Viewing the ‘Media’ Category

Feminism, sex work, and the pink ghetto I made for myself

March 31st, 2008 at 8:18 pm

This weekend, as you may have notice from my obsessive live blogging and tweeting, I was at the Women, Action and the Media conference in Cambridge. As I’ve blogged about previously, I was pretty anxious about diving into the belly of the feminist beast. I identified myself as a feminist long before I was a […]

I’m what you might call a voracious consumer of sex media, and though I share my thoughts on some of the stuff I’ve been gobbling up in my video reviews on Live Girl Review, I do most of my linking, bookmarking, and staking out of internet awesomeness away from my official blogs.

Private bodies, public stories

March 20th, 2008 at 12:55 am

Since the end of last week I’ve been trying to take a step back from the media craziness. The Spitzer scandal and responding to the media around it was essentially all I did last week. As you might recall, I don’t work for any one organization, which meant that I could act fast on media […]
