Adding "Feministing" to the sidebar

It's a good site. Got there via recent Majikthise post regarding Jessica Valenti, one of the coauthors of the blog who has also recently written a book entitled "Full Frontal Feminism". What impresses me about the site is that it's actually connected to the real world and not bogged down in theory and minutia. It's also connected to actual, as in the real world, feminist organizing, which is something that other sites can't say for themselves. Even though I'm somewhat of a bystander in this I know enough to say that actually orienting your work to the real world is far more productive than going nuts because someone used the wrong word or phrase in an article or comment. Naval gazing purism vs. a political perspective that's actually aware of the outside world, I'll let you be the judge of which is the more productive.
