Saturday Blog Salad

  • Zooey Deschanel is a fucking feminist! She doesn't annoy me as much as she does to other people. I actually think she's pretty cute in "Elf." Yeah, "Elf" is my fave Zooey movie. But the news is that she comes out as a feminist, a raging feminist in the latest Glamour magazine. And thus, I gotta love her for this moment. Of course, this then leads to ponder, why do feminists (Tina Fey, looking at you!) take roles that are not very feminist? 
  • There's another call for men to stand up for women at conferences. This time the focus is on tech conferences and for all men to take a pledge to not speak on all-dude panels.Sadly the public list was taken down due to trolls who think it's ok to have all dude panels. Big sigh. Of course we are just weeks from SXSW and I'm sure there will be a lot of reports of all-dude panels. How many do you think there will be? Let me know in the comments and we'll get a pool going.
  • Do you love books? Then apply to give away copies of (perhaps your favorite) books, then head over to World Book Night US 2013. Deadline to apply is three weeks away!
