Best thing I’ve read (yet) about Ke$ha

Good stuff from Robin @ its-her-factory:

Messy, irrational feminism is a white woman’s feminism. Or, to use Jack Halberstam’s terms, gaga feminism is by, for, and about white women. Neoliberalism is, in some ways about the end of a certain type or structure of white heteromasculine privilege; privilege now works differently, so that just being phenotypically white and anatomically male do not automatically, by themselves, grant access to the same kind and degree of privilege that they used to guarantee (think about Halberstam’s older analysis of The Full Monty: deindustrialization means working-class white European men no longer have guaranteed inclusion in the economy, nor do they have guaranteed protection from sexual objectification, etc.).
