Re: “Venus's Next Wave

First of all, Miner clearly has an agenda here—the whole article reeks of trying to invent a scoop where there isn't one. Venus is a great zine with a rich history and a series of smart women at its helm, which is likely to continue with Beardsley and Russell. Beardsley brings the business savvy (as a good publisher should) and Russell brings the goods (vision, content, talent). Sidenote to those behind the ridiculous comments that confused "publisher" with "editor-in-chief"—there is a difference, and if you knew ANYTHING AT ALL about publishing, you'd know this.

Fascinating that Miner didn't talk to Russell for her thoughts on Venus's future. You'd think this would be a priority for a well-balanced article. And I'd be curious to find out what his connection is to this mysterious former candidate for Venus's ed-in-chief job (you know, the one who "ran the other way")... I actually laughed out loud at that part—please, no one ran the other way; it's called, "not getting the job."

It is so sad how quickly, and with such remarkable gusto, so-called feminists will turn on other women. So Bust is a good publication. Great. So is Venus. And guess what? There can be more than one quality publication out there for smart, progressive feminists. This article, and many of the comments that it has sparked, are truly pathetic. I, for one, am excited that Venus continues to evolve and I will read its latest issue with an open mind.
