    On Wednesday, I looked at patterns of ableism (particularly towards persons with visible disabilities) on 30 Rock.

    On Thursday, I covered “race baiting” in Virginia’s first “post-racial” election.

    On Friday, I wrote about “privilege hand-wringing” – when feminists look for cookies rather than growth when admitting one’s mistakes.

    Also today, I inaugurated a new regular feature, Foul-Up Fridays, that will serve as an accountability system when I mess up. The first post in the series is on my use of the word “dumb” and “bimbo” in application towards Britney Spears.

    Why women have sex?

    I don’t know about the “shameless self-promotion” part, because I just started this blog about a month ago, and I’m still sort of figuring out how it works (I learned how to hyperlink a couple weeks ago! w00t!). But here is the blog. I started it to chronicle some of my experiences in med school (I’m a first-year), but it’s sort of expanded to take on more general feminist topics. I’d love feedback!

    This week (well, on Monday – haven’t written much since then!) I wrote about:

    why “End Demand” (Swedish model) prostitution laws are harmful to women.

    The murder of Andrea Waddell, a trans sex worker in Brighton, England (a city not far from where I live, I picked up the story in the local press).

    This week at >re: Cycling – the Blog of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research, we’ve written about the Vulvagraphic show in New York, discrimination against fat women in seeking health care, why health care reform is a women’s issue, and World Menopause Day.

    The same thing that bothers me about the “can sex work be fun/fulfilling” argument, inspirational cliches, & the more college education will fix everything argument – some jobs just need to be done, and sometimes they suck.

    A couple of short posts:

    New NVA Newsletter – the National Vulvodynia Association put out a new newsletter with updates about studies, books, media, etc. If you or someone you know has experienced vulvar pain (as if anyone is allowed to admit that without getting the stinkeye) direct them there.

    An example of an article about FSD – someone wrote yet another typical example of an article about female sexual dysfunction. Which gets a lot of things wrong & offensive to people who really do want treatment. So much damning & condemnation for patients & doctors to deal with. So much sensationalism. So much denial.

    Hey, IPSA e-mailed me back! – I emailed a sex surrogacy organization some questions and they answered! Neat!

  21. October 25, 2009 at 11:52 am

    I wrote posts!

    “Rhymes with Witch”, about the fourth completed chapter in the sequel to Steve the Penguin.

    “There’s the old boys club again.”, about President Obama’s recent comments on men as parents.

    Some things I wrote about this week: In the Streets about street harassment, and Things That Happen, Things That Shouldn’t about domestic violence, seeing as how October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

    Over at FWD, I asked Where Are All the People With Disabilities on film and television.

  23. October 25, 2009 at 11:53 am

    I wrote up a few thoughts on literature and the Bechdel Test.

  24. October 25, 2009 at 11:56 am

    I’ve been on a bit of local kick as of late so I’d like to share how Alberta is foiling the Conservatives by going further to the right. (take that common sense) and how even up here in teh evil Canadian socialist wilderness neo-conservative thought is alive and well.

    This week in Evil Slutopia:

    ~We gave some tips for Breast Cancer Awareness month by reminding you to think before you pink this October.

    ~We addressed the American Life League’s totally creepy idea for carving pro-life pumpkins.

    ~Lilith’s 9-year-old daughter wrote her very first guest blog about sexist Swiffer commercials!

    ~We made the mistake of listening to Rush Limbaugh for a few minutes, and learned about how he totally helped one woman to see the light.

    I wrote about so-called chemical castration as a punishment for rapists. Turns out it’s a complete misnomer and not half as bad as it sounds. Meanwhile, Roma women are actually being forcibly sterilized, and yet that doesn’t seem to get as much attention as the plight of the poor rapists.

    Then I wrote a post about the awful driving culture in Austin (I moved here recently from California, where I could ride my bike most of the time).

    I also wrote about racist reactions to “KKK” appearing as a trending topic on Twitter.

    And finally, I’m breaking the feminist blogosphere mold by posting cute pictures not of a dog or a cat but of capybara I met yesterday.

    Never mind the circle of life, follow the circle of plastic from a factory in Beijing to a floating mass of garbage in the Atlantic. Halloween trinkets might come back to haunt you–how scary is that?
    And now that Christmas has been bought and gift-wrapped, capitalism is coming for a humble pagan holiday– unless we take it back! Homemade costumes and a thousand uses for toilet paper…

    If the front book cover of Jacqueline Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, and Nancy Reagan in silver one-pieces doing the cancan is the craziest thing you have ever seen, wait until you open the book. In Feisty First Ladies and Other Unforgettable White House Women, Autumn Stephens reveals stories about the United States First Ladies that you never learned in history class.

    The Good Karma Pendant from The Pretty Peacock is an interesting metaphor for my current relationship with feminism…At the time I knew little of dynamism and fluidity and the absence of a singular truth. I named the world I’d fuzzily conjured feminism, named those who inhabited this egalitarian world feminists (even if they didn’t refer to themselves in that way), and stood behind my ever-evolving creation like a shield. I put that name front-and-center. I dared anyone to take it away from me… until the day I took it away from myself because I no longer wanted a weapon, and I was tired of the fighting that came mostly from within the ranks.

    Over at good girls don’t, I wrote about sexism and mental illness, using my own experiences to consider how being a woman and having a mental illness are re-enforcing. The post is called Because I am a woman: women and mental illness.

  32. October 25, 2009 at 2:56 pm

    I wrote about this week’s Mad Men, the mostly betterness of this week’s Glee (but what was UP with Will using Artie as a prop??), and the divergence on how I think Senator Clemente on FlashForward is secretly Hillary Clinton.

    Date rape drug testers as deterrence highlights a situation where instant testing was used by a bartender as primary prevention which prevented an intended drugging and led to a man’s arrest.

    National survey on children’s exposure to violence looks at a report which includes the fact that those aged 12 to 19 were twice as likely to be victims of violent crime than the general population and how that relates to a type of sex crime many people minimize as being victimless.

    Criminal defense lawyers cast doubt on old DNA evidence highlights a reason given opposing John Doe indictments which if valid undermines the validity of many DNA exonerations.

    2. Anal Sex :Myths and Facts…. debunking some myths about butt sex:

  41. October 25, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    1. Sexual Reasoning – It’s OK to be a pre-op (or non-op) transsexual and still like having sex. I promise.
    2. Coming Out – I recall coming out to my parents, so many years ago.
    3. Reconciling Regret – I’m really struggling with regret and guilt over not transitioning earlier, and have been doing some writing on the subject.

    Women: the patriarchy needs your support!

    It’s a longish rant about how some women are active supporters of the patriarchy.

    Don’t dis your own people: how important it is not to denigrate people of your own race. This could also be extended to your own country, your own social class, or to your own village/town/suburb.
