WHO'S IN CHARGE HERE?
Magpie is a former journalist, attempted historian [No, you can't ask how her thesis is going], and full-time corvid of the lesbian persuasion. She keeps herself in birdseed by writing those bad computer manuals that you toss out without bothering to read them. She also blogs too much when she's not on deadline, both here and at Pacific Views.

Magpie roosts in Portland, Oregon, where she annoys her housemates (as well as her cats Medea, Whiskers, and Jane Doe) by attempting to play Irish music on the fiddle and concertina.

If you like, you can send Magpie an email!

Carnival of Feminists 11.

Is time ever flying this month!

It seems like we posted about the last Carnival of Feminists only a couple of days ago, but it's really been two weeks. Which, of course, makes it time for the 11th Carnival. You can read the new edition in all of its feminist bloggy glory if you head over here to Angry for a Reason. If you haven't caught the Carnival before, it's a roundup of the best feminist posts from around the web, appearing twice a month. Hell, it's a roundup of the some of the best posts around, period!

As usual, the 11th Carnival shows that it's hard to pigeonhole femininst bloggers, and the post topics go all over the place. This time, there was no way this magpie could pass up a group of posts under the heading 'What the hell is wrong with you?':

The Anonymous blogger, at Sivacracy.net, asks why some people think sexist comments are somehow funny when leveled against conservative women in Humorless Feminism.

Ann Bartow, at Feminist Law Professors, discusses the case of a female felon who was included at The Smoking Gun for looking "foxy" "Foxy Felons" and the Unexpected Consequences of Crime.

Veronica, at aldahlia, discusses the difficulties of discussing revolutionary thought with some (ok, most) men in Revolution.

Terry at I See Invisible People writes about problems overcoming our conditioning not to speak up and call people out on their sexism in Why is it so hard?

Dark Daughta, also known as One Tenacious Baby Mama comes with a hard hitting look at the popularity and prevelance of male bloggers in the feminist blogosphere. Are we giving the too much credit for not very much work? (I agree with her.) You can hear her very perceptive view of the situation On Patriarchal Male Feminists.

You can read the rest of the 11th Carnival if you go here.

The 12th Carnival is coming up on Wednesday, April 5th, and it will be hosted by Written World. The themes for the 12th edition are influences, inspirations, and culture reversal, but any posts that address a woman's place in the world from a feminist point of view are welcome. To nominate a post, — and it's definitely okay to nominate one of your own — send an eamil to ragnellthefoul AT gmail DOT com or include the Technorati tag carnival12 to your post. The deadline is April 3rd.

And if you want to keep posted on what's up with the Carnival of Feminists, bookmark the home page.
