…I came across some great coverage of The Dresden Files from QueerTransGeek [blog since deleted]. I’m not even going to attempt to sum up anything because you should really go there and read the whole thing. QTG examines both the stereotypical roles a lot of the females are resigned to, but also points out that this is one of the few shows in its genre than even bothers to feature lesbian or bi- characters (even if they’re laden with stereotypes in many cases, too).
Even if you’ve never seen the show, the article provides a lot of food for thought.
And The Happy Femimist is back after a hiatus (yay!) with a review of The Wicker Man. Actually, it’s not so much a review as a send-up of the misogynistic themes, which become unintentionally funny as the poorly executed film struggles along. If you’ve ever wondered where in the world men are coming from when they claim that women have all the power with their ability to use sex and birthin’ against men, this post covers one example of the textbook of Woman Blamers 101.
