Happy Hour with the "F" word women!

 

Enough with this snow-bound funky winter! 

Enough with booze-less feminism!

The Dead Feminists Society of Minnesota meets next at the RED STAG SUPPER CLUB for happy hour and crazy-ass conversation and excellent wine and spirits.

Bring your own money for your own libations - but come prepared to chat and hang with some of the best talkers in the Twin Cities.

Our discussion? What in heaven's name is so dang offensive about the F word, and what will/should the Dead Feminists Society of Minnesota do to change-up the image of gender equality?

Reference the recent article written by our Fearless Instigator for The Guardian. Print it and bring it along if you wish.  What's most confusing/interesting are the comments following the essay.

Parking is bountiful - bring your friends!  We'll gather from 7- 9 and part with new hope for Minnesota feminism and alcohol!

See you then, you spunky broads!

Until then - fight the good fight!

Love always,

Your Fearless Instigator

    I enjoyed visiting with the women on my end of the table. It would have been PERFECT if I could have spent as much time with the rest of the women! Nonetheless, our conversation was controversial enough for me to have that "laughed too loudly at the party" feeling - so I must have had a good time!!

    I wish I could come!!! I teach graduate and undergraduate students at the university who do see our "F" word as much less acceptable to speak than the other "f" word. I'd love to be part of this conversation.

    Hi, all. Just so I'm clear: We're discussing the word "feminist," are we not? Some of the comments seem to reflect confusion and I have no interest in discussing the other "F" word. Thanks.

      In case it was my comments causing confusion, my previous posts were in regard to Kristine's article in the Guardian, which as she mentions above will be the basis for the discussion next week. Yes, the F word is Feminist.

    Somebody please tell me what the "other" F word is? Fearless? Forgotten? Fed-up?

    OMG, I just about had a heart attack. I posted a few comments and just went back to read any responses. The following just kills me, as it shows EXACTLY why Dead Fems need to be part of show the world (not just telling) that Feminist isn't a freaking curse word.

    csigirl2 (ME, in response to another poster saying Kristine could have done the blog without using the word Feminist had she just been a bit more creative, or something): @Twitterhead - Though not stated in this article, I know Kristine and understand she was told that not only could she not use it in the title, but she could also not use it anywhere in the blog... So, actually, that would have been kind of difficult.

    Then, this person's response:

    Twitterhead: @csigirl2 - No, CSI, girl, it would just have required more thought and a more subtle approach.

      yeah, I didn't get that person's comments at all, or why no one called beliefnet's request out for what it is: "don't ask, don't tell".

      Comments were closed by the time I read everything, so I couldn't ask anyone what they thought they were really advocating-- People in the comments section expended an extraordinary amount of energy displaying what they were arguing against, but what were they arguing FOR? Shame? Pleasing all of the people all of the time? Having no right to self-represent/identify?­ A movement to homogenise the definition of a single word in the English language to bring about the neutralisation of every possible association which could ever potentially exist in the minds of everyone on Earth? I don't think most people know what they're ever arguing FOR when they're arguing. I just
      get
      so
      tired...
