In The Desert


I encountered an online magazine titled Motherboard and was captivated by it.

This is what Motherboard says about Motherboard:

"Motherboard is your friendly travel guide to future culture, made up of news, finds, and conversations about the edgier side of human progress, with an emphasis on the human. (But we'd like to make it clear that we have nothing against the robots.) Launched as an Internet video channel on VICE's VBS.tv in 2009, Motherboard has evolved into an online magazine made up of text and video, exploring our uncanny futures and surprising histories to get a better sense of our bizarre present."

Feminazi [fem-uh-naht-zee]

Feminazi is a term popularized by radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. In 2004, Limbaugh named feminist activists Gloria Steinem, Susan Sarandon, Christine Lahti, and Camryn Manheim as "famous feminazis." Feminazi is a portmanteau of the nouns feminist and Nazi. The term is used pejoratively by some U.S. conservatives to criticize feminists that they perceive as extreme. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the term describes "an extreme or militant feminist"

Stephen Glenn "Steve" Martin is an American actor, comedian, author, playwright, producer, musician and composer. Martin came to public notice as a writer for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and later became a frequent guest on The Tonight Show. In the 1970s, Martin performed his offbeat, absurdist comedy routines before packed houses on national tours. In 2004, Comedy Central ranked Martin at sixth place in a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comics.


A feminazi is a sexist. A feminist is a supporter of womens' rights.
