    I adore courtney!!!! but shouldn’t we consider voting for another one of those women who has less media attention/voice/power already? Shouldn’t we be trying to uplift another woman’s perspective since we get to read courtney already? I’m not going to say who I voted for, but the women are really interesting that have been picked. And congrats to courtney for being chosen!

    This is not at all related to the topic of this post, but I don’t know where else to put it, and this post is right over the problematic ad: I keep seeing an ad right in the middle of this blog about how to lose 10 lbs. What is that doing here?!!

  • DeafBrownTrash

    um… how nice of you to tell us that. way to go for announcing it here. /sarcasm

  • DeafBrownTrash

    cool. I just voted for Courtney. Good luck!

    I loved Courtney’s WAPO piece and I really like her writing in general, so I was happy to vote for her. It was very frustrating, however, to read some of the comments that people left for her WaPo column. It seems that there are so many people out there who become enraged at the mere mention of President Obama’s name and can’t control the anger he provokes in them. I hope Courtney avoids reading the comments and remembers that there are tons of people out there who love her work.

    Huh? Are you implying that ShellyB’s comment is not on topic?
    Was there a more appropriate place for her to say this?

    You should vote for whomever you think is best, of course – but I don’t think someone shouldn’t vote for Courtney simply because she writes for Feministing! The audience and reach at WaPo is VASTLY different than a feminist blog. Yes, all of us here get to enjoy C’s writing – but it’s the folks who don’t come to feminist blogs (or even think about feminism) that really need to hear her voice!
