Tracie’s cool. I think I got into a fight with her once but she handled it very well—with humor and without reaching for the ban hammer or other lame power-tripping hijinx.
She also has pretty impeccable feminist credentials—I think she might’ve even written for Sassy at some point?!
I guess I come from more of the punkrock chick band side of feminism. That means I have an infinite tolerance for un-PC crap, as long as it’s funny and not racist. Conversely, I have a very low tolerance for long-winded, square, boring, dogmatic sh*t.”—

the fuck is this bullshit? so, racism is the only unacceptable form of oppression? awesome.
any time people refer to non-exclusionary language as being PC, i automatically stop listening to them about social justice.
i assume they’re talking about tracie egan morrissey (who i am pretty sure is too young to have written for sassy, by the way). she’s funny, no doubt, and a really good writer, but she’s not exactly my feminist role model - she’s often willfully obtuse.
