Everyday Feminism posted this useful guide to listening as a person of privilege and an ally to social justice stuggles. I thought it was a nice breakdown and I agree that to simply listen and learn is valuable and sometimes the most appropriate position one can take. I also found it refreshing that cis white male understood this so well and took the time to write about it.
At Autostraddle, Rose wrote about a recent author interview that, yet again, has sparked discussion of sexism in literature/publication. I find the comparison with the treatment of female writers to that of celebrities interesting. It almost seems as if the same essential double standard exists in everything from entertainment to politics.
Also at Autostraddle: trans* characters in Sci Fi novels and gender studies in high schools (I think this is so rad)!
Do you read The Militant Baker? If you’re interested in body image you probably should!
Did you do anything for Take Back the Night? My school had a really awesome rally!
This bookstore is really ridiculously gorgeous.
