Belated big-ups

It’s been a bit remiss of us to have failed to welcome The Hand Mirror into the left blogosphere. I’ve only just had a proper look at it and I’ve got to say it is gold. Sort of like one of those action movies where half a dozen superheros get together to save the world. Except feminist and smarter and with a better plot-line and not a movie (I’m also pretty sure a blog can’t save the world but I don’t really want to admit that). Come to think of it that was a stupid analogy. Nonetheless The Hand Mirror is definitely a welcome addition to the sphere and definitely a must-read.

    Also to Ms Negative Pants in the first comment (sorry for the delay, had other stuff to do) gee you sure seem to be in a bad mood today. Still, better you make anonymous nasty comments on some blog somewhere than kick your poor dog! Hope you felt better after you hit submit.

    Yeah, I stumbled on this one earlier, too. It’s really good, and anyone who’s not rabidly antifeminist is going to like it, I think. 🙂

    No offence I was just stating that the blog was not my kind of thing.

  6. Thanks, Standardistas. Only just saw this post – I have been somewhat out of action because my parents have been visiting – lots of talking and drinking and very little blogging or even blog-reading.
