#occupyvday with #femblogalts

What better way to #occupyvday than by showing the blogs we love as alternatives to the big feminist mainstays?  Contributors from all over the Twittersphere suggested must-read blogs for feminists who are sick of Jezebel and its ilk last week, and here’s the list.  Not all of these blogs identify as feminist, but taken as a whole, they definitely espouse the values of Queer Feminism!  Take a look, add your favorites to your RSS feed, and suggest anything we’re missing:

    • Last week, Grace of “Are Women Human?” started the Twitter hashtag #noJez in response to Jezebel’s decision to post photos of a woman being raped on their site. Jezebel has already been criticized by feminists in the past for a number of pieces, but this particular one stirred a lot of conversation in the Twitterverse and decisions to no longer link to Jezebel from other blogs. Thus, the #femblogalts tag as a place to suggest positive alternatives.
