The Pose That Launched 1,000 Posts

Feministing’s Jessica Valenti found herself at the center of a blogging maelstrom Friday for having the nerve to bring her breasts to a luncheon with President Clinton and other bloggers. Confused? I’d be. Fortunately, Broadsheet has dissected the argument so I don’t have to.

From the comments supporting Jessica, it appears that Feministing has attracted a number of new fans — and plenty of readers who understand that, while our culture has long attacked women’s bodies, the last thing we need are women doing it to other women.
