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 16!

We almost forgot to point out that the lastest Carnival of Feminists is up over here, compiled this time by Welcome to the Nuthouse.

As usual, there's lots of smokin' hot feminist blogging on offer. Here are some sample items to pique your interest:

On the issue of disability and coming into puberty, maman poulet writes beautifully of her own experiences. The lack of a period that usually enables us to distinguish between the transition from girlhood to womanhood was lacking in her life and she tells us why it really is a big deal. I think it goes well with the debate at Alas a blog and Pandagon with regards to "natural" vs. "unnatural". [...]

Coming from Irrational Point's Soapbox, One Step Forward, Three Steps Back analyses Kenya's new sexual assault law, where apparently the Parliament thought it okay to put the punishment of false rape accusations on par with the actual penalties of the rape itself. And no, I'm not kidding. [...]

Lis Riba of Riba Rambles gives us a historical look at The Radical Feminist vs. The Flapper and how the same argument that is used today existed during the flapper era. You will enjoy it as much as I did, I promise.

Then Heart takes it one step further (Without trying mind you. I doubt she knew of Lis Riba's post before it being published just above hers in this carnival. Isn't it cool how these things work?) and addresses Radical Feminism is her post, "Radical Feminism: What it is and what it isn't." [...]

Shakespeare's Sister and Mad Kane take on John Aravosis of Americablog for his use of "big girl" when referring to Pat Robertson. John's response was to move his post so no more of us feminists could find it and vilify him for his obvious misogyny. SS and MK provide you with brand new links to his cover up so go join in the fun all over again! Seriously, this is exactly why I don't read the big A-lister bloggers that are male, not even Atrios or Kos (especially since I heard the latter on the Al Franken show and he wasn't very sympathetic to women's issues but was touted as an "expert" on the issues he has so pointedly made clear were of no interest to him).

There's a whole lot more to look at if you go look at the rest of the 16th Carnival over here.

The 17th Carnival is coming up on Wednesday, June 17th, and it will be hosted by BitchLab. To nominate a post, — and it's definitely okay to nominate one of your own — use this submission form at the Blog Carnival home page.

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