Feminists don't have a sense of humor?! Have a listen...

[UPDATE: the host of the following blog is not from Greece, but rather, from Australia. Good to know there's a strong anarchist-feminist voice there! Rock on, anarchofemme!!!]
All that follows is from here, at an anarchist feminist's blog, from Greece, with the wonderful title:
I find it hilarious that in the Youtube comments on this video, some people insist ‘but she’s making fun of feminists…’. No wonder our anti-feminist friends think feminists lack a sense of humour, if they cannot even discern when someone is using irony…

Thanks for using my post Julian and for the Andrea Dworkin audio! It's nice to see my stuff passed through the net! I'm not actually from Greece (I'm from Australia actually), it's just a place I find very interesting.

Funny thing, I was actually reading your blog for the first time the other day - the email conversation between a man from the US and one from Australia about pornography. Very interesting stuff. Keep up the great work!

P.S. Isn't Nellie Mckay wonderful!

I'm really enjoying your blog, anarchofemme, and hope you have strong community there in Australia.

Thanks so much for the info, the compliment, and for doing what you do! And yes, Nellie McKay is brilliant!

I'm glad to have made the connection with you. Let me know if there are ways I can be helpful to your efforts. Anything you communicate that you don't want posted to the blog here, just write "Not for posting" or whatever, and that'll alert me to keep it out of public view.
