Back on The F-Word

// 12 May 2009

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for KS075col.jpgHello all. Just to let you know that I am back doing another stint of guest blogging on here. On a bit of a roll at the moment after spotting and writing about this horrid abomination on my own blog this afternoon. More like that to follow shortly.

A quick note before I get started though. The F-Word is a group blog and aims to provide a “safe” environment for feminist bloggers and blog-readers. That’s great. It does mean that they’re fairly strict on not allowing more aggressive commenting. I’m all in favour of that but over at my own blog I have a slightly different policy of letting almost any comments stay up – I figure give the idiots enough rope and they’ll hang themselves…!

Anyway I always repost pieces I write for the F-Word on my blog so…

If you want to say something controversial and/or outrageous – come do it at my place.

If you want to feel “safe” from aggressive comments, stay here.

Just so you know.

Welcome back!

I like the idea of there being different spaces to discuss a topic, with varying levels of ‘safeness’ or troll-inclusion, to give people with different ways of tackling the argument a chance to answer.

I look forward to seeing your posts. :)

Lovely to see you back Kate! I like your attitude to the trolls – although it can all get a bit wearing reading incessant moronic nastiness, so nice to know that the F-word is a safe space. Sounds like some of the comments on your blog might be quite good for a laugh – will make a change from the Daily Fail website which is how I often get my lunchtime jollies (so sad…..)
