    Dear Santa:

    Please bring me a “Smash the Patriarchy” cute kitten shirt for Christmas.

    If you comply, I will consider refraining from representing the elves in their class action suit against you. (But I am still referring them to the ACLU.)

    Yours,
    HWA Vengeance, Esq.

    Oops, so sorry. Wrong Festivus.

    Dear Santa:
    Please bring me Twisty for christmas. Or… at least a book by her.
    Or a taco that she has prepared.
    Sincerely,
    Roozdawg

    Aaaaaw, that kitten is so cute it makes me want to puke. (All over das patriarchy, hee hee!)

    Twisty, do you read the comic xkcd.com? You might like this one/.

  6. Cass

    That is one cool logo.

    That reminds me — I bought a gift certificate to [Local Taco Joint] for my darling, and now I have to remember where I put it. Thanks, roozen!

    Maybe I should go get tacos for lunch. I’ve already got kittens.

    Octopod, that rocked. Thanks for sharing!

    Also: Kitten-With-A-Pickaxe would be an awesome name for a punk band. Just saying.

    Kittens for lunch?! Wow, even I’m not that bitter.

    Oh.

    Nev-er mind.

    Kitten tacos, though. Hmm.

  10. Pony

    Oh no it wouldn’t Cannibal-femme. You *know* how they be dressed.

    Hello! I’m a former lurker, but I’m ready to join in the blaming. :-)

    cocoschomco’s post reminded me of a line that I almost just wrote in a term paper, but thought better of:

    “Reading Butler and Gates and rereading Marx and Foucault has fanned the flames of my nausea at the white patriarchy.”

    I burn with nausea!

  12. CannibalFemme

    Pony: point granted. I admit I was thinking about blood-spattered roomy fauxfurry suits with nifty hidden weaponry pockets, but that’s because I spend too much time wallowing in my own brain.

    P.S.: I haven’t mentioned how much I appreciate the way you share your rage, but I truly do.

    I love the kitten, but I think she’s using the wrong tool–should not she be weilding a sledgehammer instead of a pickaxe? The pickaxe certainly has more a connotation of finesse in smashery. Perhaps she’s prising the patriarchy apart stone by stone. I suppose “Prise the Patriarchy!” is not such a good slogan.

    Also, kittens don’t have thumbs.

    Ha! Perhaps there’s a need for thumbless work-gloves for tool-weilding kittens . . .
