Also, since it’s getting so much hype, it bears mentioning that I am the “Her” in this blog post titled Hipsters and “post-feminism”

The blog belongs to my pal James Minton, who is a cool guy on several levels. He is both an anti-sexist warrior and a devoted anti-Iraq war activist. He wrote a very moving post on Cindy Sheenan’s resignation from the movement and alerted me to the weird, old-world sexism still alive in Europe. Also, he made a incredible movie about the veterans protesting the Iraq War in the ruins of Hurricane Katrina. You can download it here

Our discussion about hipsters has been linked at least three times. First, on Stan Goff’s Feral Scholar blog. Stan is one of my favorite people I’ve never met. He’s a very smart, plain-spoken, Southern progressive.

And on Briar Patch magazine’s The May B-List, next to the likes of Naomi Klein and Seymour Hersh.
