    Did you know that 3 out of 4 females and half of males with chlamydia have no symptoms whatsoever? STDs are common—and so is not having symptoms!

    Read the Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona blog to get the scoop on STD symptoms—what to look out for, how likely you are to be asymptomatic, and how to protect yourself.

    This week, I write about the representation of women in the workplace, and why some of society’s values need to change.

    A bunch of science bloggers are entering the home stretch of our annual drive with DonorsChoose.org to fund projects for public school classrooms. In light of the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast, some of us have added projects in the affected areas to our challenges.

    I wrote “A Little Late for Spirit Day: Bully Culture” about some of the failings I’ve seen in society in dealing with bullies and bullying, especially in victim blaming and making it “somebody else’s problem”. It’s crossposted both to my Dreamwidth account and myLivejournal account

    Also, this isn’t self promotion, but for all the people here in fandom, fandomaid on livejournal is running a charity auction to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Check it out.

    I’ve had a couple arguments with friends over whether or not it is “useful” to call out Mitt Romney’s campaign for racism, and I ended up writing a long rant on why YES, IT IS USEFUL TO CALL MITT ROMNEY OUT.

    Hopefully this will be the last post I ever publish on Mitt Romney, because he will LOSE the election and I will never ever ever have to think about him again.

    I took a look at Swiffer’s new “Man Up, Clean Up” campaign which is tapping into the market of men who clean house but also making some commentary about gender disparity in household duties.

    I also wrote a post about my experience with a zombie-themed obstacle 5k. I didn’t “survive,” but I survived!

    Is being with a married man a feminist issue? Trigger Warning these posts are very personal and I usually don’t post anything personal, but its been nagging at me recently.

    I made (or rather, adapted) this a while ago, but it became (sort of) relevant again with Todd Akin’s weird ad featuring a rape survivor. Since I can’t just insert the picture, here is a link to where I posted it on my blog.

    (It’s President Madagascar upon learning that there has been a legitimate rape.)

    1. eteokretan
      eteokretan November 4, 2012 at 5:22 pm |

      Weird. She says she’s had an abortion; she says she’s been raped. But she doesn’t say that the rape was the cause of the pregnancy, though she seems to be trying to connect them. I’ve seen her in an ad for Akin in the past, where she talks about the abortion and regretting it–with no talk of the rape whatsoever.

    I wrote a brief about a new study exploring the relationship between teen smart phone use and sexual activity on my personal blog, and on my fellowship site I wrote about the criminalization of HIV and how it impacts public health efforts. From two weeks ago, I wasn’t able to shameless self-promote, but Feministe readers may be interested in a piece I wrote about comprehensive sex ed as well. Hope everyone impacted by Sandy is doing ok.

      It’s a great study; thank you. But in order to be accurate, I wish people would remember that “LGBT” is not an interchangeable synonym for “gay and lesbian” — which is what this study was about. Nobody does studies about trans parents.

        Every one of my comments so far this evening has gone into moderation, so this is just a test.

        This, this, this. I wish people would just say ‘same-sex parents’ when that’s what they mean.

        Rhoanna November 6, 2012 at 6:08 pm |

        Well, it was actually about same-sex parents. Which isn’t the same as gay or lesbian, either. But I hear you about the LGBT acronym, and the lack of studies about trans parents.

      Don’t worry about that- posts with loads of links often end up in the mod queue for a while. My shameless self-promotion always ends up there but they pop ‘em up as soon as they get the chance :)

        Anjasa November 5, 2012 at 5:45 am |

        It was just the one post, but I think it was the title triggering it.

        I had the issue before. I can’t remember what word I finally figured out was doing it, but it was just gone. I couldn’t even see it as awaiting moderation, which was the strange bit.

    Today, I wrote an open letter to Americans thinking of voting third party, from an Irish feminist atheist leftie queer.

    Earlier this week:

    Hey, Ireland! Let’s talk about racism. Here. NOW. TW for hella racism for that one. I call out this place on, well, racism.

    Sex work, Exploitation, and Slavery, and asking why on earth we insist on conflating the three?

    The Introverted Polyamorist. No, it’s not a contradiction in terms.

    Introversion, Social Awkwardness and Activism. Pointing out the differences between the first two, and asking questions about how to use introverted traits as activists.

    Oh! And finally! Consider the Tea Cosy just got its very own Facebook page! Do pop over, say hello, and maybe give us a ‘like’ if you fancy.

    I wondered why Romney’s courtship of white voters — and his nearly all-white coalition — is not “identity politics.” (And almost on cue, Politico essentially says that if Obama wins, he will have won women, blacks, Latinos, and highly educated urban whites, but he won’t have a mandate because he didn’t win white guys. )

    I wrote “Boxes and Boxes: why bother with orientation at all?” which explains some of the reasoning for creating boxes and categories when other ones won’t fit, and how labels are about reclaiming power over your own identity.
