What the heck is a "belly bag"? This term showed up in the comments on the tiny handbag post, and the idea both intrigues and grosses me out exceedingly.
Meanwhile, I gotta clarify somthin. When I complain about things like tiny handbags, or BDSM, or strip clubs, the intent is not to cast aspersions on those of you who sport around town with tiny handbags and leather masks and G-strings. My purpose is to make the case for the existence of a male-dominant paradigm that controls, often invisibly, all aspects of our culture. In other words, it’s the patriarchy I blame, not individual women.
Anyway, thanks again to all my well-wishers. I’m off to my surgical biopsy, and may be out of commission for a day or so (they won’t let me take my laptop into the OR, the fucking pigs!). Hold the fort till I get back.
