"I’m not going to be worshipped by some powerful, loaded, sword-wielding man who will change my life if I marry him. Because that is Aragorn, son of Arathorn, and he doesn’t exist.
I don’t want some alpha-y patriarchal brute- some confident man of action who will treat me like “his woman.” When PJ O’Rourke said, “No woman ever dreamed of being thrown on a bed and ravished by someone dressed as a liberal,” I wished to cry, “Speak for yourself, dear! You are scarcely qualified to judge. When was the last time you were in All Bar One in your Spanx, eyeing up the ass?” In the modern world, this old-fashioned notion of what makes men desirable to women is useless and outdated, as evidenced by the fact that it’s usually only people over the age of 40 who ever go on about it.
…Speaking for all my lady friends, we all want some geeky, nerdy, polite, and ridiculous mate whom we can sit at home with, slagging off all the tossers, and waiting for our baked potatoes to be ready. Who, obviously, is additionally so hot for us the regularly crawls on across the front room on his hands and knees, croaking, “I must have sex with you now , or go literally insane.” Compared to that, Prince Charming looks like a total donk.

Check out this great listen on Audible.co.uk. What do you do in your teenage years when you realise what your parents taught you wasn’t enough? You must go out and find books and poetry and pop songs and bad heroes - and build yourself. It’s 1990. Johanna Morrigan, 14, has shamed herself so badly…
BAT-LIN MORAN! Awful pun! I am posting this to do something other than celebrate the awesomeness of Caitlin Moran though!
I am the kind of person who writes about 70% of all my writing by hand. I thought it would be a crazy cool idea to do some blogging by hand, and the first fling with that is up on my blog blog now. It’s got Caitlin Moran and Batman and is totally written by hand!
Whoop! FYCM just hit 4000 followers and I didn’t notice. THANKS GUYS.
To celebrate I made something terrifying. All thanks/apologies go to the photographer of the original shoot, Louise Haywood-Schiefer.
