Inspired by temporary’s comment on Joanbeam’s post, I thought I’d write a bit about what this sub~blog has meant to me. As the Gawkerverse continues to unravel, the only certain thing is uncertainty; we could be around for a long time, or not. Who knows?
I thought I was a fully formed feminist. Turns out, I was just a baby when I found this place. I’ve learned so much about the struggles of POC by sitting down, reading & finally hearing. I’ve seen lovely acts of real world & internet generosity. Several generations of wisdom being passed around, old to young & back again. Tough love & exceptional kindness. Snort~laugh~out~ loud moments of humor. Excellent GIF game. I’ve fallen in love with your pets and mourned the losses. And the recipes!!!
Groupthink has made me a better, wiser person.
How about you?
