One more for the Honors List

Old Hag officially joins the book/daddy blog roll for unleashing this hilariously foul-mouthed tirade against the Atlantic Monthly, a periodical which has mounted an insidiously anti-feminist, pro-traditional business-and-class campaign by regularly employing Caitlin Flanagan, Lori Gottlieb and Virginia Postrel, among others.

Next up: the Atlantic runs a cover story on how women's hot flashes are responsible for global warming. Especially successful women's hot flashes. And women without children. And successful, attractive women without children who didn't hop into bed with us. What's the matter with these women?

For the Hag's little aria of well-earned scorn: Brava. You may well eclipse Jessa Crispin as our favorite, delightfully crabby female litblogger.
