    Ironically feminists have Marco Rubio to thank for Crist vetoing the ultrasound law, ‘cuz Lord knows that if Rubio hadn’t beat Crist in the Primary forcing Crist to quit the Republican Party that bill would’ve sailed into law. Now Crist has to run toward the left in order to beat Rubio in the General.

    Chiming in on going to Pride events! I unfortunately can’t make it to the actual parade in Berlin, but I am going to the Lesbisch Schwules Stadtfest (Lesbian Gay Streetfair) in Berlin. I’m looking forward to being a part of a Pride event and being loud and proud outside the U.S.
    Also, this What We Missed is filled with happy.

    Click: When We Knew We Were Feminists
    In Click, editors Courtney E. Martin and J. Courtney Sullivan present twenty-nine essays by young feminists from all walks of life with the intention “to collage together a picture of contemporary young feminists…to discover what it is that still brings a diversity of young people to try on the feminist label despite the obvious risks.” The collection they’ve compiled is inspiring, insightful, and funny in all the right places, and I had to resist the urge to shout, “Preach on!” as I read it.
