LadyG is a little overwhelmed with responsibilities right now and so, like the grown-up she purports to be, she needs to take another week off from srs blogging.
In the meantime, meet Charlotte Corday, an alter-ego born of frustration with societal stupidity and general backwardness. After all, if Christina can be Count Dohna sometimes, why can’t a Lady also be a Revolutionary?
LadyG believes in effecting change from the inside: calmly, carefully, deadly. A Hufflepuff with Slytherin ambitions, if you will.
Charlotte believes that the inside is ROTTEN and BROKEN and WHO CARES ABOUT FIXING IT LET’S JUST DESTROY IT. Obviously Gryffindor through-and-through.
LadyG believes in reasoning with opponents until they prove themselves unwilling to listen. (re: the original FB argument, not the awesome WordPress discussion)
Charlotte gets all TigerBeatdown ON YOUR FACE.
LadyG carefully investigates claims of misogyny and sexism because she thinks straight white men are also done a horrible disservice by gender stereotypes.
Charlotte has this to say:
obviously someone's been reading the Feminist Hulk twitter
(Charlotte has been listening to a lot of Paramore this week, and she has no regrets.)
LadyG is working on a music video analysis involving gender performance, but she can’t promise when it will show up. Would you like to see content from Charlotte sometimes? Vote in the comments!
PS Donna Noble says it best.
