Welcome to Monday ~ 23 January 2012

isBambi's fabulous new birthday skirt

Hi there feminausts! Guess what, it was my birthday last week! Yes, it is a busy birthday time at feminaust – both MsElouise and I get that little bit older (in a significant way) around the same time.

I just returned from a glorious weekend in Hobart for the MONA FOMA. On Saturday night I saw PJ Harvey perform, and today I sat one row away from her on the flight back to Melbourne. SO STARSTRUCK!! So, a love letter to her is on the way. Keep your eyes peeled! I also visited MONA, so keep your eyes peeled for an article discussing why MONA is UBER FEM!

But for now… Welcome to Monday! Please enjoy the links and don’t get cross at us, we don’t endorse, just share.

She who must not be named Award

No words. Just amazement and hope, this young woman has revived my feminist heart with her 13yr old ‘tude. Watch it.

Shit girls say… and so many ways they say it

For those of you who have somehow missed the ‘Shit girls say’ meme, here is the you tube clip that started it. A Bitch magazine response and HuffPo response and a feminist bloggers response.

And the spin offs it created:

Shit girls say to black girls (plus response), and more associated commentary.

In response to the video ‘shit girls say to gay guys‘ – shit real homophobics say.

Shit people say to feminists

And my favourite: shit yogis say.

MTR

Musings of an Inappropriate Woman wrote a piece in The Age about Melinda Tankard Reist and really started something…

No Place For Sheep responds and then MTR threatens to sue them and NPFS gets even more cross!

Eva Cox responds.

Anne Summers responds.

The comments on the blogs are very interesting as well, but don’t read too many because you will feel very sad. To cheer yourself up though, you should watch this.

And in other news from around the world

Sexual assault on Big Brother in Mexico – who is responsible and complicit??

Let him jizz on your face feminists! And then settle for the man who loves you more than you love him.

The F Bomb finds us a great video to watch about a new beauty product – photoshop!

Being a perfect feminist parent

Great article from Clem Ford on betraying our girlhood – why is it such a problem to be a girl? why such a reward for dismissing it?

Mother vs. Father guilt – who does the work-life balance equation apply to?? The New Economics Foundation provides us with a new way of thinking about it
