Heroine of the week

posted by bitchphd
Matt, who says he got it from Anita, sent me a link to Diana's blog. Diana is apparently the Feminist Academic Scandal of the Moment, because a couple of sophomoric students (full disclosure: I have no idea if they were actually sophomores) told some hard-up NBC affiliate that she, Dr. Blaine, had--omg!!!--pictures of her breasts on her Flikr site! Up where Impressionable Young Minds and The Public and God and Everyone can see them! Tsk, tsk, Dr. Blaine. (Needless to say, the "news" article linked saves its readers the trouble of looking through her entire Flikr photo set and gives us the naked pictures directly, nipples airbrushed out for the better protection of God and Everyone.)

Shameless hussy that she is, though, Diana posts on said blog (why do people think that academics with blogs won't, in the end, have the last word?) a remarkably self-possessed "Boring Lecture from the Naked Lady." (Don't miss her earlier post about growing up while you're over there.) I'm too lazy, and my internet connection is too dialuppy, to bother to check out her no doubt fine naked self, but I think I'm a little bit in love.
