HOLY SHIT. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT, BITCH MAGAZINE?

I think I may girlcott Bitch now... I used to read it, and liked it. But this is especially ironic, that they have the money to sponser strip shows while begging their readers for money. That in itself ain't right, but they are sponsoring an event also sponsored by Hustler. Beyond the f'ing pale. I urge people to write angry letters to Bitch for this.

It's weird too, because I looked at the Bitch website, and couldn't find any reference to their sponsorship of the tease-o-rama.

Hmmm...avoiding accountability much? I think they know there will be and is a brouhaha over that, at best, bad decision, and are trying to avoid the fallout in their readership and the mag over this. I for one, thinks Bitch needs to be accountable for this.

it's an especially bitter pill since they were just asking "all the feminists out there" for a handout like we're all in this together. Not, apparently.

& I actually liked bitch too, because they didn't just cover the usual feminist terrain--the put a lot of time & energy into reporting on what feminists are actually doing in big & little groups around the world.

I know. Bloody hell.

Me too. I found this really disappointing. I mean, it's one thing to publish an article on Tease-O-Rama by a participant, or to give a "full scoop" on the event, including whether it's contradictory feminism-wise; it's a whole nuther thing to sponsor it!
