Anti-Feminist Mailbag brought to you by, Feministing


So I’m all about the links today, hey.   Here is one of my favourite features on one of ma favouritismo websites, Feministing.  Here is what one adoring reader had to write:

This latest email is from an admirer who has all the answers as to why I’m a feminist. He also has some interesting questions. (A question of my own: Why is it that I have yet to meet a misogynist who can write an understandable sentence?)

To Jessica, I think your into feminism because your boyfriend dumped you when you least expected it. Maybe you thought that you were his gift from heaven ? Between you and me the girls today are far more maturer than they were 15-20 years ago at the height of feminism. Anyway your wrong, this feminism you preach is all about the same old thing and thats hatred towards men, which works well if your a lesbian. But as in all things what comes around goes around. But will you want what you will get ?

Deep questions indeed: Will I want what I’ll get? Am I gift from heaven? (The answer to that one is obvious – yes, naturally.) All I know is that I’m so incredibly grateful that random dudes care enough to take the time to email me with these existential conundrums. Nothing but love for you, guys!

I admire your strong approach toward this criticism.  Quite inspiring actually.  😀
