...who might actually be reading your blog?
I've never given it much thought, to be honest. I look at my Site Meter stats from time to time (latest search words - 'get your tits out for free') but they don't really tell me much about who is reading. I know that regular commenters are regular readers and I guess that bloggers who have this blog on their blogroll look in from time to time but, apart from that, I don't have a clue.
So imagine my amazement on being informed that Sheila Jeffreys had directed someone this way. Yes. Sheila Jeffreys!
It feels like being told that Catharine MacKinnon reads what you write; or Germaine Greer, or Diana Russell or Catherine Itzin, Shere Hite, Julie Bindel, Kate Cook - or any other feminist thinker I've ever been wowed by.
It's kind of scary.
But it's also incredibly validating.
All the self-identified "sex-pos", 'feminist' men in the world can tell me to fuck off - as one or two already have. The radical feminist community is strong and brave and solid - and if sex-pos, 'feminist' men are telling me to fuck off and Sheila Jeffreys knows this blog exists, well, to my mind, I must be doing something right.
