A brief break from Colbert being On Notice

Here are two more fabulous Charleston feminists who love Colbert (despite his heartbreaking refusal to mention us on his show recently...we are slowly recovering). First is Marni, photographer extraordinaire and full frontal feminist.

And this is Sur, Marni's dog. According to Marni, "He migrated here from the West coast. Was in show biz, now he leads the good life."

Stephen Colbert: On Notice

I'm sure you all saw last night's Colbert Report, when Stephen interviewed feminist blogger Jessica Valenti. Jessica did a great job and sounded smart even when Stephen himself seemed to run out of questions for her. But the big disappointment of this show: Feminists for Colbert got no shout outs at all.

One FFC had this to say:
My heart broke a little, and to be honest, I may love Colbert a little less for not mentioning us in the perfect moment. There were several chances. When she said feminism needed to be fun, umm we are fun feminists! Also, with the t-shirt she gave him, an example of feminists chicks who dig him would have been waranted.
Last night's show would also have been the perfect opportunity for Stephen to show off the autographed Full Frontal Feminism t-shirt we sent him last month...but no.

So Stephen Colbert, you are On Notice. We're going to need to see a little love for your Charleston feminist fanbase, or you may find that you are Dead To Us.

Full Frontal Feminism tonight

Remember that Jessica Valenti is going to be on The Colbert Report tonight. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Feminists for Colbert get a shout-out!

Colbertle the Turtle

Like lots of other cities, Charleston is doing an animal-themed citywide art project, Turtles on the Town. Local artists have painted fiberglass turtles with various Charleston-themed designs. Certain grumpy feminist artists have noted that this kind of project is excellent--if it's 1980. This doesn't surprise those of us at Feminists for Colbert, who have long recognized that Charleston needs to build a bridge to the 20th century.

One of Charleston's art turtles honors "Famous Sons of Charleston." What about the daughters of Charleston, the Pollitzer sisters who were instrumental in having the 19th Amendment passed, or civil rights leader Septima Clark, or abolitionists the Grimke sisters? We at FFC are fairly cynical about this turtle, except for the fact that one little panel on the shell honors our favorite feminist turtle, Stephen Colbert.
