One of the very cool side-effects of hosting the friending meme is that lots of people have chosen to add me as well as eachother. Welcome, new people! So I thought I'd better provide some content before you all get bored and go away again. Here's an essay I've been meaning to write up and post for a long time, about feminism and appearance:

let's hope a potentially controversial topic doesn't drive away all my new readers )

Of course, another feminist issue that could be discussed is about all the labour that goes into producing clothes and fashion accoutrements. It's mostly done by women and far too frequently by women with really poor employment conditions. But that's a separate topic.
