings of the Ginja Ninja)

One of my ongoing self-improvement goals is to read more novels. At the moment I’m struggling with the preliminary chapters of Pride and Prejudice. It’s good, but difficult to follow at times (especially when characters are repeatedly referred to by their surnames – there are FIVE Miss Bennetts, which one are you talking about this time?!) and sometimes my concentration span just isn’t up to it. But I am reliably informed by the members of the Book! club at the Panic! at the Disco threads (yes, I am a fan and proud of it, so shut up) that it gets much better after the first 100 pages. I look forward to that. I’m determined to finish this so that I can read The Happy Feminist’s review of Pride and Prej and know what she’s on about. I’m trying to read ten books over the summer – Zadie Smith’s The Autograph Man as well as Harry Potter 7 are top of my list. I shall keep you updated.
