I skipped my Feminst Issues post last week because I didn't reblog anything.
Time Magazine thought they were being cute by including the word feminist in a poll listing words to be banned from usage. I liked this response. On Twitter, some made fun of Time by referencing The Princess Bride.

A Tweet about how women respond to catcallers by saying they have a boyfriend.
So a probe was landed on a comet! Fantastic science news! Unfortunately a senior scientist showed up to a news briefing wearing a bowling shirt with pinup drawings of scantily clad women on it, and he made a sex-related joke about the probe, Philae, saying “She’s sexy, but I never said she was easy.” Nice. The controversy was under the hashtag #ShirtStorm on Twitter. This article on Slate sums it up nicely, including a link to this. And this is another good article on the Scientific American website.
