At least I'm a "cute" baby eater...

Nate:
your blog is taking heavy criticism from my right-wing friends
i had dinner with them tonight

Me:
well was it a well informed conversation?

Nate:
no
Aliza Shvarts was the next topic of conversation
Jim and Pam** (from the NYE party) were present, and they took your side with me
that you're actually a good person, with intelligent rational views on feminism
Pam said you were cute and seemed intelligent

Me:
and the rest said what? i was fat and illiterate?

Nate:
no, Jack Cashill* wasn't too open minded about your blogs apparently
as he brought up that fox news article immediately afterward
thinking that was the end-all-be-all of feminism

Me:
all feminists play with aborted fetus juice

Nate:
yeah, something to that effect
I'd like to see the two of you in the same room together
you're both really awesome people
with EXTREMELY different views
...
I don't think he's met someone who can explain it well (like you)
he just sees that feminists kill their fetuses for art projects and sort of assumes that's the main line you all toe
it's obviously not fair nor open-minded
but he really needs to meet someone like you to convince him otherwise I think
