More on the March

I've pushed back on Matt Stoller in a couple of places over at BOPNews - here and here.

Reading various commentary around the web (not just Matt's) about this march makes me gnash my teeth at how far even many Democrats and those on 'the left' still have to go when it comes to having a real clue about women's issues. The constant laments that there are few-to-no female bloggers is but the tip of one iceberg, but it serves to demonstrate how male-centered and male-focused even the most modern form of political discourse is. It's just maddening.

I didn't say there were no female bloggers. What precisely is your critique?

Note the phrase "not just Matt's" please. And note that the mention of the laments about the lack of female bloggers was in a separate sentence. And consider that not everything is about you. Yes, your complaints about the March for Women being media-savvy were what prompted the post, but I expanded the topic to include other recent blogosphere topics as well.

I started to comment here, but then I decided to post in Matt's blog instead. Those comments don't have permalinks or trackbacks, but it's in the first post you've linked.
