Dear Bitch Media,
I know that everybody and their mother will be blogging tonight about your monumental failure. I for one will offer you constructive criticism in the form of one of my satirical open letters.
The first thing I would like you to know is that if you are going to do something, anything, even if it is walking the dog you should stick to it. Don’t put the leash on the poor hound and say “you know what Rover, never mind. I don’t feel like walking right now.”.
The second thing I would like to point out is that if you are going to do something to shape the minds of our young readers, get your fucking facts straight. Don’t declare yourselves educators, don’t declare yourselves feminists. There are people with degrees in these fields who would have gladly helped out and contributed to your article. Know for sure that the things you are putting out there have a positive message for our kids and if you are going to push boundaries (and please push boundaries, then do it the right way.) What I see as a community manager, is a group of people saying “Hey YA is hot, lists are hot, feminism rocks! Let’s make a list.” That is not good enough.
My last problem with this debacle of idiocy is you censored yourselves due to comments on a blog post. If I took something down every time I got a comment I wouldn’t even have a damn blog. As the great Colleen Lindsay said on Twitter. Grow a pair.
Don’t know what’s up? Check out this post from The Smart Bitches.
