A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

Et tu, Target?

Those of us who might've considered Target a "safe" place to spend our money (as opposed to, say, Wal-Mart, whose horrifically anti-labor, misogynistic, anti-environmental, anti-small business, anti-free speech policies are both legion and well-known) might want to think twice. Last month, a Target pharmacist in Missouri refused to fill a woman's prescription for emergency contraception, and the company has apparently failed either to discipline the pharmacist for failing to do dispense legal medication as prescribed by a doctor or to issue a policy against this kind of behavior, despite consumer protests.

Let's make them pay better attention. Planned Parenthood has an online petition you can sign here. You can also call 1-800-440-0680 to make a customer service report on this issue.
