The article reports on the discussion of the things that make a true feminist in the blogosphere. Jill Filipovic of Feministe admitted to wearing high heels, spending on lip gloss, getting Brazilian bikini waxes, and liking the television program "Sex and the City." One blog, Molly Saves the Day, commented that by waxing and wearing heels, Filipovic was being an inappropriate feminist role model.
