And women said we were harsh??
"Among struggling journalists, wasting copy space is probably one of the most serious offenses there is, and Dyke magazine (Preston Hollow, NY) thus may be the greatest sinner of all. This visually enticing quarterly magazine abuses valuable news space by filling it with trite meanderings on such superficial subjects as dyke fashions and interior decorating. Lacking political analysis (even of dyke separatism) or the talents to express the written word, Dyke, fortunately still a baby in the lesbian publishing world, unfortunately displays the temperment of a spoiled brat."
review by Jackie St. Joan, Esq.
I feel vindicated somehow that in the 21st there are entire academic worlds of cultural studies including fashion and geography(which include theories of home,or,as the review calls it,"interior decoration.")
New York University, May 2012: Fashion Studies Today: History, Theory and Practice an international and interdisciplinary conference.
We were ahead of our time. And rather thick skinned, since reviews like the one in Our Right To Love made us laugh more than cry.
