Ready and Willing

Howdy, Howdy,

I am proud to announce that Queef is pretty much off the ground and rolling … rolling around in the cesspool of on-line journals and web-blogs … but we are honored to be in your company.

Our guidelines are official. Our mission is grounded. We are are just holding our vaginal breath and getting ready for one big not-silent-but-fragrance-free-and-deadly Queef!

Our goal is to eventually receive enough regular submissions to publish weekly on-line content. In the meantime, though, we will be updating you on our quest for identity, news blogs, and bitchy rants.

If you’re just checking back on our progress, you have probably noticed our deleted use of “thirdwave” feminism, and it’s replacement with “fringe” feminism. This will be the subject of conversation for the next upcoming weeks, as we have found in feminist theory a real lack of coherency on what thirdwave actually represents, a solid definition of the “movement,” (or when it even started, for christ’s sake.) But don’t get too caught up in the identity issue. If you’ve got some strong material you want to send our way, please do.

Also, if you’ve got a cool link we’re missing – let us know! If you’ve got a small press you want promoted/reviewed – let us know! If you’ve got some news worth ranting about – let us know! If you want to write regularly for our website – let us know! If you’ve recently been mauled by a tiger in a California zoo or have been disqualified from the Olympics because you have prosthetic legs – keep it to yourself, poor little tink-tink!
