Tiger Beatdown ftw!

Just a quick one today: a link to a beautifully-written takedown of a NYT video about a trans woman, at Tiger Beatdown. ETA: I failed to note that the post linked to was written, in fact, by C.L.Minou, of The Second Awakening, an excellent blog about life, love and the trans experience.

And let me add that Tiger Beatdown is one of the absolute best sites on the web for feminist critique of pop-culture. Check out her series on the Apatovian oeuvre, particularly.

Our Sady of the Immaculate Exclamation is an acerbically funny writer, with her +5 Vorpal Trollbane Keyboard being particularly effective in her Tigerly Beatdowns (please note that gaming metaphors are the sole responsibility of this author, and in no way are meant to imply that Sady is a gamer, though she's frequently got game).

Re: Sady is all you say she is, but...

You're absolutely right, and I was really unclear about the line between blog and post. I'll fix it right away. :)

I do come by TSA, actually, just haven't yet found anything I wanted to comment to. You're on my regular patrol, though.

Sorry about the attribution confusion.

Warmly,

No probs, Cait, and thank you again for the linky goodness!

Let me add that I am a big fan of everything you do at Shakesville, where I hope one day to make "what Cait said" a common meme :)
