  1. An interesting discussion of male violence, healthy masculinity, and the myth that men can’t control themselves. I would have been happier if the author had mentioned that men can be victims of rape and abuse too, and that women can be perpetrators of all kinds of violence, but I suppose you can’t have everything.

    Ah, that would be Soraya Chemaly, the author of an article here on GMP where she stated that “only men can stop rape” and that individual stories about the “spectre of female rapists” distorts the real picture of rape culture. To her male victims and female perpetrators evidently doesn’t exist and even if they do they are an distraction and don’t really don’t matter in her larger picture.

  2. Oy, thanks for the link! Glad to see you back.

  3. Interesting set of links.

    On the issue of sexual orientation alteration: If it actually worked, I might be against banning it because I believe people should be able to control and alter their minds and bodies. I might alter myself (I’m currently straight) if there was no societal stigma. Given the non-working-ness of it and the way it’s pretty much always presented as forcing everybody to be straight, I think I agree though.

    At first I thought that was the Greek God Athena. That’s a really sad story, and one which ruined who would otherwise be my patron. It’s almost like an ancient allegory for sexism in the Nerdosphere.

  4. Nice to see you’ve recovered enough to start writing again, Ozy.
