Calling Out

I think the kinds of things things Jill is talking about here were much bigger part of this humble blog's existence years ago than they are now, but they're still relevant. Some things are a bit more specific to the online feminism culture, but I think anyone with a semi-popular blog has dealt with many of the things she talks about.

I have a better filter now, I think, and am better able to distinguish between people who are actually interested in the activism/cause/candidate/issue they claim to be interested in and those who just want daily affirmation of their belief that everybody and everything notthem sucks. Still, as Jill says, the internet is a big place. I don't have it all jacked into my head at all times. Sometimes I'm busy with other stuff. Sometimes I have nothing to add.
