Hi everyone! I’m Miranda, one of your humble guest-bloggers for the next two weeks. I’m white, cis, able-bodied, middle class, and jonesin’ to get to know the Feministe readership. Come September, I will be a senior at a public high school in New York City. A few months ago I started Women’s Glib (women’s liberation + glib), a blog by and for teenage feminists, where my henchwomen and I muse, bitch, and ramble in between (or in place of) homework assignments. My focus in my posts here, as it is on Women’s Glib, will be feminist issues specifically affecting teenage women.
About commenting: on my blog, the policy is pretty much what I say goes (or on posts by other bloggers, what they say goes). Comments which are outright hateful or judgmental are obvious deletes; beyond that, moderation is at my thoughtful discretion. For my posts here, things will be pretty much the same. I love comments that are respectful, that are thought-provoking, and that help me keep my privilege in check. I don’t like comments that derail threads. Also, I’m working during the day without computer access, so don’t fret if your comment takes a while to be approved.
Of course, thanks to Jill for inviting me to contribute and all the other Feministe bloggers for being fantastic inspiration. I’m excited about the next two weeks!
Oh — and I have a cat. Here’s Mr. Miyage:
