You gnawing on that pen is totally the highlight of that Gen X movie trailer. I can’t wait to see it, and yes, it seems a little male-centric, but it also doesn’t seem to be all white, which so many Gen-X things are, so that bodes well.
Now on to the feminist moments of the last decade, of which Double X has a list, and so does our friend Mikki Halpin on Alternet. Mikki’s list is more selective and I found it more useful. I totally agree with her on the top three defining moments being: the Obama election, Rihanna’s battery, and Dr. Tiller’s murder.
What I think is missing is an updated Women in Rock type opus about how women are totally dominating the music world. Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Lady Gaga are arguably the three most powerful music people right now. They’re all ladies and all very different and all super talented and Taylor, at least, writes her own songs as well as other people’s. It seems like super good news for feminism, and for music and for concert-going in 2010. Our Taylor Swift tickets are totally on my fridge right now… — Ada
