    I read Beyonce’s new album as an ode to radical motherhood.

    Is worry about the postmodern condition the academic version of “kids these days” hand wringing?

    I’m investigating the way undergraduate students blog – whether about their academic course or (more usually) not: this week I posted a request to hear from people, and the first piece arising from the responses so far:

    Why would a guy screw a girl just so he can brag? And why’s that too often more important than sexual pleasure?

      This article definitely hit a chord.

      I really loved your blog! In fact, if I don’t get too lazy, seeing it inspired me to do a blog about my baking which combines narrative and recipes, starting with my experience making various cookies, cakes and brownie/blondies for my father-in-law while he was receiving chemotherapy and the process I made for making the marijuana infused butter which so helped which his chemo side effects.

        Oh, wow. Thanks, Fat Steve. The food I make is so wrapped up in the people I make it for. Blogging about it–telling those stories and sharing the recipes–has been a great experience. If you decide to start a baking blog, I hope you’ll link it here! I’d love to read it.

    Here’s a brief list of ways to make more meaningful new year’s resolutions.

    I also wrote about celebrities and food, but I’m not totally satisfied with the post, so I’d love to hear what other people think on the topic.

      Well, I can see one glaring problem. The title explicitly refers to Celebrities and ‘food,’ yet the picture shows a McDonald’s burger.

        Well, as the Fat Nutritionist would say, all foods are real foods.

          Well, as the Fat Nutritionist would say, all foods are real foods.

          Well, I didn’t use the word ‘real’ because I was, in fact, making a jokey comment, but also implying that I liked everything else about her blog post.

          However, I cannot go along with the Fat Nutritionist’s comment “If food is keeping someone, somewhere alive, then it is real enough,” especially since I just read about that guy who was trapped in a cave for 9 days and survived by drinking his own urine. It may be ‘real’ as in, it exists, but it is not food.

    I made a webcomic. It’s something I’ve only done once before, and am trying to work on.

    This one is about the notion of “common ground” being a premise, an agreement you make with someone while arguing about what is true, in order to move on to the conclusions you both think should be drawn from it.

    My own conclusions from doing it are: 1. It took way too long to make, and 2. I need to work on conveying ideas more effectively. :-) But I’m still pretty happy with it.

    As a white queer anti-racist feminist, I wrote about why it’s not my place to state that I’m an ally to people of color, Ani DiFranco’s non-apology, and offer links to some powerful voices belonging to both women of color and white feminists (including a white male) on the subjects of racism, intersectionality, and whiteness.
