I’m afraid I shot today’s load of literary hooliganism answering y’all’s abundant emails, so possibly you can content yourselves with this fried rice, which I ate while watching the accursed “American Idol.” I hate the insipid pop crap to which the tragically misshapen contestants aspire, but I love when powerful rich people tell crazy-nobody-people they are pieces of shit!
By the way, re: the Fat Schizophrenic post, which really seems to have chapped the collective hide, please see more at Pandagon, Shakespeare’s Sister, Feministe, and this just in: Big Fat Carnival at Alas.
Oh, and, remember that braindead pedophile who raped the pre-teen and then married her because they were “in love”? He got jail time! Of course, no small feminist victory is complete without the requisite undermining by standard misogynist reportage: the CNN story alludes to young Crystal as a “child bride” rather than as a “rape victim.” Tra la la, all in a day’s work for the Penetration Booster Society.
