Feminist Monday

The links are kind of sparse today. I've been attempting to stay away from the internet due to trying to finish writing a novella before the end of the year, and well... there's that whole Thanksgiving holiday thing. 

This first link makes me smile because it takes a meme originally designed to put down female nerds and then flips it back upon itself. My favorite come back? "I felt a great disturbance in the force as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear a girl has infringed upon Geek Space." and "I have altered the meme. Pray I don't alter it farther." and "Thought geek boys would understand what it's like to be bullied. WRONG." Heh. (thanks to my friend Liz Argall)

Make Me a Sammich strikes again with Don't TELL Me We Don't Need Feminism. An editor for a local newspaper decides not to print any reviews of action films featuring women as protagonists because it offends him. Really? What century are you from?

And here is an example of the pink ribbon for breast cancer thing getting totally out of hand. A funeral home adopts the pink ribbon campaign. Seriously? Holy crap, that's inappropriate. I think I'd have to come back from the dead to slap someone. [shudder]
Heh. Go take a look at my latest "Rant" on my own blog, concerning "Feminist Monday"...
