Melissa McEwan manages to describe every day in my life in a blog entry at Shakesville. Basically, discussing the way we feminist are constantly having to explain/defend/assert ourselves, even to those people who we love and claim to care about us. We have to make the decision: should we (as she puts it) “Swallow shit, or ruin the entire afternoon?”

I’m so incredibly tempted to a very specific jackass who is every so fond of using the “devil’s advocate” I’m-only-trying-to-find-weaknesses-in-your-argument line. But he would not get it and I would have to waste my time arguing with him again.
