Happy Birthday, Vanessa!


This weekend was Vanessa’s 29th birthday – so please give her some b-day love in comments. For those of you who don’t know V personally – and that’s most of you! – here are some essential things you should be aware of:
She will always win in a dance-off. (See picture above.)
She throws a mean party.
She can find orange salamanders in the woods in record time.
She is an amazing friend and sister (sniff).
If you get her on a good day, she’ll tell you about the time she threatened to beat up Claire Danes. Seriously.

    Happy b-day, lady! (That’s right, I called you a “LADY”. Despite your role, as an evil feminist, in the death of chivalry.)

    Happy birthday Vanessa! Thank you so much for helping to make feministing the wonderful web community that it is!

    Aw thanks all (and sis)! I’d be thrilled to have a feminist dance party with any of y’all, anytime. As for Claire Danes, sometimes leaving these stories to the imagination makes it all the better :)
