FMHLisa is soliciting funds to keep FMH online, and all people eager to subvert the LDS Church will be eager to do so. FMHLisa says:

*Or consider purchasing an fMh t-shirt or bag. (We get one dollar per item). I love the women’s raglan myself. Order one size larger (they run small). The bags are perfect for cheerioes, quiet toys, and subtle subversion that’ll bring a smile to your face. Remember mother’s day is coming up (may I suggest the fMh thong for grandma).
Yeah, be tres chic in Sacrament Meeting with your quiet toys, cheerios for the toddlers, and FMH tote bag that lets everyone hip know you actively support the overthrow of the very oppressive patriarchy you are currently participating in.

Either FMHLisa has finally come clean on what her agenda is, or she doesn't know what the word "subvert" means. Not sure which is more likely, given FMH is a safe harbor for malcontents and Ex-Mos.

Either way, Granny G-strings aren't the kind of market branding that is likely to generate revenue (I would ask Dazzle to Photoshop a spoof on that one, but it would result in so many people spontaneously gouging out their eyeballs with whatever sharp instrument is immediately available it would effectively destroy the Bloggernacle's readership.), so maybe someone with some marketing experience will be kind enough to assist Ms. Subversion in coming up with a better ploy.

Look on the bright side, snarkimus. In exchange for your $10.00 donation, fMhLisa will write a post on a topic you choose, within "standard restrictions on privacy and good taste".

That is huge. She has now recognized privacy and good taste, at least as abstract concepts. For twenty dollars, she might even decide to describe what she means when she says good taste. It is impossible to understand what she means by reading her blog.

I'll give Quimby fifty bucks if she'll post a picture.

Make it $100--US, not Australian--if she does it wearing a tshirt that says "ERA Sucks" or "This is what a female male-chauvinist looks like"

Y'all do know it's possible to subvert certain unhealthy gender stereotypes which have sprung up in the LDS culture but which are neither inherent nor helpful in furthering doctrine, right?

As for granny and a thong, I'm sure mine would conclude that it was some sort of fancy headband, and thus cause general mayhem at choir practice. Heh.

I love you Janet (like a sister).

Thanks, SP :). I have to admit I've been giggling about the notion of giving my grandma--or better yet, my mom--an FMH thong.

If you do, you will need to give instructions with it, as I doubt you would want to do a live demo.
