"Fourth Wave Feminism"

That's the title for page on Jessica Valenti, the founder/editor of the popular blog feministing.com, sitting for a NYT Mag Q & A this Sunday and here's some of her points:

--feminists burning bras is a myth--never happened.
--"We're the most widely read feminist publication there is."
--The "new model of masculinity is perpetual adolescence."
--Repeated references to rape on Family Guy "make me nauseous."
--She recently got married and they have "instituted an 8 p.m. laptop shut. You have to."  

Oh, the irony: The magazine's cover image shows Megan Fox being attended to by multiple makeup artists.
