Blog against sexism

Yes, yesterday and today I have been blogging against sexism (thanks Philobiblon and Vegankid)
The Independent has a great section on the reality of being woman in this great big world. It is not a pretty picture. Yes, feminists might not be the happiest people on Earth as the Slate among other afirms, but it sure beats getting acid thrown in your face, a serious enough threat in Bangladesh to warrant the death penalty, or being female in Saudi Arabia, with its medieval arcane laws of hand cutting, stone throwing and wife beating, or in India, where girls are regularly aborted, or in most of Africa where more than 80% of the work is done by women or in the US where the standart of beauty is an underfed, overlipped and overbreasted barbie doll on 5 inch heels being fucked in every orifice she has in her body.
In my unhappiness, I'll stick to my feminism, thank you!!

From Gateway pundit some positive news and proof that all is not bad for women in the lands of Islam. Men gather to protest and denounce the practice of throwing acid at women.

On other issues:

The discovery of this animal in itself is interesting, but what I find amusing is the description:
Scientists said the animal, which they named Kiwa hirsuta, was so distinct from other species that they created a new family and genus for it. The animal is white and just shy of 6 inches long — about the size of a salad plate.
They have just discovered it and already they're thinking dinner (it does look vaguely like a albino hairy lobster) via BoingBoing
