Feminist Flashback #3 (and links!)

It just occurred to me that I completely forgot to post a feminist flashback video this past Sunday. To make up for it, I'll not only post the highly entertaining video of Walt Disney's 1946 animated short The Story of Menstruation, but also a quick round-up of other interesting links from the past few days.

Come really don't want to miss the menstruation film. It'll only take ten minutes and afterward you will feel edified with the knowledge that it's okay to vacuum and dance with boys and do all the sorts of things you would "normally do" when you have your period (I suppose if you're really pressed for time, you can just fast forward to the middle and watch from there, but don't you want to see how the pituitary gland works?)

(H/T AD Miller)

And, some links:

Hillary Clinton on the economy (from The Wall Street Journal): Let's Keep People in Their Homes (H/T Fewthistle).

Last night's Late Show with David Letterman in which Letterman expresses rightful indignation that McCain canceled his appearance on the show, lied about the reason and then stood Letterman up to speak to Katie Couric instead. Yes. For real.

On Appetite for Equal Rights: Sarah Palin on Katie Couric.

Jump off the Bridge on Bush and the Economy: Oops, the Dog Ate the Economy.

And, of course, if you haven't had enough of the linkage yet, the most recent Carnival of Feminists is up at Green Gabbro.

Oooh, thanks for the link!

That video is absolutely hilarious by the way. The funniest thing about it is that it's supposed to be serious. Oh my, good laughs. said...

I know! The educational sounding Disney voice-over, the Snow White-looking characters, the passive voice when they talk about babies (this is what would happen if pregnancy should know, magically, with a stork). Although, I guess for 1946, it's not too bad.
