I generally describe myself, to people who don’t know me, as something a lot like Liz Lemon. Maybe the product of a one-night stand between, like, Liz Lemon and Abed from Community. And, as I have mentioned before, like, a couple billion times, Liz Lemon is my feminist superhero. But after the latest episode of 30 Rock there’s been a lot of discussion and linking to articles old and new — is Liz Lemon actually a feminist? (And here’s another.) Does Liz Lemon/Tina Fey hate women (or at least, certain women)?
My answer to all of the following is this: Yes, Liz Lemon is still my feminist superhero. For exactly the reasons I’ve described before. And this episode did nothing to change that.
