In a pure coincidence that is nonetheless pretty damn funny, the same day I put up a satirical bleg asking for the NY Times or some similar magazine to profile me, I got a request from the LA Times to do their week-long Dust Up column. It’s one of those back-and-forth things, and the topic is feminism and politics. I was concerned they’d put me up against someone anti-feminist and I’d be spending all my time knitting my brows in irritation, but luckily, the other writer is Katha Pollitt. You can read the first day here.
