Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    I definitely agree. And to go along with the sentiment of this post, I want to put a link to a female blogger I follow regularly, Ragnell.

    She mostly talks about comic books and feminist issues (with a sideline into literary characters and their behaviors), though she doesn't have much to say about Doctor Who. But she's ferociously intelligent, even if she can't update as much as I'd like because of her job in the army. If nothing else, she's really taught me about the potential of Wonder Woman as a character, who I'd always been dismissive of before.

    Missed this post yesterday, but definite props for coming out in support of feminist bloggers and big ups for mentioning DC Women Kicking Ass, which I follow regularly and whom I'd like to consider one of my Internet friends. We've had quite a few stimulating discussions/communal rants about the portrayal of women in popular media as it's one of my huge pet peeves as well.

    I'd also like to submit lesbian culture site, which just launched a new column about psychoanalyzing elements of contemporary pop culture: It reminded me a great deal of the work Phil does here and well worth perusing. Also, which, although originally created as a safe haven for gay male nerds has grown to be a great gathering place for everyone across the GLBTQ spectrum and their allies. I'm quite involved over there too and can definitely speak for the sincerity of the community.

    Other fantastic female writers you should definitely be paying attention to are Carolyn Michelle from GameSpot, Sara Lima from ComicVine, Laura Hudson from Comics Alliance, Blair Butler, Morgan Webb and Abbie Heppe from G4 and Heather Anne Campbell from…Heather Anne Campbell, which is a pretty cool place to be writing from. They're all fantastic people and some of the most brilliant and erudite people I've ever had the honour to dialog with. Go show them some support.

    I may have my disagreements with Phil from time to time, but I couldn't agree more with him here, support his call to arms 100% and would support him more were it mathematically possible. It's very true so much of the best work in academia is done by feminists, but it's also sadly true women still suffer such intense marginalization and misrepresentation in society and female bloggers in particular can have the most horrific things said and done to them by just speaking their mind and being themselves. We can all work together to make the Internet, and the world, a nicer place for everyone to live and communicate, so let's start now.

    I've always been the odd man out. when I was very young, my FAVORITE tv show was FIREBALL XL5, where the hero was an astronaut-policeman, and his GIRLFRIEND was a doctor. So I grew up always believing that men and women were and should treat each others as equals.

    But then the world around me was inhabited by men who thought women were there to be taken advantage of or used or "owned", and women who felt that all men were stupid cavemen to be looked down upon. Where is "MY" Venus? MY Billie Young? MY Sarah-Jane? (Or my Jo Grant, for that matter?)

    Tragically, my father had what apparently was a pathelogical distrust and hatred for most women. And growing up with THAT made it EXTREMELY difficult to put filter out his bad influence completely no matter how forward-thinking I was trying to be. I sometimes think he never should have married. And when anyone responds to THAT statement that I wouldn't have been born then, I say, NONSENSE, I just would have been born to OTHER parents. (That's how I see the universe working, anyway…)

    Huh. I am still catching up from over a decade behind, and this post is sadly still timely, yet also reads significantly differently due to your own changes…
