Bitch is the New Black

Anyone see the return of SNL? Although I don't support Clinton, I don't irrationally hate her with the fire of a thousand suns like some folks. I liked guest host Tina Fey's endorsement of Clinton on Weekend Update...

Tina Fey: I want to say something about those calling Hillary a bitch...yeah, well she is...So am I, so is she (pointing at Weekend Update news host Amy Poehler.) Deal with it.

Bitches get shit done.


She goes on to proclaim, "Bitch is the new black."

I also enjoyed Huckabee's stint on Weekend Update. He seemed very willing to poke fun of himself. Damnit if he's not a likable guy. So's the devil, though.

Also, if you don't read Jessica Valenti and crew's Feministing, you should, because they keep it real over there. The comments section gives me hope that not everyone is still down with bullshit gender concepts designed to keep the woman down. Rise up with fists, y'all. You can see Tina Fey's SNL speech there.

It was quite fitting that I was watching that while working on my feminist critique of family therapy. I agree with Fey and I embrace the bitch. Can't stop men (and women) from using the term to describe a strong woman (or weak man) so I'm taking back the term. I also find the decrease in identification with the term "feminist" by women to be quite interesting. I'm a feminist bitch and I'm happy with that.

I really want a t-shirt that says "Bitch is the New Black." At Momocrats everyone was nominating Tina Fey Hillary's new campaign manager. Hehe.

I think there could totally be a market for "Bitch is the new Black" or "Bitches get shit done" t-shirts. This may be my back-up get-rich-quick scheme if the lottery doesn't work out.
