Netiquette reminders:

  • Want to recommend someone else’s writing instead? Try the weekly signal-boosting thread.
  • we expect Content Notes as a courtesy to our readers for problematic content in linked posts and/or their comment threads (a habit of posting only triggering/disparaging links may annoy the Giraffe (you really don’t want to annoy the Giraffe))
  • extended discussion of self-promotion links on this thread is counter-productive for the intended signal-boosting –  the idea is for the promoted sites to get more traffic.  If it’s a side-discussion that would be off-topic/unwelcome/distressing on the other site, take it to #spillover after leaving a note on this thread redirecting others there.

  1. The Portrayal of Carol on The Walking Dead: Looking at how this character evolved from a battered wife to a potential leader and how she relates to the other female characters on the show.

    The Problem with Queenie on American Horror Story: American Horror Story has a long history of racism, sexism, ableism and sexism. Though Queenie is played by an excellent actress, the fat shaming and racism of the portrayal is something that cannot be ignored.

    Once Upon A Time: The Treatment of Regina: Regina is the evil queen and long term antagonist of the show; however it is clear that she is never to be understood to be the equal of the White characters on the show.

    Written-By-Numbers Drinking Game: Dystopian : Who doesn’t like a good drinking game? This week we look at some of the common problematic aspects of Dystopian fantasy vis a vis race, gender, sexuality, and ability.

  2. I have a new blog She Walks and Talks at

    I’m blogging about rape, rape culture, human trafficking, feminism, and anything else that comes to my mind.

  3. 315-pound football players can be bullied, people in wheelchairs can buy expensive cars, and poor people can cook with quinoa. A lot of assumptions about “those” people have been making the news lately.

  4. This week:

    The Travelling Uterus: a comic about hysteria.

    Things Anti-Choicers Say: Every Pro Choicer Has Already Been Born . Challenging the idea that to not have been born in the first place would be terrible, and that abortion is somehow unique in making that happen.

    Abortion Rights Campaign Weekly Roundup: Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Derby Names and Alter Egos. I love roller derby. I love derby names. I don’t love the obsession with our names and alter egos.

    Abortion:is it safe? Who decides? And what about birth control?: Challenging some antichoice concerns about abortion access. Like the idea that abortion is a horrible, painful, dangerous procedure. And the idea that husbands/boyfriends should have a say.

  6. Jem says:

    Something rotten in the state of SAMCRO: Hamlet and the Sons of Anarchy – as the start of a series on the TV show, and how its borrowing from Shakespeare shows up the problems and assumptions of modern TV, I wrote a piece on how the Sons of Anarchy reflects and reworks parts of Hamlet. Contains tattoos, epistemology, and masculine anxiety.

    AWESOME Voices: Stories of Ordained Women in the Evangelical Tradition – review of a new book by Evangelical women, discussing their experiences and the tensions which their identity involves.

  7. Femocracy says:

    First, I wrote a response to RH Reality Check’s investigation showing how the Koch brothers are funneling money to anti-choice groups.

    And, after Tuesday’s elections, I wrote about some of the divisions among women voters – especially between white women versus women of color and married versus unmarried women.

  8. Mhk18 says:

    I’ve been trying to post every day this month. As always, CN for discussion of various topics relating to mental illness, as well as bullying and violence.

  9. Anna says:

    Thinking about skipping a few periods now that the holiday season is looming? Or are you interested in minimizing menstruation throughout the year? Continuous contraception might be for you.

    Learn about birth control methods that allow you to have a period just once or a few times per year. What are the pros and cons? Is it safe? Is it natural? How many periods do we need, anyway?

  10. BroadBlogs says:

    Inspired by a Sociological Images piece:

    Men Need Clothing. Women Need To Be Sexy.

  11. Mother X says:

    “We Are On Our Way There” is about trying to give my smart, defiant, remarkable, and at-risk teenage daughter a reasonable balance of limits and freedom while also trying to reclaim my life. And, yes, as you’ve surely already guessed, this is the story of how I failed.

  12. delagar says:

    Over at delagar, I’ve written a review of Ursula Vernon’s new novella, Nine Goblins. Vernon is the creator of Digger, the web comic that won the Hugo last year.

  14. Sue says:

    For fun, I revisited Electra Woman and Dyna Girl – and found a 2001 unaired pilot for a remake/update starring Markie Post. It’s delightful.

    CONTENT NOTE: death of an adult child.

    Two women had a big impact on me this week. One is Illinois State Rep Naomi Jakobbsen who left the side of her dying son to cast a deciding vote for marriage equality. He died 10 minutes before she returned to his bedside.

    My vision for LGBTQ Municipal equality was published – there are issues far beyond marriage equality that involve local decision makers and includes a rigorous discussion of poverty.

    Finally, I did two interview this week with amazing LGBTQ women: Pixie told me about her first volunteer experience with the Pgh LGBTQ Community Center and Janet Granite explains how a local “gay bar” is an LGBTQ community center and should help fundraise to pay for services other people in the community need.

  15. delagar says:

    Oh! And also at delagar, my discussion of working class films I’ve been reviewing for inclusion on my Working Class Lit syllabus: Working Class Films: Winter’s Bone, et al.

    A late Fromage entry.

    Imagine my surprise (not for long) in You’ve got a long way to go, baby that progressives aren’t really on board with feminism.

    If you’re interested in the political convention that preceded that post, you can read Conventional wisdom.

  23. Mary says:

    Hello! My new documentary film, Lost In Living is screening for free at the University of Southern California on Monday, November 25th at 7pm. This is the link – – with all of the details.

    I followed four women – mothers and artists – for seven years as they grappled with reconciling their domestic life with a creative life. Two generations of women offer strikingly similar and different experiences to the work/life balance.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    I just wanted to say this since it’s Veterans Day in the U.S.:

    It would be cool if people supported the troops by contacting their senators and representatives to request that transgender people be allowed to serve openly in the military, and that transgender veterans be allowed to change the gender listed on their forms, in particular the DD-214 form, to reflect their gender identity. For example, if someone transitioned from male to female after they served, they should be able to change their old forms that list them as male. Here’s some further information:

  25. Anna P says:

    Another great thing to do for Veterans Day (And just in general) would be to contact your senators and tell them to support Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s legislation which would remove the military’s sexual assault prosecutions from the chain of command and “assign independent, trained, professional military prosecutors the task of prosecutorial decisions for any crime punishable by at least one year of imprisonment.”

    Here is some more info about that:
