Everyone Loves a Generational Catfight

So, I see today on Feministing that they got some press in the New York Times.
And then I click on the link and read the article, and I can't believe that all they had to say about it was to give a "shout out" to Jessica for getting her picture in the paper.
So while I'm mentally forming my blog post about how conflicted I feel about the article (how great it is that the feminist movement is getting attention but how annoying it is that feminists can't seem to avoid being positioned in a generational catfight), I come across Amanda's post about the whole thing, in which she says exactly what I wanted to, and much better than I ever could.
Thanks, Amanda.
I was going to put some quotes in here, but the whole thing is too good.  Just go read it.
