Hoisting the lasso and rounding up the herd.

A few things this week that brought the feminist out of this femininist:
  • Generation AA has so much to look forward to! Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito assures students that the number of female justices are on the rise - in a generation or so. [link]
  • "Slutty Classmate Aborts by Accident," on the next Veronica Mars! The questionably popular television show, Veronica Mars, makes a very big misstep in revealing its judgmental, misinformed political agenda - confusing the thousands of young women who watch the show as to the difference between RU-486 and the morning-after pill. And labeling her "promiscuous" for getting pregnant in the process. [link]
  • Rape is fun, fun, for everyone! Apparently, a certain college writer thinks that "rape is a magical experience that benifits society as a whole [spelling errors his, not mine]." Oh, and if that's not enough to make you wish your vagina came equipped with twelve-inch fangs, try this on for size: "In actuality rape advantages can very much be seen today. Take ugly women for example. If it weren’t for rape, how would they ever know the joys of intercourse with a man who isn’t drunk? In a society as plastic-conscious as our own, are we really to believe that some man would ever sleep with a girl resembling a wildebeest if he didn’t have a few schnapps in him?" Uh. Um. What? [link]
