Feminism. Meanwhile, in SL.

Bronwyn Davies, Judith Butler, Wanda Pillow. Yeah, shuddup, I'm finally getting around to reading them. They talk about structuralist things in poststructuralist ways, and work out semantic leapfrogs to get there. But damn, at least they've figured out a practical use for all that decentering.

Meanwhile, in Second Life, my avatar hung out with her favorite SL clothing designer, Hyacynth Tiramisu.

Hyacynth is riding a horse in her clothing shop.

My avatar is getting more and more fanciful. Is this because I'm abstracting my notion of the body from the RL norm, or because I just think it's pretty?
