Ilyka Blogs Against the Strawfeminist

Ilyka — conservative blogger, longtime contact, and friend — has taken it upon herself to declare this week “Blog Against Strawfeminism Week” in response to a recent flood of feminist-wary posts by conservative female bloggers, many of whom (surprise!) battle the strawfeminist. I did help with a few ideas via email, which Ilyka is completely open about, but she takes the baton and runs marathons.

I send you all over to hang out and read.

But remember,

This week isn’t so much for those who are feminists already, as it is for those who:
— don’t consider themselves feminists at all;
— aren’t sure whether they are feminists or not;
— would have been feminists in Susan B. Anthony’s day, but now? Forget it!
— just want to wean themselves from dependency and overreliance on the Strawfeminist in their arguments with actual, non-straw-based, feminist lifeforms.

Start here. Go now.

EDITED: I lied. Ilyka has asked that we do participate in the discussion if we’d like.

    There are several interesting posts and comments over there. I think I’ll watch for a bit. But I’ll add that whoever said that “women don’t enjoy the foodfight of the blogosphere” don’t read many women of the blogosphere.

    That’s not a real strawfeminist. She’s wearing lipstick. And she’s smiling.
