Few writers, whether for free or pay-per-view, so consistently deliver the goods as Amanda Marcotte; hence, the Faster family motto (or ‘marcotto’): “If you’ve only got time to half-assedly skim one blog, make it Pandagon. Or maybe Pharyngula.”
But today, Pandagon. Amanda’s got a great (which I say only partly because she quotes me) and Ã propos post (an ‘apropost’?) about blaming the victim, the popular use of passive voice to sneakily remove male agency from rhetoric about the violence dudes perpetrate, honor killings, and stuff like that. The Ad Council vid she nicks from Lindsay is unbelievable. Also riveting is the discussion, if one is — and I know you are — of a patriarchy-blaming temperament.
