What does one say? What does one do? 

Click to enlarge. This was distributed this morning as an announcement to our campus. Your suggestions for how to respond are invited in comments. I support campus free speech. I also think the comparison drawn is outrageous and disgusting. Beyond saying so, what does one say or do?

Women's studies faces the market test 

Bitch magazine is in trouble. The 12-year-old quarterly publication, which bills itself as a �feminist response to pulp culture� and has a following among women�s-studies scholars, says on its Web site that it needs $40,000 by October 15, or it will stop publishing. That�s what it costs, the editors say in a video posted on the site, to put out an issue of Bitch.

News of the magazine�s financial difficulty was posted today on a women�s studies e-mail list. One member of the list said the magazine�s title originally offended her, but she said she had come to appreciate it, calling the publication �courageous� and �refreshing.�
Source. I suggest a bake sale.
