You know how the media can't stop talking about Michelle Obamas arms? How they think it means she's 'strong-arming' her husband? how she's gonna win the arms race? how she's giving American women the right to bare arms? well, the arms themselves have decided to enter the fray of bad puns and semiotic limb deconstruction with a blog of their own. First Guns is a hilarious look at our cultural preoccupation with the First Lady's guns, in said guns' own words. From ... Read More

BY Sarah J. in Feminizzle |

I survived WAM! 2009. More importantly, I had a wonderful time. Meeting and connecting with women I've looked up to for years (Abby Scher , Sarah Posner , Julia Serano ) and bloggers I love (Jill, Cara and Jack from Feministe, Sally from Jump Off the Bridge, Tammy from Bitch) in a space where everyone talks to everyone and new friendships form as quickly on Twitter as they did in the halls was inspiring.
