I Take Back Everything I Ever Said About Antonia Zerbisias

(At least until the next time.)

Go read. She's on fire today. A sample:
Can somebody please explain why so many well-intentioned people want to stick their noses between women's legs?

Whether we're talking those who would limit women's access to contraception or abortion, or those who believe that chastity is a "gift'' one gives to one's keeper – i.e. husband – or even those hordes of French feminists now protesting the legal annulment of a marriage because the bride lied about being a virgin, the medieval obsession with our vaginas continues unabated.


Myself, I'd claim that the obsession goes back much further than the Middle Ages, and at least, and calling it "medieval" is kind of a slur on the actual Middle Ages. After all, as evidenced by the scene in Gawain and the Green Knight, somebody had it figured out that women were, you know, people...

So I'm trying to come up with a clever name for my newly spawned sociopolitical (progressive, feminist, etc) blog, and I think "interrobang." Fantastic. Great title, and a good expression of the response I typically have to most of society.

And then I can't get that url because some car insurance place that hasn't posted in two years owns it. So my alternative, interroblog is the next thing I try. And look where it takes me. A friendly blogger. :D

I enjoy your blog. Hopefully I'll come up with a good name sometime soon and you can start reading mine too. Take care.

I'm sorry to have poached you. Is it any consolation to know that I've really poached you? If the age on your profile is correct, I would have taken "Interrobang" as an online handle when you were ten years old. I've been around just a little while. :)
