Name my feminist tv blog!

What should I call my feminist TV blog?

A few friends and I are launching a blog which we plan to be about the feminist issues on, about, and around television. Of course the blog needs a name.

The only catch is at the moment I can't afford a domain so I'm looking for something unique and catchy that isn't going to be taken that combines elements of TV and feminist things.

"The Boob Tube" is very unfortunately already taken.

Thanks in advance!

Fade Away and Radiate was Blondie's ode to TV.

My Feminist TV Blog.

Or, possibly, My So-Called Feminist TV Blog. But that might be misinterpreted.

Simone on TV, after the famous French feminist.

Nielsdottir? (possibly too much of a stretch)

I also like Bechdel Test Pattern, The Female Gaze and The Second Set from above.

A Fish And A Bechdel which is a play on this famous quote.

Also, I'm really interested in reading this blog when it materializes. Will you be putting the link in your profile when that happens?

> get off the couch and make me a sandwich

Oooh, please don't. This one would make me not want to read your blog. I presume it's supposed to be ironic, but it's a slogan that doesn't need to be spread any further.

Sincerely,
humorless feminist

Thanks for all the answers - I wish I could pick more than one. Fell in love with "the female gaze" though and will be going with that.

And I will definitely be posting a link once it is up and running, but it's in its infancy right now! (Also, shameless plug, I'm looking for contributors if you are interested send me a MeMail)

Thanks for your interest.
