    I LOVE that response from the tattoo artist. I considered reading the original piece but decided I didn’t want to give it a page view. I’ve long had a tentative relationship with Jezebel, so this kind of solidified my feelings of not wanting to read them anymore.

    Also, thanks for the shout out! It makes me feel special, and I really appreciate it.

      It’s such a struggle to want to view the original piece but not give it the popularity. I’m always for hearing both sides of a story, but in this case I’m with the tattoo artist 100%. On top of it all, people can’t even have the grace, sadly enough, to not trash a person’s business when they don’t agree or get their way.

      You are so welcome! I love your posts and they’re always super helpful :)

    Loved the article on feminism! I definitely share so many of the points brought up in the article – a great read! That tattoo artist sounds like a great guy; not only did he make a good decision, but he handled her attack so well. Good on him! Also, the way women have died in literature article was just hilarious. 😀
