All my respect to Naomi Dunford of

She's getting some serious crap from a couple of hate bloggers and their supporters, and she has this to say about it:

"These people are planning a hate crime, and they are relying on me hiding in silence to succeed.

And, yes. I will hide. But I will not be silenced.

I have devoted my life to making sure you can bring your kids to Disney World and send them to college and pay for their overpriced  weddings, and hell if I’m going to stop now.

Because this isn’t about me. I have the resources to protect myself. I have the support of a strong community with loud voices and far reaches. I have a contact list full of experienced friends who can give me crash course media training at 11 o’clock on a Sunday night.

This is about innocent women bloggers getting attacked for trying to make a go of it online. This is about all the people who are petrified when they get hate mail and don’t know who to ask for help. This is about smaller bloggers, and newbies, and women just finding their voice.

They don’t have what I have. They don’t have YOU. And they need you today.

What you can do:

Today, I’d like to ask you to do a few things for me.

First, please share this. You know how.

Second, do something amazing today – write, create, share – and do it as loud as you can.

WE know we can never be silenced. Now it’s time to show THEM.

They will not stop me. Don’t let them stop you."

Here is one of the niftier things the internet has brought me recently (courtesy of [ profile] gabrielleabelle ): 

"Here at The Girls on Film, we take great film scenes between men and recreate them with women."

So far there are three: scenes from The Town, Fight Club and Star Trek. The last is the only one I've watched, since I haven't seen the source material for the other two -- but I've watched it about six times. I'm kind of in love with lady Pike, and if I wanted to be James T. Kirk already, well -- this cements it.

Also, I'm creating a "topic: feminism" tag -- I can't think why I didn't have one before, except that feminism informs my take on everything, so I'm not sure there's a purpose to tagging it. But hey, there it is.
