Hello and all that

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:

    Well, it’s a small chair (sized for a toddler), but also an enormous cat.

    Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

    Miranda, QE, and AmandaW: ZOMG we should have a Feministe Cat-Off! I have four house bears, the smallest of which is 18 lbs.

    Yowza. Not sure how much Miyage weighs, although he’s only around two years old (do they stop growing by then?).

    • amandaw says:

      Miranda – I know my cats have kept growing. Cats aren’t considered “adult” until some point between the 1- and 2-year mark, and of course adults continue to grow for a little while after that. But there probably won’t be *that* much change after 2 years. Unless he finds a way to open the cat food cans on his own ;)

      • Miranda says:

        If he could find some opposable thumbs and manage to muster enough energy, I’m sure he would. As it is, he sleeps what seems like 22 hours a day.
