Sometimes blogger at Gawker T.A.N. asked some bloggers, including myself, to comment on the latest female-centered blog run by Slate, Double X. The results are here and here.


And that's mostly what I have to say about that. Repackaging plain, old-fashioned sexism as if it's somehow brave and insightful is Slate's schtick, and they do it because it flatters the sensibilities of people who know, deep down inside, that they're not rebels, not interesting, and basically reactionary. But that brings traffic, so I suspect they'll never give it up.
