Jen reads her hate mail

For your viewing pleasure, inspired by the similar video Richard Dawkins did (though I lack the awesome accent):

    The octopus squishable over your shoulder just makes this whole video.

    It serves the same function as the fireplace in the Dawkins video, I feel.

    Aw, dang it. Once more making me yearn for popularity so that I could receive – and respond to – my own hate mail. *le melodramatic sigh*Also, “airbrush your balls” totally made me LOL. I’d apologize, but then, you and your pals laughed harder than I did. :P[Sorry if you received about a dozen edit notifications for this comment; just couldn’t press the right freaking key tonight.]

    The laughter from the studio audience makes the video.

    I’ve seen that octopus or one just like it someplace before… Maybe an album cover, seems like it might have been posing with an atheist biologist blogger or something…

    Airbrush your balls?  Oh my…someone needs to autotune this video!

    Sounds like y’all are entering the giggly phase over at Blaghag HQ.

    I don’t get the ‘airbrush your balls’ comment. Are you supposed to airbrush some balls onto you, or should you airbrush your balls to looks like something else, like a Pink Floyd album for example.

    I love how these doofs still think the word “feminazi” is like, edgy or clever, or that it will actually fucking bother any of us. Of course it holds a special place in my Jewish feminist heart :P

    I think the soothing English accent is cancelled out by the sheer ALWP-ness going on in yours. Also, Dawkins had no octopus.

    These writers seem to be very interested in your love life.

    Speaking from the other side of the Atlantic, you actually do have an awesome accent.

    I like your accent…

    While it was amusing to watch you read your hate mail, I am sorry that you have to deal with such nonsense.

    I never had any intention of commenting on the looks or femininity of our blogger, even before, and especially in light of, “elevatorgate”.However, after watching that  video, I have to say the JMcR is a spitting image of my sister.  She’s got the same wavy hair (but brunette instead of blonde), the same mouth, eyebrows and chin, and the same voice in a lower pitch.  The resemblence is frightening.

    You have a squishable octopus! My friends bought be the Narwhale for graduation. :D

    As a british person, I find Dawkin’s accent offputtingly smug and condescending, and I actually prefer your accent.  :)
