1. Great post! I followed your link to the Time magazine poll and noticed this interesting update:

    TIME apologizes for the execution of this poll; the word ‘feminist’ should not have been included in a list of words to ban. While we meant to invite debate about some ways the word was used this year, that nuance was lost, and we regret that its inclusion has become a distraction from the important debate over equality and justice.

    –Nancy Gibbs

    Looking at the rest of the list, I have to agree that it’s more unsettling to have “feminist” listed alongside “said no-one ever.” Glad they changed their minds!

  2. Sometimes I feel completely exhausted and dejected talking and arguing and explaining about the neverending barrage of anti-woman/anti equality views held so tightly by so many people in our society. It’s such a weight off to read someone else’s thoughtful condemnation of them, especially a man’s. So thanks for this!
