You know what is awkward to write? Introduction posts! They are not about any specific thing, really. They are not serving any cause. All they are doing – I have verified this! With scientists* – is introducing someone to a blog. Namely, yourself.
My self, since you asked** quite specifically for this information, is Sady Doyle. I am a lady person! And, specifically, a lady person who is kind of awed and humbled to be interblogging before you, the readers of Feministe, today.
I love Feministe! I love the people who read Feministe! The comment threads here are always so smart! And entertaining! When I started my own little ladyblogular venture, Tiger Beatdown, Feministe and all of its many bloggers were a constant source of inspiration. And they remain so, to this day. Except that now I am also posting on their blog. Which is super.
So, I am going to assume you do not know me very well. Which, unless you read Tiger Beatdown, you probably don’t. Here are some vital facts relating to Sady Doyle:
THINGS SADY DOYLE LIKES: Iced coffee, writing long and somewhat over-the-top exegeses of sexism in popular entertainment, playing “Hey! A Douche Posted Something On The Internet,” intersectional feminisms, people to whom I can say the phrase “intersectional feminisms” without getting scrunchy puzzled or threatened faces, ladies with poor self-censoring skills, curse words, footnotes, exclamation points, lengthy sentences, Joss Whedon shows, when feminists disagree and talk to each other and all get smarter as the result of it, feminist bloggers.
THINGS SADY DOYLE DISLIKES: Douches who post things on the Internet, the entire Apatow canon including Freaks and Geeks retroactively even though I can look back on it and recognize that it was objectively a good and moving show, Joss Whedon shows inevitably getting cancelled (when will it STOP), when somewhat older ladies write things that are like, “the reason feminism failed is that younger women are all so SLUTTY now,” when somewhat younger ladies write things that are like, “the reason feminism failed is that older women were not SEXY enough,” divide-and-conquer, Blog Wars, the idea that feminism failed or is failing, the idea that feminism should stop moving forward or cannot move forward or is not constantly moving forward no matter what anybody says.
THINGS SADY DOYLE IS SUPPOSED TO DISLIKE, BUT LIKES: Cigarettes, Megan Fox for some reason, Dr. Gaius Baltar.
THINGS SADY DOYLE IS SUPPOSED TO LIKE, BUT DISLIKES: Non-lengthy blog posts, fresh air, exercise.
THINGS SADY DOYLE DISLIKED BECAUSE THEIR FIRST SINGLES WERE ANNOYING, THEN LIKED A LITTLE TOO MUCH IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT THE SINGLE WAS STILL ANNOYING BECAUSE THE MUSIC IN AND OF ITSELF WAS TOTALLY NOT THE POINT, THEN GOT OVER LIKING AROUND THE 1,000th TIME SOMEONE THOUGHT COVERING AND/OR RECITING THE LYRICS TO “POKER FACE” QUALIFIED AS A CUTTING-EDGE POP-CULTURAL JOKE REFERENCE, THEN WAS GROSSED OUT BY AROUND THE TIME SHE HEARD THE PREMISE FOR THE “BAD ROMANCE” VIDEO, THEN STARTED LIKING AGAIN THE MOMENT THE “BAD ROMANCE” VIDEO ACTUALLY HAPPENED: Lady Gaga.
There you go! That was a nice, hefty load of information for you! But most importantly, the information I have to convey is: I will be posting here now. And I thank you all for having me.
* No, I have not. I know very few scientists. And they are not Introduction Post Scientists, because those don’t exist. It would be a futile endeavor.
** No, you didn’t. You never asked. YOU ARE ON A COMPUTER. I cannot see you.
