  1. A blog about feminism and politics, about giving a voice to the voiceless – fighting misogyny one day at a time…join me.

        I’m guessing the link is the one included under the poster’s username (Raging leftie) …

      • Hrovitnir says:

        It’s generally expected, though seldom spelled out these days, that you will include a link to a specific post, not just your whole blog. And generally preferred to have a link at all. :)

  2. This week, I wrote “The Pampering Trap”, where I discuss what it really means for a woman to be ‘pampered’ by her man.

  3. C.D. says:

    Nominations for the Hugo Awards (for Science Fiction) are due tonight, and I (FINALLY) have my (SUPER LAST MINUTE) recommendations. Including lots of female artists and writers for the fanwriter and artist categories (which are typically dominated by men)!

    Also, Galactic Suburbia put out their annual award for activism and/ or communication that advances the feminist conversation in the field of speculative fiction in 2012, and I’m on the honors list. SQUEEEEE.

  4. Kathy says:

    This week I posted a reaction to a few things I’d recently read about women and hip-hip.

    How come when a cop shoots his partner’s foot off no one gets to sue?

    Comets been letting me down since Kohoutek in the 70’s, Halley was a faint smudge in the 80’s, but still I believe–
    Comet Panstarrs March 12 and 13

    Maybe you, too, thought that Moonstruck (1987) was just a fluffy romantic comedy. But on reconsideration, it says something refreshing about sex among older people:

    Moonstruck Reconsidered

    Also: a film-inspired small amount of vintage sweater love.

  7. Pseudonym says:

    I am Pseudonym, hear me roar. I look like Clyde the yellow ghost from Pac-Man, and I similarly go off doing my own random thing rather than chase the pie-face. My favorite expression is “xargs!” which is a Unix command that reads arguments from standard input and uses them to build command lines to execute. My best friend is tac, a reverse cat.

  8. Matt Mes says:

    Slightly random, but if you know of anyone who might be interested I’m co-organising the following conference and there are two doctoral places available:

    Ruling Bishops and Ruling Eunuchs, c. 400-1800: The Gender of Authority: Celibate and Childless Men in Power

  9. I teach developmental (or “remedial”) writing at an urban community college. This week I’ve been thinking a lot about how we frame educational opportunities.

    First I looked at whether free online classes are an egalitarian utopia.

    Then I talked about the public view of remedial coursework.

  10. Tori says:

    Hair — I got my hair cut recently, noticed a mother trying to manage her daughter’s haircut, and thought about the times that’s happened to me.

    For Endometriosis Awareness Month, I wrote I Hate My Hips about a disease that goes further than chronic pain. (If you’re not sure what endometriosis is, I’m writing an introductory series at the PPAZ blog.)

    Trail Mix, a fun story about food.

  11. Jessie says:

    Morning everyone!

    I’m jumping back on the blogging bandwagon with a brainstorm of ideas that begin to address a #femfuture question posed by Courtney Martin:

    “How Google (and SEO) Can Help Spread Feminism”:

  12. Véronique says:

    Only one brief post in Fromage this week: my rant for International Women’s Day.

    Sick of it started with a tweet. I had been feeling that I ought to write something for IWD, and the tweet got me going. Please forgive any Feminism 101 in the hastily written piece. I grew up in the “legal equality” era, and it has taken time for me to really grasp just how much more there is to our struggle than that.

  13. Adam Z. says:

    This week: “Supporting the Tor Project.” In which I talk a little bit about the kinds of privilege underlying being able to blog, the importance of anonymity on the Internet as a bulwark against corporate and government meddling, and of course, the value of the Tor Project, and why one should support them.

  14. Mother Laura says:

    Hi all! Thanks for the opportunity and all these enticing links! Female Catholic bishop here, joining in for the first time with a radical and emotionally healthy take on the Prodigal Son parable.

  15. mxe354 says:

    I wrote about stereotypes and self-esteem from a trans* perspective.

  16. A (mostly) positive interaction with the TSA – Respect for a trans woman, from the TSA? I’m as surprised as anyone.

  17. delagar says:

    My push-back post on the notion that more government is always a bad idea: Government Is The Solution.

  18. I got into a good discussion of Discursive Markers of Submission, reflecting on verbal and non-verbal language patterns to indicate true or false humility, and how these vary (in both usage and significance) by gender.

    I reviewed a delightful little mystery by Dorothy Gilman, A Nun in the Closet. (No, not that kind of closet.)

    And I engaged with a post by Andrew Marr reflecting on how praying the psalms orients us towards the experience of victims in Gathering to give Life to Victims.

  19. Lauren says:

    I wrote about the privileging of “ideal victims” and the mainstream white feminist silence over the Onion’s tweet about Quvenzhané Wallis.

  20. Jem Bloomfield says:

    The Kardashians, Twilight and the Renaissance I blogged about an unexpected internet meme, and how it highlights the way high culture is often framed as identical to Anglo-Protestant culture

  21. Anna says:

    It’s Endometriosis Awareness Month, so we kicked March off with an Endo 101 post, which explains the basics of this relatively common but often misunderstood condition. It’s the first of a three-part series!

    Also, today is National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers — and the 20th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. David Gunn. Read a bit about anti-abortion violence, and if you like you can take the opportunity to express some appreciation for abortion providers in the comments.

  22. Elly says:

    Currently kickstarting an anthology of feminist bicycle science fiction. I’m pretty stoked about this, y’all. And pretty confident in saying it’s the first of it’s kind.

  23. Damiane says:

    This week I reviewed Ted Dekker’s Black, which was…not my favorite. It started out as potentially spiritual and ended up taking a hard left into the land of unsubtle Christian symbolism, with fun detours into making all the female characters little more than cheerleaders for the male lead.

    If anyone’s interested in talking about the weird-but-tiresome trend of appropriating civil rights dynamics and slapping them onto magical races in urban fantasy, my review of Right Hand Magic is definitely still up for discussion and suggestions.

  24. Gretchen says:

    Stuff I wrote this week:

    Haunted socks: On Pat Robertson warning someone to purge potential demons from any clothing bought from Goodwill

    Sexy old lady: On Greta Christina’s fabulous post about a “real woman” challenge on Project Runway

    Skeptics of Oz: The speaker line-up for the Skeptics of Oz conference happening March 16-17 in Wichita, KS

    Thoughts on the first Tropes vs. Women video: Self-explanatory

  25. Luz says:

    Round-up of posts from last week:

    Bridie wrote about the societal shame surrounding female infertility and how she faced it within herself.

    Jan’s post was about the gender dynamics of bicycling.

    Lucy wrote a post of five things she learned as a sex educator.

    We have the beginning of a series of posts by M. Lunas about consent in the BDSM community.

    Miss X challenged us to take political action on International Women’s Day.

  26. For International Women’s Day we’ve done a big post on gender in Urban Fantasy

    We’ve looked at some of our Pet Hates in Urban Fantasy

    We’ve started watching Grimm after the hiatus

    As well as our usual TV recaps, commentary and book reviews

  27. Holly says:

    I made this visual of the difference between whitewashing and colorblind casting in Hollywood and connected the dots between black actors being cast in white roles and the “magical negro” trope: Whitewashing, Colorblind Casting, and The Magical Negro

  28. pheenobarbidoll says:

    Still awesome.

  29. Heather says:

    A little random but here is a little bit on Satanism.

    I don’t have anything yet, but I wanted to write a compare and contrast blog post between Satanism and feminism. A lot of people from both communities don’t know anything about the other.

  30. BigSis says:

    Having been an avid follower of the feminist blogosphere for ages I finally decided to bite the bullet and start my own feminist blog (on International Women’s Day, no less!)

    I’m trying to create an alternative sex-ed by writing about the things girls should learn but never do in sex-ed, i.e. consent, body image, pornified images of sex, etc.

    This week I wrote about how women shouldn’t worry about always looking sexy or dressing to please their partner.

  31. Jess says:

    Hi I know I’m a little late, but I’m really new at this. So plz check out my website? It’s called House of Flout. Thanks :)

    A slightly different perspective on the “don’t change your last name when you marry” discussion: If your parents are divorced, so it really is just your dad’s last name
