Feminist bloggers lawyer up

Oh, the ups and downs of those wild and wooly Canadian Blog Awards.

What once seemed like an insurmountable challenge fraught with trauma and tragedy was accomplished in less than 24 hours by a squeaky little wheel and J.Kleiman, the lawblogger who’s running the CBA show this year.

Look!  Lookee!  Oh, look!!!

You can vote for all the categories at the link.

Many thanks to Fern “Squeakywheel” Hill for getting the ball rolling and J.Kleiman for cutting through the bullshit and doing what had to be done.  (Also thanks to Fern Hill for nominating me, truly an unexpected surprise this year. Thank you for being a friend;))

    Hi Beijing

    Yeah, good on them. Fern Hill was probably just being snarky in her original post, who knew it would produce results. I guess it takes a lawyer to get shit done — it’s just funny that it was done so fast, when in years past, the whole topic caused days of furious debate, anger and tears. (Just kidding about the tears, at least I hope so.)

    Anyway, it’s all for fun, but it’s nice to see that one category not neglected as it usually is.

    Am I the only one that had a Golden Girls moment when I read that? I love that show.

    Yeah, it was a snark to begin with. But Jonathan responded in the comments, at first defensively: he ‘inherited’ the categories, etc. Then he must have rethought (my sweetie thinks he ‘took advice’ from a close personal friend of the female sort perhaps), deleted his comments, and asked for a list of feminist bloggers. Which we produced forthwith.

    Voilà! Twas a done deal.

    Good morrow, JJ!
    You’re, like, a feminist? Whodathunk? I mean, feminists got no sense of humor, ya know?
    Q: How many feminists with PMS does it take to change a light bulb?

    if men weren’t such idiots to begin with, feminism would not be necessary, n’est-ce pas?
    Guys (and I mean guys here, ya know?) get over it: That bit with Eve? It’s called entrapment, and it’s not funny.
    To quote Father Andrew Greeley; In any Irishman’s life, there are four sacred women: his mother, his sister, his wife and his daughter. You might as well ordain them. You won’t be giving them any more power and influence than they already have – or deserve.
    Here’s to the next Pope: May she be black, gay, and have a gorgeous wife.

    Bleatmop ;) Yeah, that was sort of going through my mind too.

    Not that I expect to get Vote One in this thing, nor do I really care since I’m hardly blogging anymore, but it was nice of Fern Hill to acknowledge me.

    It’s one of my minor missions in life to put the old meme about the humourless, hairy-legged, no-makeup, sensibly-shod, frumpily-dressed feminist to sleep, once and for all! :lol:

    fern hill – Funny how you can sometimes get results at the time you least expect it.
    Anyway, well done. Nice to have the category in there with al the others, with no hassle over it for a change. I can hardly believe it…

    There was no hassle last year either, you just forgot perhaps because it was no issue.
