I don't shut the fuck up for anyone, Linda Hirshman.

Related: Neither do a lot of other people, like Spencer Ackerman (who is one of my closest and dearest friends, too), the inimitable Jason Linkins, the wonderful and talented Jill Filipovic, the beautifully-souled Hilzoy (reprinted here), feminist attack-magnet Jessica Valenti, the brilliant BitchPhD and my fellow colleague at Jezebel and, apparently, in slutty rape-baiting Tracie Egan.

Then there's also Pilgrim Soul, Meg, Rosa Sparks and Little Dragon.

(If you blog it, email me or put it in the comments and I'll add away).

Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciated your response to Hirshman. That article has been driving me crazy all day. Her ideas are so outdated and anti-feminist, it seems unreal. For a lot of us readers, you are defending not just your writing and your experience but the way we all live and think and grow- and our right to do so. Fuck Linda Hirshman. You rock, Jezebel rocks and none of us need to apologize to that horrible lady for anything!
