Long time readers of this blog will remember the time I was BANNED FROM BOOKCLUB on the interwebs, because I suggested that reading 16 Janet Evanovich novels in a row did not a bookclub make, and that it was akin to ordering Chinese Take Out for 16 nights in a row and calling it a Sampling of Asian Cuisine. I got my butt kicked by a few Janet Evanovich Book Lovers that time, Chickens.
Well, now I have been BANNED from commenting on the Feminist Review. Which is such a shame because I have such lofty, self righteous opinions to share with others, when I am not leafing through my copy of Mrs. Dalloway and talking to my cats whilst letting my underarm hair grow.
An independent artist who owns the Etsy company Wasaibi Brooklyn which makes beautiful handcrafted jewelry often using real currency, was approached by The Feminist review and an item from her shop was requested FOR FREE to be reviewed. Wasaibi sent the item to the reviewer, and the result was a non favorable review that that stated that the use of currency in the item was offensive.
HELLO. Here is what I THINK is wrong with this picture: if you have a problem with chicken: don't go asking for a free lunch at Kentucky Fried. That is my opinion.
And so I said as much--only to be BANNED, and this posted in the comments:
Feminist Review said...
A comment made by Lorrie Veasey has been removed for its threatening nature. Similar comments will be removed, and if necessary, reported to the proper authorities. Threats are taken seriously and NOT lightly.
I am the Tony Soprano of Blog Comments. I have scared the Big Bad Feminists. I thought those chicks were tougher.
So Chickens--here is the link to the blog posting. If you can get a comment past the author, who I suspect has a downy moustache on her upper lip and the sense of humor of a rock, let me know. You will be a better man than me.
Because I have become bigger than Paris Hilton in Japan, I have had to turn word verification back on for awhile. Please play WV with me--give the definition of the word you have to type. Example: Fishnelian--WV: what the author of the Feminist Review smells like.
