The November issue of More Magazine is just starting to trickle out. I'm not sure if it's quite on news stands yet, but I'm going to give you a sneak peek because I'm in it! Wooooo! I wasn't having the greatest day today, and this is just what I needed to lift my spirits.
First, I'm happy with the awesome cover choice, Jane Lynch from Glee:Look, my article even gets a tagline! "Feminists in Fishnets? The tweeters, texters, and bloggers you need to know about." ...Okay, it's obviously there to get your attention, so I don't really care that the only fishnets I own are part of a Halloween costume. ON THE COVER!!
Though I'm a little suspicious of that "Best Diet for your DNA" article. Hmmmm, I reserve judgment until reading it.
My article is right after the piece on awesome chocolate desserts, which I approve of. And the spread looks amazing (click image for larger version):I'M IN A FUCKING MAGAZINE! ...Whoops, that wasn't very lady like, let me try that again.
...I'M IN A MOTHERFUCKING MAGAZINE!
I didn't feel like I was wearing a lot of make up that day, but I was definitely surprised when I saw that photo - in a good way! I feel classy.
It's a two page spread, but I'm only going to post that image so you have some incentive to go and find it on news stands. The intro paragraph under the right half of the photo makes me feel all tingly inside:
We know. We know. We've seen the divide. And we've heard it at events we've thrown - some of you, standing in the back with your arms crossed, saying, "You call yourselves feminists?! When I was your age, I was marching on D.C...." Well, yeah, but in 2010, the stakes have changed. The standard bearers for a new generation are out there. They just approach activism in a different way. Here are the names you need to know now."Yay for rebutting the "Feminism: Ur doin' it wrong" argument! Always a pet peeve of mine. And I may be biased, but I think my description before my interview wins:
"Grad student; liberal, geeky, nerdy, scientific, perverted atheist (all her words)"Hell yeah. Look, I got the word atheist in there! Wooooo!
So, keep an eye out when you pass news stands! And there should be a supplemental video interview online soon where I ramble about science, skepticism, and feminism - I'll make sure to keep you all updated.
Friend: That goes in the speaker bio, right? One of More magazine's top ten new feminists?
Me: Yay, I sound more important now!
