  1. Assiya’s mother, Iqbal Mai, told me that in her despair, she at first had prayed that God should never give daughters to poor families. “But then I changed my mind,” she added, with a hint of pride challenging her fears. “God should give poor people daughters like Assiya who will fight.”
    I agree with that columnist about Assiya.

  2. I know that my hobby is playing a farming sim, so I have no right to point fingers at having too much time on one’s hands, but WHAT THE HELL? Who has so much time on their hands they can spend it hating Megan Fox for having opinions and shit?
    I had no idea Megan Fox called herself a Feminist. Interesting.

  3. (Oh, but the comments over there… a lot of them are good, but a lot of them are also “But she really is a no-talent slut!”)

  4. Well, let’s see… I found a new blog, PostBourgie, that I think is pretty good.
    I also just put up a post about a surprising, confusing, nauseating, and infuriating dose of abstinence-only education, brought to you by the (current, apparently!) U.S. government.

  5. I hate the ugliness (across the board) that up and coming stars like Megan Fox inspire. I also hate the Paris-hatred. These women play the hand they’re dealt by society – they do *exactly* what society wants women to do…and get lambasted for it. Meanwhile men think they can say *anything* about or to her (see the Comic Con comments where she was asked to make a sex tape for a random dude in the audience while another guy demanded she apologise to his penis…yes really).

    Ugh.

  7. where she was asked to make a sex tape for a random dude in the audience while another guy demanded she apologise to his penis…yes really
    I keep coming back to this in gaping disbelief. The fucked up sense of entitlement on display is exactly the sort of ugliness that ends up with Sodini shooting up a gym full of women.
