This is good stuff

In my typical blog tour I found a link at Lit Soup by author Libba Bray. Ms. Bray's post is in response to a blog entry by Joss Whedon (yay the linking of blogs to other blogs to other blogs . . . ).

I am blown away by this post of hers because it is something I so easily could have written, and, wait a minute, actually have written. I was once given an assignment to write about something I was passionate about for a drama class. So I chose the F word. Feminism. How it has become a dirty word and affiliated with extreme actions, when really the meaning is very simple, equality for women (I cringe when some woman says, "I'm not a feminist, I'm an equalitist." Sigh). Anyway, there is not much point in me going on about it as Ms. Bray has done an excellent job herself, so I direct you now to her blog:

Yes, I get tired of "feminism" being a dirty word. And I get tired of being told I can't truly be a feminist because I'm heterosexual, and I like to sleep with men!

Oh gosh I've never actually been told that thank goodness. What did you think of the post? (oh and thanks so much for stopping by!)
