Here's Burningbird at the top of her form, on links, gender, hardwiring, all that good stuff.

"Misunderestimated" and more

Good stuff around and about, on the perennial topic of "where are the women?": at misbehaving.net here and also here, pointing to Burningbird and HelenJane. Tons of cross-references in these, and interesting conversations as you dig into each.

I recently realized that I have mellowed considerably on the topic of being underestimated. (Or to borrow from Mr. Bush, "misunderestimated".) It no longer enrages me, rather I find myself often privately amused that the underestimating party hasn't bothered to dig deeper.

I'm speculating that this is one of the gracenotes of a woman's middle age (or middle age generally), along with an indifference to fashion.
