Hello all! It's been an interesting day. If you haven't checked out my post on ableist language and "blindness", please go check it out, particularly the well-written, well-thought-out conversation going on in my comments. I love my readers for asking questions and disagreeing in such an articulate and respectful manner.
Tomorrow you can (maybe) expect a post on drinking and (definitely) a recipe for avocado macaroni salad. But today, you should try these on for size:
Tami talks about the South African runner whose gender is being questioned. Via that article, I found an old and terrific post from Monica on cis woman Ciara being called a "tranny".
Ashley at Small Strokes considers healthy eating as a vegetarian.
Daisy recounts a scary health care town meeting.
Renee called to my attention this sickening display of transphobia from Conan O'Brien.
Jezebel covers the story of a girl bullied (or triggered by bullying) into anorexia.
Bitch Blog is doing a fun history of Lois Lane.
