My friend Rachel Kramer Bussel has a new Village Voice column on resurgent feminist fretting about "unladylike" behavior, which is well worth reading. For an opening line, you can't beat: "Ladies, be warned: Your pussies are causing the downfall of society." (Though maybe an attention-grabbing lede was the only way to yank readers' gaze from the impressive display of decolletage in that oversized author photo.) I wrote about the profoundly disempowering assumptions animating this latest spate of raunch-bashing last September. [Cross posted @ NftL]
