Bottling profit, not altruism

I just posted over at BlogThis about Starbucks' ridiculous new campaign to save the world's water by selling more bottled water. I kid you not. Check it out here.

Camping on inclusive ground ...

Hey everyone -- I'm back on the column-writing train, and I'm actually very excited about the one that came out today in Capital Xtra (check it). It's where my brain has been at lately -- thinking about how to incorporate feminism into a queer perspective, and how to move queer activism into a more feminist space. I feel like mainstream feminism has a lot of sins to atone for -- especially against the trans community.

So read, enjoy, discuss. And really, no offence is meant toward all of you lovely women who do attend Michfest -- I value and support the concept of women-only spaces, and I am especially encouraged by the yellow armband movement to support the inclusion of trans women at the fest.
