Hope you're all well and have had a lovely weekend. My brain fog is beginning to lift, so I hope to bring you much writing this week.
First up: Laura of Adventures of a Young Feminist has debuted a whole new site! I wholly recommend your checking it out.
Two awesome posts from Dr. Martin, Medicine Woman this week: one on the anniversary of Katrina, and the other on rape when it's constructed as sex (see here also on that topic).
nixwilliams has a one-sentence soliloquy on community that's worth reading.
The Jaded Hippy takes fat-phobia in clothing to task.
kissmypineapple has an important message about supporting one of George Sodini's health insurance-less victims.
The Booze Tube has a great breakdown of different instances of rape in television.
This UK article on parenting trans children has some positive perspectives but much in the way of cissexist language.
meloukhia led me to this great post on how no one is under any obligation to be healthy (and isn't health subjective?) And speaking of this ain't livin, check out her expose-esque post on PETA.
On non-neurotypical pride.
Alas takes on the idea of the "great white hope".
