You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much over the past couple days! I would claim that this is because I was out getting drunk and partying, but this is me we’re talking about, so the actual answer is that I’ve just been incredibly lazy. However, I do not leave you without content! Just, you know, other people’s content.
Skepchick says smart things about femmephobia. (And links to NSWATM. People should link to NSWATM more. Fact.)
Ami Angelwings has been taking a bit of a break from blogging here for various personal reasons. However, she’s still saying some awesome shit over at her own blog. For instance, she talks about intent, why it is not fucking magic, and the effects of intent when you yourself fuck up. And she (TW for rape) calls out a victim-blaming asshole who blamed a rape survivor for not reporting his own rape.
Womanist Musings continues to discuss the racism and misandry within the prison-industrial complex.
s e smith worries that a (TW for rape) new mental health program in the military may present ordinary reactions to trauma (the example ou uses in the article is rape) as signs of weakness. I’m particularly concerned about this, from a masculist perspective, because mental health bootstrapping interacts badly with a male gender role that already discourages seeking help as a sign of weakness.
(TW for abuse) Dear Abby helps raise awareness of the abuse of men.
An interesting obituary of Van Lewis, a major anti-circumcision advocate (in Florida! My home state!).
Charlie Glickman talks about being a Sensitive New Age Guy. Some thoughts, for those of us who are still not sick of the Nice Guy(tm) thing.
NSWATM congratulates NWOSlave for winning (TW for rape and general stupidity) Manboobz Troll of the Year. Despite being banned, he occasionally comments on NSWATM opining that we all want to put men in a genderless box or something. This post includes a collection of his greatest hits maintained by Shaenon Garrity, and is fun for everyone, except for those who like having faith in humanity.
And, finally, Neil Gaiman leaves us with a New Year’s wish.
