Pinterest has grown quickly to become the 3rd largest social network on the web, and has a user base that’s over 80% women. So what does this mean for men, and for that matter, for women?

  1. Actually, thanks to Pinterest, I’ve gotten reacquainted with the feminism and gender issues I was once preoccupied with back in college. There are a LOT of awesome feminism boards on Pinterest. I even discovered your website because someone pinned your video about rape culture and the Stuebenville scandal [spelling?]. So yeah, doesn’t feel too hetero-normative to me. People just pin what they’re into. (Which sometimes includes cupcakes and obnoxious weight-loss plan photos).

  2. I love Pinterest. Not for the ‘oh my godess my home must look like this’ (as it dosen’t and I’m very happy with that) or cupcakes (I don’t get cupcake – they don’t even taste good) – but for cool pictures of knit and inspiration for knitting cool stuff (okay there are mostly a lot of not so cool pics). Cause I knit. I’m a knitter. NO – I’m not old. YES – I’m a feminist. I have a small bussiness selling yarn and patterns. I love to knit – but that’s not all of me.

    Pinterest are mostly for women and there are a lot of yoga-tea-towl-types there but there is also a lot of design-people and professional design-people – women and men.

    And I tell you I’m so happy that all the ‘look-she-has-big-boops’ pictures are somewere else.

    Hehe so funny, I just went to Pinterest… And I like your board on Wedding shoes :D Please make a video of you wearing silver shoes, pleeease
