Featured Tumblr Blog: Notorious R.B.G.

UPDATE: After over two years, it's been brought to my attention that this is just a rip of The Notorious B.I.G., who is a black rap artist. Taking that part of black culture and basically totally mocking him and rap names to praise a privileged white woman is pretty gross. Please disregard this post and remember that also Ginsberg has made some pretty problematic rulings.

I haven't done one of these in a while. Because I forgot about it. But there's this blog, you see. It's

Notorious R.B.G.

This blog is dedicated to the honorable US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and how much of a total badass she is.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg really is one of my feminist crushes, because she's just so unapologetic. She's an inspiration. Like, if I could get her to bless my blog, it would be like a blessing from The Pope, only a billion times better and also no anti-choice, anti-LGBTQAIP+, or anti-women crap.

I was disappointed that she voted to end buffer zones around abortion clinics. That baffled me. But you know what they say about your faves.

Anyway, she's mostly awesome, and she totally deserves a dedicated blog. The best thing about it? Ruth Bader Ginsberg knows about the blog and the nickname "Notorious R.B.G.," and she loves it. Could she be any cooler?

There are t-shirts.

Unfortunately, I can't find any information on the person who runs the blog. I'm hoping they're black, otherwise there's some definite cultural appropriation happening here.
