Estrogen Month - Day 15

Beware the ides of feminist pop-culture bloggers! Today's spotlight is on a lass who calls herself Lake Desire, blogging at New Game Plus, whose motto is "Dismantling Patriarchy One Video Game at a Time." Her latest post is a rebuttal to a variation on that same old "but we can't see you women, you're obviously not blogging or doing comics or whatever!" You may recall this cartoon I put up during Estrogen Month a couple years back:

Yeah, it's real easy not to see any women bloggers when you seem to go out of your way to avoid them!

The guidelines for nominating and voting for feminist pop-culture bloggers during Estrogen Month are outlined here. I'm also hosting the 12th Carnival of Feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy Fans on March 31. The deadline for submissions is March 29, and guidelines are outlined here (please send links via email or use this submission form). Only two submissions received so far, so there's plenty of room to plug your posts!
