My Feminist Photo Shoot
By now, some of you may be aware that I (on behalf of this here ole’ webblog) was recently chosen as one of 12 “new” feminists by More Magazine.

For example, my school is having a field day. It’s mostly for fun so the activities were kind of silly (3 legged race, etc), but most of them did involve moving. I signed up for “balloon shaving” and “banner making.” The fact that I make a mean banner is completely irrelevant right now (my block letters are impeccable). More on that later.
