Marc made this 45 second video (with some help from me, mostly in writing) last night warning about a new public menace.

Do Not Get Opinionated from Marc F. on Vimeo.

The blurb:

Amanda Marcotte is sinister — a modern she-devil intent on ruining America. Her new book, Get Opinionated, takes a freedom-hating dump on patriots everywhere. All teabaggers are advised to avoid her reading in DC on 5/11 at ALL COSTS.

Watching it all the way through is well worth it, if I do say so myself.

On the subject, Feministing did an interview with me about the book, and it was a lot of fun.

And this is completely off-topic, but doesn’t really deserve a post of its own, but I still have to get it off my chest. Did no one tell these airport screeners or the producers of “The Hard Times of RJ Berger” that penises come in two major states (and everything in between)? I’ll accept the incredible premise that high school girls are universally size queens, okay. But the way people carry on, you’d think that a small glimpse of what a man’s packing when he’s walking around soft has any bearing on the penis size we’re all thinking about. This assumption is so naive that it reminds me of the “40 Year Old Virgin”, and how he thought women’s breasts felt like sacks of sand.

Feel free to comment on the videos, the penis size debate, or whatever the else you’re finding interesting this morning.
