When Feminists and Nine Moons Collide. I Mean Collude. Welcome Mfranti!

Rusty - March 28, 2011

Do you remember when Babe Ruth played for the Boston Red Sox? Of course you don’t, you only remember watching him play in rival Yankee pinstripes. So in the spirit of poaching a rival’s superstar, Nine Moons (a.k.a. Haters of all things misogynistic) is pleased to announce that we have acquired our Babe. Welcome to the team mfranti!!

As you know, mfranti has been hanging around the ‘nacle for years and writing at Feminist Mormon Housewives since 2008 (and has since left. We didn’t actually steal her, she was the top free agent on the market.) We’re not only excited for her thoughts and ideas but hopefully we can pick up some of the coveted “you go girl!” traffic we are so low on here at Nine Moons.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, that adding another perma will overwhelm our readers with too much content. But I would like to assuage your fears. I have personally asked everyone but MCQ to cut their posting frequency from “Pretty Much Never” to “Who?” which will open up the bandwidth so we can all enjoy mfranti’s posts without distraction.

Join me in welcoming mfranti!!


  1. Boy am I dumb, I thought you were already integrated. You mean mcq is not a girl? I for one welcome the Feminists view heck my mom and my wife were both Feminists and I learned a lot from both of them.

  3. You might consider you go women if you are talking about a intelligent Feminist ,girl is degrading.

  4. Nine Moons means nine innings, if that analogy goes any broader.

    Hurray! You go, Mel!

  19. I am a bit jealous.

    Comment by Chris H. — March 28, 2011 @ 8:37 pm

  20. Chris, I bet if Rusty knew you were available he would asked you to be the babe.

    Comment by mfranti — March 28, 2011 @ 8:45 pm

  21. LOL! I am just glad that you are moving up in the world.

  23. I for one, hope there is a tell-all post about the inner workings of FMH.

  24. Glad to hear the news, and I’ll echo what ESO said. : )

  25. Awesome news! I thought Rusty was the Babe at Nine Moons. He’s almost as good looking as Mel.

    Comment by ECS — March 29, 2011 @ 10:11 am

  26. Hooray! I’m so glad to see you landed at 9M, mel!

    Comment by Ziff — March 29, 2011 @ 10:55 pm

  27. OK here’s the tell all:

    Lisa and fMh-squeaky clean. There’s no better group of women to work with.

    I left because it was time to move on. These things happen if you don’t sign contracts,exchange vows and seal it with a kiss.

  28. Ooooo, I got ECS to comment on a blog. I feel special. :)

    Ziff, Thanks!

    Comment by mfranti — March 30, 2011 @ 6:41 am

  29. Notice how mfranti said there’s no better group of “women” to work with. That’s because now that she’s at 9M, there’s no better group of PEOPLE to work with!!

  30. mfranti,

    BTW – I saw you in concert in ’92 (awesome!) and would love to hear about the old days with The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy.
