Cru-blog on the BBC

A version of my the-trouble-with-lad-mags article was published today on the BBC website. Quite prominently actually! Here's the link. And here's the full, original version (with the c-word!).

I commented on the full original version by the way.

Terrific! Do you think the Carnival of Feminists had anything to do with it...? (She said, hopefully.)

I really liked your piece, glad it's gotten more widespread circulation.

Cruella said...

Actually I think how it got in was I sent it to them and begged... Aaah, shameless self-promotion. But please claim to be influencing the BBC. There's no denying you highlighted the piece and a few weeks later it was run on the front of the BBC. You either influnced them or you are about a month ahead of the national zeitgeist and should be congratulated for that too!

Sisters, please... the national zeitgeist is not "the trouble with lads' mags".

Cruella said...

No? What is it then oh wise one?

Melinda Casino said...

Cru: :D Okay then, I'll slap that on my resume. ;)

Anyways congrats and well done.

The War in Iraq? Dropping Third World Debt? The rising popularity of organic food as an alternative to Intensive battery farming? The debate on stem cell research? Will Cliff Richard get the Xmas Number 1? I sure as hell know what it isn't, and that's "the trouble with lads mags". It's a good article you wrote but lets not get carried away here....

You sad cow. Why do nosy busy bodies like you have to stick your oar into everything? Just because you look like the back end of a bus, why prevent the rest of us from any sort of enjoyment?

I don't like your leftie feminist views on everything, but I wouldn't want to stop you writing about them, or other people reading about them, as it's up to individual choice.

If the women want to make a living modelling in these magazines, and men want to buy them, who are you to say they can't?

I always find it hard to get over the arrogance of people like you that think they have some God given right to tell everyone else what they can and cant do. You pompous tw&t!

Cruella said...

Cat this has gone on too long, I thought you were joking. I was! Of course it's not the national zeitgeist, I was just messing!

NormalMan, you don't sound very normal to me. You claim that you wouldn't want to stop me writing about my lovely leftie feminist views and then you, err, basically tell me to stop writing about them.

Yet more bizarre, in the face of overwhelming evidence, you claim I "look like the back end of a bus". Take a quick peek at my picture dude, I'm really rather gorgeous. I clicked your link but you haven't posted a photo? Did you just not have one handy or are you butt-ugly yourself? I wonder...
