I’m on a biiiiit of an Alanis kick. Also, this song is just so well-written and deals with statutory rape in an interesting and (almost painfully) honest way.
“This beats Madame Tussauds. I am sold.”
Me too. This is hilarious, but I think it also makes the statues seem far more realistic than they often do. So often I look at beautifully carved statues and they seem so far away from me as characters. Once clothed, though, they almost look like real people, and their gestures are so much easier to comprehend.
But mostly, this is just hilarious.
“But wait, why do “real women” necessarily have to have curves? Are skinny women not real? I mean, aren’t we all technically real? I’m pretty sure having a pulse constitutes being real. […] And if a woman doesn’t have what it is that is labeled “real”, then what is she? Fake? An inferior? A woman who’s failed at life? Maybe we should all just kill ourselves.”
“A ballet dancer struggling with anorexia is no more or less woman than a woman struggling with morbid obesity. In fact, they’re both the victims of society’s insistent emphasis on the way women look as opposed to who they are. If that’s not reality, I don’t know what is.”
This article knows where it’s at.

STAN LEE, CENTERFOLD (photograph by Eliot R. Brown)
When Stan Lee visited New York in January 1983, the editorial staff was at the peak of its yuk-yuk, hand-buzzer giddiness. They’d been shooting photos of each other in superhero costumes for some of the covers—several staff members appeared on the cover of the last issue of SPIDER-WOMAN—and now they were putting together a comic that consisted wholly of photos of intra-office hijinks. They wanted to include Stan the Man. Lee, the original ringmaster, jumped at the chance to pose for a nude centerfold. Marvel staffers photographed Lee with an oversize comic book covering his private parts; soon after, they received a call from his assistant in L.A. “Stan is wild,” said the assistant. “He should not have been naked for your centerfold. Please. Don’t.” (A Hulk costume was later superimposed over Lee’s body in postproduction.)

UPDATE: Photographer Eliot R. Brown adds, “Stan indeed kept his fire-engine-red bikini briefs on—very business-like, I must add. You’d have thought he did this every day.”
This young woman is very well-spoken, and has a wonderful grasp on feminism (that is, the idea that feminism is not a rulebook). I’m definitely going to be checking out her Rookie magazine in the next little while. It sounds like the kind of thing I’d like to be involved in.
Also, just be Stevie Nicks. Love it!
