This is what a feminist looks like?

Posted: October 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

Check out this article about an article on the lovely feministing.com.  The women look great, sure, but where are the radicals?  Why are the women featured styled, pinched, squeezed, and coiffed so immaculately?  Yes, women and men alike should be afforded a bit of drag here and there, but this post makes me a little sad.  It feels like feminism defanged and sanitized.  Yes, we want to be accessible.  But how far should we go in our desire to be accepted and influential?
