Some of my readers have written in to inform me that there are several blogs out there that have joined forces in "anti-Clarissa's-blog" propaganda. It would be one thing if they were capable of saying something interesting of their own à propos of my posts. But that would be too much to ask. Apparently, they just quote me extensively and follow it with "Can you believe what this person is saying?" or "Isn't this just horrible?"
I got over my end-of-semester inertia, and consulted my statcounter. It turns out that there are, in fact, people (not many, but what can you expect from unpopular blogs?) who are coming here following the links from Clarissa haters that aim to prove how my feminism is not real feminism. The funny thing, though, is that it seems like many of the readers who follow these links then stay here reading and re-reading every post I have ever written.
Welcome, new readers, and please don't believe the rubbish you have read about me on those other blogs. All I'm trying to do is offer a version of feminism that is more complex and less one-dimensional than the usual "every choice is good" crap. And I do the same with every "liberal" piety.
