"I wish there was a way to talk about being a woman in the culture without replicating the fact that in this misogynist culture, women get status from how sexually desireable they are. I find a great deal of online feminism to be, to a certain extent, about a kind of performative desireability, which doesn't leave a lot of room for women that society doesn't find desireable--like many Spanish and black females, or Asian females who don't fit certain Orientalist stereotypes (or do), or women who don't have the right body type or who are no longer young--or who don't find themselves desired in their own lives. The media and just living our lives in the world can make us feel bad enough about not being desireable (or with aging, no longer being desireable); it's unfortunate that online feminism compounds this effect in such unthinking ways."

"Around the same time I created MizX I created another ladyblog persona and I called her DarlingBecky (surprise?!!) [...] I chose to set up the most common and illogical racist arguments I was familiar with so that the folks with good sense could knock them down. After all, I’ve been trained to argue both sides.

"The experiment didn’t last long…in part because I am apparently too blatant to pull off subtle satire and in part because I quickly grew bored of being so inane. But in the time DarlingBecky was on the ladyblog she made dozens of purposeful, flat-out ignorant and flagrantly racist comments in the smarmiest tone I could conjure. She offered absolutely nothing of substance. And she was never banned…even after several people pointed out that she was an obvious troll."

"A most wanted list of Asian Pacific Islander American bloggers from across the country will participate in BANANA 2 on February 26, 2011, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the back lot of CBS Studios in Studio City, Calif.

“'We are excited to have a talented group of established and up-and-coming bloggers from the APIA community at this second annual gathering to share their voices, knowledge, endeavors and visions with others – bloggers and non-bloggers, APIAs and non-APIAs,' said Su. 'All of the bloggers expected to attend have unique views of their own community, and will share their progression as an APIA blogger.'”

 "Among the slew of data generated by surveying bloggers from 24 nations, come a bunch of headline figures about bloggers as a species: Two thirds of bloggers are male, and 65% are age 18-44 years old. 81% have been blogging for more than two years, and professionals blog an average of over 10 hours a week. Interestingly, the blogger demographic is "more affluent and educated than the general population," with 79% having college degrees and 43% possessing graduate degrees, too."

"There have been reports after reports being published on studies done by Pew Internet, Sophia Mind, AOL and other researchers, where Latinos are found to be more and more wired and Latina women are setting the pace. According to the report just recently published by Pew Internet, Hispanics are outpacing cellphone use among 16 – 25 age group. The report by Sophia Mind found that more than 85% of Latina women visit social networks. AOL’s report stated, 'Compared to the General Market, Hispanics are more sophisticated technology users. Their use of a wide rate of devices (e.g., smartphones and gaming devices) to access the internet illustrates a high level of comfort with and willingness to try new technologies.' Most importantly, Sophia Mind found that nearly 40% of Latina women say networks lack information that connects with them."

"What is the solution or the response by these women? To create their own blogs."

"So when you’re called a bitch, instead of letting the argument get derailed, recognize that you’ve outsmarted them. Reply with ' win! You aren’t smart enough to continue the conversation, so thanks for ending it.' Once they bust out the ad hominem attack. The personal attack that has absolutely nothing to do with the conversation at hand, the conversation is over. And you win, cause they don’t know how to continue."

"Although there is tight regulation of traditional media in Malaysia, with newspapers requiring an annual licence from the government to publish, there have been no such restrictions online. So far.

But Mr Petra's arrest is being seen by some as evidence that the online free-for-all is about to end. Within hours of his detention, an ethnic Chinese journalist was reportedly arrested. A wider crackdown is feared. "

"In a world of blogging and pagerank, critiquing trolls gives them both literal and figurative capital. That's frustrating as hell."

"When you find yourself in the inevitable currents of our society that always flow towards greater privilege, away from the marginalized, the oppressed, be prepared to swim against that tide. Don’t just stand there and let sand pool around your ankles."
