what happened in March

April 1, 2008  |  miscellany

March was jam-packed here at Sugarbutch Chronicles; it was the second highest month of posts (37) and included various topics and discussions. Thank you all for your contributions, your comments and emails, for reading, for disagreeing with me at times, for challenging me.

The new April masthead:

  • The quote – “What’s that I hear? The sound of a thousand girls sighing in cyberspace?” – comes from a comment Janie made on in praise of stretchmarks (thanks Janie! It made me laugh out loud). That stretchmarks post is also the most commented on piece this month … I’m surprised at how much notice that one got, actually. It’s funny how sometimes it’s the little notes scribbled on napkins that end up resonating the deepest.

Sex:

Gender:

  • Femininity & heterosexism discusses gender, specifically the unwanted male attention of femininity, and passing as a femme
  • A rather hateful post went up on the New York Craigslist women-for-women personals in March, with some very strong words about butches and our inadequacy in the lesbian communities. (“Inadequacy” doesn’t describe it – the poster basically blamed butches for all lesbian oppression.) I started writing this up at “lesbian does not =”, and Jesse James responded with a guest post responding, a la Lorde (Jesse started her own blog, too). I finally weighed in with careful, your prejudice is showing.
  • I introduced the new masthead feature with bringing butch back and a rather quick note about how chivalry is deeply feminist

  1. Love the April banner, Sinclair, and thanks for a rich month of reading at SBC!

  2. haha, the new masthead took me by surprise (what can i say, short attention span…i forgot it was a changing feature). i simultaneously thought "ooh, sexy jeans and belt buckle" and "hey! where's the dapper coat-over-the-shoulder picture?"

  3. that masthead is just plain awesome. really, only you can pull off that belt buckle. somehow, you make cocky = charming.

    here's hoping there's way more in the "sex:" section for April – you deserve a little fun, seeing as how it's your birthday month and all.

    in fact, I'm kicking myself for not doing a True Romance setup on you yesterday. "oh look, I spilled popcorn all over you…" ah well.
