Alec Baldwin Speaks for Men and “The Ladies”?

by Suzannah Gilman

Reblogged from The Gloria Sirens.

 

For “The Big Question” in their April issue, The Atlantic asks “Who is the greatest fictional character of all time?”   Alec Baldwin brings all his sensitivity and intelligence to bear on this question, as you will see below, by speaking for everyone, not just himself, and by recognizing a difference in the sexes.  Gag.

You can read all of the responses online at The Atlantic here.

(Try not to cringe at the unequal representation of women, both as commenters on the question and as writers whose works are cited in their answers.)

Poll: Have You Had a Hair-Raising Experience?

There is perhaps nothing more devastating than a hair catastrophe.  If you haven’t had one yet, you are very, very lucky.

When Everything Has to Be Absolutely Perfect: My Hair-Raising Experience

by Suzannah Gilman

The Gloria Sirens are posting “hair pieces” today.  This one, by me, makes 6 hair pieces.  Reblogged from The Gloria Sirens.

Before that evening, I hoped that everyone would be stealing glances at me, wondering who I was. And they were. Not for the reason I thought they would, but I giggled to my fiancé. “They will all remember me tomorrow!” And I’m sure they did.
