1) Hi, this is my blog and chose two years ago to make it public to racists and non-racists alike. Therefore, I receive all different kinds of folks stopping in all the time, regardless of who is “protecting” me.
2) “Protection” from Feministe is not something I requested and/or need. That’s what moderation is all about.

4) Thanks for a good Monday morning laugh.
