...a white dude named Bryan Goldberg has just raised $6.5 million to start a "feminist" website.
Isn't it time for a women's publication that puts world news and politics alongside beauty tips? What about a site that takes an introspective look at the celebrity world, while also having a lot of fun covering it? How about a site that offers career advice and book reviews, while also reporting on fashion trends and popular memes?

I don't care how awesome Bryan Goldberg is (or isn't) or how well (or badly) he uses that $6.5 million. The point is: A feminist woman who wanted to launch an explicitly feminist online space would never get that kind of funding.

In other news, I am fundraising for Shakesville.
