Additionally, here’s a working link to my take on the straight man who masqueraded as a gay man for a year, to replace the broken link I gave you last week. Happy Sunday (Well, Monday for me … )!
I blogged about ‘The End of Men, or maybe not’, about Hanna Rosin’s book.
Avoiding the Pitfalls of Halloween – in which I discuss sexist and racist Halloween costumes.
Everyone thinks of themselves as the Default Human. Some of us are more supported in that belief than others.
I have written about the Jimmy Savile scandal and how it illustrates rape culture [Trigger Warning]:
I had some weird thoughts about how men sometimes treat me differently because of my gender and how sometimes I get a lot of positive things because of my privilege – http://www.jmkeep.com/blog/2012/10/22/female-privilege/
This week I wrote about Taylor Swift’s answer to the “do you think you’re a feminist?” question, and a brief response to Ariel Meadow Stallings piece about “liberal bullying.”
This week I wrote about the problems with holding up Don Draper as a role model:
And a friend of mine wrote an awesome guest post about Modern Family:
I wrote about how I lost faith in the “pro-life” movement after growing up in evangelical and even serving as president of my university’s Students for Life chapter.
Here is my Heather Reads The Second Sex series.
Here is my Astrology Test series.
My Journey into Atheism.
My book review of the Game of Thrones.
Unfortunately in my book review I fail to focus in on the sexism that in the book. Ouu, new post! Stay tuned.
My method of dealing with Mourdock-induced anger and disgust: compare Mourdock’s statements with the rape-pregnancies committed by the ancient Greek gods in mythology.
Richard Mourdock, Rape, Pregnancy, and the Greek Gods
Trigger warnings for rape, abortion, and for republican candidates talking about rape and abortion.
Mitt Romney Goes Rogue on Birth Control
Mitt Romney leans feminist– He said every American woman should have access to contraception! Isn’t that Obamacare? Can we hold him to his word?

This week at re:Cycling, we had a guest post from Chella Quint about the Bodyform video (the one with the ‘fake’ CEO and the blue liquid) and how it’s not as innovative as it may seem at first blush, an analysis of that ‘PMS is a myth’ study that’s been getting so much media play; and a guest post from Holly Grigg-Spall about why sex-positive advocates should also be advocates for Fertility Awareness Methods. Plus our usual weekend links, with more of the week’s news in reproductive health.
Birth Control vs Woman Control
President Obama’s policy of access to birth control reduces abortion THE WRONG WAY! Women are free from the fear of unwanted pregnancy. What mischief might they get up to?

And don’t forget to get your nominations in for the October biblioblog carnival at firstname.lastname@example.org: last call.
I had one of those weeks. First I was sucked into the Richard Mourdock drama, wanting (sarcastically) to know how three radically anti-abortion would-be Indiana senators could have so much disagreement about exactly what God wants for my body.
But ultimately I decided that the real story is that I’m getting distracted by all this talk about God’s will and whether rape is mandated by God. The real story is that they’re trying to make abortion illegal, unsafe, and demonized in the public sphere. We need to talk about how WE NEED ABORTION:
“It rhymes with shmashmortion”: enough talk about exceptions

And an open letter to the weight loss sites that want to exchange links with me.
My two cents on the wage gap. I’m also interested in hearing your views as well!
A short rant on bullying apologia
I also found yet another example of someone trivializing sexual assault.
Shamelessly promoting the first release (download-only) from Lisa’s Hotcakes, a band in which all the members just happen to be female. Just don’t call us an “all-female” band.
I record, therefore I am is about doing the recording and what it means to me.
Love Hz unbound contains the EP and the individual songs, embedded from Soundcloud.
There is feminist content. You’ll find it if you listen!
“‘Linked Instead of Ranked’: Equality is Not a Zero-Sum Game“-Gloria Steinem talks about the importance of breaking down hierarchies and how not doing so puts equality movements at risk.
“Why Stop There, Mr. Mourdock: More on God’s Will“- A closer look at Mourdock’s political positions suggest that he isn’t very confident in God’s will when it comes to something other than abortion and rape.

At Muslimah Media Watch last week:
wood turtle wrote about a study on breastfeeding in Guinea, and about the pressures, assumptions, and barriers that breastfeeding women face.
Eren looked at where Muslim women fit (or don’t) in the cosmetics industry.
Nicole reviewed the recent book The Islamophobia Industry.
I ranted about the weird mix of breast cancer awareness and education about Muslim women found in Pink Hijab Day events.
