Thoughts over the last 24 hours while writing a term paper on the Third Wave for my feminist theory class:

1. It turns out that outlining is vastly more enjoyable when you include things like "and here is a discussion of Jessica Valenti's chapter on men and feminism WHICH SEGUES BRILLIANTLY into a section on the positive and negative implications of female-dominated spaces, EFFORTLESSLY MOVING THROUGH A TRIPLE TOE LOOP on Mother Courage."

2. Best line so far: "At the time of The Beauty Myth's original publication, the Third Wave was nascent at best; given the 1990 publication date, Wolf and Rebecca Walker were apparently thinking thinky thoughts concurrently. This is awesome and there should be fanfiction, especially if they make out."

HELP HELP HELP TERM PAPER IS MORE CRACKTASTIC BY THE PARAGRAPH.

2a. Sweet puppies, I think wanting femslash about third-wave feminists is probably a cardinal sin of some kind. I fear bell hooks will take my 'certified feminist' card away in my sleep.
 
3. Can I use the phrase 'sufficiently fuckable' in my discussion of The Beauty Myth? Please? (ie, "Naomi Wolf is more forgiving. She allows for the secret world created by the beauty myth, where women compete against each other for the dubious prize of being found sufficiently fuckable.")

I am 99% sure I just typed that "the inequalities of sexism defang both men and women."

Oh my God, I need sleep.
