On Now You've Really Done It, Sochi

Well, the Russians could have gone to Mars.

Or alternatively (and more likely) the Russians could have funded 23,980 more human rights violations!

On Or Neither

"In the past, a fantasy woman may have been the young, single secretary; now she’s the middle-aged mother of three with a graduate degree." Glad you did the research to find that out?

Honestly, why bother leading with a study based on outdated data when you promptly pivot to your apparent true subject of interest: how middle class women feel about '50 Shades of Gray'?

On On the Brain-Dead Texas Woman Being Kept Alive to Gestate a Fetus

I guess whoever has custody could put the child up for adoption? As for who pays, perhaps Marlise Munoz would be covered under Medicaid (I assume a brain-dead person has no assets or income)? Just brainstorming possible answers.

Yeah, "telling people what is feminist and what is not" is sort of the hidden lede here. One gets the sense that the editors of Everyday Feminism are more interested in simply the appearance of consensus than in being right (never mind the idea that diversity of views might itself have value). That's not unknown across all cultures across all time, but it's pretty unusual for modern Westerners.
