This Week in Feminist Music:

In response to the anti-woman treatment of stars like Lindsay Lohan, Juliana Hatfield responds to double standards in the entertainment industry in her new song There's Always Another Girl (For Lindsay Lohan). Here's a taste of the lyrics:
Oh people love it when a beautiful woman self destructs
Like a bird in a cage or a bug under glass people point but don’t touch
But beautiful boys get away with so much, they get away with murder
They can be wasted and dirty and cruel because they know there’s always another girl

Man, your Google Reader relationship with Erin makes me so jealous.

Hats off to Juliana Hatfield, but I'm going to continue passing the basically-porno Fornarina catalog of Lindsay Lohan photos that I got at the sample sale around my office.

Maybe you should pass the song around along with the catalog and teach your workmates a thing or two about feminism.
