Save Feminist Bloggers' Jobs

After reading more attacks against Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan and more demands that the John Edwards campaign fire them both, I created a T-shirt that expresses my opinion of this situation.

This T-shirt is available at my Cafepress shop.

With all the stuff conservatives say while maintaining they are mainstream we can't afford to let them banish feminist bloggers.

Update: One of those demanding the firing of the feminist bloggers is William A. Donohue, president of the conservative Catholic League. He had this to say about Rep. Mark Foley's statement that he was sexually abused by a Catholic priest:

"As for the alleged abuse, it’s time to ask some tough questions. First, there is a huge difference between being groped and being raped, so which was it Mr. Foley? Second, why didn’t you just smack the clergyman in the face? After all, most 15-year-old teenage boys wouldn’t allow themselves to be molested. So why did you?"

This is victim blaming plain and simple. No wonder he doesn't like feminist bloggers. They have no tolerance for victim blaming or minimizing sexual abuse.
