I agree, but on the other hand may mail box is quite full with all nettime
discusions, so how can the others cope with that. It's imposible to read
all the things, while some mails are very (too) long. The thing about new
media is that text informations should be short and precise, the long
stories should be printed. I just can't use computer as a book, my eyes
get sore. It's a multimedia machine.

What is feminist art? It's a kind of statement. But on the other hand, if
you look global, there are about 51% of women and 49% of men on the world.
So women are majority (tipical in racism is dictatorship of majority on
minority). I'm O.K. with that, but I think a lot of feminist artist don't
get it. It was funny when a guy on the LEAF meeting in Liverpool this year
pointed out, when there was 'women-only' meeting, that it would be maybe
more relevant to have 'shy-only' meeting, because somebody said that one
of the women attributes is shyness. Are men not shy? Don't you think I can
make feminist art as you can do the macho one? Specialy on the net. Art
is trans-... Everything else is and excuse and pure activism. Sexism is
far out. And the worst is that personal shit is then abstracted to whole
population. Aren't we individuals? There are differences between people,
everyone is different person. And of course there are shitty women and
shitty men.

But I got your opinion and I'm supporting it.
