On DIY Opression by Meg Keene Did you guys see that Jessica Valenti of Feministing was the subject of ‘Questions’ in the New York Times Magazine yesterday? She wasssss, and it might or might not be on our fridge now. And we’re just going to ignore the stupidity of the title of the article: Fourth-Wave Feminism. But. Anyway. I needed to quote her here, for all of you who are feeling oppressed by the DIY aspect of non-mainstream weddings, and lets face it, *any* kind of wife-dom: I’m not a D.I.Y. feminist. I once tried knitting a scarf but threw it away after 15 minutes. Right? So stop making yourself feel bad about all the DIY you’re not doing, and have a cocktail while you read the interview, and make yourself wiser. Done.
