Selfless Signal-Boosting Wednesday

These signal-boosting posts are a complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events. Use this thread for ICYMI links and anything else you think other readers might find interesting.

Especially welcome are links to those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  Please save the self-promotion links for this Sunday – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read, and activist/celebration events you long to attend, especially from those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.


Netiquette Guidelines:

  1. Effective signal boosting names the article author(s) and/or organising bodies.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (seconding/thirding etc is fine, adding extra Content Notes for the benefit of other readers is a community service, linking further/related reading is always welcome, but keep it short and sweet)
  4. If you have Reasons to not leave a response on a recommended article, don’t just dump it on this thread  ~ analytical discussions about various links belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.

    S. L. Huang has been doing great work lately.

    See today’s post for a fine example: Who Chooses SF Classics?

    delagar, thanks for the link. It seems to me that the way Octavia Butler gets pushed to the fringe of SF instead of being acknowledged alongside other giants of her era ties into a similar pattern to the fallout from Loncon’s choosing Jonathon Ross to present the Hugos the year (and his subsequent withdrawal following the massive “What The Hell!?!” reaction on Twitter and elsewhere) – the rewriting of the facts to make it look like a fringe angry feminist over-reaction instead of a collective grassroots outrage is textbook trivialisation.
