Let’s face it: All of us need a little help sometimes.
That’s why we launched a feminist advice column, Ms. Opinionated, back in October 2012. Writer Megan Carpentier served as Ms. Opinionated advice columnist for a year, penning thoughtful answers to questions like “Should people getting married consider how much it will cost their friends to attend the wedding?” (answer: yes) and “What should I do about my friend’s ‘personal brand’ being a slur?” (answer: Listen to this They Might Be Giants song).
Now, we’re relaunching Ms. Opinionated with three great new columnists. You can send in a question on any topic and one of these three smart folks will field it.
SYDETTE HARRY is a writer, performer, and nerd. She tweets and blogs under the name Blackamazon and performs with The Body Ecology Performance Ensemble in New York. She manages it all with ADHD pride.
NICOLE GEORGES is an artist, illustrator, and longtime zinester. She has numerous creative projects, including touring twice with the Sister Spit roadshow and creating adorable animal calendars. Her graphic novel memoir Calling Dr. Laura deals with family, queerness, and identity and was published last year. She is currently a Fellow at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont.
ANDI ZEISLER is a cofounder of Bitch and our current creative and editorial director. She’s the author of the book Feminism and Pop Culture and the coeditor of BitchFest: 10 Years of Cultural Criticism from the Pages of Bitch Magazine. She passes her non-Bitch hours watching television, hanging out with her family, embroidering portraits of dogs, and subscribing to whatever magazines are left on Earth.
Email in your questions right here. Don’t be shy—feel free to ask about big issues like race, gender, and sexuality or personal things like dating and family. Your identity will always remain anonymous. Feel free to address your question to a specific columnist or leave it open to any of the three to take it on.
