Default Bitch magazine

namely, in the latest issue of B*tch magazine (* added in deference to the no-swear rule). Website here. Sadly, they don't post their articles online (but, hey, it's only $15 per year to subscribe and it's a fabo mag.)

The first sighting(s) are in "Ladies Beware—How fearmongering spam helps keep real threats out of the spotlight," by Niki Papadoupoulos. Several mentions throughout, and a quote from our wonderful host, Barbara. It's a nice feminist take on urban legend warnings.

Second in "Risk Factors—Media sensationalism, adult prurience, and the specter of teen sexuality," by Jacqueline Lally. Mentions Barbara in regard to the Sex bracelet legend.

My favorite magazine and MB.....Yay!

(BTW, Barbara and Snopes, I don't know if you archive, but I'd be happy to send you copies of the article or even buy you the issue if you do).

Snopes.com and Barbara were mentioned in two different articles in the current issue of Bitch. It's pretty cool.

Beat ya to it!

But it's good to know there's another B*tch reader on the boards! And you might be close enough to go to their events. I wish I could.....
