Welcome Newbies

Dear New Friends,

I want to take a minute and extend a warm welcome to those of you who are new to Rosie Says. This past week has been a blur of awesome, thanks to the letter I wrote to a street harasser on the gender site Role/RebootI mean, come on, Paul Tompkins retweeted me, how could I beat that? (Maybe if Tina Fey retweeted… a girl can dream, you know?)

Before you poke around (and please do!) let me give you the lay of the land. This is my personal blog about things that I find interesting, mostly in the categories encompassed by a triple venn diagram: gender/sex, media, and politics. Sometimes, of course, I stray off into the internet corners dedicated to food or sports or books or other things that grab my mind for a minute or a month. There are also regular features (like guest posts from experts on things I know nothing about) and recurring questions, like what makes a show feminist? Check out the About tab above for other places I’ve been published and a more thorough explanation of what this whole shebang is about.

I love to hear from you guys, and your feedback this past week has made it impossible for me to stop grinning. Feel free to comment here, or find me on Facebook, tweet at me, or email me at sayhitorosie AT gmail DOT come.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Wow! I just discovered your blog and I’m digging it. Props for your dev background and I love how you incorporated “corollary” into everyday terms. My name is also Emily and I think my future is in dev. Cheers!

    • Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! I wouldn’t say I have a “dev” background per se, or that I’m even remotely conversational in dev-speak, but I am starting to pick up a few vocabulary words here and there.

  2. I read your essay on Role/Reboot via a friend’s Facebook share, & I am thrilled to dive into more of your writing. Thanks so much for being an honest, opinionated & hilarious voice on so many things that are important! (to me, & in general) My current & wonderful partner is much more of a square than I am, so it’s fantastic to read some articulate explanations of issues that I’m struggling to share without sounding reductionist & defiant. Keep up the fabulousness & thanks again!

    Saw you on Freshly Pressed and you’ve got some great feminist writing I think is accessible (and important) for men. I’m new to following fellow WordPress bloggers. I can’t find a button to follow you with via WordPress. Any ideas?
