    Two posts this week – possibly best record ever (she says, jinxing herself):

    1) Another nerdy post which may or may not get any responses, but it made me feel better to put the option out there: Ask Me Anything: Statistics Edition

    2) And my response to the events in Norway this past Friday. More emotional processing than analysis at this point: no words for Norway

    When I Get Good at It (TW for fat shaming) — Sometimes, I exercise in public, which correlates to others sometimes making inaccurate assumptions about my body.

    My Diet & My Feminism (TW for disordered eating) — Responding to another blogger’s question of whether dieting is anti-feminist.

    Gushing, my contribution to a birth control blog carnival coordinated by Planned Parenthood and the National Women’s Law Center.

    I’m also starting to review yoga DVDs and downloads with a focus on size acceptance and accommodation.

    For folks who are into asana-related stuff, there’s also a chair yoga installment and a new core anatomy post.

    I have been trying for months to start a blog. I am stuck on the name, of all ridiculous things, so I am imploring for help. Here’s a little bit about me:
    Feminist since birth. Mother, SV&DV survivor, remarried to a gentle loving soul. Embattled with ex trying to protect my daughter from his abuse – failiing thanks to the court system and dss.
    Vegan, veteran, cat-owner, prolific writer, in search of a career in feminism or social justice. Excellent public speaker, education developer, program manger and social media marketer.

    Volunteer sexual violence prevention educator in the schools – I adore mentoring and talking to teenage girls. Perpetually lost, wandering through life trying to make action out of an endless stream of ideas.
    I seek input, please.

    On trying to lose weight, even though I’m a big believer in HAES, and have been fat-shamed as a child and rewarded when thin, but weighing less may be the best thing for me to get better:
    http://onefemalegaze.wordpress.com/2011/07/22/ra-diaries-for-my-health/

    There are too many people who believe you can stay healthy just as long as you follow certain guidelines. But with a chronic condition, you can do everything right, and still have bad results. When magical thinking fails:

    This week on Gender Across Borders…

    Ashley began the week with a book review of Sapphire’s The Kid, the sequel to the infamous Push which the film Precious was based on.

    Guest GAB contributor H0lly Kearl shared an interview with Noor Jahan Akbar, an 19-year old Afghani activist who founded Young Women for Change to help combat street harassment in the nation.

    Judith wrote about The Impact of Paid Sick Leave Laws on Women, with special attention paid to policies that allow women paid leave when their children are sick.

    Guest GABber Silvia Ester Tum shares her work as a mentor and facilitator of the Abriendo Oportunidades program in rural Guatemala where she works to support, advocate for and aid young Maya women.

    In Women @ Africa’s Tech Revolution, contributor Emily Musil Church discusses the impact of media and technology on social movements and how this might work for/affect/inform African women in future revolutions.

    As usual, you can find all this and more at Gender Across Borders!

    This week I fell in love with an artist called Sophie Calle.

    I also spoke up about gendered language, and asked why ball sacks are associated with strength. I mean, vaginas can withstand a lot more! And aren’t boobs not amazing? How come we say amazeballs and not amazeboobs?

    And lastly, this week’s usual Sunday Hustle featured a round-up of dating advice for sapphic sistahs, art in relation to queer activism, and the fashion question for feminists and queers.

    Happy reading!

    Kristn, I like naming things (even if I’m not very good at it) and had a couple ideas (that are dumb puns, so I won’t say them), but wanted to ask if there was some theme you were going to be writing about, or if it was more of a hodgepodge/personal blog kind of thing.

    I’ve been pleased so far that I put out five new posts this week for my More Women in Skepticism blog, and came up with ideas for almost a month’s worth more. I think the most novel topics are these:

    #12 Don’t complain about what women do to help each other.

    #14 Don’t rely overmuch on the feelings of women already in skepticism

    Thank you to everyone who clicked through last week. It was very encouraging.

    My blog focuses on women in the music industry, specifically focusing on women who play guitar.

    This week, I reviewed the band Wild Flag’s performance at the Subterranean in Chicago.

    Wild Flag is guitarist Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia fame), drummer Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney and Quasi), guitarist Mary Timony (Helium), and keyboardist Rebecca Cole (The Minders).

    Shiny new blog! Be excited!
    I realized that while we talk a lot (both on this site and elsewhere) about how we socialize girls, but there is very little it seems possible to do to fix it. Enter… The Cool Aunt Project! The idea of this is for slightly older feminist women to share with teenagers the shit we wish we had been told. Honest, feminist, blunt, and to the point.
