Speaking of Sungold, she pointed me at the Which Western Feminist Icon Are You? quiz

My result: "You are bell hooks (no capital letters)! You were one of the first black wymyn to discuss in public spaces the differences between being a black womyn and being a black man or a white womyn. You are the mother of intersectionality and you couldn't care less about identity politics. Thanks for making feminism accessible and calling the white, middle class wymyn on their bullshit!"

That's pretty cool, because I think intersectionality is critical. Everything intersects and connects, nothing is isolated in its own separate sociocultural pigeonhole. (Which is why I seldom use the word "patriarchy" except ironicallysnarkastically; I prefer Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza's coinage kyriarchy.)

That means I have some reading to do, though - I don't know as much about bell hooks as I'd like to/should.

Several of those on my f'list will have already seen this, but it's much too funny to not post about.  If you have any familiarity with the poem "The Rede of the Wiccae", it's priceless.

LJ is not doing what I'd like with links, so you'll have to either go to [personal profile] elisem's LJ and look for the late-January entry titled, "Not... my... fault...," or cut-and-paste to your URL bar:  http://elisem.livejournal.com/1191707.html (unless it translates to a link automatically; I don't expect it to, but I don't always figure these things right).

If you want to compare with the original, it can be found at http://www.wiccanrede.dreamhost.com/wiccae.html .  Or, if you read the comments on Elise's post - which is worth doing if you have the time; some of them are pretty funny too - IIRC she gives a link in one of her responses.

Ganked from [profile] corwinnx:

"If you and I were alone in a room right now, what would we be doing?


Now post this in YOUR LJ, and see what people wanna do with you."

Corwinnx posted that a week ago; I've been paying attention to things other than LJ for a bit.  But I find it more interesting than most of the quiz-memes, which for me overrides the timespan thing.

I don't usually go in for quiz-memes, but I couldn't resist this one, found via [profile] superversive .  I'm very pleased with the result; I've been an admirer for several years.

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You
go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand
head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing
and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or
conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common
sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet.
You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the
screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who
like strong women.

Drat.  I have no idea where the foulup was, and have no interest in spending the time trying to fix it by trial-and-error.
