We're exhausted here at Bitch headquarters today by all of the weirdness that's happening on Double X, the new online women's magazine that is a version of the eponymous Slate blog. Apparently, the folks over at Double X don't want to identify as being feminist, but they sure love talking about how feminism is dead. And out to get us. ZOMBIE FEMINISM!
A few episodes back on CSI Vegas, we got to see the geeky (or rather the super-geeky) side of lab tech Wendy Simms. In addition to loving horror films and working in a lab, it turns out Wendy is an unabashed 'Quester' (in the fictional world of CSI, that's the equivalent of being a Trekker/Trekkie). She's discovered at a convention by her equally geeky lab colleague, Hodges, and the awkward, but endearing exchange they have is relatable for any of us who feel an immediate connection to someone who shares what many might seen as a 'silly' obsession—for me it's anyone with ample LOTR media or Prog rock albums hiding in their

This past week, sports-wise, we had a bit of a truth crisis.
We had Manny Ramirez's 50-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance—about which he had previously lied. We had the release of a book on Alex Rodriguez—who also previously lied about his steroid use. The book was written by a woman who, while not a liar, plays dangerous games with what's true.
Former boy band-er and current Michael Jackson wannabe (hey, I love him, but he's no King of Pop) Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend. While funny, a few of these JT SNL (omg acronyms!) sketches are crying out for a bit o' feminist analysis. Let's give it to them!
Here at Bitch, we are all about grassroots support. We like getting out there and meeting our readers and supporters face-to-face and we rely so much on your support to make what we do happen. You've heard of our House Party fundraising drive and I thought, how can I sit here and expect the masses to kick it with their friends in the name of Bitch and not woman-up and do it myself? So...if you're in the Missoula, MT area this Wednesday, I've got an event for you. Read on for more information!
