But they’re really good for Susannah Breslin, who has gotten her bills paid by ForbesWoman, The Frisky, and The XX Factor (and also Esquire and Playboy, which I’m pretty sure are magazines for men). Also:
Susannah Breslin is an American writer best known for creating the blog The Reverse Cowgirl and for her on-camera reporting for the Playboy TV program Sexcetera. Her writing and television work tends to deal with sexual and pornography-related topics. She has also written for periodicals including ‘Playboy’ and appeared on Politically Incorrect as well as CNN and Fox News. Her published works include “You’re a Bad Man, Aren’t You?”, a book of short stories. Time.com has identified The Reverse Cowgirl as one of the 25 best blogs.
Keep rallying against gender-segregated media, girl.
In the post about how women’s media is the worst, she writes,
If blogs for women existed in the real world, rather than a virtual one, what would they look like? Giant pink bubbles in which women floated through life, peering through the see-through pink walls at the big, bad confusing world out there in which men exist, things are complex, and not everything has to do with whether or not you have a pair of ovaries.
…and that post appears on her blog, which is titled “Pink Slipped.”
She also asks what online gender segregation has done for anyone lately. Putting aside the fact that feminist blogs are not exactly gender segregated and that rallying around a political concept is a little different than being like NO BOYS ALLOWED and catering to a specific set of interests is what a whole lot of media does so I’m not clear on how The Hairpin is way more offensive than Esquire, [COMMA], gender-related media has made Susannah Breslin’s career. And it’s definitely allowed her to be the cool girl in the room who just gets along with guys better than with girls, you know? It’s not like she does it on purpose, it’s just that girls are so annoying and they also weirdly get so jealous of her, and really she’s just more interested in guy things like whiskey and sports (Susannah Breslin, are you pretending to be 23 and writing to advice columnists?). I mean I think the point of this column is, “Boys’ media is so cool, right guys? I am so glad we’re friends you guys. Don’t you hate girls’ media? I SO hate girls’ media. Girls’ media, eew, seriously, it’s basically why I don’t hang out with girls.”
